Ehm, I am completely astonished right now. I have become a bit of an audio fan in recent months – not least because there was a lot of audio courtesy of Armitage to consume. And lots of opportunity to listen, thanks to my crafty endeavours. But it was totally news to me that there is yet another audio book drop scheduled for July.
Damn, I am disappointed now. I thought I had a scoop here. But this is how *I* found out: Audible retweeted a customer request for recommendations. And good fan that I am – especially because I had asked for recommendations myself the other day – I felt obliged to reply with some complimentary tweet.
And the marketing dept at audible really has picked up recently. They were on the ball with their reply. Fellow fan Deirdre dared to ask a direct question about new audio works by Armitage to look forward to, and only then did I realise that there was something coming in July…
Ah well, who cares – there’s something to look forward to, even if I am the last to know 😂.
In other news, I am back in nostalgia land.
Yeah, dog roses in hedgerows. And I didn’t have to look hard. It was just there to be picked. Apart from dreaming of slender, long fingers that are picking dainty roses, I have been sorting through shelves, cupboards and drawers, found lots of things, laughed and cried over them, and have carried about 100 kilos of books to the charity shop… There is a latent sadness underneath it all, although my mum’s new flat – contract signed last week – is beautiful and big. But the house where I grew up, will be gone forever, soon… It’s nice to still have the memories, though.
More decluttering to come the next few days. And months. Sigh… But I’ll be back in Ireland for a while in between.
Oh, just a little heads-up re. Flat Richie. I have made a few enquiries and I have found out that it has been received at the last destination – but I have not heard from the recipient, yet. I’m going to write to her and find out more…
