Marking a big family milestone
Back earlier today from Little Rissington, where even the Volvo had trouble making it up the snowy slope to Hill House, where Elaine, Gaia, Hania and I had gone to celebrate my father Tim’s 90th birthday.
I began to show him the project we have been working on for a couple of months, an 80-page book created through Blurb and featuring the memories of his family, friends and colleagues over the decades. The title: TIM ELKINGTON: Super Man at 90–A Kaleidoscopic Portrait by Family & Friends. What a privilege, in so many ways, to be able to mark such a milestone.
On the way back through Oxford, we stopped in for a quick glass of Prosecco with Simon Beaufoy, who Gaia has been working with. (he has also been helping them with their writing projects.) Wonderful stopover. And now the holiday begins–and tomorrow I start writing my new book, hopefully. More anon.
