Such a long time since my last post, yet it's flashed by in a whirl of events, busy-ness, craziness, things going wrong and things going right ... and here we are at the end of May, having bought a narrowboat and in the flurry of moving on board. I am exhausted already, and we have only just begun!

Please everyone note that Sunpenny and its imprints are all closed until 7th June, by which time we should be settled in and ready to roll once more. I have been trying to do bits of work in between packing etc, but it's just not happening as I would like.

Most stressful, of course, are the goodbyes! We're VERY very sad to be leaving our lovely apartment above DRL Marine boatyard/boat hire, at Womack Staithe, and especially to be leaving the wonderful people of our church (North Broads) and bible studies, of DRL Marine, and the Norfolk Broads in general. Exchanging all this for a canal near Slough just doesn't seem a great move, right now! LOL! But Andrew will be close to his work, and it brings an end to 18 months of him travelling home every weekend. And this was clearly demonstrated to be a good thing when, two weekends ago, he wrote off his car while travelling home Friday night. Praise the Lord, both he and the other driver were absolutely fine! And a car is just a hunk of metal, after all. But it brought home to us that the move will be a good thing.

Additionally, it brings Sunpenny Publishing into London, effectively, which is also good! More author meetings made possible, more easily, quite apart from anything else. So business wise this should be an excellent move.

Think positive! ... and now, back to packing and sorting and arranging, for me. Yay. Not. ;-)
