2021 in Pisticci .Saturday and the evil printer  .

I have only been outside once today , but it was worth braving the cold .

About an hour ago.

I started today by setting up the evil printer to see if I could use thick paper to make prints..

Before that I had emailed lots of photos of paintings to my laptop from my phone as the evil.printer refuses to recognise my WIFI.

All set up doing nothing.

I found the ” easy printing app” on the laptop. (Huh!!!)

It took at least an hour until I managed to print something as I couldn’t get the paper to load. Eventually it worked when I more or less slammed it in and heard a loud click.

After that I experimented with printing different sizes of prints.

Then it was lunch time.

I went back to carry on while the going was good.

For some reason although nothing had changed, a notice appeared on my screen that there was no printer available …..and that was that. ….


Next , due to a misunderstanding about the number of watercolours a client wanted, I set to work replace one that has been sold twice.

2 drawn in ink and one roughly sketched in pencil.

I was accompanied again by Agatha Raisin.

And now it’s dark and I’ve worked all day without hardly a break. Maybe my booster has given me a boost!

Cheers 🍷🍷


  1. My printer and I have issues, also. It regularly tells me that there is “no printer”. After multiple hours of researching and trying to talk to the company, I was told to unplug the printer for a minute and then plug it back in. Occasionally, I have had to also restart my computer. But these things have always gotten the printer to work again….the mysteries of science!! 🙂 Good luck.
    Do you have a P.O. Box or address that you would share? I would love to send you a little something from the USA?
    I read your blog everyday. It’s a nice part of my quarantined day!

  2. My printer has “issues” also. My computer often tells me that “no printer is available”. After much research and time on the phone with the printer company, they told me to unplug the printer for a minute and then replug it in. If that doesn’t work, restart the computer. This actually fixes it every time. You may want to give it a try.

    I greatly enjoy your blog. Stay well.
