Congratulations Mark, richly deserved and I suspect more awards will follow.

Up here I suspect there may be a few people who didn't vote for BREXIT who have similar fantasies.

As I type our new PM is on board a large RAF aircraft which has just crossed into Mongolian airspace en-route to China. Maybe she's on a "mission" too.

Regards.

Re: Art Show Win

Peter, Mark, Margaret - thank your for your comments, appreciated.

I dropped by the show early this morning, it's amazing how much better the artworks looked in daylight.
I was able to take a good look at all the exhibits which I thought were of a very high standard.

I was very happy to have been awarded a "Highly Commended" award.
The winning entry was executed in pastel and indeed is a magnificent work that deserved to take out the First Prize.
