Things on my mind this weekend

The prospect of meetings taking me nearer to full time work brings into sharp relief the ways that my current life relies on my not doing that, and the many things on my 'to do' list that will probably then not get done.

New releases of Windows and MS Office have so many new options that would clearly be useful if I can make the time to work out how to make them work with or instead of things I am already used to doing.

My daughter could be a great help if she ever got out of bed.

Don West died (suddenly) this weekend. This makes me sad. It is a long time since I read any of his fan writing, but his writing in the Eighties was engaging and valuable and had major effects on my life as a science fiction fan, while his fan art has enlivened and amused (and occasionally enraged) for more than half my life. It has always been a privilege, if sometimes an uncomfortable one, to be caricatured by him. We will miss him.

Next week is going to be very busy indeed.

Must have missed this earlier - very sorry to hear about D. West - I never knew him particularly well but he seemed like a nice person.
