More Than a Thousand Words

Yes I know, I’ve been away from here for quite a long time again, although the time has not been wasted as I have mentioned before.

The book is now totally finished and just awaiting delivery of the first batch from the printers. I have not forgotten those of you whom I promised an advance copy to – well it won’t be long now but I will email everyone to advise them of postage.

Saw Della again; she came down on Good Friday for the weekend, and Gareth also came over on Friday. It was beautiful weather yesterday and we went for a picnic in Highgate Wood. Being Easter it was quite crowded but we managed to find a quiet glade where we enjoyed our wine and sandwiches. Surprising the amount of animals that had sensed the arrival of Spring. The birds seemed happy, flirting away in the trees and bushes; and a couple of love-sick squirrels went even further than that, not far from where we sat. We had taken the camera and amused ourselves by taking a few pics of the occasion.  We wandered home again late afternoon. It was still very warm, but the atmosphere was now almost overcast; absolutely no wind with persistent rumbles of thunder sounding threateningly in the sky.

Back indoors, we just decided to spend the evening still doing nothing; but this obviously included having to cook a late dinner, as well as enjoying just a couple of glasses of sangria. We were both in a somewhat carefree mood, we also decided to finish up some unused film in the camera. After all a picture often says more than a thousand words.

No doubt we will find a couple of suitable ones that we could publish safely online without unwanted comments from people who presumably passed a less pleasant evening (just wait and see if you think I am joking!)

But later on we did have more serious work to take care of; what with one or two pending deadlines in the air pleasure had to be put aside for the sake of serious work. We have a couple of rather interesting projects in the pipeline one of which involves yet another radio appearance; another paranormal investigation is also on the horizon which involves a visit to Kent. Rather looking forward to that one as it will involve a couple of days self catering in a reputedly haunted location which is somewhat off the radar. And a third, details of which I expect to be able to release very shortly…

But anyway, will try and not leave my blog for so long next time, so please keep watching this space everyone!

Sleep – Sort Of!

Saturday again. Much warmer now; at least, compared to earlier in the week. Thought I’d just do a ‘normal’ post for a change (that is,
