Here's a picture of Clare painting a new item for our wall - it's taken from a Viking longship featured in a recent Archaeology magazine.

Clare painting longship

Here's the picture itself in its current, early state, taken just before we left for Hastings..

The painting

We went down at Hastings yesterday to collect Clare's niece's cat, Shadow. The one which keeps running back to their previous house. Try that from Andover!


Shadow spent the evening whining piteously and was locked in the kitchen overnight with Iams and litter.

This morning, it had pulled the bin over in search of old chicken bones, and was still whining piteously. It is currently hiding under the bed.

They say the first three days are the worst.
