Well today’s title refers to my football team who almost certainly achieved safety today with nine games to go! Brilliant achievement! COYH!!!!

It has been an action packed couple of days. Yesterday I made the mistake of going for a long cycle ride thinking the weather was going to be OK. So I went on my super duper carbon bike without mudguards, Big Mistake!!!! I got a real soaking and myself and the bike got absolutely filthy. Normally I enjoy the route I chose over the tops via Bisley for the views, grey unrelenting mizzle was all I got!

Have managed to fit in much today.  Preparation for decorating a walk around the lake as well as watching the Mighty Hatters. Spring is definitely in the air, hawthorn out, buds and blossom on trees and we heard Chiffchaffs and the explosive burst of a Cetti’s Warbler.  All good for the soul!

As I am decorating thought today’s quiz could be on Paintings!

a) Who painted the Sistine Chapel ceiling?  b) Which impressionist artist painted the Poppy Field?  c) What is the meaning of the art term impasto?  d) Which former England cricketer owned an art gallery in Chipping Sodbury and is a well known artist? e) French artist Edgar Degas is famous for painting which particular subject?
