I was feeling a bit flat yesterday, overwhelmed with all the things I want to do and all the ideas whirling around, not knowing which path to follow first….so instead, I escaped for a couple of hours and indulged in a little bit of retail therapy of my favourite kind. It was a good move. I came home with a handful of postcards, letters and documents, the earliest dated 1813 – over 200 years old (which I admit spun me out a little!). Rich textures, glorious handwriting and the remnants of a red wax seal. Once I’ve deciphered and researched the letters I will post more. This is just a snippet to touch base.
