Happy New Year to you all. I do hope eveyones holiday was just as they wanted it to be. We had a lovely time, visiting people and some times being at home spralled in front of the telly, stuffed with chocolates. Did anyone else see the latest adaptation of ‘Wind in the Willows’ on New Years Day, the one with Matt Lucas. I thought it was wonderful and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I want to show you one of my pressis, this is from my brother and sister in law, when I unwrapped it, I was speechless and the tears welled up, I love it so much.
Apologies for the rubbish photo, but it was really difficult to get a picture without loads of reflections on the glass.
The drawing, of the artists daughter, is called ‘Marjorie Sulking’ and is by Mabel Alington Royds. It was drawn in the 1930’s. My brother found it on ebay and had it framed for me. I think it is one of the lovliest presents I have ever been given.
It also reminds me of this little person…
