Well I'm just an amateur trying to improve my art and have wonderful wacky conversations with people I meet here.

I am a retired roleplayer but still enjoying making characters and am always happy to help people come up with their own

I also take a lot of pictures, check them out some time :thumbsup:

I love seeing people's work but will only fav things which I think are something special, either incredible detail in a photograph, use of colour, skill or concept
I'm very picky so favs from me means your work has that little bit more!


I am happy to take requests or do Art Trades

Peace out.

Heavy title I know, and it's pretty much too late for us but I'm hoping that even if I can't perform a miracle, I can spread a message.

This November, my parent's second generation family business, a care home for the elderly, would have celebrated it's 25 year anniversary.

Except it won't. Because we are in the UK, where the Government is trying to encourage home care (people who are unable to look after themselves are left in their house alone all day with only a carer to visit for fifteen minutes in the morning and fifteen in the evening).

Where social services pay us jack shit for the people they bring to us so we can barely afford to give these people a decent quality of life.

Where there is so much red tape and training that the council seem to forget they're dealing with real people.

Because unless we, as a private care home, can get four new residents to join us by 4pm tomorrow (22/Aug/2014) we will have only a week of operation left before we have to close our doors forever and all those elderly ladies and gentlemen are left with no-where to go, suddenly up-ended and needing to find a new care home.

Here's where the title comes in. It's not closing down a business, it's not moving cattle to a new barn. It's breaking up a community. It's splitting friends and tearing people from their HOMES, because that's what our business is, it's Home to so many people. Who are cared for and cared about and enjoying life. All the staff, who know every resident by name, and all their quirks and sense of humour and how they like their eggs in the morning.

Can we please start addressing this?? Because it's not just my family's business, and it's too late for us, but other care homes are struggling too. Too many forget that the people who we care for here are grandparents, parents, adventurers, doctors, soldiers; people with pasts, stories, feelings, people with RIGHTS.

I don't know what more I can say, but it means so much to me, I am 19, I grew up in the flat above the home. Many of these people have watched me grow up. I had twenty grandmas. There's been so much laughter, so much fun and love and family in this home. I don't want to see it turned into another block of flats. I'm even buying lottery tickets tomorrow in the hopes we win enough to keep us going until we find more people.

And I know how much it means to my Mum and Dad. They nurtured this place from the very start. My Mum especially, I saw the pain in her eyes when she told me today, watched her try not to cry. She has put her life and soul in here and it shows, you feel it when you walk through that front door, the homely, warm atmosphere, it's a family. It's our family. My Dad has done everything he can to keep this place going, it's affected his mental wellbeing trying to keep on top of all the policies, legislation, low payments from Social Services.

SO COME ON PEOPLE!!

Stop concentrating on Kim Kardashian's latest faux pa, get the media cameras off Pippa Middleton's arse, who gives a damn where David Cameron went for his holidays. Let's talk about the real issue, let's talk about the extinction of these care homes that leave people stranded. #LetsTalkElderly

And for those wondering, here is our page filled with pictures of our residents enjoying themselves, because we cared enough to try.
