Two weeks away over the Christmas and New Year period with only a smattering of internet cafe online access amlost proved too much for me. Happy to be back on broadband! One consolation was that I re-started work on a YA story I had already blocked out and written about half of it, before other things lured me away. It's looking good and I'm back in the saddle, as it were.
Some sad news I read today was that Pete Postelthwaite has died at the age of 64, from cancer. I think he was one of the few actors that could genuinely play either side of the good guy/bad guy coin with equal ability and will be sorely missed on our screens. 'Sharpe' was only so 'good' because Pete's Sgt. Hakeswell was so 'evil'.
