Is there a collective noun for mosquitoes? Perhaps “a whine of mosquitoes”? I quite like the idea of a whine of mosquitoes, so therefore let me tell you that I had a whine of mosquitoes in my paper bath today. Clearly I rinsed out the paper bath and refilled it, but somehow every print I’ve pulled today has come out of the paper bath with at least one mosquito leg clinging to it.
Millipedes. Need I say more?
A laugh of kookaburras on the clothes line, mocking my efforts.
Arthritis. Getting older is no joke, especially when my right wrist – of course I am right-handed – is killing me, but I still have to print. Grrr.
[I’ve lost count and everything’s stacked between boards for drying, but I think I’ve now done 20 really good prints for the edition]
