Although I usually quite like Mondays, I’m at a bit of a loss what to say today. Nothing has happened really, which does not make it any easier. Though in a way it makes a change. Things have been so hectic generally of late, that its sometimes nice to have nothing to say.
I did have a small clear-out of some stuff over the weekend, and found some interesting things I’d mislaid. Well, I had not ‘mislaid’ them but they were buried in the attic cupboard and I’ve long since been putting off rummaging about in there. Its cold in that room for one thing. Luckily though, most of the stuff was in relevant boxes, so I could take them next door in the warm one at a time.
Got a few surprises at stuff I’d really forgotten. Quite a few old emails dating back since 2003. Many of these were printout-outs from various websites, but many more were personal hand-written ones – by that I mean the person had copied out emails to herself and added these to personal letters. Many more were from other people but these were photocopies or print-outs mostly. I would not, of course, reveal the contents of these here, but some were very interesting because some of the content of some of them is being blatantly contradicted today. Oh dear! What a scandal I seem to have on my hands, but I will deal with that in my next book.
One thing I did re-find though was a series of cartoon-like illustrations which the person had sent me for potential publication. I have since lost track of the person but I still have the letters from him giving me permission. They really are quite gifted pieces of work, and exceptionally funny. The sort of thing you could relax with, over a cup of nourishing broth on a cold day! Actually, I do have the guy’s last address, so thing I’ll try and contact him again to get some updated permission. Like to make contact with him in any event as NOBODY has heard from him for quite a few years.
There was some oldish 6 by 8 colour photographs as well. So might use a couple of those as well.
On future news, keep your eyes open for ANOTHER big change soon. I capitalise ‘another’ as it really is another one, and will be coming quite soon. K has told me to keep this ‘hush, hush’, but I think I’m allowed to say that much.
What else? Nothing really. I’ll be getting back to the book soon though, and have to finishing sorting out all the ‘new’ material.
For the moment,
