Gong Hei Fat Choy Karen & Merci Beaucoup Karen.

Saturday was the Chinese New Year and our much loved fan Karen took us completely by surprise by sending us a very beautiful New Year card, a timely reminder, because, to be honest, it had almost passed us by, especially as we no longer have a Chinese Takeaway across the road like we had back in The Homeland.
Chinese New YearHowever, taking into consideration Darrell’s new eating regime it probably isn’t a bad thing, though we still pine occasionally for a No. 34, 46, 57 and a portion of chips.
Fountain penKaren said some very lovely things to us to start the said Chinese New Year off with and Darrell, in particular, was impressed that Karen had written with a real ink pen, immediately deciding that he would use one too as his Chinese New Years Resolution. We have a couple somewhere, still packed away and he is now determined to find them  and start writing with “style” …… he is also musing what colour ink would best express his personality!  What is he like?
Gong Hei Fat Choy Karen and mahooooooosive THANK YOU for your very kind thoughts.

Well done Karen!
The numbers from the Chinese takeaway sound appetising.

I'm thinking a dark green ink or bright blue would be colours that Darrell might choose, then again he might be a fan of bright purple!!!

Real mail with a message in proper ink is very special and a lovely gift from Karen! If I remember correctly, this Chinese New Year is the year of the chicken. Darrell is certainly being a martyr to his diet commitment while visions of tempting numbers come into mind! temptations pop up everywhere.....Happy Chinese new year, Dianne

I used to dabble in a bit of calligraphy myself - often think of picking up the pen, ink and parchment again.....JantheFan x

Awww bless you boys - glad that the card made it safely to you xx

I am sure Darrell will enjoy using a real ink pen - I went to quite an old fashioned grammar school and we weren't allowed to use biros, I must admit I do cheat now and use ink cartridges but at school we were only allowed to use ink from a bottle.
