New Week’s Resolution . . . . .

January is never a great month is it? So I decided to try a New Week’s resolution– I reckon that might get done – – no point in being too ambitious. . .

See? I’ve made it public – my level of commitment is there for all to see . .  or not.

So far today I’ve done OK

1. Only a quartino of wine with dinner at 8.30- late start small quantity . . .  . . and anyway in certain parts of Italy it’s illegal to not drink with a meal….. no.. I just made that up . .

2. Well not in bed yet but it’s only 10.15

3. See above

4. Did something: went to the dentist, took Archie to the vet and also spent about 4 hours cleaning the studio.

5. Managed a swift lap of the village – only twenty minutes but flat out and it’s bloody freezing.

Good start:

PS this regime is based on a five day week – the weekend arrives and all bets are off, and if I’m out for lunch that’s different, too! Any other exceptions I need to include? – – I’m sure I’ll think of some . . . . 🙂

Still (life) in the pizzeria . . . a recurring theme . . .

I think I drew my first wine glass in 2004 – I drank from my first wine glass some considerable time earlier . . .

I think the density of the black works really well on the creamy Moleskine paper. The pen is  a Pilot G-TEC-C4 with 0.4 point.

Strange that I’ve gone back to using the pen I used in my first Moleskines -over 8 years ago!  It’s very versatile- good for writing and drawing and the density of the black works on the creamy Moleskine paper.


Still life in the pizzeria… only me . . .
