Today the Stanley International Dragon Boat Championships are being held. Stanley is a very beautiful bay in Hong Kong. We visit there often as Hannah ( the coffee addict) was born near there and both her parents ashes have been scattered on a hilltop overlooking the harbour. We have family members who paddle in the Stormy Dragons team so we have a partisan interest in the results.

We wanted to preserve the memory of the old undertakers building that we redeveloped last year. As luck would have it London Signs had their workshop not far from our flat in Gipsy Hill. We commissioned this neon sign from them . Visiting the workshop was a great experience as many of the signs they make are iconic all over Britain. It’s lovely to see craftsman created signs that are not digitally designed.
Last night I set Letterpress for a poster, I’ve had such a great time at the Letterpress Short Course at PCAD. I went hoping to learn a technique to add text into my abstract painting but I’ve learnt to love text printing in its own right.
Our Real Interior Design page is just being constructed, this old picture frame gets a mention early on.
Gorgeous candles from Rome, look amazing against centuries old Cornish slate flooring.

Baker and GrazeWhilst working away from home, I’m always desperate to find the best coffee. At the moment, I’m based at Cheltenham General Hospital and having tried all the coffee shops within the hospital, I can confirm its all terrible. The stuff ‘palpitations’ are made with.
So whilst only given 30 minutes for lunch, I decided to check out Baker and Graze. It had the look outside of somewhere that cared about coffee and good food. They serve food, many types of chocolate brownies, also freshly baked bread. The brunch type servings looked delicious.
The ‘flat white’ was superb and gave me the hit required with no ill effects. Needless to say whilst working away, this will be my cafe of choice.
A trip to Jacka today and this was one of the cakes of the day. I bought it for the coffee addict who is once again checking out the coffee shops of Cheltenham. Check out the following link for the original Jacka story. What a difference the sun makes.
