The smell of printing ink

      It's that time of year when Christmas is clearly visible and hurtling towards us, and that means thinking about producing the family Christmas card, the idea for the card has been circulating around my head for a month or so and now the blocks are cut and the printing has begun. Three colours down and two to go, or maybe even three, and the drying rack is full to bursting.

      Once I've finished printing this card and it has been cut and creased I'll start printing a second card, you know the one that mops up all of the 'did you send one to so and so' moments.
      Still as the boss says it keeps me quiet for a few hours each day, even if the music is somewhat loud.
