There’s to be a character in Nao that was a freelance signwriter/painter back in the sixties, just as my Dad was. This is a rough that I’m going to ask my Dad to paint up properly for me. It’s definitely going to be in the book… but the real reason I’m asking him to do it, is so that I get to own a beautiful piece of intricate sign work by my Dad, something I can show to my son & say this is what your Grandad did for a living. It’s such a shame that it’s a craft that’s all but dead now, plastic & vinyl lettering have completely succeeded in killing it off. I’m gonna ask him if he’ll do it for me as a Christmas present, so hopefully I’ll be posting a photo of the result in the New Year. And Dad, if you’re reading this… sorry I was just about to call you   ;-)

    Hahahahaha, ‘You’ll Get On’. Classic. I nearly died laughing that night. Not so sure you’ll be able to explain to Ro just exactly why you got Grandad to paint such a random sentence though, at least not straight away❣
