Love letters

Good morning! *Yawn* Kettle’s on, cafetiere is stocked and ready, sun is shining…. Saturday morning is my favourite time of the week, the perfect time to think about the weekend ahead and relish the chance to read, write, be creative…

Last weekend I spent a lot of time working in preparation of the Capture the Scene writing workshop, which took place in Arnos Vale Cem on Sunday. While I was busy there, my husband and some friends headed off to a local flea market seeking treasures.

Letter JThis is what my man came back with for me. It’s a letter ‘J’ from an early 19th century printing press. Imagine all the words that little wooden block has been part of! Well, fewer than you might think, actually, actually, as the letter ‘J’ is definitely among the most underused of the letters – in fact, these are the only two in this entire 751 character post!


I think it’s a wonderful, thoughtful gift – a solid piece of literary history.
