Hello my lovelies,
In case you missed my mentions of it, my best friend died unexpectedly three weeks ago. Her name was Kate Harding and she was one of the most talented, gentle and amazing people I have had the privilege to know and love. I have never experienced such an intense grief.
Three weeks before Kate died, my Mum was diagnosed with cancer. It’s treatable and her chemo is underway, but let’s just say that times are tough in this little household.
I haven’t been able to record a new Tea and Jeopardy as a result, so a couple of days ago Peter and I released a video to our patrons along with an apology. Now they’ve had a chance to enjoy it, I’d like to offer it to you here to enjoy in lieu of a new podcast.
This was recorded in September, at Fantasycon in York. Apologies for the poor sound quality; you may well have to turn up the speakers as our teeny tiny camcorder thingy had to be positioned in the aisle among the audience so it picks up all the background noise too. Many thanks to the lovely Toby Whithouse who came into the tea lair and survived the silliness and mild peril with grace and good humour.
I hope you enjoy it. I don’t know when I’ll be able to record the next episode, but it will be as soon as I am able. Much love to you all.
