Having relocated from Kent to North Yorkshire we've had a fair few visits from family, friends and new acquaintances that have fast become friends too.
We getting quite a reputation for our breakfasts too!
Not all the visits have been seemlessly smooth though. We've been locked out, overstays, taxi service and more.
But overall it's a great thing to have lovely people come and stay and enjoy our company. Our daughter loves it and we're fast approaches the time of the year when more and more requests arrive! It's a full time job just juggling dates with busy people so that everyone can come and enjoy the area.
I just wish we had a second bathroom for us to hide away in at times!
I write this now to serve a warning to those coming to stay with us in the future: I am a full time artist lucky enough to work from home, you can come and see me in the studio but if I stop working, crack the whip and make me return to creating!
Oh and I'm on the look out for would be models who wouldn't mind me portraying their form via my figurative works. There's a slice of the pie for ever sold piece for those who partake! And it's all done in the best possible taste!
