There are one or two nice postboxes in Malvern and this is one of them and it appears to be from the Victorian era. It is outside Malvern Community Hospital, which is somewhere I have been rather a lot over the past week or so!! The lovely neighbour I take shopping each week tripped and fell and has ended up in hospital until she gets back on her feet so I have been visiting her as often as I can as she has only a few friends and relatives around to do so. It means I am not getting much done at home which is disappointing.
The other frustrating thing this past week is, that for some unknown reason, the computer has been playing up and some of the Adobe Creative Suite software has stopped working, mainly Photoshop and Illustrator. I am going to have to take the hard drive to a man to fix it as it is beyond me. I think it is probably one of the updates from Microsoft that has caused the glitch.
Met a friend from 'Up North' in Birmingham today and we had a jolly time. She showed me the 'Custard Factory' and we went around the 'Rag Market', followed by a quick shop in the new John Lewis which was fabulous. I came back with a new King Size Quilt and a couple of towels, plus some bits of fabric and some leather cords which I will use in bookbinding when I get round to it.

Our front lawn is covered in strange fungi. We usually get lots over in the Dell on the other side of the stream as there is lots of dead wood and tree stumps, but these are something new.

Whilst I did not get to do the work I had planned whilst at Rydal Hall I did start a small concertina book about my visit. This is 'Work in Progress' I am afraid and I have lots of ideas of further pieces to include in the blank spaces.
