With the best of intentions I have not been able to keep up the rate that would see me finish the first draft of Me ‘n’ Pete: Recalling a Fifties Childhood by July. Another (necessary) writing task has intervened to distract me. It will be a couple of months before I can get back to Me ‘n’ Pete. I hope to have the first draft finished by the end of the year. The later chapters (1954 onwards) are requiring a lot more research than I anticipated.
Duncan McLaren’s third amusing excursion with Evelyn Waugh is now on Duncan’s website HERE. This time it’s to Waugh’s champagne party in his room at the Hyde Park Hotel, Tuesday 6 August 1946 – a couple of weeks after I was born.
Just received Duncan’s McLaren’s latest invitation. This is for the informed lover of Evelyn Waugh, his group of friends and the influence they exerted on his novels. Join Evelyn for ten days with the Sitwells at their fabulous Renishaw Hall, Derbyshire.

I have been away on holidays on Queensland’s Gold Coast these last two weeks, which brought a stop to updating my website. I am back home now and working to finish it. While away I succeeded in finishing my chapter on the Coronation on the 2nd of June 1953, and the royal visit in February 1954. People born after 1970 would have no idea how big these events were for Australians at the time.
It’s taking a little time but I am continuing to add information about my books already published.
My website is undergoing rebuilding. Information about my books will appear shortly
