The problem is I have 6 meals a day. But, yes, the monk-like meal definitely becomes the day's focus. I'm already thinking about tomorrow's sticky toffee/black pudding. I'm at peak weight.

When I come away on these solitary, remote writing treats I end up eating odd meals eg. 3 squeezed oranges and a heap of mince. Or potato cakes and Kit-Kats. Apples and rice. That sort of thing.

Poor Carol was called up this week when I had no hot water for a few days - calmly orchestrating from 300 miles away....

I think a night in Durham then a trip to Carol's place will be just the tonic, Deborah...

Ha, thanks Mark. I'm around until Tuesday (I think) if you're back before then. Will try and say hello.

Hughes' magnificent Millstone Grit was a big influence on my latest book, Under The Rock.

I've just seen the famed weasel 'war dance' aka 'the dance of death' in a lush wet field on a country estate that I wasn't meant to be on.

All day power-cut in the village I'm staying in due to storms today. No light, heat, cooking or phone signal. So I'm writing with pen and paper and contemplating cooking on the open fire like it's Ye Good Olde Days.
