Back?

I am back – kind of. I got most, but no means all, of the work that I wanted to do, done. Still plenty to do but I need a break for a while, if only to rest my arm – which is in a support bandage from fingers to shoulder today. Please excuse me therefore if I don’t remain here for long. Am just firing up email for the 1st time since Monday morning and it’s taking a fearful long time to collect. I shudder to think…

Anyway – there’s nothing to report – no progress on WIPs etc, though I did knock off a quick hat in bed last night. More of that when I can take photos.

For the curious – the matter that is keeping me away is the production of a book to go with a CD that the Sanday Development Trust has produced. Called Sanday Voices, it is part of an Oral History project. The disk is pressed – I have a copy here at my side (and am thrilled with my first design job!) But the book is lagging and needs all the attention that I can give to it – which won’t be much if I don’t get on and rest my arm. I’ve completed the scanning of images from our photo archive – it took me two and a half days to do that job alone! Some of the text is more or less completely edited, other parts less so. The cover is to do, but will be fundamentally the same as the disk design – so not a lot of work needs  to be done there. All the same… still a mountain to be climbed…

…and so, I must leave you once again – and rest this damn arm of mine.

Back next week. I hope by then that I can say that the book is ready for final editing!

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late. … Continue readingOh, deer
