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.
