Thursday 26th June 2014 (old journal edit as it's simpler to do rather than copy/pasting so much stuff from previous ones).
I had been without my home broadband for a few weeks and was getting by through accessing the internet on my cellphone - not an ideal way to manage groups on DA. It's been a long ordeal involving a thunder/lightning storm, several calls to Orange, a new router, a new phone, a BT engineer, and my basically needing to move all the computer equipment to the other side of my bedtoom where the phone socket is (but no power). Anyway, it's all sorted Carole's techno talk: 'filter thingy', 'Adaptor-doodah that connects the phone cable and other thingies and acts as an extension lead to plug things into', ... is it any wonder the Indian lady from Orange was losing her patience with me?
And even more wonderful, I got a DD yesterday for 'A Widow's Weeds'!!! I am so heartened and deeply touched. It is a work that meant a lot to me when I was working on it and it's a work which seemed overlooked whenever I exhibited it in real life (people seem to rate 'Little Red Riding Hood' and other less detailed works of mine more highly). So this DD means a great deal to me. Thank you so much to NebelelfeNaemy for suggesting it, and for jane-beata for picking it as a DD. And many thanks to everyone who faved and commented, I hope to respond to all the comments in due course
Swindon Open Studios is happening again in September and I hope to be taking part. I sent off a cheque with my registration and now I have my fingers crossed the cheque has been processed ok ... my cashflow issues are another story A lesson in not forgetting a lot of annual subscriptions (like Norton Anti Virus renewal) hit the bank account in June! Thankfully, it's payday tomorrow

My 'Little Red Riding Hood' deviation is available as a print through ArtistsForCharity & through my own account, it will be restored exclusively as print to Artistsforcharity once someone begins managing that account again. I've contacted several people about that neglected charity account, but as yet, nobody has bothered to reply.
