Thought I do a Blog this evening as I’ve actually got some time on my hands for a change. Well, not only that but I don’t have much time before Thursday now. An appointments tomorrow (at least I always make them in the afternoon!) plus more filming later; that local event Tues, then Wed that Pagan event (maybe). But its nice to be able to just relax. And I had a very relaxing evening as well yesterday.
I have been told to put up one more short new book extract up here as its now getting so close. Well, mine is not to ‘reason why’ and when certain people have helped me so much, it’s the least I can do. But it can wait till Thursday as I’ve got to find a ‘new’ bit that will be suitable.
I didn’t get up till 4 today, and by the time I had made some tea and found a shirt I wanted, the daylight had almost gone! No, its not ‘laziness’ ‘cause I didn’t get to bed until about 6 this morning.
Having a bit of a sort out, and its amazing what you find. I actually found the original of “New Witchcraft” No 4 which I feared had disappeared for ever! But its found its way back so maybe Fate is trying to tell me something! Seriously though, am glad I found it as it really is a classic. What will turn up next?!?
That reminds me, I’ve still got to wash my hair tonight for the filming and don’t want to leave everything till the very last minute. One of my pet hates is having to rush; especially when you don’t have to.
What else?. I forgot to tell you. Had a letter from the Tax Office last week asking me to declare my ‘income’. “Somebody” might have been on to them giving them false information. Well, the letter had a ‘normal’ land number on it (I don’t dial 0845 or 0870 prefixed numbers out of principle) so I phoned. Really ‘catty’ woman. I won’t repeat it all here, but basically I told her I was not prepared to ‘declare’ anything. She said I was – I said I wasn’t. She then got mildly threatening and so I said (something like) . . . ” Look love, I’m NOT trying to tell you your job. But you shouldn’t even be in your job if you haven’t got the intelligence to realize that people don’t have to pay VAT on books or newspapers”. She said that’s not what she meant. I said it was what I meant as I didn’t have any other income than that. She said they’d be getting back in touch. I told her not to bother as they’d just get the same answer. I added that my private life was my affair and none of her business.
I don’t know. Some bloody people! Talk about ‘intelligence’, or lack of it. I’m far too busy to be bothered with all that nonsense.
Well, its now quarter to nine, and I think time to open another bottle of wine. Good thing I stocked up yesterday as somehow I seem to have lost a day somewhere!
For the moment,
