yeehah moment

Current work: Modern Heat (need to get some done today)
Listening to: Corelli (yup, not in good mood)
Reading: Crazy for You, Jennifer Crusie (enjoying so far)

Kids really enjoyed Night at the Museum 2 yesterday. Good SFX and Hank Azariah was hilarious as Kahmunrah – Mr Evil who’s camp and has a lisp. Steve Coogan was excellent, too. Sure, the plot’s a bit thin, but suspend the disbelief and it’s good entertainment.

Also had lunch out; signed a few books as we happened to be near Jarrold’s; and opened son’s first current account (he’s currently feeling VERY grown up).

Spent the evening watching BGT with daughter. Not the best show (some of it was plain awful) but she wanted to see it and have a cuddle, bless.

This morning, I toddled over to Romantic Times to see if the July reviews were up. (Yes, I know. Never, ever read reviews when you’re not feeling at the top of your bounce, because it’s harder to ignore less-than-positive comments. Stupid, stupid. But I’m not a subscriber, so I can only see the rating. And mine said 4.5. Just out of curiosity – not out of expectation, because I haven’t had one yet – I did a search on top picks… and my name came up. Once I find out for sure that I’m not deluding myself, I will be doing a happy dance about it.)

(Hmm. That came across as a bit whiny. Sorry. Crows in evidence this morning, probably because I haven’t done as much as I would’ve liked so far this week.)

Edit: have removed the word 'potential'. (Thanks to my lovely fellow Modern Heat author Heidi Rice for filling me in.)

The key phrase: "Every aspect is spot-on, from thesmoking-hot pair to the sensual step-by-step buildup as attraction turns to love."

Colour me happy.

Yes. Crows are evil. They ***t on my parade most days :-( but YOU shouldn't be troubled by such things! Please could you do a blog on ways to kill them(following your next much anticipated craft post)? Love Gillie x

Donna, I'm just so thrilled.

But half term is a week of not getting anything done...

Kate Hardy said...

Thanks, Julie :o) Hope your own crows are behaving.

Kate Hardy said...

Carol - thanks - and isn't it just? :o)

Kate Hardy said...

Gillie, big hugs - and think of all the articles you've had published (a cuttings file is good crow-scaring material).

Yup, I'll do a post on crow-scaring...
