I found out this week that I’ve spelt my forename wrong! Luckily everything could be changed so that the pesky little circumflex accent got moved from the ‘i’ to the ‘a’…>< Jan said we should have stuck to the Irish spelling and not bothered with fancy uspide-down vees, but Jano nearly had a fit so, of course, yours truly ended up googling the Welsh name sites – such fun! *yawns*.
Anyway two bits of really good news are that we’ve got the proofreading notes settled in, so the rest of the week Jan will be re-jigging the typesetting and getting the eBook version done! 😎 The other thing is even better, although we’ve had to do a lot of lifting and sorting of books, furniture and knick-knacks for the last three days – because tomorrow work starts on on our new garden room/study! 😀 This will include a proper shelving system for the rickety three-plus bookshelves we currently have housing the Hawke collection all over the house. There’ll be a weeding out of all the aircraft books (to be flogged on eBay later), but most of the rest of the fiction and non-fiction will go up in the new ‘library’ section of the study, along with some swish loungers, new ‘daylight’ reading lamps and the computer paraphernalia!
So – not so much mooching today, but we’re retiring for well-earned long, tall, cool drink very soon. Just time to rootle out some more poetry from the new book to get us feeling all summery and romantic! 😉
Another for Silen and Jano
I want to be alone with you
In beauty, quiet and fresh
Where all is green and sparkling blue –
A place where our pure souls can mesh
Your search was long but ends in me,
Our first meeting sealed our fate
And led us where our hearts roamed free –
Found in the other our true mate.
My heart had lost all hope of love,
Had long dwelt in misery.
In sleepy pools, clear skies above,
We found our bliss – our destiny.
You touched me as no other did,
‘Neath falling water shining,
Cool and bubbling, so well hid,
We found home in our hearts residing.
