This, that, and the other

Proof reading went well last night. Just a few tiny alterations to make now, then the copy can go off for external proofing. It should be away to the printers next week and we are planning a launch party in early May. Woo Hoo! First, though, we have to have the Sticky Party – and stick 2,000 CDs into 2,000 books. That should be fun. No, seriously – I think we should make it a fun event, beer and pizza and lots of glue dots…  kind of glue-til-you-drop…

Got to dash – there’s a hot bath waiting for me, and going cold fast!

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

Oh, deer

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
