Today I will mostly be...

Sorting boxes of paperwork
Sorting piles of paperwork
Reading through piles of paperwork
Chasing unpaid invoices
Resending unpaid invoices
Chasing bookbuyers (not literally, but I'm sure the day will soon come)
Reorganising furniture
Putting shelves up
Arranging phone connections...

Oh what fun it is to set up a new office and have to be phoning and emailing people about issues you phoned and emailed before Christmas but they didn't action and now have no memory of said issues.

Still, it's not all bad. Tonto will have some more rights acquisitions to shout about in the next few weeks, all being well.

The soundtrack to all this:

Return of the Iron Monkey by Trio Valore - it helps to move quicker when yer diggin the jazz.

Fleet Foxes by Fleet Foxes - it helps to move slower when it's time to relax.

I've got a meeting with top events blokey, Simon at Borders Team Valley tomorrow to sort out some exclusive Tonto events in the coming weeks... watch this space.
