Just a quick couple of pieces of news:
1) There won’t be a post for a couple of weeks as I’m off on my hols to Lake Como in Italy, staying at a hotel in the beautiful village of Cernobbio. I’ve set myself the task of learning a bit of Italian as well, as Dante is one of my favourite poets and at some time in the very distant future I fancy reading him in the original.
2) The draft of Thumb is back from the editor. Positive feedback but huge amounts of work to do!! I will ponder the changes as I look over the lakes with a glass of wine in my hand and an interesting piece of local food on the end of a fork.
