  • David Haywood,

    A couple of quick replies as my wild animals are keeping me very busy this morning:

    Downbeatdan and Lilith – thank you very much for your kind comments. I’m so delighted if this has managed to bring cheer into a gloomy week.

    Well I hope some enjoyment is had on the way, Deborah (I don’t think it’s worth too much mental investment as a profound work of literature, alas)!

    And thanks also Paul Brown for your remembrances of Wee Waa. I don’t know if I mentioned it at the time (a lot was happening), but during my last conversation with my boat-building grandfather before he died he mentioned how much he’d enjoyed your recollections of your own ferrocement boat on the discussion thread for his blog post. My grandfather commented that you seemed like a good bloke to have a beer with, and I think you’ve proven it again here. Very much appreciated!

    Unfortunately I don’t think there’s much market for collections of short stories – particularly a sort of ‘novel of manners’ about a group of squatocrats in pre-earthquake Christchurch!

    [Or, if there is such a market, p=1 (i.e. only me).]
