Web site upgrade will be happening in about a months time. Just a refresh and some added space for book 3. It would have been done sooner only my web site specialist got married, today, so he had other things on his mind!

So what about something like ‘Chuck Me a Lifebelt’ or ‘Help, I’m drowning’ or ‘The sea looks a bit rough today!’ Sitting here, in deepest Wiltshire, the waves feel a long way away and all I can hear is a motorbike and the breeze blowing through the ceanothus.

Actually this grass is in Devon, but it is redolent of Wiltshire, and the open grassy hills.
