the wonders of chocolate…

Current work: Med duo 2/nonfiction
Listening to: Karine Polwart
Reading: about to pick something from my TBR shelf

It’s school holidays, which means I can’t really do that much work during the day. Son is fine because he’s studying Aardman films and has his nose in an animation book (not to mention plasticine models appearing all over the house). Daughter isn’t quite so self-contained, as she’s younger, bless her. So yesterday she wheedled me into doing some baking after the weekly shop arrived. We made cakes.
She did the brownies all by herself (I helped crack the first egg, and put the tin in the oven/removed it) and they were very scrummy…

Other than that, some Dutch translations arrived yesterday – ‘Espresso en amore’ (aka Giovanni). Sophisticated cover (though he doesn’t look Italian. I think I need Antonio Banderas as a cover model...). Also had highly gratifying phone call from local BBC radio station saying they loved my latest romance and they want me in again soon for a chat. Weeks like this, I really feel I’m getting somewhere.

Kate, I adore this cover! I expect Antonio was too busy.

How cool that your son is into the Aardman animation. I LOVE the Wallace and Gromit films!

Thanks, Jan - I love the cover, too.

Melissa - I have models all over the house! He loves the W&G films.
