I had a few coffee and craft sessions as well as spending the day at the craft fair at the King's Hall with friends. It was very different to Dublin which was good and which also meant there were things I just had to buy. We had a beautiful lunch at the King's Head as always.

I hadn't been to Clare Glen for many years but yesterday it was just perfect foran Autumn walk and Smudge loved it. The river level was high and the leaves were layered.

Today we took a Woodland Walk in Mountstewart. It was cold but no rain and we were well wrapped up. The colours were beautiful and there were so few people around.
Back to my art class this week with Julie D with my first experience of oil paints. My first impression was that I wouldn't need to be worried about the cost of the paints as no way was i going to be dabbling again. However my mind was changing by the next day. I nipped into the town hall and saw an exhibition by Ards Art Club and the two paintings I loved best were in oil and they were amazing so realistic. ...so who knows maybe when I have absolutely nothing else to spend my money on I will get some oils!!!
I am looking forward to joining the class at the Ulster Museum this week and I intend to spend the whole day there, after all I will still be on holiday
