Also big in Ireland…

I had several detailed, intricate and thoughtful posts stored up in my memory. They’re still there, but they’ll have to wait a while because somebody has, rather carelessly, left a ship by a beach. I once left my keys in the freezer. Nobody tried to steal them but, like big boats in shallow water, keys in the freezer are not a great idea.

As is inevitable in such situations I’ve been running round yelling words into a microphone such as: ‘The boat is right behind me. I can see lights on,’ and, ‘It’s chaos. I’ve just passed a man with a large and very full sack.’

I’ve also been interviewed by radio stations in New Zealand and Ireland. I probably made sense, although I did nearly drop off at my desk earlier.

Tomorrow, like a Devonian Mercury, I’ll be running around the seafront with a microphone again. I’ll stop short of swimming out to the wreck though, on the basis that it’s bloody cold and I’m not a very strong swimmer.

I’m sure this wouldn’t have happened had it been the Argo.

    I’m torn between two comments:

    Something about Santa Claus.

    And wondering if the man with sack was looting the boxes of dangerous chemicals?

    I’m also torn between two comments, either:

    If you seen anyone else with a full sack, please send him my way.

    And:

    Good luck with the new blog, it’s looking great. 🙂

    How did it feel being interviewed?

    It wouldn’t have surprised me if they were carrying away dangerous chemicals. Litterally, whatever people couldget their hands on, they did. It was much like the Next January sale, only outdoors.

    Linda: Thanks, glad you like it! It was very odd being interviewed – I was so busy I was typing my scripts out between answers, but was also kind of fun. I never thought anybody on the other sideof the globe would have been remotely interested in what I had to say, I was wrong.

    It’s really sad to see what’s happened to Branscombe though – it was a lovely, picturesque hidden gem of a coastal village. Now it resembles a building site – and I can already see one of those out of my window.
