17th October - Completely forgot to say Grenville Garrison + CS Princess now at printers and will be delivered 4 November. New catalogue now prepared and just need to check over weekend. FOCS + Parish mag at printers. Feel exhausted and have Concert tonight, Diosesan Synod (church equivalent of county council) tomorrow and need to do something about sermon.

8th October - I can now say that Mary Cadogan’s funeral will be held at Beckenham Crematorium Elmers End Road, Beckenham, Kent, BR3 4TD on Friday 24 October at 12:45 pm and afterwards at Langley Park Golf Club, Barnfield Wood Road Beckenham, Kent, BR3 6SZ. I shall be going.

6th October - Have just added Champion of the Chalet School to the Forthcoming Books page ... No news yet of Mary Cadogan's funeral and it now transpires her correct date of death was Saturday 27th September. I have had v busy week, and a lot to do at my desk this morning but Ann is happy to report she is up to date with all orders, and those rec'd this morning will be posted today.

29th September - I have just heard the news that Mary Cadogan died on Friday. She had cancer of the liver but also heart problems and this is what she died from. I went two weeks ago (I am her literary executor) and she was not very well but I never thought she would die so quickly, feel very shocked. RIP.

29th September - sorry, have had too many funerals. I have just now updated the All Books Ever Published page, to include the 2009 titles. I am getting there!
