My treat was going to be a weekend in Nottingham for the Black Library weekender in November.
I have had to cancel the plans; not for lack of funds, being a long way ahead even on my low income I could easily have started a savings plan and as I am used to going without if I need to save for something, the task would have been easy.
The reason for the cancellation is that I woke this morning and could hardly move my left arm. We are in June and it is a lovely warm day, yet I am in so much pain I can hardly type; what would it be like in a damp November?
I realised that taking the chance my arm would be good was too much of a gamble with over $500 on the line; the one chance I had of going has now passed, another legacy of my accident.
I can always get another treat for my birthday, it would have been nice to have met some of my favourite authors; especially as the part of my dream which was based on getting an on line story in their book http://www.blacklibrary.com/Warhammer/the-best-of-hammer-and-bolter-vol-two.html is no longer even a remote possibility.
