I am taking my vitamins, drinking my OJ and eating my oranges but as yet there has been no impact on this bloody cold or whatever it is that I have.Due to Beauty being back at school ,I am getting a lot more rest but the effects as yet have not kicked in.It is embarrassing more than anything and I just hate coughing and spluttering in public.However,I do feel a lot more awake than I have in the past few weeks so perhaps things are getting better.
The weather is still wet and miserable but as I don't seem to be getting out much recently it is not too much of a problem.It gets dark too quickly after school for Beauty to go to the park just yet but her child minder comes and takes her out on a Sunday morning and if it is not raining then they walk around the lake and go for and ice cream which is good.
I started back to my art class on Monday and I spent the morning huddled in my coat and scarf shivering, the town where I go to my art class is in the Rhymney Valley and whilst not very far from where I live it is definitely colder as you go up the valley.My subject at the moment in art is portraiture and I am going to do a self portrait in the style of the Welsh Artist Evan Charlton who was associated with the British Surrealist Movement. I know that artists such as Dali and Kahlo were surrealists but some of their work is a bit too OTT for me and Evan Charlton , whilst of the Surrealistic movement , is less in your face(excuse the pun). The majority of Frida Kahlo's work was definitely not intended to be on display in private homes.
