A Busy Wednesday

Wednesday proved to be a busy day for Ted Coney's Family Portraits. Early morning saw me and the Morris Minor perched in the centre of the Maltings roundabout having our photo taken by the Cambridge News photographer to promote my bid to make money for Teenage Cancer Trust as well as promote the gallery in a roundabout(no pun intended) way. I am working on the idea that locals are so used to seeing my face, that they will soon know who I am (well, I was in the paper last week promoting the Arts Award and my name didn't even appear!)
Later in the day I had 8 ladies from the Mepal Friendship group who had booked to do one of my tours. I was mindful they had already seen my lecture 'On The Edge' and this had encouraged them to book. However, I needed to show them new work while pointing out the origionals, which they had previously seen as slides. I was told that two of the group wouldn't be able to climb the stairs but would be content to sit downstairs while the others went up. In the event, they insisted on coming up even though it was like leading a mountaineering climb. With our stairs being very steep and one lady on two sticks, it was not easy, but I hope they thought it was worth it.
