A look back to my holiday which was only 3 weeks ago ! The National Gallery in Budapest . I’ve been stricken with a bad back ... muscles all in spasm and total agony ... I’m getting there but it’s slow progress !
Here’s a snap of the one of the beautiful peacocks who were at the Brocante at the weekend ! They enjoyed all the hustle and bustle and generally showing off ! #peacock
Well we had a lovely day at The Brocante ! Here’s a picture of my pitch . Lampshades and garden bits and bobs and wicker baskets were main sellers today as well as quilts ! I bought some lovely herb plants and a pink glass jug and some paint ! The sun was out all day and it was glorious weather. We get to do it all again tomorrow! 10 until 4 ! #cottagestyle #brocante #britishsummer
Stocks ! One of my favourite blooms ! #freshflowers

This has been my evening view from the balcony of our room for a week now . We’ve visited galleries ,castles , parliament building , churches ,ruin bars and food markets . Eaten lunch at The Four Seasons and The Ritz and had good Hungarian food from independent eateries . We’ve used cabs , trams and buses . The weather has been 35 to 37 degrees .. We fly back to Uk this evening . Budapest you were perfect! #chainbridge #endofholiday
So Sunday Culture Vultures. We are here to see the Michelangelo exhibition and also to see Renoirs Reclining Nude . It’s raining and it’s hot 36 degrees so inside is the best place .
One of my views this morning from a very hot and sunny Budapest . We are going to the castle area this morning and have a tour booked of the Parliament building this evening , culture vulture holibobs ! I’m not too good with this heat ( never affected me before ) but I’m at that funny age of hot flushes and this temperature isn’t helping ! #budapestworldheritagesite #hotelclark
Plastics ..... I’ve borrowed this image from @thetigerlillies . My favourite painting of all time , I saw it when I was about 10 and have never stopped loving the image . This is a grotesque altered image and hard hitting to me . I just wanted to share it with you #millais #plastic #ophelia
