Is there anyone out there who doesn't know Only Twelve Days has a new cover? If so, the first part of this blog is just for you. However, I would be most surprised if you hadn't already picked up on this exciting news, as I have tweeted the news all over the place.
Exciting news? Yes of course it is exciting news. Well - it is for me anyway. It heralds a whole new front to Only Twelve Days, a delightful love story about two lonely people in a world moving too fast for them. But I won't go on about it any more, suffice to say I hope you like the new cover, with the young lady looking upwards to reflect the bright new future she so desperately hopes will be hers?
I have just booked up somewhere for our Christmas Lunch! Can you believe it? We are not into October yet and I have booked up our Christmas Lunch. We will only be gone for a couple of hours, but I have to say that when there are only two of you at this happy time of the year, it is rather nice to feel you are in a throng of people rather than just alone. I have no problem being just the two of us. We know what each other want, thinks etc. (believe me, we should do after ** years) and we are quite happy to come home and chill out with a glass or two. But for just those two hours, it is good to see other folks enjoying themselves. Of course there is the other thing. I won't be cooking and clearing up that day. Not that I have a big thing about cooking and clearing. Its just I am not over keen! You need to be really up for it to mess around on Christmas Day. I have been there and done that and I look for something different now.
Years ago, when we lived in and around London, we had lots of parties. Parties for this, parties for that, we didn't have to have a reason, just throwing a party was good and I cooked a variety of meals for up to 24 people at a time - and I loved it. By the way, when I say in and around London I mean we moved a lot. Moving house was a hobby of mine. I loved to up sticks and move on. Meet new people etc. But the housing market was more buoyant then and I certainly wouldn't recommend it now.
Okay, what else can I add to this post? I have already mentioned the state of Kelso in previous posts and you must be fed up with hearing about it. I am certainly fed up with all the mess in the beautiful town. Diversions here - diversions there. Road up here, road up there. When will it end? Enough said about that.
I am ending on a positive note. I hope you all like the new cover as mentioned above. if so let me know vocally... if not.... let me know quietly - very quietly... :-)
Have a great day and a good honest life. You only get one crack at it. Be proud of it!!
