Beatles Sketches From My Scrapbook and my Beatles Poster

Sketches from my Beatles Scrapbook

I wasfifteen when I drew these from photos

George Harrison


I was a Sixties Beatles Fan

Found this while otrying to find papers to put through my new all-,singing all-dancing birthday paper shredder.

It is so tattered and is in bits but has all the lyrics to the songs on the album on the back of the poster so quite a collector’s item.

I also still keep my Beatles scrapbook which I did as a 15- year old school girl. I used to buy a fan magazine and in it are these sketches on from the photos found there Of course the signatures are not real I faked them at the time,⁰ naughty me

  • Letter to The Queen
    BEING EDITED There is is a historical story on my website explaining why I took it upon myself to contact the Queen a couple of years ago. It is about how ‘The Queen’s (unnofficial)Olive Grove’ began (ith one tree. Apparently my informal letter to Her Majesty pleased her, because she replied! Only last month I sent The Queen an update with photos to hopefully give her some more good news but the timing was bad. Jubilee… Continue reading Letter to The Queen

  • F@acebook At Its Best…sharing the love
    This Prince was always getting into trouble too, but his name isnt Harry or Andrew, just Prince. No not Prince the would-be- nameless singer. This Prince was by nature an entertainer. “The runt of the litter”, as Kerry referred to him on fb today, he came along as a puppy many years ago, and being the character he was, and thanks to the generosity of Gillian and John, he brought many moments of joy to all… Continue reading F@acebook At Its Best…sharing the love
  • My Other Life/Blog
    My other main blog at the moment began as funny things relating yo beingan Oldie living in a retirement village with the Welsh-sounding name of Gdsunwatingrm, so as not to upset anybody. Since there is precious little going on in the world that is fun at the moment, I try to keep ‘Life With the Cardigans as light or interesting as possible, and as my health continues to deteriorate and my mobility is getting more difficult,… Continue reading My Other Life/Blog
  • Anzac  Memorial Swansea New South Wales Australia
    It looks a rather clunky bit of metal on an everyday basis but every year on 25th April at the Dawn ANZAC Day memoial service,  weather permitting, something magic happens. As the sun rises the rays come through the metal open Centre of the ANZAC Monument, Swansea, New South Wales and it all comes to life.  This photograph was taken this time by my friend Darlene Bird, (who is an ‘early bird’ obviously!) WE  WILL  REMEMBER… Continue reading Anzac  Memorial Swansea New South Wales Australia

  • Doant Stress, Pura Vida and She’ll Be Right!
    Every country has its own way of saying “do not worry”. This train of thought came about after reading about the Costa Rican saying of “Pura Vida” on Eunice’s Diary, which came about when Eunice became a follower of my blog today. (Hello Eunice from Eunice) It seems we could have a similar frame of mind which should be interesting to see. Strangely enough I had a diary called: https://myparkinsonsdiary.wordpress.com till last year when I continued… Continue reading Doant Stress, Pura Vida and She’ll Be Right!
  • Sorting Out Our Politicians!
    It’s Child’s Play or so it seems: like a bunch of kids yelling across the room at each other, forgetting our lives are at stake while they try to score points off each other.

  • Late Blooming Love
    LATE BLOOMING LOVEEunice Ç English ‘ An ageing romance writer without a romance to write is a sad case. Something should be done Carole D’Arcy These thoughts sifted through Carole’s mind as her chin rested on her hand, her elbow rested on the long wooden table made up of several conjoined pine-topped student desks, and her body slumped tiredly. Jet-lag is a terrible thing, and despite her best efforts, Carole had arrived ten days ago, ready… Continue reading Late Blooming Love

  • People Are Discovering Picnics
    We had lotsof picnics when I was growing up. Usually sandwiches, an apple or banana, and a thermos of tea, carried in a basket to the seaside in Ayr, Scotland, or to a local park. The advent of McDonald’s in Australia took the place of traditional picnics in our family, and my son surprised me yesterday by saying they as a young family did not picnic, they ate out in cafes and restaurants. Understandable, considering the… Continue reading People Are Discovering Picnics

    The 1960’s hit pop sòng ‘Çome outside ‘ by Mike Sarne was a true indicator dance Hall culture on my area and era, the 1960’s!.

    Art is in the eye of the beholder Sitting in my recliner looking up at my pastel sketch of a friend’s daughter on the weekend of the Dobell festival, and seeing a hint of that elongated style of his that, to me, is what makes William Dobell’s work memorable. In truth this was done from a photo that my friend said was not really like his beloved child, who I have actually never met, and at… Continue reading Dobell Inspired
  • Culzean Castle Revisited
    Scotland is full of castles. These days they are pretty well- maintained and no longer old ruins. This is the castle of my childhood, where our church would hold its annual Sunday School Picnic, or we would go with visitors. It appears to be a busy and interesting place these days. Please view the short video from the link.

    Can take some work, plus a handful of B, D and magnesium tablets. It doesn’t take much to make me happy these days. An outing with my son and fresh home-brewed coffee in my thermos, carried in a hand-woven basket given to me for my birthday by Fabiola, my Fabulous Physio*. Add home-made sultana scones, a couple of squares of chocolate and a water view, and I am content. Life isn’t always this way, so I… Continue reading Being Happy –

    SEEING THE LIGHTEunice C English The clever lighting of the Harley Gallery glowed softly as Carole bent closer to a huge ceramic pinecone. Not something she would want in her living room, but on closer inspection she was impressed by the amount of work that had gone into recreating something that was lying in its thousands only feet outside the door on the estate. She knew this was what the artist intended, for she had studied… Continue reading My Romantic Short Story

  • The Disappearing Pallets –
    Something that has gone relatively unnoticed, at least over a large part of my area, is the sudden  appearance of empty spaces outside factories, building sites and stores, where piles of wooden transport frames, known as pallets, had been stacked for delivery to landfill at the tip. Those stacks have suddenly dwindled. When along came the Covid 19 Pandemic, with everyone in lockdown with little to do and nowhere to go, suddenly the piles of pallets… Continue reading The Disappearing Pallets –

    Memoir circa 1965  Wow! Love the number  plate for Eunice Carol! What a great little car! Reminds me of the tiny Fiat that 5 of us used to travel in- like sardines from Worksop to Retford when I was a TO in the Tax Office around 1965-67.

  • Haven’t Souffled For a While!
    I’ve taken to Googling recipes, now that I can no longer read the print in recipe books. I took a bit of a chance with this, making it with all lactose-free ingredients, but it was nicely firm on the crust but moist (not wet) inside and the flavour: lactose free ready-grated three cheese mix from Aldi, plus a sprinkle of grated parmesan, with some Dijon Mustard was tantalising. Not bland at all. Left out the paprika.… Continue reading Haven’t Souffled For a While!

    I have never been to Venice. My sister has. She didn’t seem to find it romantic, but she is more sensible than I. This painting, was done in Singleton.Aus when I was a young Mum with two young young boys, around 1982. The scene was taken from a wonderfully evocative photograph in a Badidas bathtime products advertisement. Catchphrase: Anything can happen after a Badidas Bath. Hence the title.
