This episode is a passionate plea for people to realise what a fabulous place England, and indeed, Britain is and how I worry we are spoiling it. It is also an acknowledgement that i am unable to make the episodes as good as I would like.

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.
