SMELL THE JASMIN….now the binder has gone and broke
Just as I had got the pattern of producing my photo books, the blasted binder has gone and broke and guess what, the local electronic newsletter Digame has now changed rules again and says one cannot put adverts on it if you want to sell things like pictures or chutney or books you have produced. Why? because the editor says you will be making money and if you want to advertise, then you have to make a donation to guess who? Digame!! Wonder if the bars and people holding painting exhibitions pay………have to keep ones ears open!!! Back to the binder…..working fine til last night, cracking on with putting my books together….this morning, doesn’t work, had it to pieces, no, still doesn’t work. Now means a trip to Eroski to buy another, hopefully it will come with 40 binding strips and 40 sorts of binding paper. Right p….d off.
It’s about 7 days since I last wrote, been busy what with this photobook, which YES I have had accepted by the owner of Ww.Costacupcakes.com to be sold in her gorgeous cake shop in Caleta…..very tempting shop this, it tempts you to buy and to eat cakes. |It’s extremely naughty. Another thing that has taken up time this week is that my other half has had a night in hospital….not the local one, but one right in the middle of Malaga..with no parking….so could put off driving no longer and took him him, came home, fetched him home the next day but he can’t drive for 14 days as law here covering that is very strict, so I have been doing the driving. Tell you what, it hasn’t half pulled this hip of mine. Be doing a bit more of it in a min, as this binder has got to be fetched, so I can get on with these books, so I can then get them sold and then I can repay me for the cost of the binder!!!
Later……. shop had run out of binders hadn’t they so not my lucky day! So I will go ahead and make more book packs up and leave labels on them telling myself what needs doing, and turn my attention to something else! Not written that letter yet to my friend in America’s Bible Belt and I have now yet another friend in the Western Desert of America…not sure where that is, but where ever it is, it’s where the Cownoys and Indians played out their time in history. I love Red Indians, but not the old movies, can’t watch them any more, so dated, but the few modern films about them. They frighten the life out of me, rather like my kids watching the Daleks when they were younger.
Top Gear been on TV again, Jeremy you really must take a good long look at yourself and grow up. Such a shame because years ago, you were the only jean wearing man for me. But you have now really lost out to Andrew Marr and Count Franscisco de Mosto (the Venetian who presents an Italian history programme) and Andrew Graham-Dixon, the Art Historian.
Right, off now to cut some paper into strips with a very sharp gillotine (wish I could spell it!).
