Found some more old letters today which I’d completely forgotten about; and I bet the people who wrote them would have forgotten them too – at least, would not want to remember them! Nice and warm again which always makes me more active. Can you believe that I actually got up at 10. 30 today and actually managed to collect my mail. I hadn’t been for a good few days and there was a stack of it, including some more book orders. Which reminds me I’ve got to get some more thick brown paper to package them in. Typical of me, I passed the shop earlier and didn’t even think of it. Just have to get it tomorrow.
One thing I’ve still got to do is locate a new bed. The straw stuff (or whatever you call it) keeps leaking out of the old mattress and going all over my new carpet!
I did remember to get some varnish though. That wooden top I carted back will make an excellent coffee table but I’m not risking putting it down until the wood’s treated, as knowing Gareth, he’ll manage to splash red wine over it. That can wait a little though. I’m not looking forward to breathing varnish fumes. Still once its done, its done, I suppose.
Heard nothing back from those TV inspectors . . . zilch! I’m rather hoping they do take the issue to Court as I’d not only beat them, but I’d get the Press there to witness me beat them. Anyway, I’ve really got better things to do than worry about them at the moment.
I guess some people are surprised to see me writing a little more here at the moment.. The truth is, I’m just not a creature of habit when it comes to writing. If I feel like writing something, I just do it. If I don’t, then I don’t. Whatever, I know that I never have to account for my reasons – its something called ‘independence’!
Well, 10 people on Facebook have made me their friend now. I must get round to contacting them personally. Problem is, I’m none too sure how to do it at the moment. Speedqueen has kindly said she’ll show me when she next comes over . . . but ‘no’, I not saying when that will be. Might tell you afterwards though if anything happens.
Oh! That reminds me: I have heard from Amazon now, but they’re trying to put the blame on Nielsens for wrongly stating that KD was the author when I am. They said they go the information of Nielsen’s book data. I’ll get it sorted out whatever.
I had receipts today from the London Agents for the British Library. All the University Libraries have now got copies. So now I can tell you what the title is (if you haven’t already found it on Amazon”. It is . . . DAVID FARRANT: IN THE SHADOW OF THE HIGHGATE VAMPIRE (Vol 1) and it costs ₤12.99. You can get the PO Address from the main Website. All books will be dispatched immediately, but add ₤1 P&P to that, and another 70P if you prefer it by RD.
So that’s really it for the moment. I don’t really want to bore people by talking about nothing!
