We really must catch up sometime.

Did I tell you that I’ve got a full time job? A most marvellous job in a most marvellous organisation stumbled upon most unexpectedly.

No? Goodness. I should have told you that.

Did I tell you that I am learning Arabic? Which pleases the lads no end, especially when they’re helping me with my homework.

No? Well, I am. I can’t believe I didn’t mention it.

Did I tell you that I’ve got a piece in the soon-to-be-launched, and I think it’s almost in your bookstore Kill Your Darlings journal?

I didn’t tell you that either? Oh. It really has been a while, hasn’t it?

  1. Hooray, hooray, hooray! So especially pleased to hear about your job. That should make a big difference in day-to-day life in Abu Dhabi, I imagine.

    And I should tell you that a very good publisher with an advance copy of that journal recently told me that she particularly loved your piece and thought it was the stand-out. For political reasons I can’t pick favourites, but let’s just say I was unsurprised …

  2. You have been busy! I was flirting with the idea of learning Arabic but you know…that seemed like too much hard work….and then I had a baby….


  3. congrats! well. no wonder you didn’t have time. i mean الذين يمكن بلوق عندما كنت تعلم اللغة العربية

    (translation: who can blog when you’re learning arabic?)
