Mr Jinx.

I have been jinxed since we got back from Italy, first we had some visitors and then I got the flu, so I have only got started on some new work this week. I had started a big drawing before the Open Days and Christmas, but I couldn’t face it. So I started two small, almost square drypoint prints….fingers crossed they work out.

Ca(t)shmere Kitten

We had a dinner party over the weekend and the following day one of our guests texted to say she had left behind a CASHMERE CARDIGAN….!!! Well I can honestly say that those two words chilled me to the core and sent me into a blind panic the likes of which I haven’t experienced since the great art heist before Christmas...





I put my winter woolies away in an under bed drawer as soon as May begins in the hope that this will encourage the weather to improve. For years this has worked perfectly well, with the woolies reappearing in late October.



Cute picture of a cat?

Wait 'til I tell you why she has my best cashmere jumper...



Conjoined prophets and politicians?

On Wednesday last week, we went to Siena. It really is a beautiful city, and much easier to get around than Florence. We had hoped to have lunch at a favourite spot, La vecchia Taverna di Bacco, but it was closed for the ferie/holidays, and Marcus was lucky to get a booking instead for Le Logge, just off Il Campo. The city was very quiet, as most of the students are still on holiday, AND there were only a few other tourists wandering about….bellissimo!
