Thankyou so much for your lovely encouraging comments on my handwritten project. It seems the idea of returning to fountain pens, ink and typewriters appeals to many and there are several projects across the internet attempting to revive the joy of writing by hand.
I have received some truly lovely emails and even some handwritten letters (looking at you dear Moogsmum) this week in response. Sorry if I haven't got back to you yet - there are quite a few to get through. I'll be exchanging old fashioned correspondence with several longstanding and some new online friends. There's a list of just a few of them below.
I plan to illustrate my letters as the temptation to draw with my Lamy (safari for those interested) is too strong. Here's a sketch I'll be sending to Ben at Higgledy Garden.
Meanwhile it's been quite a week for my shed and I:
Here is the episode of Love Your Garden featuring my shed on ITVPlayer.
Fancy reading story of my shed over on Standard Issue magazine? Pop over here for a read.
