Very Important News

From Monday, 22 September, for one month, I am going to be the writer-in-residence at What this means is that I will be blogging there. It also means that things are going to change. For one month, I am going to be blogging regularly: every couple of days, even. I don’t know if I can, but that’s the plan.

If I knew how to hyperlink I would send you there now. I hope you can find your own way. If not, never mind. In a month, I will be back.

In other important news, my computer crashed. It is gone. Most things have been saved but I have lost some e-mail – including a folder of reader mail received in the last few months. I reply to all reader mail eventually, so if you have not heard from me, and months have gone by, it probably means that you are one of the lost ones. I am very sorry. If you like, you can resend your e-mails and then I will reply.

What else? Well, I am now on facebook. Please come and be my friend. So far, I’ve got nothing in the way of a profile so I offer almost nothing to friends. But that's gonna change.

Also, Charlie turned two. I made him a caterpillar cake. It was multi-coloured with coconut fur and jellybean feet. The eyes were the best part. They were smarties stuck to large white mints. As soon as I attached the eyes, the caterpillar came alive.

But I missed the party because I had the flu. I have now seen the party photos - and the caterpillar’s eyes are gone. They must have fallen off on the journey, and nobody knew to re-attach them. This makes me very sad.

I am still working on my new Ashbury- Brookfield book. It’s a ghost story, but so far not scary at all. That’s gotta change. A lot of things changing around here.

Finally, my television broke. I woke up the other morning and its red light had gone out. Someone slipped into my house in the middle of the night and blew it out. Or maybe the tv was lonely for its distant planet? I don’t know how to rekindle its heartlight.

Anyway, no tv. But that news might only be important to me.
