This platform is still very new to me; still learning the ropes (a campanology reference for those who don’t know), so please bear with me (a term gathered from the midwifes). At present, my wife and I are undergoing the stressful and frustrating business of moving house. It seems that every time we take a step forward, someone or something comes along and pushes us back again. I think it’s the uncertainty of it all that is most concerning. After all, our homes are not only our place of security and retreat from the world, they’re also our largest single investment (something I’d like to see changed, to be honest).
The packing is now under way. A book lover, there’s a deep-seated reluctance to part with any of my collection. But, some will have to go, so the local charity shops will benefit from 4 bags of books that I can no longer justify on my shelves. It’s odd to look up from the keyboard and see some of the shelves that line two walls of my small study now empty of their words of wisdom, humour, drama and advice.
This is just a holding post; a piece as much for my benefit in learning how to best use WordPress as to inform my readers here. Once in place in the new home, and settled, I shall start to post items of interest to writers and readers. For now, however, there will be odd posts like this.
