music and ghosts

Current work: nonfic; MH duo book 2
Listening to: Karine Polwart
Reading: The Bride Hunter, Amy Appleton (enjoying so far)

Today’s good news – sorry, trumpet-blowing by me. Or maybe I should say celebrating. Scandals, Sieges and Spooks: Norfolk Ghosts and Legends is still #1 in the Jarrolds list; and I’ve just discovered that Heroes, Victims and Villains of Norwich is #1 in WH Smith’s ‘Norfolk Bestsellers’. That’s rather nice.

Music – sorted out Madam’s guitar lessons. She thought she’d been missed off the list and came home with a wobbly bottom lip last night; I did try encouraging her to talk to her teacher, but she really wanted me to go into the school office and ask for her. Turned out that the guitar timetable was being announced this morning, so she was delighted to find that her lessons start next week.

Had a call from one of the local coordinators re the National Year of Reading – may be doing something with a local school, but we think it’s going to work more on the nonfiction than the fiction side. Actually, this could be a lot of fun, and it could tie in nicely with the one I’m doing for Madam’s school next month. So we'll see.
