Flip Sides …

‘Flip Sides’ by Ms Paige Turner
Catherine Klyhn (known from now on as Miss Evening Workshop) gathered together a bundle of lovely people for our 20th Creative Ink Evening Workshop last night. We met in the Seasons Café in Amersham. The cost is £18 and I sometimes wonder if the huge attraction is Miss Evening Workshop’s huge Irish warmth and copious wine and food that one gets for the all inclusive fee. (There’s always a waiting list so do contact me and I will pass details on to Catherine.) Summer/The Protagonist – Wednesday 4th July, Autumn/The Stranger – Wednesday 3rd October, Winter/The Visitor – Wednesday 5th December.
Anyway, I’m half Irish too (which is by the by) and last night I repeated ‘The Antagonist’ which I did at Fish Hoek Scribblers in Cape Town last month. I enjoy living on flip sides and miss the kitchen knife I left in South Africa when I am in the UK and miss being able to have a full bath when I am in SA. ‘The Antagonist’ is all a matter of perspective we realised last night. Fish Hoek Scribblers are suffering from a drought, showering only every three days and running into the streets, shouting ‘oh frabjous day’ when it rains. When I arrived back in the UK two weeks ago everyone was saying, ‘Aren’t you lucky you missed the snow? But we have early summer sun next week!!’ Another man’s meat …Except I can’t cut my meat the way I can in Cape Town … that knife.
I was also back into my final Creative Ink Fitzwilliams term this week. I’m NOT retiring. Still available for my ‘Red Lipstick & Revelations’ readings, workshops, consultations and editing. And I’m busy writing a novel.

    “Busy writing a novel”. Does the plot involve that knife in SA that you covet so much?

    This is not the end.
    Not even the beginning of the end.
    But it may be the end of the beginning,
    especially with a novel coming along…..
