A wee reminder everyone who signs up for my newsletter see sidebar gets an analogue email (old fashioned postcard)
I have some yellow and red tulips on my kichen counter. I had put them on the table but Miss Frida aka the fat black cat likes to perform feline floristry on them. Nibbling them so the heads fall off and I start to put the rescued flowers in expresso cups. So they have been put out of the way. Its dry but very very grey here in Edinburgh. A wee reminder if you sign up for my newsletter HERE. I will send you a piece of real mail in the post. Newsletter subscribers get discounts and info on upcoming events, exhibtions, and additions to the etsy shop.
I went to the Scottish Modern Art Gallery on wed to see the JD Fergusson exhibition (well actually I lie – I went to use up a fee scone voucher and saw the exhbition as an adjunct to that.) I was tickled pink to discover that JD was in fact a LEITHER!! And was brought up at 7 Crown St with his dad a victualler. I also like the fact that he high tailed it to France as soon as possible and the glorious light and colour of the South of France infused his pictures.
Am hightailing myself to Cambridge today however a wee reminder do sign up for my newsletter. All sign ups get a proper piece of analogue mail and discounts in my etsy shop.
So how to translate this into an action and habit?

Btw ‘old clothes and porridge’ is how my family describes that feeling of flatness when returning from a trip. Not sure how widespread a phrase it is.

There isn’t any snow here in Edinburgh at the moment but its gray gray and more gray. The light seemed to go at 3.30 on Thursday. I keep on making excuses to stay indoors. The hibernation continues. I do however leave occasionally to go to the post office! If you are fed up with junk mail, bills etc sign up for my newsletter here and I’ll send you a postie.
