I can't believe how long it's been since I made an entry on the blog! I think I'm justified in saying that the Watford Observer fortnightly local history and nostalgia articles have been - and are - keeping me busy. I enjoy the freedom to be able write about people, places and events in Watford, Bushey and Oxhey; sometimes long past, sometimes within living memory. The book, to be entitled Two Lives, Two World Wars, has been running in parallel with the articles and its pace has been affected, but I will get there. If something is worth doing, it's worth doing well, as my father used to say.
