Together

Together - 1982

Together – 1982

This week has been a nightmare of art-related worry and stress.  It has been such a week that I never even thought about writing a post until this minute.   Matthew was away on business all week (until Friday) which made matters worse.

The problems are not solved but just having Matt here as a support makes all the difference in the world.  This evening I am thinking how fortunate I am to have this great person around for my whole life (since 1980).

Sometimes it takes problems to make one appreciate what and who are important in life. Thanks to my family, friends and especially Matthew, equilibrium and optimism have returned.

Together - 2010

Together – 2010

Note: I would like to put in a ‘Together – 2014’ photo but we don’t get many photos taken of us so 2010 will have to suffice.   Both of these were taken in Christchurch, New Zealand.

  1. Hey lassie, What has been up? How could you be worrying about anything with all that amazing work under your belt? Love love and good thoughts. Go see the hundred foot journey, pretty pretty, quite forgettable in some ways, nice nice, beautiful place to visit in France and quite therapeutic ! We went last night but if you want to do a girlies I am up for it! Love Anne

  2. Sounds like a tough week – having a sympathetic ear, even if they can’t solve the problems does help, so its good you have Matt home again. Do hope everything works out! Thinking of you x.

    Hi Julie. I cant agree with you enough. To have somebody with you to share the load when life is a tricky is so comforting. I have been with Ian since 1981 and he is my rock. Yes, I am the one that goes up and down like a yoyo. I love the photo of both of you. You can feel the love… Looking forward to your art exhibition. Kind regards Amanda Simes

    Great photos, lovely words and perfect couple! You’ll have to send thank you presents to your Peverel St flatmates for propelling you into each others arms (along with the odd mouse)!!!
