However those that know me will understand that my will isn't completely steadfast. I succumbed once to a lone Friday night tipple whilst watching a bit of telly. That darned cooking wine came into my home just a little too early. And I bought lunch on the days that I went to Double Elephant in Exeter for my lino cutting course. The bacon and egg sandwich from the Gandy Street Kitchen was totally lush and whilst not entirely guilt free I can console myself with the fact that I bought from a local business and not a chain.
Whilst I've mentioned printing I am now going to 'fess up to my biggest transgression to date. Yesterday a whole load of 'contraband' lino and a cutting board arrived. This totally contravenes the ban on buying craft materials except to finish existing projects. I'm hanging my head in shame and will be rushing to a nearby Catholic church to absolve for my sin. Actually that's a flagrant lie as I'm over the moon. Let's get on with cutting that cat picture for my good friend Dr Betty!
