Self-respect, clack and runner.

1. I work back over Three Beautiful Things to find suitable entries for the book. Looking at 2004 I feel as if I am reading someone else's words and I find myself able to think of my own work: 'This is all right.'

2. A mysterious clacking noise in the sitting room turns out to be a contented Nick playing shut-the-box.

3. Spotting a photo of Andy finishing the London Marathon.


  1. Nick playing by himself. You didn't join in?

  2. I was quite happy by myself, especially as Clare has important writing work to be getting on with!

    Shut-the-box is, like the patience card game, something to do when you have a spare moment on your own. But it makes a much more interesting noise than cards can.
