Hackforth Sleep-Over

Credit Sarah

Me and Kathryn spent the weekend up at my folks; we were given the opportunity to escape the smoke and head out to the big green. Took this offer with both hands and were picked up around 10:30 Saturday after a sleepless night.

S* & B* (the smallest of our branch of the B*) were there; the little tykes call me Uncle Sponge, haha!

BBQ was eaten and I was pyjama’d ready for a quiet night - kids had other plans with the drama of going to bed; I can’t sleep” and bickering was dealt with by Aunty Al.

I had my camera and managed to snap this horse with the Diana F+ Lens -it is such a fun lens…

Ben took his first ever photo - it was of me. You will see that below and for the sake of fairness I used Sarah’s image of me for the Featured image for this Blog Post.

And then we were in for the night.

I was plugged into BBC Introducing York because they promised to play a track of mine. The track was blogged about previously on Ijo Pona but I will share the track again below…

Then is was bed at a sensible time due to not having slept the night before.

Sunday; breakfast, Zoomy mayhem. I ended up going back to sleep - B* & S* were shouting in my ear, tickling me and being a pain in the arse but they are just kids and that is the way of things. I am enjoying my role as an Uncle; you can return the children at the end of the day and not always have to put them to bed.

A light lunch and then home.

I checked my email and found this -

I have been invited to exhibit at the Harrogate Open and I am so happy with this - it really does verify what I do for a hobby, and could be a backup career.

I need to get the works printed, but I have plenty of time…

Chair snooze, crooked neck snore-fest for the rest of the evening - I have been battered by children and the heat this weekend and it really took it out of me. I have woken up as Kathryn heads to bed after a can of beer knowing that I am quite good at my Art, my passion - this means the world to me.
