New week, and please let it be better than last

Current work: nonfic; MH duo book 2
Listening to: various piano stuff
Reading: Mistress of the Art of Death, Arianna Franklin (just finished it – superb and this series is going to be autobuy – loved the characters, and particularly enjoyed the historical note)

Thank you to everyone who’s left a note here or emailed me privately about the catalogue of disasters. Appreciated.

Had a nice weekend – spent Saturday with DH’s best friend (barbecue in the rain) and yesterday with bestest family (another barbecue, plus Madam and I made the infamous choc chip cookies. Kleptodog stuck with me as the Person Most Likely To Feed Dog Surreptitious Bits Of Chicken – well, he must be missing his usual weekday lunch with me, which involves him getting surreptitious bits of chicken). Was nice just to try and forget all the other stuff and chill out a bit. Plus one of my friends sent me a replacement chocolate stash, which was very much appreciated. (Dog grabbed the parcel as it came through the letter-box and brought it over to me, bless him.)

There’s a chance to win a copy of The Spanish Doctor’s Love Child this week over at Love is the Best Medicine, so do drop over and talk to me about the lure of the Mediterranean. (Guess who I’m talking about?) I’m also talking about heroes in a couple of other places later this week – will post the links when they’re up.

Plan for today: errands in the morning, maybe some shots for the book (depends on the weather), then going to visit Dad. And I want to stick to my work schedule, which is sensible and doable and will keep me sane.

Kleptodog brought the parcel to you? Wow. Any parcel containing chocolate would have been gone if either of my dogs had got near it.

Glad you had a good weekend, hon.

You don't think the Kleptodog had an ulterior motive?

Glad the weekend was cheering. As for the rain ... arghhhh!
