Well, it has been a long time. My Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest seem the easiest way to share photos and I haven't felt inspired to write blog posts. I'm missing the blog though, so will trial a return to it. Alongside this one, which I will keep quite personal, I'm developing another, for a big project I'm developing. More on that soon. For now though, back to doblemdesign blogging...
The latest Balch boy-venture was a ski-venture in Switzerland. Ollie took Seth and Bo off to London for a night with Macu (Seth's godmother) and Jamie before flying to Zurich and then by train (with a playground carriage) to Bern. They were guests of our ex-neighbours in Buenos Aires, Emma and Per from Sweden, whose son Julius was born a couple of months after Seth. We've stayed in touch and visited them two years ago on our inter-railing trip around Europe. Julius is not even five but already a pro on the slopes. The three imps hit it off and by the sounds of it caused a lot of noise and chaos in what I imagine is their usually calm and quiet flat!
I'm running out of wall space at Pottery Cottage, not least because there are 22 windows, but maybe I can find a place for these pigeon holes? They're more sturdy than most wirework shelves I have seen, and I can think of many things (stationary, shoes, toys, books, ceramics, plants) they could be used to hold. What do you think, should I buy them?
Familiar handwriting on 14th Feburary...same admirer has sent cards to my sister and I for 30+ years. I think the idea is he never wanted a year to go by when his girls didn't receive a card on Valentine's Day, so he sends one each year just to be sure. I've kept most of them.
