Modern calligraphy

I can't believe that I have not posted since February! where does the time go? I have been busy with a few interesting creative projects and one in particular I want to share here.
Modern calligraphy, it is so popular in The States and the U.K. but I have heard nothing about it here in Ireland so I plan on changing that. In the autumn I will be running a series of half day workshops on Modern Calligraphy, I will post dates and venues here when the full list is complete, They will start mid September and mostly  in the West. Perhaps your Book, Golf, Knitting...Motor Bike? group would like a workshop, contact me and I can arrange it. I recently heard of a hen party doing a printing workshop so why not calligraphy? It is an ideal workshop for brides/grooms-to- be as they can address their invitation envelopes or write their place cards with beautiful script. No experience is required and I will supply all the equipment which you will bring home afterwards.

Spring Arrival.

We have had some beautiful bright sunny days in the past week and the garden is awakening after its winter sleep.

Rain, rain and then some more.

It has been raining....allot. There has been so much rain that many areas are suffering severe flooding and it is to continue for a few more days. What hardship for all those families that have had their homes destroyed especially coming up to Christmas. I know if my washing machine leaks the mess it can make so the clean up required after flood damage is mammoth and many affected, had only recovered/replaced or rebuilt after the 2009 floods. My heart goes out to all affected by this weather event.

The Chef's Table.

Yesterday I was in Delphi, There is a Lodge Hotel there as well as an Adventure Centre both are set in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the West. In the last few weeks a new restaurant has opened in the Adventure Center The Chef's Table and if you are any where close by and in need of a delightful dining experience then I highly recommend you eat there.

It is open for dinner from Wednesday to Sunday and it also serves Sunday lunch. Below are some mouth watering pics of what we enjoyed there yesterday for lunch. Apologies that I did not memories the exact names of the dishes. I don't usually photograph food but this looked as good as it tasted that I could not resist. We were a little surprised that we were the only diners there for lunch, but it is early days and I imagine when word gets out about its excellence it will be busier.

Last One!

It has been an age since I posted. I have had some health issues, A bolt out of the blue so to speak at the start of February and after months of tests, waiting for results, making decisions, I had major surgery early June and I am glad to report recovery is going well.  I'm happy to be have it all behind me and I am looking forward to a healthy future.
On the farm changes are being made. We are having a full dispersal sale of our Doon Charolais herd, it will be with some sadness that we will no longer have these beautiful animals on our farm and last week the last Charolais calf was born so I thought I would share that with you.
This photo was taken about an hour after birth.
