News from around the world
A helicopter crashed in Mexico killing at least 14 including a baby, two senior officials who were on board were unharmed. The pilot lost control as it was coming into land. They had been up assessing the damage from the earthquake which occurred on Friday. The military helicopter is said to have crashed on top of several vans carrying earthquake survivors.
This is heart-rending, to live through the earthquake and be killed by the team sent out to assess the damage beggars belief.
News from London
Ride-by moped thefts on London’s main shopping streets have increased six-fold over the last two years. Oxford Street is the worst hit with 291 offences in a year.
These moped thieves aren’t just resorting to bag snatching and the like but any biker in the London area will tell you that bike theft is now off the scale. At least three people I know have had their bikes stolen in the last couple of years. The ped scum are going out tooled up so they can deal with disgruntled bike owners trying to protect their property.
Another busy working week which has kept me extremely busy and terribly tired at the end of the day. This weekend I planned on finishing decorating my living room but was disrupted today when I had to take my motorbike to the garage to get my front brake fixed. I managed to squeeze in a visit to my lovely Mum and Dad and saw my brother too which is always a pleasure. I have managed to get on with some wallpapering but don’t think I’ll finish it this weekend.
Another quiet writing week but have managed to work through a little bit more of Illicit Love and I’m quite excited about where it’s going. I’m also doing my last read through of Sins of the Father before it goes to the editor.

I hadn’t even heard of the Mexican helicopter crash as the news was full of the Grand Canyon crash – also a tragedy of course, but very different beause the victims chose to go on an adventure abroad, but the poor Mexicans were the victims of two events beyond their control.
