A silly poem for Valentine’s Day

Can you guess who it’s about before the end? (This was just a little homework exercise with Writers’ group.)

Foolish people think you’re haughty,
Reserved, distant and aloof.
But I know different; it’s just shyness;
I even have written-down proof.
You’re a fine tall person with handsome features.
I’ve imagined them while I read.
“A generous, gentleman-like manner;
An upright nature and well bred.”
Your ten-thousand a year could be quite handy
and I’ve heard Derbyshire’s a nice place.
We’d walk in the park and stop by a fountain
for a passionate embrace.
Oh my love, my one true love
(apart from my husband of course)
if you were real and here today
I’d even consider divorce.
Your smouldering eyes and tousled black hair –
I feel emotion from within.
Ok, I’m thinking of Colin Firth,
A wet, white shirt clinging to your skin.
Either way, I’d declare my ardent love,
As a couple we’d be so classy.
And Pemberley would be such a lovely home
for me and Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy.

My Cornwall photo on canvas! Printed by Printerpix
October 6, 2016
Chris and I are very fussy about art for our walls, and we don’t always have the same taste. We compromise by never ending up getting anything! However, when the opportunity came up to have one of my photographs blown up and printed onto canvas, I was really excited by it. I have a massive 60% discount code at Printerpix for you at the end of this post. I chose a picture I took during our recent campervan trip to Cornwall. The old disused mine is easy to find on the North coast road near Morvah. It’s a popular spot for rock-climbers and hundreds passed us on the footpath towards the cliffs, lugging their gear with them. It was fairly early in the morning when we went photo-spotting, and I turned away from the sea and looked back at this ruined mine building….
How to make simple steampunk armwarmers
April 20, 2016
Steampunk costume A little while ago I made several steampunk outfits, which Rain kindly modelled for me at the village Tithe barn. They have all been sold now, but the armwarmers I made to go with them have remained popular. You only really need basic sewing skills for these if you fancy having a go. I used lovely stretch cotton velvet and antique Victorian lace for mine, but you can use any fabric with a small amount of stretch, and decorate the ends with any trim you have to hand….
