Byrd: Free to a good home

For one week only (until the next time) Byrd’s first mystery – A Cowardice of Crows is free (on Kindle) all around the world. For those of you new to his world, Symington, Earl Byrd is – to all intents and purposes – a pleasure loving man about town. Best friends with Bertie, Prince of […]

Day 1 of Apocalypse 2: Small Wins

I don’t like change. I suppose it’s because I’m somewhere on some special needs spectrum, which when I was at school was called the Lazy-Thick-Naughty Scale. So the 12 hour scramble to Remote Teaching notice knocked me sideways and not because I wasn’t ready. I was. I had a new laptop. The old one stopped […]

October holiday: 5&6

Tuesday and Wednesday saw us sailing the boat to our moorings. Day1 saw a 6 hour journey from Earith to Ely. I took the helm for twenty minute stretches. A lot of input from Tim (our instructor) to start, and one hairy moment – when special awareness issues struck as we met a boat wider […]

October Holiday: 4

Yesterday was awe and some. The boat went in, OH piloted for the first time. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. As you can see the wheelhouse and rails were assembled after delivery. I’ll post video when I have a better signal

October Holiday: 2

Yesterday we were not where I expected to be. But sometimes it’s necessary to make the best of a bad job. And the Haycock hotel is always good for recharging the creative batteries. This weekend proved no different I always knew I had multiple murders. After Midsomer, it’s de riguer. But after a day here, […]

October Holiday: 1

A half term is a short and easy to manage challenge, 7 posts in 7 days. It is a challenge I shall relish. With the boat due in the water Monday , there maybe an overtly nautical/maritime theme. Only time will tell…

Holiday: 38-41

It has been a busy last few days, meeting up with friends and Step Daughter in London (at the Sherlock Holmes); then into Southend to visit old haunts. We are now back where the term ended and the holiday began: the Travelodge at Bishops Stortford. All in all, I think this is the best summer […]

Holiday: 37

Bit of a strange day today; a bitza day. Dropped some things on the store; had lunch in Chelmsford; visited sister and brother outlaw. Wasn’t sure what to post. On our walk tonight, I saw this unusual little plant. I shall play with the Instagram filters and see what happens, but I feel its original […]

Holiday: 36

This was one of the aims for the holidays and I did it with days to spare. According to fitbit the next badge comes at 2500 miles. Should do that by Easter
