DSCF6518 Word Press told me the other day that they were going to take the monies from my account for hosting this here blog and I thought I should get my monies worth by posting some random shit that I am thinking.  Hence me going blah blah blah about ‘not’ bookbinding. Fact of the matter is and strange as it may seem people actually read this stuff and on a regular basis. The bleating about not making books is really unpopular and no one wants to read but if I put ‘ decorative papers of J & J Jeffery of Edinburgh’ in the title then it’s going to get read. Maybe if I put in a made a pile of books for a craft shop and covered them in Jeffery paper and they still did not sell it would make me feel a lot better.

I could write a splendid blog about tradition English Allotment gardening,  It would be about winter gardening, hot beds, leek trenches, brassica cages, grafted plants, black tomatoes, sacred cauliflowers and cold frames in the winter and it would be really, really popular but it’s my own little daily practice and it really is of no consequence.

I write about not bookbinding and the hopeful return to making books because in a very real sense being and becoming a bookbinder is vital to my identity just as not practicing as a bookbinder is vital to me.

Meanwhile in the real world today I am going to plant out kale and leeks, I am going to do battle with vines and I am going to feed a couple of likely lads of cauliflower that just might be entered in to a beauty show in September.

At some point I am going to clear out one single drawer in my tool chest as a start perhaps the one with collection of broken and hard glue brushes.
