Things to sort out now that DOGNAPPED! is getting closer to publication.
For a start I've grown a beard - yes it has been that long since we last spoke! I believe that it gives me a more serious, author-like countenance, others believe that I look complete mess.
Tramp is a word that has been used.
And that's one of the nicer ones!
Oh yes - Ted came back. Ted is the New Forest pony that Kate sold last year. He's back. He must have heard that Buddy had left and that there was a space in the stable.
Unfortunately I don't think that anyone told him about Billy Whizz (confused - see the earlier blog from Billy Joel to Billy Whizz).
Never mind, he's here now. Obviously Kate is like a girl with, well - two ponies really!
Kate's daughter and her family come over from Texas early in March. We bought a new bathroom suite, so I suppose that's got to be installed in the smallest room before they get here!
'Sorry what was that, dear?'
Oh, and re-decorated then!
Late in March, Kate's son gets married so you know what that means don't you?
No, I'm not redecorating the living room; and keep your voice down for God's sake - she'll get ideas!
I was referring of course to the stag night - wahaaay!
'Pardon, my love? Oh yes, of course it's only going to be a quiet affair.'
No - stop sniggering, she'll hear you!
And I guess that's about it for now.
Oh, nearly forgot to mention - me and Kate get married in August. We set the date and everything. Places have been booked, things are being organised. Frilly girlie stuff, flowers and the like.
Apologies - I missed what you said then?
I know! Two stag nights in the space of a few months - how good is that!
