Thank you so much to all those who have expressed interest in the blog. We'll endeavour to keep it!
Of course I responded by keeping silent all day. I was downstairs, (The office is run in the old, occasionally current, Owen family home. It's one of those tall but skinny West london houses with four floors, all rickety staircases and poky rooms* , the sales office is right at the top where heating dare not tread, apparently ) stuffing tacky envelopes with tackier launch invites, no thickly embossed cards for us, oh no. Photocopied foolscap!
Tomorrow we'll try to be more interesting . . .
*Except for the basement which is all darkly lush Victorian wallpaper and first editions, but that's a whole post to itself.
