And please remember that the competition to win one of five copies of Breakfast at Giovanni's is still ongoing. (I’m sure nobody’s going to enter and I’m going to feel a complete Billy No Mates when I get back…)
I’ll be glad when we set off. I spent today tackling the ironing (think Everest plus K2 combined), then DH lost his mobile phone (sigh – he’s found it but apparently it’s been through the washing machine at work so… he needs a new one), Byron cried when DH carried him to the car because he knew he was going on holiday (a whole week sans my dog – this is not nice, and right now I'm pretty near to tears), the kids have been squabbling because we’ve had torrential rain all day and they haven’t been able to go out, and…
OK. Time for glass half-full stuff:
- my author copies of Disasters arrived, along with a note about my new book (which will be out in June 08, yippee);
- one of my lovely friends sent me an unexpected emergency bar of G&B and the post arrived just when the kids were driving me demented (thank you very, very, much – you know who you are *g*);
- Harry Potter is out tomorrow and I’m going to get my copy;
- and DH is getting a takeaway tonight so we can chill out with a glass of wine and a couple of episodes of Everybody Loves Raymond.
