I had better start this posting by stating that it has not been posted by 'real' self but by my ethereal self! I am busy trying to get on with some work so I have left this to the work of the 'Blogger Scheduler'....we shall see if it works or not (mind you how will I know as I am in the Third Dimension (or is it the Fourth...I haven't watched Dr Who since Patrick Troughton left...what do you mean who is he!!!))! Sorry if this seems like an android but it appears to be quite a good way of blogging if you need to ask for leave of absence - I could stock pile a whole years worth of posts and then schedule them all at weekly intervals!
In my absence could I also please request that my photos are not used elsewhere...thank you for respecting that wish....by all means use ideas and then take own photographs and use merrily
Well it got here eventually - this letter was a little late but it is the thought that counts. How marvellous that the address has not changed over the years and this could fight its way through all the other letters to find its way home...ho ho.
Just experimenting really and seeing what can be done...
Used some fabric leftover from primary school summer dresses for lining.
Roll out the barra....
"Cor blimey gov'ner" (said in a Dick Van Dyke/Bert sort of way...).
I printed this on double damask again but next time I would use something plain I think
Cakeshire is quite a nice county to live in....never ending supplies of cake.....
Toodle pip from a wet and windy Custard Towers....mind you by the time this is posted the sun might be shining!
PS: Many years ago when Dom and I were backpacking our way around the globe I would write letters home to friends - once I merrily addressed a letter to Blighty (I must have been particularly homesick after a year I think) it trotted off around the world travelling to several countries with similar sounding names (Belize being one that I recall) but it finally made it home when someone had written 'Try the United Kingdom!' on it.
