A Gap In The Proceedings

Just to warn you that I won't be making too many posts in the near future due to a combination of computer issues (my computer needs a new motherboard, and Fujitsu Siemens are taking an age to arrange it) and my temporarily failing vision. I blame that on the gin. I'll be back as soon as I can and meanwhile, just chat among yourselves.

So, have you heard the one about the antelope and the zebra?

Get off the gin, you know it tastes like floor cleaner. Toilet Duck is far more tasty.

Hope everything gets sorted soon, Jane. Especially the eyesight.

Gee whiz. What's up with you stepping away from the blog so soon after I've come to it? I hope your eyes get better. And come back to us when you can.

Don't worry, I've not gone too far.

Engineers have once again failed to turn up but they're booked in for later today; and before that I'm off to get my eyes checked out so I'll probably be back and in full flow by lunchtime.

Hi Jane

I hope all is now well...

I did wonder why you hadn't replied to Haarland Phillipps on my blog. Wishing you all the best with the vision issue though- I somehow pictured you more as a malt whisky drinker. Take care.

Thanks, all. My eyes are still pretty interesting: I've been diagnosed with posterior vitreous detachment, which means that the jelly in my eyes (lovely!) is clumping up and peeling off the membrane which separates it from my retina. It's a bit better today, but reading is still difficult so forgive my typos.

It might continue to deteriorate, or it might just stop here and not bother me again. I have been warned not to take part in any boxing matches or bunjee jumps ever again (so that's my plans for the weekend scuppered), but apart from that it's business as usual.

Now all I need is for Fujitsu Siemens to sort my ******** computer out and I'll be back to full strength, once I've finished this particular book which is fascinating but intense. After that, I'll be back working on the Paradox Cloud (novel number 4), while writing two non-fic proposals I've been brewing since the summer--one of which is very personal, and I have high hopes for it.
