This week my mother-in-law returned from a month in Uruguay and goodness was I happy to see her!* Today she took Oscar and Nora to her place, so I organised to head to Tess' house. My other sis Aym and her new baby Tillie joined us, we ate a delicious lunch (thanks Tess), settled the babes, boiled the kettle and attempted to become calligraphers.**
I was a little impatient. My page of practice strokes (the messy one with the blotches) completely shows that. I've learnt that it is an artform that must be done slowly and with care.
*Although we have had a good month – Mabelle's absence meant that I simply spent an awful lot more time with my long suffering mum and sisters.
**Tess owns this beautiful book.
