Work is frustrating beyond all belief. Trying to print a couple of thousand school place offers and related documentation on one aging laser printer (and one we can occasionally borrow when it's not busy) is sheer hell! Add to this some seriously neurotic behaviour in some quarters and the usual team disintegration, and we have a recipe for confusion, desperation and headaches!
Ordered books to complete all but the last few gaps in the William Kent collection. Its been expensive, considering he is such a neglected author. Should really get back to work on writing about him - firstly in connection with Gissing, and eventually possibly a wider study. All rather pie-in-the-sky, as are all my projects.
Off work tomorrow to offer support and directions for a family hospital visit, and hopefully to relax a little.
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
