During That Odd Week
It’s that strange week when Christmas is kind of over, and yet it’s not, New Year is just around the corner, and there’s not much going on. The rain is falling today, the Blue Star has come and gone, at least, I heard it. With all the shutters closed, I don’t even have a view unless I go onto the roof, which I don’t like to do in my slippers. Mind you, I have been onto bathroom roof in them to check the overflow. If it gets blocked, the rain drips through the bathroom ceiling.
As I’ve not been out, the photos today are from the December archives.
It’s New Year’s Day on Monday, and I intend to put up a post and then try and get back into the daily blog routine, even if there’s little to tell you. Next week, I also aim to work out how much was raised from the sale of the Symi books since ‘Symi, Stuff & Nonsense’ came out. I won’t get the payment from Amazon for several weeks, but that will give me time to find out what the school might need. It’s not going to be a huge amount, but the books are still on sale and sales made right up until Sunday midnight will be included in the donation, so it’s not too late to help out. You can find the books on my Amazon Author Page.
I just went to check that link and noticed that ‘Symi, Stuff & Nonsense’ now has four reviews, all five-star, I am pleased to say, including: “The logophile James Collins gives us a generous and entertaining peep into his life through his travels, his wordsmithery, and at times a quirky look at the day to day happenings on the magical island of Symi where he and his husband now live. Perhaps Symi has found its own Bill Bryson.”
Thank for that! Fab. You can find reviews and add to them here.
Now then, it’s back to work for me and here are a few random shots to keep you going until I next venture out with a camera, which may not be until next year.
