Do not panic my fine friends, you can stop going into the Demon Chat Room now (unless you want to of course) for I am back. I’ve dried out my computer, hoovered out the cobwebs, washed the holiday laundry and return to you with both vim and vigour. For some inexplicable reason, my phone will allow me to put everything onto my website – except content; I really must look into it.
My posts all go onto the Wartime Housewife Facebook page and onto a Twitter feed because it’s daft to ignore an audience who only read in those media. Facebook occasionally gets odd bits that don’t appear on the blog, but nothing that would negatively affect your reading pleasure or make you feel left out. However, my loyal blog readers, you are more than welcome to go to my Facebook page and like it to make me look hugely popular and then never go there again.
We had a lovely holiday, camping in Lady Somerset’s garden which, as I have mentioned before, has the advantage of allowing the boys to sleep in a tent but allowing me access to clean lavatories and hot running water.
We visited Muchelney Abbey, Cleve Abbey, Farleigh Hungerford Castle, The West Somerset Railway, Minehead, Clarke’s Outlet Village and prowled Glastonbury High Street in search of tea, Italian food and postcards. The boys ran up and down the Tor several times a day and we all got pounced on by Lady S’s giant dogs.
But now we are back. Boy the Younger starts his last year of primary school tomorrow and Boy the Elder embarks on his final GCSE year. Changes of school are in the offing (god help me, not again…) and I am getting seriously stuck into my current project for Old House Books. I also have a new and exciting photographic project simmering on the hob for next year, but that will be revealed in due course. Literally.
The Wartime Housewife’s No-Nonsense Manual for Modern Living is at the printers and the publicity will be galloping towards the home strait as soon as the boxes arrive at The History Press. I will let you know when I will be on the wireless, hopefully the TV or at a bookshop near you.
Right now though, I’m off to my pit. I have finally obtained responses to questions which I’ve been waiting on for two days and I can therefore make subsequent plans and rest easy in my bed.
Good night x
