The Diamond Jubilee jug

Good morning and a happy Monday to you all. It's a bright and sunny one here again today - the past few days have been scorching. Yesterday we took a family outing to Bath. Luke achieved the merit that he required to win his place at Bath Spa University, where he's going to study painting, so we took the trip out so that he could check out the city centre - it's a beautiful and vibrant place. I'm very pleased for him. Today is Joe's seventeenth birthday, so we're all going out tonight for curry to celebrate. Here are a couple of photographs of the Diamond Jubilee jug which my friend Jonny took for me last week. I seem to be having some difficulty uploading them, I think because they're large files, but you can see more of them here.

It came out so nicely, better than we could have hoped for. I don't know where it will end up, in private hands or a museum - at the moment, I'm enjoying it at home. He's such an amazing illustrator is my chum Frank. Well I must get to work. Have a good start to the week everybody, bye for now.

I'm so glad it came out perfect. What a piece of art! I've been following it as you all produced it. I'm thinking museum, so others can continue to enjoy it.

A great jug, Doug. Good on both of you. And Dee's parents, both Anglophiles in their late 80s, were delighted to see the jug on my iPhone the other day.

Thank you all, it did come out really beautifully. We're working on another project together at the moment - I think this will be something ongoing. Give my love to Dee Hollis

Don't take less than 2 or 3 million pounds for it...
