A joy isn't it?
Yes, that's right, a work whinge. And I don't care what you say. I know I get six weeks off when the rest of the world is sweating in offices. I know I am guaranteed time away from work every seven weeks or so while the rest of the world slowly sinks into their pits of routine and misery.
I know that I am, essentially, very lucky.
But I also know that this is not what I signed up for.
Anyway, enough of that, and no, I won't be apologising for my absence. Things needed doing. Things still needed doing. Me and DK are moving, again, things around me unravel a little then tighten up. You know: stuff.
The point is though: I'm back. So Rejoice and stuff and behold me, all minty and fresh, how.
I've even got some news.
If you wander through my fairly unminted website you will find a new events page which is chocka full of events for me and DK.
But, in case you're lazy here they be, my Autumn Tour dates...
29th - Reading and Q & A @ Cramlington Library 7:30 - 8:30pm
15th - Reading and Showing Off alongside Carol Clewrow @ Teesside University (Darlington Campus)
17th - Reading and Hanging About @ WORDplay, the Whitley Bay Book Fesitval.
24th - Hanging Around, Chatting and Signing @ Durham Literary Festival, Durham University Student Union.
Yus, that's right. Look at me all at Durham Festival, sharing a tent with Tony Horne and the far lovelier Valerie Laws.
