Waiting for the book to arrive back for the formal ‘Sign Off’ brings a feeling of déjà-vu and reminds me of those days in Headcorn. I wanted a traditional inglenook fireplace built and had a builder friend arriving from London on the Saturday to do it. I found a Builders Merchant in a nearby village on the Wednesday who stocked all that was required. When I paid for the delivery I asked for an early morning one, on the day of my friends arrival. “We can’t do things that quick, not out here” he said, adding “Saturday next be all right?” I came to learn the ways of the environment in which I then lived, and I’m becoming to learn the ways of the publishing world….I’m not good at waiting.
