Well, since I last posted I have been for a week in Barcelona doing a bit of culture. Gaudi was brilliant and the early work of Picasso was very interesting. What really blew me away was the fabulous National Museum of the Art of Catalunya, It was magnificent! A day trip out to Sitges from Barcelona was a nice relaxing time. The weather was superb, it was so warm that I had to move out of the sun to sip my ice cold beer served in a frosted glass! It was so nice to be in a climate that was free from wind and rain...and a stay at the Hilton and a corking rate through SecretEscapes was magic!

As you can see from the new graphic on the page I have been busy writing a new Sherlock Holmes short story. I think it is a cracker with lots of different threads going on and some surprises too! I will say no more! The book itself is at the copy edit stage so once it has been checked I will upload it to both Amazon and Smashwords.

Weather here in Brittany has been foul! Large storms with lots of trees blown down and lots of coastal damage from the high tides. A chap in a local village lost 5 metres from his garden in one storm! We lost power for almost 24 hours and also water (which was a bit worrying!). This is small beer to what folks are experiencing in the UK but it is the continuous rain, day after day that grinds you down. I know a few folk who are planning to spend next winter in warmer climes rather than suffer the wet weather here.

No ideas yet for the next book, it took me about a month to kins of blend some thoughts together but once that was done, I had 10k words written in 3 days, perfect for a short story. watch this space.

Hope everyone is looking forwards to spring, we have daffodils about to bloom and we have Primula's in full flower. Roll on spring.

Have a great week,

Dick xx
