The life of a Script

FishNews

Absolutely blown away at the reception and all the comments to the “Script” posts. The feedback took me completely by surprise. I did a couple of interviews in the last days and the event and album were glowingly mentioned.It’s difficult to relate my feelings in this instance.

  Well I knew it was never ever going to be simple and I always try and remain on guard and vigilant in general for those spanners that appear regularly on the horizon.

Planting the High Wood

FishNews

Decent day today despite the occasional intrusion of the odd crisis requiring calm management. Foss finally arrived, yours truly still in a dressing gown after 2 hours ensconced behind a monitor screen playing ping pong on e mails, fielding calls and texts and a surprise drop in from my parents.
