dawn 31st Jan 07I took this photo when I got up this morning. One benefit of being an early riser is that I get to see sights like this......this will be going on my OUR SKY blog at some point...when I catch up with it...still on September 2006 at the moment!
Mick did really well again with his dinner last night and his bowel movements are fairly regular at the moment. I was pleased to see that sitting in his wheelchair on our trip out yesterday hasn't has any detrimental effect on his bum. It's been a beautiful sunny morning though very chilly; I decided to sit Mick out in his armchair as the sun was shining in on that part of the room. My sunshine boyI'm so glad I bought this chair; it was worth every penny......some things are worth so much more than monetary value.
I can't believe it's February tomorrow; Valentine's Day soon.......I've ordered Mick some more t-shirts as a present. They were in the Sale on one of the on-line catalogues. As I have to cut them down the sleeve and underarm so that I can get them on him it's good if I can find a bargain. One of them is a really bright ORANGE........guess that's why it was on won't matter too much though when we are sitting in the garden in the summer (fingers crossed) and when I think about's the same colour as one of our lily varieties so Mick won't mind too much!!!!

God that chair looks comfortable!
The mission i was talking about was trying to find out more info about the painting you mentioned!
I have spent hours and hours looking but not come up with much!
You need the full address to look up previous owners on the land registry office.
Then went on the National Archives website, from there got to Suffolk Record Office, this looks good to find out info, if you have time to go down yourself? or pay a fee for them to find out some info?
Suffolk Record Office
Also thought if you could plan a trip to bures for fact finding mission? or search for bloggers from Bures and put them on the trail?
Also how about getting local papers involved?
Sorry i couldn't be more help!

Ruth, I found your blog via Talj's PAD blog. The "Portrait of a Friend" words meant a lot to me today.

I hope Mick enjoyed the sunshine in his comfy chair.

There's nothing nicer than a snooze in a comfy chair, all the better if it's in the sun. I'm sure Mick enjoyed it.
You are a very special couple, and an example to us all. I don't want that to sound condescending, I just don't know how else to say I admire your strength. I'll go now before my foot gets permanently wedged in my mouth..xx
