Only 3 sleeps till I am due to go away … so of course my art kit is already sorted and packed. (what am I missing?)
As to where I am booked to go?… the big clue is in this drawing (a stick that I was given in BCN by ‘KK’). I am going to a church conference which happens to be in ….
Penang! I have planned to go early for a little sketching. It was wonderful to meet KK (Ch’ng Kiah Kiean) in BCN and really looking forward to another chance to see him in action again…. but also looking forward to meet the other amazing Penang Urban Sketchers.
A pop into Singapore is also planned on the way home.
A sketch that I did yesterday of St Thomas church North Sydney – more about it here
And today I was at Hornsby so I popped into T2 for a quick cuppa…this photo was taking while I was waiting for the paint to dry (something I often do NOT do…)
Six months since I last had a T2 morning tea… and whilst it was nice, I think that I have moved on.
The Macquarie centre tea house was very special to me – it was contained in a great space, many of the seating areas had there own unique character (Hornsby is more open and less ‘magic’), it was nearby so I could easily pop in (wasn’t a special occasion to visit) and most importantly I knew all the staff and they were so amazing and kind to me. The staff in Hornsby are lovely too but I haven’t made a connection there yet.
It made me realise that if you frequent a cafe/tearoom, it is ultimately the people that work there that makes it special not the food or drink. I think it is the cheery staff of T2 Macquarie that I miss the most…so if any of them see this- hope you are going well!
