Not much to post today on the old weblog: exam season is upon us and I have no time to pursue pursuits until all is done and dusted, so my posts may be sporadic over the next month.
Please do check back from mid-June, as following that, I have lots in the pipeline: I am thinking of expanding my writing again. At the moment I blog and very occasionally write for poetry journals; I'm considering submitting more fiction and non-fiction to niche magazines and getting back into poetry in a more sustained way. Should I get back into actual readings (shock horror) I might even record some for the blog, we'll see how badly they turn out...
I do, for once, have a definite idea of some of the goodies I'll be blogging well in advance. Well I never! They are:
- Brighton shopping-fest. What better way to celebrate the Royal Wedding than by purchasing tat from Snooper's Paradise and Peas Pottage Giant Boot Sale? What... it's a seaside resort you say? A centre of culture and wild parties, you claim? Pshaw, just tell me where Oxfam is and no one gets a hissy-fit aimed their way.
- Nunc Est Bibendum 'Summer Edition'. It's going to involve His Lordship making cocktails in a field. Or a park. (Note to self: check drinking is permitted in said park...)
|Scarper! Parkie's spotted us!|
- Chap Olympiad. We've got our tickets! His Lordship will be dressed tastefully and smoking a pipe; I shall be gotten up like a 50s barmaid and, in all probability, freaking out about the wasps round my Pimms. Do say hello if you see us.
- Vintage By Hemingway. Yup we've got our tickets for this too. Saturday, to be precise. By 'eck they were expensive: 'it so best be good' says she in her charming North London dialect.
- Ealing Jazz Festival. If you've never experienced the Ealing Summer Festival, and live anywhere near to tube, check out their website now! As very-very-cheap festivals go (think £4 to get in!) it is one of the finest- green and parkalicious, with some top quality live acts.
