Fountain Pen, Happy Couple, Love and No 4

06 May

1   Half way through my printing of today’s Wedding Ceremony, the black ink ran out! Possible disaster but no! I found my beautiful fountain pen and in my best handwriting ( which I have been complimented upon in the past) I copied out the first three pages from the draft (the rest was printed). It took a while but it looks lovely and it was easy to read for the Ceremony this afternoon….

2   ……..and that was so beautiful! There was a very cold wind blowing through the arch I showed you on Friday but the couple were so happy and just grinned at each other the whole time! They’ve been together for 16 years and have two children and are still so much in love – now that really is beautiful to see!  Like our own wedding, almost 45 years ago, lots of things were homemade and quite delightful.

3   This Clematis was pointed out to me by Mr S this evening as I’ve been out most of the day. I just have to say here – I am so loved and very lucky to have this lovely man in my life.

The same clematis from underneath, quite gorgeous

and  I have to add No 4 tonight because as I was writing this my lovely friend John phoned me from the pub where a Cornish Shout is happening but I can’t be there as we’re away to London very early in the morning. Over the phone I have just listened to one of my favourites, ‘Estren’ and my eyes have been full of tears at the sound and at his kindness.

    All clematis are gorgeous, but that’s one of the more unique flowers I’ve seen.

      Sorry I missed this comment! We’ve had only four flowers this year (it was new last year) but we hope for more of these beautiful flowers next year. 🙂

      Thank you! I had forgotten how long it takes to write by hand! Just the one flower so far but we live in hope! 🙂

    I can’t believe you possess a fountain pen!! AND know how to use it! Oh, beautiful writing is absolutely to be valued. Mine is very scratchy. If I had done that, it would have looked like graffiti!

    Your friend ringing from the pub is wonderful. How precious, are good friends. 🙂

      You are so right about good friends – very special indeed! I’m discovering that virtual friends are pretty good too! 🙂

    What a way to improvise my friend – sounds like a dream writing with a fountain pen – id love to see your scripts 🙂
    And nothing beats a happy couple – when I see a couple walking holding hands I feel all gooey inside! Can’t wait to find my hand holder 😉

      Thank you for your lovely comments! It was lovely to use my fountain pen again. I’ll see if I can take a photo of some of the script.
      You are right about a happy couple and I’m sure you’ll find a lovely handholder one day. He’ll have to be very special to deserve you! 🙂
