I'm trying to race ahead with Crone as my husband wants to get it printed next week. Monday and tuesday are his last days at HSBC and his last chance to print it. The situation with photocopyng at the Home Office is up in the air. He reckons it'll be fine; I'd rather not risk it for a while because, ya know, the Home Office. But I did go to a photocopiers in Machynllyth. I didn't really get the full details: there was a police officer in there, interviewing the shop owner about some crime or other, so I didn't want to bother him. But I think it looks as if it will be the same price to print 100 copies as 50! And he does do both sides. I'll ring him to confirm, but something the size that I hope Crone #1 will be (if it gets finished) will be £25.
However, i have been wracked with dilemas. Should I go ahead with my idea of having it at A5 size, or should I go with A6 (quarter size) as I love the dinky. Decisions, decisions. It hasn't helped that my printer is a beatch. It's a Lexmark: never get a Lexmark, they are more trouble than they are worth and the cartridges are expensive. I wanted to print some copies of Victorian/Edwardian photographs (I collect them) to make my own background paper. It wouldn't print on inkjet paper, so I got my daughter to get me some photo paper when she was in town. I tried three times to print it and it wouldn't bite. Until finally, for no other reason that I can see, except maybe four time's the charm: it worked!
I got 10 copies of it photocopied this morning. So, I now don't know whether to go with cut-and-paste, or with a layout in word. Argh!!!! This is more than mortal woman can take! I'll just go and stick my head in a paper bag, shall I?
So that's where I am today. And I'd better get on and decide as time is flying like a whatsit. Remind me someone, this is fun, right? Yeeeess.
