I've been somewhat remiss

just lately, it's been nearly a month since I last posted on here.

There has just been so much going on; I keep meaning to post some words and pictures but never actually get around to it.

So what have I been up to that was so important? When you come to think about it, the answer is not a great deal. Even so, the days and weeks seem to pass by so quickly.

It's true I have had a novel to edit, my sixth to be published and I have also finished numbers seven and eight, ready for editing later in the year when the weather is bad and you have to stay in. 
I've been walking a lot and have the front room to decorate next week, after a visit to the grandchildren.
The route I take over the cliffs is now inhabited by a small herd of cows,

which makes it feel very rural.

I also attended a festival in Bath, selling my novels and holding a workshop on "World Building," which was well received.

In food, we had a proper full English last Saturday, with the sausages, bacon, black pudding and mushrooms cooked in the oven,

The potatoes and eggs were, however, cooked in a frying pan!

Not only that, in my quest to discover the best local ales, they seem to be making them faster than I can sample them, here are a couple more for the queue.

There are also cakes to sample,

and yet more sunrises to be enraptured by.

Beetroot rolls to make,

I will endeavour not to leave it so long next time.


  1. Thanks for the update, the beetroot rolls look very interesting. Can you recommend any of your favourite local ales? It's great to support local businesses.Have you ever tried any of the tea grown in Cornwall? It's called Tregothan tea and has been grown there since 2005, I just thought you might be interested in trying more (fairly) local produce!

  2. Hi, the rolls were lovely, especially with Goats Cheese. I'm working my way through the local breweries and food producers, there are so many to choose from though! Bays Topsail and South Hams Two Cows are my favourite beers at the moment. I've not tried the tea, perhaps I should put it on my list.
