Auld acquaintance

I had an unexpected phone call this afternoon. It was Tania, the delightful Brazilian scientist who used to live downstairs in flat 1. It's about four years now since she moved out, and I didn't know whether she was still in Sheffield, so it was lovely to hear from her. She called because she's no longer working for the University, and apparently they sent her P45 to this address last autumn. Other departments at the Uni have her current address and send things there, but this rather important thing got sent to an address that was well out of date. Unfortunately, I don't remember seeing it, and it isn't still lingering in the hall downstairs, as I do clear out the junk and mail for departed tenants at intervals.

I reminded her that I'd asked if I could use her name for one of Miss Jenny's girls in a western, and she was pleased to hear that the book had been published. I told her the title ( Two-Gun Trouble ) so she can look for it in the library. All toghter, it was a lovely surprise to hear from her.


In other news: Diesel is curled up in front of the heater, with one paw wrapped over her nose, emitting dainty snores.
