Something beginning with "O". Yes, it's the 'orrible eye test at Spec Savers but it wasnt too bad. My eyes hadn't deteriorated atall so no need for new glasses (Sorry Hazel- she hates the glasses I have and thinks they make me look a spectacle of myself!) So £18 out of pocket I went to the bank and then to the post office to post Vittore's packet. Not many bargains to be had in the charity shops but did find a 2005 desk diary in the new bookshop for a £1. Bought some rabbit pellets and walked home in the drizzle. Life just does'nt get better than this!
No friendly mail today or mail of any kind. Not sure what's happening to it all. Our postman is not prone to throwing it over a nearby hedge as some are likely to do.Usually something interesting here.
A kind of diary, a log, a ramble, nothing to do with the Flowerpot Men. My life as an artist, a collagist, a rubber stamper, a networker, a dad , a letter writer and a postcard maker. Observations about this and that in no particular order.
I grew up in the home counties around London during the 50's and 60's. Went to several art schools including Southend ,Chelsea and Manchester. Trained as a painter and printmaker but now mostly using collage. Collect novelty songs and old mail art amongst other things too numerous to mention.
