This morning's post (read in bed; what a privilege) included my six monthly royalty statement from Scripture Union for the book A Youthworker's Tale. It has sold 768 copies to date, 19 in the last half-year, and I now only owe them £416.92. At 45p (my 7.5%) a copy that's just another 1,000 sales.
The second letter I opened said, 'Did you know there is a small group of men and women in the UK who are quietly amasing huge personal wealth?' Liz had to prize me up from the head-banging position. Maybe the small group of wealth accumulators could buy a few copies each. They'd enjoy it, I'm certain.
Anyway there is always someone worse off than yourself and tonight it's the family who have won a holiday in Florida. That's missing isn't it?
Joke of the week (look away now those of you who are in any sense threatened by sexual jokes).
Why are hurricanes female?
Because when they come they're warm and wet and when they go they take the house.
Leamington 2 Oadby 2 in the FA Cup. Nice afernoon in the sun. Replay Tuesday. Still hanging on to the idea of Forest in Round 1 proper.
Eating out at Solo tonight. Best restaurant in Leamington. It's not all those 45ps. Liz is paying. Hooray.
