Captain Rupert has been looking bored in his patio compound. I have stopped letting him in the house as much although I know he really wants to come in. He just can't resist chewing all K's electric cables, I quickly fixed the last one that I discovered when the radio did not turn on.

So I have taken him out into the rest of the garden on his lead. Its too big just to let him run free unfortunately. His looking forward to his new garden which will be fairly big but safe for rabbits to have fun hopping around. Today he just loved all the long frosty grass he bounced along like a Kangaroo and stopped for little tasty bites of grass.
Terry the duck has safely arrived at my parents for her two week holiday. Captain Rupert can't wait to meet her and see rabbit again. They are planning what vegetarian feasts they could have for Christmas. Ducks favourite food seems to be cucumber soup, but I'm not sure her rabbit friends would like that too much.

This is Bramble driving down the country lanes back to his lovely country cottage, after a really tasty picnic. Hope Bramble approves of his very shiny red car. Bramble is a lovely cuddle looking dog who lives in London. I thought I would wait till I finished this one so Bramble could not peek.

Apon a bicycle made for two

Monday, December 04, 2006

We went to London on Sunday, I just could not wait to go up and down some escalator. I'm not sure why maybe because we live in the country and there are not any even in the nearby towns. I also saw the slides at the Tate Modern but I did not get to go down you have to book timed tickets and the queue was very long. K left me in the book department in Selfridges. It was so packed I thought I would never be able to find him again. He surprised me by coming back with this rose. Not sure the paint glass does it justice.

This picture is called 'bicycle made for two'that I'm trying to paint at the moment. I brought a new paint box on Sunday. My lovely old one which was my grandma's has been everywhere with us from Scotland to Italy to South America. So I'm looking forward to using a much smaller one that fits in a handbag easily. I only ever use 4 or 5 colours so I don't need to be lugging that around. My trusty old one will still get used I will carry on taking to my children's art lessons. In the picture is the brush case my dad gave me years ago he took out all his compasses and technical drawing stuff and its perfect for most brushes.

I have been meaning to scan in the sharks teeth from the beach at the rocks. There is a big sandy cliff from a sand deposited millions of years ago in a otherwise muddy river. As it erodes it releases the teeth from sharks that swam there all that time ago.

Today with have been on another long walk down around the south downs. We did the walk last year and finished in the dark, making a fatal mistake of not checking the batteries in the head torch.

So we thought we would do it back to front from last time. We actually cut it a little short but it was still a lovely walk. Finishing by the light of the moon and a little extra help from a head torch with batteries.

Captain Rupert is feeling a little sad at not having rabbit to stay anymore, I have told him they will see each other again at christmas and they will be having a real life duck vistor to the hutch as well. It did not cheer him up too much but I'm giving him lots of extra hugs. Captain Rupert is just a little in the bad books though becuase he has chewed through K's mobile phone charger
