A Few of The Latest Phosphor Errors

Whilst most people are in London for the biggest philatelic bash of the decade, or they are making their way there. Here I am stuck on the Costa Blanca (do not say, poor sod, what a place to be stuck in) giving it all a miss.

For a host of reasons I can not make it. I am concerned about Volcanic ash and flight problems, a torn calf muscle which is giving me loads of jip and affecting my mobility, and if I am honest the main one being a shortage of funds.

I also have a disabled wife to look after,who although could in all honesty get by for a few days without me does not want to get by without me or want me to go. Anyway to save arguments I have decided to slum it out here for the duration of the event ;-(

For those who are going, I am sorry I missed you all and I hope you meet up with old and new friends, pick up some bargains and have a great time.

Do I sound as though I am feeling sorry for myself? I do not mean to (anyone know of a good divorce lawyer? :-)

Still, not to worry, its only a stamp showI tell my self, I can surf the web and whist I am at it pick up some info on the latest phosphor errors. Yes misplacements are still turning up and are commanding some high catalogue prices.
