The catalogue was finished and sent off to the printers yesterday which is a relief, really – that is, if there are any mistakes (and we all proof-read) it’s too late to do anything about it. We have two sales this autumn, because the Sage is so much in demand. It does seem a pity that he’s so busy now, at a time of life when he might be winding down a bit, when at one time he worried that he wouldn’t be able to put on a sale of china at all. It always came good, however.
I will finish the series about the village school – it’s occurred to me that I was the only person involved throughout all the time I’m writing about and it might be a good idea to get it all down. Though there is quite a lot that I can’t write about for one reason and another,discretion and all that, can’t write about people. Anyway, I feel like a break from that for a few days and I daresay you do too. I’ll think of something quite different for tomorrow.
