I have just met with and joined a great new group called Club Soda. This is a group for people who either want to cut down or give up drink but who still want to enjoy meeting in pubs and wine bars and enjoying good company. Do have a look at their website at www.joinclubsoda.co.uk this is something uniquely different and well worth supporting. I have also added a link on my new links page.
Last weekend my brother's eldest daughter and her daughter visited from the United States. It was fantastic to see them. What a shame my brother died from alcohol poisoning and never got to either appreciate his daughter or to even know his own grandchild.
In the papers again but this time with a nightmare photograph! Chindi is a group of self-published authors I belong to. We are holding some workshops for any of you who might be also interested in having a go at writing a novel. We meet once a month in a wine bar, hence it has been impossible for me to discuss 'I Don't Drink!' in that venue. It just wouldn't be polite.
