Do you love it when you go to see your favourite band and they play "the old stuff"?! I do. 

We'll be seeing Frank Turner play this week, and I'm reeeeaallly excited. I've written a couple of his song lyrics in calligraphy, and this is one of the really old ones I love.

Steve and I met when I came back to Cumbria after a long time away. We both grew up here, and we'd probably been on a few of the same trains without knowing it, years before we fell in love.

These lyrics always make me smile now. 

Written in Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White ink on GF Smith Colorplan paper with a Nikko G nib.
