I feel as though I am drowning in work at the moment: this morning saw a 50 mile round trip to the University of the East to drop off three sheets of paper, applications that I am not allowed to sign so they have to go in someone else's in-tray.
On Thursday, I will travel to Liverpool for the day to examine someone's MPhil, and during all this I am still trying to get my expenses back for a trip to Scotland to be an external examiner for a course up there.
All this, and I earn less than a tube driver.
Think of some good things... think of some good things...
Martin has cleaned, polished and re-strung my Hofner bass (the one I used to play in The Chefs) which now looks bonny and beautiful.
I am going to interview Viv Albertine this afternoon for the paperback version of my book. I have had no luck in my search for Lesley Woods, Jane Munro or the women from Delta 5. This is a shame, because without them the book will be rather focused on the south of England. It would be nice to balance the book (ha ha).
I finished the drawing for Roberto Cassani's CD and Martin is doing some lettering for it.
I completed two songs yesterday and have discovered that the iPhone that I got when I renewed my phone contract last week has a very good quality microphone.
I had the piano tuned yesterday and it sounds lovely when Offsprog 2 plays her pieces.
