I've written a few small things for howies over the years. There is no formal arrangement. David will email every once in a while and say "Do you fancy writing something about summer/winter/trees/Hugo Chavez?" and I'll write something.
Anyway, I was having a look through We Made This (a fine blog full of interesting things) and found this. It's a post about something I wrote for the the recent howies summer catalogue (you can see it on the howies site here). It's about as true a memory of my mid-childhood as I could excavate. Thought I would share.
PS David has never asked me to write about Hugo Chavez. I'm waiting for the day.
