Except that poetry isn't a job, it's a way of living, and since there can be even less respite from that, I was off to Bradford-on-Avon to record a radio interview.
I met my interviewer, Dawn Gorman, in the Swan for a little prep.
A short distance away was the makeshift studio, which wasn't makeshift at all but a very kind person's spare room - a lovely, quiet, modern space.
And they tell me the interview went well. I have to say, it was much less nerve-wracking than the live radio interviews I've done.
The Poetry Place on West Wilts Radio will air on Sunday 23rd February at 4pm, and Tuesday 25th at 9pm. It will also feature poetry discussion from Dawn and Peter O'Grady.
I will say, however, that I'm made up, so much so that I've almost forgotten a seagull shat on me and the Northerner when we were in Filey.
