    Thank you for your concern about Julie and sharing your amazing artwork. Both such generous actions typical of you from what I have observed from your posts and PMs. Take good care of yourself Mr G, Mum and Katie

    I am really impressed - you are so organised. It sounds the perfect set up for Julie to self isolate but not be isolated from the family.

    update.
    spoke to niece, (Sil passed away a few years back)
    very upset,.
    seems he had some family up there in attendance..
    said they was in room to say goodbye, i said thank god it wasn't Covid.
    she said it was.. every body in full suits etc
    then she broke down, as they might be there, but so see them all looking alike &
    dressed like THAT.......heart breaks for here.
    good girl, good heart ..says at least he has family so many will not..

    Knows she can't go up,
    just awaiting more news.

    Thanks. Right now she is fine, just tired. We are lucky and just dealing with the same issues as thousands (750.000 and counting) of others. We have no jobs to lose, no mortgage to pay. So we are far, far better off than most. Unless and until her condition changes all is ok if not completely stress free.Hug was kind though.

    @jjraak so sorry to hear your news - does your niece live near enough to you so that you are able to come alongside her to offer support?

    @ianpspurs I'm sorry I also missed your post re Julie, tough situation for you and Julie, thinking of you.
    @jjraak sorry to hear your news and the terrible turmoil your family must all be in, take care, hugs my friend.

    @gennepher another spectacular piece of art, great series, very impressed.
    @geefull liked both of your days art, some fine skills you have there.

    Here is my watercolour for today, I went a Bike Ride for a hour on bridleways over the heathland, never saw a soul it was as though the world around me had emptied, felt very lonely, very hostile, such a strange feeling, these old Stock Fences all bent and rusty inspired today's painting. A4 watercolour.
