ANTONIA ROLLS ARTIST EXTRAORDINAIRE NEWS. An account of an Artist and Mother in Bognor Regis. Worthwhile, but exhausting, so pour the tea and make yourself comfortable...(this painting is a family portrait, about 2'x 3', oil on wood. It is the Ross Family, each family member with items that describe them best. And at the front, on the grass on the right hand side, is a photo of Grandma, sadly missed.)

Blimey, Where's My Tea And Did I Pack My Passport? Can't Stop Now,
Goodbye for the moment. I am in my towel just out of the bath, got clean hair and rose scented cream on my face. My bag is packed and I am sad to say that I can't fit any sensible shoes in the suitcase, so, well, I will have to wear my high heeled boots all the time. For Art. I have put on some washing (why? I am going to Dublin. Why do the washing now?) and 13 Year Old Son has gone to school and forgot his books and his phone. I will take them in to his school in the few spare minutes that I had put aside to have breakfast and do a bit of This but what the hell. I don't need breakfast and this will be a lightening blog.
So, I will write more from Dublin. We set up tomorrow, and tomorrow the Opening Party starts the whole A Graceful Death exhibition. I am going to be interviewed by Alan Stanford on Saturday for a new radio station 4fm, so tune in this Saturday and hear how Ireland does AGD.
Better go now, got all my Scarpetta novels (got only 5 or so to go) and so I will be busy at the airport and on the train and probably at the exhibition. "What?" I will say, "I can't talk now I am reading Scarpetta novels and will have to leave you to walk around and look at the pictures and do you know, I have only 5 Scarpetta novels to go now?"
Bye, onwards and upwards. Maggie Hamblin is on Start the Week at the moment, she sounds absolutely wonderful. Wonder if she would like a cup of tea one day. Maybe I will stop off on the way to the airport and ask.
