I have had a lovely day today. My day involved only a small amount of work, lots of sunshine, a trip to Margate and a day out with Rebecca.
I started this gloriously sunny day with a large green smoothie featuring 6 very ripe bananas, swiss chard from the garden, frozen blueberries, an avocado, blue green algae and hemp milk. I shared this amount with Harvey. Well it was meant to be green but it looked grey! Some coconut sprinkled on top helped make it look a bit more appetising and Harvey and I both enjoyed it. I went to Ramsgate to go through some work we are having done. Matt is staying at the house and is busy painting the shabby bits – it will look great when he has finished. Rebecca came to see me in Thanet today which made me very happy. She came on the train to Ramsgate and after watching Murray lose the French Open (disappointed !!!) we strolled over to the Marina and had lunch in Miles Bar where we had a window seat over looking the marina. We had the same meal actually; chunky chips, a side salad and we shared some olives. Mine was washed down with a very quaffable bottle of Sol lager. The sea was a lovely colour today and as always, we enjoyed watching the boats pottering about in the marina. After lunch we headed to Margate. Our destination was the Turner art gallery. We went to see the Grayson Perry exhibition and I was completely fascinated by his work. Rebecca was a great person to go with because she knew lots about his work and had even met him before! This was an excellent exhibition, which mainly featured ceramics, etchings and textiles. I was stunned by his versatility of mediums and styles and loved some of his techniques, in particular the collages of cuttings from print glued on to a sketchbook and then water-colour applied and blended in with the collage. I also really liked the etchings. It really was worth a visit. The large space on the ground floor hosted a large cymbal arrangement – as you do. We had a cuppa before heading home – fresh lemon and ginger with a little honey. This beach was quiet and so was this but Margate Main Beach was full of people enjoying the warmth and sunshine. Thank you for visiting Rebecca, I had a really lovely day which was very much needed. I should have been hungry when I got home as I didn’t eat much today but 2 apples did the trick for supper so I left it at that.
I have another wonderful day to look forward to tomorrow too 🙂
