I have done a Bad Thing

Or rather, I’ve been watching some bad things on You-Tube.

Yes, this is all in the name of ‘research’ and ‘fact checking’ and ‘conveying atmosphere’. Some days I really love my job. The painstaking nature of the work, the breaks to sharpen pencils and listen to theme tunes, the constant tea and iced fingers. The promise of one more episode of Midsomer Murders if I get this chapter fixed before bedtime. The lovely interruptions of a fairly easy-going McTiny who settles remarkably well while listening to the Fun House theme tune.

    Hi Jenn, congratulations on the birth of McTiny and also Cold Light. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!
    I’m enjoying reading your blog and hope to run into you at Word Soup in the future. Glad to see you’re re-living the 80’s at the moment – it makes me all nostalgic…
