View Full Version : Sorry Mo!

I must present my apologies to Mo and everyone else for not being around to open the Weekly Sketches on Monday ... I'm afraid I was in Prague having a shamefully wonderful time :D

I had intended to send a message to Dawn and Mo before I left asking one of you to cover for me, but was so preoccupied with holiday preparations, house-buying, mortgage meetings and the redundancies happening at my workplace that in the craziness of Friday it genuinely slipped my mind :(

Sorry all. Mo, I'll be there next week to open the thread.

Prague! How wonderful--will you be posting pictures on the image gallery, or something? Those of us with limited travel budgets would love to see them!

Thanks for the welcome back :) I didn't get the chance to do any pastelling in Prague but I did take loads of photos with my new digital camera ... will share some with you when they're uploaded! (It was straight back to the office today so I've been pressed for time.)

Sadly we're not moving to the City of a Hundred Spires ... but we are buying a much lovelier house than we could ever afford in Cambridge, about 15 miles outside the city. Husband and I went through the house-buying thing once before but it fell through a fortnight before completion and it's taken us two years to summon up the strength to do it all again, so I'm not officially allowing myself to be excited ... but unofficially I'm jumping up and down :D

In the meantime, I need to get pastelling again!!

I'll keep my fingers crossed that all goes smoothly and well for you this time E-J... good luck:)

Looking forward to your pics....and of course your pastel paintings... cracking the whip now.:D

09-24-2003, 05:51 PM
yeah, good luck E-J!!! (will someone take that whip away from Mo...someone could get HURT!!!) :D :evil: :p

Cool news EJ about your move. I'm slowly catching up with people and things on WC and have to say your painting of Prague (in the weekly sketches) is great!!! Congratulations and I hope everything goes smoothly for you.
