A is for antiques and afternoon television. I love browsing around antique shops, junk shops, car boot sales and flea markets. If you watched Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is yesterday (BBC2 5.15 -6pm) you may have caught a glimpse of my red coat as I wandered around the Giant antique and Collector’s Fair at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern. Yesterday, in an effort to procrastinate enjoyably, I watched Bargain Hunt, Flog It!, the aforementioned Put Your Money… and finished off with The Antiques Roadshow. By the end of that lot I was all antiqued out and hadn’t written a word of the new book I have a contract for. At this rate I shall be an antique before it’s finished.
A is also for April and I’ve joined Frances Garrood in the A-Z challenge, in the hope that it will make me write something, apart from regular columns.
