Okay, since I’m not allowed to write here until I’ve posted me poems, predictably here I am again. Just to say that tomorrow night I’m off to Orange Street to see an event which promises to be good: poets from the anthology Circled Like a Target, guest poet Juha Virtanen, an open mic. Doors open at 5.30 pm.

Relieved to be going to hear work. Oh, and by the way, our lovely babysitter for the night is one of our favs: T, flute player, Oxford music student and ex-Langton (E’s school) head boy. Must remember to get some food in for them!

Oh and by the way: R in Rome. Had a text which mentioned mosquitoes and a tasty three-course meal. Even more relieved (justfied?!) in going out tomorrow night. 

If you can, come join. Talented folks.
