I have been putting the old Vobes Show back together again. I am not quite ready as there are things to be done, such as playing music and sorting out Skype interviews sound inputs, and so forth. However, I have managed to get the microphone lashed up again to my Allen and Heath mixing desk.

I had a lovely birthday up at Harriet’s house in Shrewsbury. A lovely escape from my Dad and his dementia. Thanks for the birthdays wishes and cards. My sister held the fort while I was away, but it was pretty full on for her, particularly at night, so we need to formulate a plan to look after my dad better.

I am enjoying dark chocolate in this episode and a cup of fruit tea. My dad went to have his toe dressing removed today and a new one put on. My uncle died recently and my aunt calls to inform me that she has a cupboard of useful pads and things that Dad might find helpful.

I am sorry, this is a rambling podcast about my day in Essex – it is nice to have a day off from looking after my dad – and a bit about the aftermath of the EU referendum. There is even a mention of song lyrics too. I hope it all makes sense.

I have to keep reminding myself that I am a children’s writer. Sometimes the demons come along and it is hard to believe in what one does and think of it as a proper career. I forget that I have been writing silly stuff all my life. Having not made any money from my writing weighs heavily on the mind and challenges one’s belief in oneself.

Today I am off to see my friend who proofreads my books. He has been reading the Isle of Gid for me, the last in the Splidge The Cragflinger trilogy and so I shall buy him lunch as a thank you. I am feeling the effects of looking after my dementia suffering dad. It grinds you down a bit but to put him in a home is not what he wanted.

I am up again at 5am to start my day and I am telling the lovely listener about my trials with a teleprompter for my children’s story channel. I had the made by a friend of mine some time ago and I wanted to see if it would still work. It took a bit of jiggery-pokery but I go there in the end.

Last night I spent an hour trying to sort out a problem for my mother with her telephone account with Plus Net. They refused to send a paper bill out to her and because of that she wouldn’t pay them. My mother is an alcoholic and eighty this year. She is stubborn and can be rude. As piggy in the middle in can be awkward at times.
