Sad day for Dr Who fans

I know I'm not alone in being saddened upon hearing the news that the beautiful and talented Elizabeth Sladen has died. I grew up with her as Sarah Jane Smith with Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker, and after the series was brought back was delighted to see her first as a guest appearance then with a series in her own right.

Elizabeth made SJS one of the more memorable Dr Who companions and gave a depth of humanity to the terrors and ordeals that the two Doctors she accompanied. She will be sorely missed.

Life without Broadband is ...


Living in a temporary address and not having the customary broadband access that I was used to is not easy. How many times have I been to the wi-fi place (half an hour walk away from the house) and remembered something that I a) intended to do, or b) really should have done whilst on-line? Answer - too bloody many.

I'm sure the guys at the wi-fi place think I'm a coffee freak.

Soon. Soon there will be a semi-permanent address and then there will be bradband. Oh, yes. It will happen.

Anyway, writing going well. Job interview lined up for just after bank holiday and the sun is shining. So it's not all bad.

Move complete

Well, I'm now ensconced into Aylesbury - still haven't decided on a suitable alliteration for it yet, though - and am coming to terms with the lack of broadband service. I'm currently relying on wi-fi in local pubs and coffee shops, so it's not all that bad.

I'm writing and sorting out the logistics of running the Meridian Writing site in the mornings at the moment and then venturing into Aylesbury to send/read e-mail. Tough, but things are getting done. Just have to find employment now ...
