Happy New Year!

Best wishes to all for the year 2012. I don’t think anyone would mind if it was a bit less ‘interesting’ than 2011.
We seem to be starting here in Edinburgh with a bang, ie more gales like the ones we had in December. Roads and bridges closed, trampolines blowing on to railway lines, all the features we are becoming used to – I still can’t quite get to grips with the idea of trampolines being so disruptive. That reminds me to say that ‘The Mountain and the Flood’ has finished its free run for the moment – I will announce future freebies here as they come along, but I should point out that Cecilia Peartree’s ‘Crime in the Community’ is on more or less permanent free download from Amazon, Smashwords and varios other outlets if anyone is short of reading material for their Kindle! (it seems unlikely at the moment though).
I’m not planning to spend all day online today, tempting though it is on a day like this, because I have a new computer to play with and I need to install some extra programs on it. There’s nothing quite like the thrill of setting up a new computer to distract me from urgent household tasks and from editing my latest novel! I’ll be trying to charge all the batteries up in case we have a power cut. I still have the new torch and thermos flask I bought in readiness for our last ‘hurricane’. Fortunately today is not the day we move the pantomime set out of the theatre – I haven’t forgotten last year when there was a human chain, a slippery fire escape and a blizzard involved in the move out.
