Sorting through and out….

As I mentioned in a previous post I will be moving again… yes, again, both house and website…. this is confusing! Let me deal with the website issues first; I’ve decided to keep this as my calligraphy site and the more personal stuff reverts back to where it used to be, i.e. Apologies for this, but it’s just not working with the calligraphy, not in my head in any case. I seem to be someone who can’t sit still for longer than five minutes… let’s face it, I moved house and home twice within the space of two weeks in 2012, but I don’t really like to dwell on that for too long.

General natter about calligraphy will stay right here. It isn’t going anywhere. But physically, yes it is! To a new home in North Devon. I will miss my studio here, I have been spoilt. From 2014 I will no longer be working from a proper separate studio, I will instead be working from a table in the dining room and I will no longer be able to say ‘In the studio today’, cos that would be fibbing. I am quite looking forward to writing ‘In the dining room today’, it will put a fresh spin on proceedings and the cake crumbs won’t look out of place.

Meanwhile, I have been trying to sort out my studio in preparation for the move…..

sorting stuff out….



Bits and pieces…

And I decided that I’d like to get this piece framed and maybe put it on the dining room wall.


…to be framed…

I hope all the moving palaver is clear? Obviously I am going to be fairly busy over the coming months, what with packing and Christmas and packing and unwrapping presents etc…

Oh…. one last piece of calligraphy…. this is for Wendy

black copperplate calligraphy

…love, laughter, peace…

    Dear Scarlet, I’m buying myself a British Rail Pass to follow you. I’ve taken the liberty of adding your old blog to my Reader. A cup of tea will be ready for you when you come back from your moving/Xmas ordeal. Good luck sweety and keep in touch. I’m already missing you.

      No worries Leni! I will probably still be in this house until after Christmas.. and then when I move I will probably lose broadband for 6 months, so until then I will make the most of my connection whilst I still have one.

      I know…. I am still traumatised from the 2012 experience, but this time I’m buying so there’s no going back. Let’s hope I’ve got it right this time.

      I will still be here until Christmas, Ms Hipster – I hope! Unless Mr Blue decides to self-move on Christmas Day, and I wouldn’t put that past him… he seems to like impossible missions.

      I do apologise, Mr Joey! Thankfully it will just be back to the old place and I will still be updating here. My New Year’s resolution will be to stay put.

      To be honest I reckon the dining room will be more productive than the studio, Dinah, due to there being a TV point…. bizarrely I work better with the telly on than the radio.

    I will follow [Miss Scarlet],
    follow [her] wherever [s]he may go.
    There isn´t an ocean too deep,
    A mountain so high, it can’t keep me away.

    *With apologies to Ms Lesley Gore.

    Rinn in die Kartoffel’, raus aus die Kartoffel … Over at the old/new place the blog-thingy in the right column still works.
    Is it possible that I spotted the delicate tips of your shoes in the first pic ?

      My old smelly Emu boots have come out of the closet for winter…. even the hole in the left one is visible in this pic…. we are so glamorous in Devon. I think I might need some instruction in how to crop photographs.

      The old avatar is out for Christmas… Clara is looking too gloomy and mean for celebrations. I think Clara scares people…. if I wanted to scare people I could simply use my own face.
      Plus, I am planning a little trip down memory lane on my old blog.

    Oh dear! My heart sinks when I have to fiddle with my blog roll.
    As it’s you I’ll try and sort it.
    They used to say you lost a drop of blood every time you sigh. Better stop before I lose an armful:)


Say hello and stuff.....
