New addition to my Links

At long last my very good friend, Julie Askew, has now got a blog page. If you've not seen Julie's work before, please follow the link and discover her amazing talent... I highly recommend a look.

Apart from being one of my closest friends; it was Julie that introduced me to teaching art on ships, something for which I shall always be grateful to her for. In 2002 and 2003 she took me along as her assistant whilst she worked as art tutor/presenter on two 3 week and two 5 week 'sections' of the world cruises with P&O. As a result of those trips (and the two I did as a tutor myself in 2008 and 2009), I have seen much more of this planet than I ever dreamed I would get to see. Such fantastic experiences and memories that I shall treasure always.

Happy New Year

It's been a while since my last post and so I thought as it's the first day of the new year and indeed, the new decade, I thought I ought to get typing.

To all my regular visitors, those that pop in occasionally and the 'one-timers', thank you for stopping by over the past year. I must strive to try and post more over the coming months, a new year's resolution perhaps; I got a little lax towards the end of 2009.

I have no cruise trip, working or otherwise, to look forward to this year but with fingers crossed and wind in the right direction along with a little organisation from me, I have at least one exciting project I'd really like to get off the ground on. So I will keep you posted on whether or not that is likely to happen and then if it does, the progress of it all.

Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, if you celebrate it, and that your New Year celebrations haven't resulted in too much need for recovery or have dampened your spirits too much today.

Here's to a happy, healthy and prosperous 2010 for us all.

Many thanks
