A Drawing A Day – Week 18

Well another week has passed, this one was uneventful and unremarkable so there is not much to say. We had a great day out this Monday (a holiday in the UK) and visited Anglesey Abbey outside Cambridge.  There are wonderful grounds and we walked around the perimeter, we went in the watermill and watched the wheat being ground into flour with the whole mill vibrating with the force of the water pushing round the mill-stones; very evocative of the ‘olden days’.  This week included the momentous day when I completed the first third of the project, something to celebrate I think.  This weeks offerings:

    These sketches are all lovely. I was amused by your spring cleaning friend! I keep meaning to go to Anglesey Abbey especially as they have lots of snowdrops early in the year.

      Yes, Anglesey Abbey is well worth a visit, we visited last year during the Dahlia Festival also. The silver birches are beautiful now, but I have been told are spectacular in the dead of winter. I wish my spring cleaning friend did not need me to keep her company all the time!

    The picture of John watching snooker made me smile. Saw Lesley on tuesday – she told me where you’re moving to in Ipswich. I’m impressed that you can go to Anglesey Abbey and not get caught up in all the packing. Shame I won’t be felting tonight, but the nightingales are calling. Mind you, they are calling pretty loudly along Flordon Road, David and I went up at 7am this morning with our green tea and listened for half an hour. One was singing just a few yards away with another having a rather juvenile go at the song. In the quarry a thrush made a pretty good impression of a nightingale – not quite as melodic though – and kept falling into thrush like repetition.
