Current work: (day off)
Listening to: (not, am sleeping)
Reading: (not, am sleeping, but I have a fab TBR pile)
Just about managed to see in the new year with DH last night: I was feeling rubbish and he was on call anyway, so we stayed in. (Not that we've done NY parties for years. Would rather have a dinner party with decent music and good company. Clearly am middle-aged.) Cuddled up on the sofa with the kids and saw a couple of films (can't remember the name of the first one - Rhys Witherspoon was v good in it, though - a woman whose spirit haunted her apartment and then of course she fell in love with the new tenant; second was Meet the Fokkers - am not that keen on humiliation-type humour, but Dustin Hoffman was very good); watched the programme about great movie love scenes, and then switched over to hear Big Ben and see the fabulous fireworks.
This morning, I’ve succumbed to the lurgy. Hot forehead + sore throat + thumping headache + ice-cold hands + sleeping all morning = lurgy. (Not hangover. Didn’t even have a sip of wine last night because of sore throat!) Ah well. I’m happy because it’s not 2008 any more and this year is going to be MUCH nicer.
I was given this wonderful personalised calendar for Christmas, so think here is a nice place to post the pic for January:
I’m also happy because I have two books out this month. For Medicals, out in the UK, US and Australia/New Zealand, there is The Greek Doctor’s New Year Baby – the first in my London Victoria duo, about two cousins. (The second is out in the UK in March and the US in Feb – Katrina’s story, i.e. the deaf doctor, so I will have much to say on that subject on release day.)
For Presents, in the US, there’s Hotly Bedded, Conveniently Wedded – and, if you’re into ebooks, you’re in for a treat because this has an enhanced edition. I got mine yesterday and played with it: the links are fantastic, and they’ve even managed to link to the lyrics of the wedding song. Fabulous.
Righty. I’m going back to bed now. But happy new year!
