Rose William Morris – a painting a day


   size 6 in x 4.5 in 15cm x 12cm watercolour on heavy weight rag paper

I went to the dentist today and had to wait an hour and forty five minutes in a hot waiting room,for the first part of the wait we were told to go away and get a drink (black tea only).

When we eventually found the cafe a gang of young men were beginning a” belly buster challenge”. The cafe is doing this as a special on days when England are playing in the world cup. One of them was served the challenge on two plates on a tray. The job looked impossible but he stuck to it manfully despite looking ill and finding it harder and harder to swallow. The meal consisted of:

3 fried eggs (that would be me out of the running for a start)

3 rashers of bacon,

3 sausages

Black pudding

2 hash browns,



Tomoato mash (not sure what that is),

Bubble and squeak


And he washed it down with a coke!!! There was a point at which his mates jumped up from the table thinking he was going to spew, but he didn’t. He finished it all.

All the above cost him nothing as the price was refunded if it was eaten and donated to charity if there was anything left. An older customer made a quip across the room about one more wafer thin slice, the reference and the sketch had to be explained round the table. I sipped my black tea and felt my age, the chap who made the Monty Python reference was grey haired and balding. Probably younger than me then.

Here is a painting of a David Austin climbing rose William Morris which I got from Sainsburys for £5.00

I have also added a photo of a bit of flower bed which looks good at the moment. The Campanula perscifolia were skulking further back and didn’t flower. So this spring I dug them up and hauled them forward,result:
