Picture post

It’s hectic here.

For one thing, the Aging Hippie is in town.

Pictured here on a trip to the Grand Canyon with me, I met her 7 years ago on a peace vigil in San Francisco. Now she’s doing a house swap with a friend of a friend in Bakewell. She’s been a character on the blog for some time now and if you come to the launch you’ll meet her. She has three times as much energy as me, and the only time I can get her to sit still is in Quaker meeting. Today, if it doesn’t rain, I’m taking her to look round the garden at Chatsworth. She’s seen the House on telly, but like me, isn’t much into the material trappings that result from being a feudal landlord. She also wants to go to Chatsworth Farm Shop, haunt of Sally Howe in Plotting for Beginners. (As well as World Peace, the AH yearns for the perfect scone, and I think she’ll find one there.)

Next picture: Jane and me on the Trail outside Hassop Station yesterday, in publicity photos kindly taken by Jane’s partner.

Footnote -

The launch of Plotting for Grown-ups is on Tuesday September 24th at Hassop Station, 7 – 8.30 pm. and it would be so FAB if you could come. It’s free, and there’ll be wine, nibbles, a quiz, book signing, and squillions of interesting, attractive people.
