I've been exceptionally good today. Norman and Jamie have gone off to sea and I've stayed home to work, and heavy weather I am making of it too. Still, it must be done.

I've arranged a few poles and some cross-struts to put up a small roof over the boat-trailer. In my ample spare time, while I'm not going to sea, writing,planting, making biltong or preserving beets.

And now we return to the delights of Machiavellian plotting and and turmoils of Italian city states, with magic. Onwards. I want a break in the new year and must pay for it.


  1. Good luck on achieving your break.

  2. Thank you. I have Quilly and family visiting, and then my French cousin. Without a major effort now I will barely be able to say hello and dive back to my desk. I lost months to the computer circus, the trip to Africa and being sick after - I really need to work.
