New WIP

Woke up at 2am with the idea for a short story, which I am now working on.

Here's a short snippet, if you're interested:

A selection of the late, great Peter Ruehl's newspaper columns.

Good read, the only thing is the section of political writings hasn't aged well.

Still worth a read.

Margaret The recommendations on here puzzle & amuse me sometimes. Good Reads just recommended a book on the history of Alexandria, because I had read a book on swearing!
