It's an odd thing, to be changing your name so late in life, and I expect to continue with the presence of my old name beside me, it's inevitable. Other things I'm doing at the moment:
- trying to rewrite folk tale "The Black Peacock" entirely from memory, having failed to find any trace of it in the real world. Anyone ever heard/of it?
- Planning some elaborate meals to thank the people who gave us kitchen gifts. I'm thinking maybe a sort of three colours theme: Three Course Blowtorch (quite easy) Three Course Steak Knives (might have digestibility issues) and the rather more challenging Three Course Fish Kettle...
- Growing Morning Glories. It's the first time I've taken them successfully from tiny seedlings/snacks for slugs to vast producers of many beautiful delicate flowers. I grew a mix, and I have a pink one, one that is a ghostly pale blue, and another that look stonewashed! No plain blues yet, maybe the vigorous one on the back fence.
