So, two mushrooms so far in our grow box ...
No luck with getting firm cancellation of my first website host contact - once you want out they don't want to know. As soon as I get confirmation, hope to be up and running elsewhere.
Delighted to hear that my postcard feature has been accepted for 'possible publication' by a magazine. This hopefully means fairly soon, but they won't be specific on what they might pay. And they pay after publication, so we're not celebrating yet, but it's great to be back after several years out of the race.

I've really enjoyed reading John Irving's "A Prayer for Owen Meany", which my son's family gave me at Christmas - highly recommended. One of those books where, at the end, you keep saying "Ah, so that's why".
Does anyone ever reap a decent harvest of mushrooms from kits? We've tried large boxes (about six mushrooms) and mushroom logs (fewer though v expensive), though our present smaller box seems to have started the business OK.
Frustration with setting up a website - my first choice gave me my domain but I couldn't get their site set-up system to work and they kept giving me further instructions which didn't work. Now I'm trying to get out of the process but still waiting for their response.
I've recently submitted an article on comic postcards and a short story; keeping up my NY resolution to submit something at least once a month. The realisation has at last dawned that I am at heart a feature writer rather than fiction - have had a huge number published in the past and want to start up again. Full of ideas thankfully.
