A Promise is a Promise

Just 2 weeks left to complete my zine celebrating 50 years of Guy N Smith's novels. It will be done, even if I only have half a screen left to work on.

Copper Jack/ Birthday Boy

 Started 59th year (yes it my 58th birthday) by taking a trip down the Tawe river on the Copper Jack. It was an excellent 90 minute cruise, complete with a full audio narration. I recommend it highly. 

For more pics from the cruise, check out Sweyne's Eye.

We then had luncheon in The Red Lion pub before heading back to our temporary house for a chilled evening with little fudjcakes:

Cutting the Page Count

Fine-tuning my Guy N Smith zine, which will be available to buy next month. Trying to squeeze the page count to tighten the content and make it cheaper to buy. Currently standing at 140 pages...

Bog Plants & Pen Inspection

We found a parcel waiting for us this morning from Hampshire Carnivorous Plants. They literally brought our bathroom windowsill to life:

It has been a bit of a hectic week at work. My application for a new job has landed me an interview next week, so I have at least a glimmer of hope for a fresh start. Whilst it is great news that I have the chance for a new work position, it makes for a stressful weekend as I prepare for the forthcoming interview. Whilst the written word presents me at my best, interviews tend to present me at my worst due to my anxiety/

Anyway, time to get my head down. I'll end this post with a short video I took of little fudjcat being introduced to my new pen lol:

Half Day But Still in the Office.

Determined to find an alternative position with my employer, I took a half day today, but spent it at the office working on an application for a more appropriate job. 🤞

Last Day Of GNS Photograhy

Finally completed my model photoshoots (models meaning my toy figures) for the upcoming Guy N Smith zine.

Unfortunately, to keep prices low, I have needed to excise 24 pages of the zine. But there's still enough content to keeps readers of the publication interested when it reaches the shelves.
