Gosh! Have I had a busy day. I don‘t think I’ve been on the phone so much for as long as I can remember.
Mostly technical stuff, so I won’t bore you all with it here. Yet essential though.
There were a load of letters as well. I’m sure the sorting office does it deliberately, but no post for a few days, then it all comes at once!
As you will all be aware, it is my birthday tomorrow. But I won’t dwell on that. How old am I? I expect many people would like to know, but I’m not telling you! Age means little to me, as most people know. There has been much speculation about this; and just as many contradictions! So just take your pick! Many people believe I’m much younger than I am (clean living you see!); unless you choose to believe the rather unkind person on the Internet a couple of years ago that broadcasting to the world that I was 70! So that would now make me 72, which of course I’m not. This was not a genuine mistake, by the way, it was the result of ‘bitchiness’ instead – which rather suits that person’s neurotic character!
Anyway, birthday’s aside. They have never really meant anything to me.
I decided to go out to get some things around 5.30. I realized ‘office had more-or-less finished, so it seemed a good time to go. Got back in about an hour, and decided to put a couple of shelves up in the kitchen. Only managed one as I realized one wall was tougher than I thought. Its an outside wall, and needs a proper drill – which I ain’t got! Still, its better than nothing.
Probably all this activity has been helped by the warmer weather. Still, better not be too over optimistic, there’s still February to go yet.
As I said, the first book is now totally finished, so that’s a load of work less. Although I still have the others to finish. Speaking of which, a friend asked me to write a personal introduction for his new book today. I was quite honoured as he is quite a well known writer. Nice to be appreciated sometimes!
So, amidst all this turmoil, think I’ll just go and put my feet up. Still a load of vintage letters to be sorted through for the next publication, but that can wait till tomorrow. Then I’ve still got to worry about that bloody shelf!
But for the moment,
I guess its time for some relaxation!
