spoiled

Current work: Medical and nonfic and a bit of piano and guitar
Listening to: various
Reading: Freya North, Pillow Talk (still enjoying – still spooking me, too, as the heroine’s favourite gemstone happens to be one of mine – I think Freya might be one of my 'spiritual twins' (and I have a few of those in author-land).)

Thank you to everyone who’s spoiled me today with flowers, chocolates, book tokens, gorgeous pampery things (especially the Burt’s Bees – new to me – and the Philosophy Crème Brûlée), films, wine, and Pandora-related stuff. But especially for the cards (how well my friends and family know me) and the texts/emails with good wishes for being o-l-d. :o)

And especially to DH for looking out of the window this morning, sighing, and telling me he’d do the school run so I don’t have another horrible trip down the icy hill.

I had planned to skive off today, go into town and have a day wandering round the cathedral and the castle - but not when it’s icy like this. Not worth it. So instead I’m going to mess about on the guitar and piano and lick the new book into better shape. And I’ll get enough steps in (despite not doing school run) because I will be walking to the dentist this afternoon (and hoping that the snow and ice will please go away, as dog and I are really fed up with it).

Oops! Looks like I forgot to drop in on the appropriate day.

Well, I think I may have wished you Happy Bunfight Day somewhat in advance, so it wasn't complete obliviousness on my part.

In my defence, I've been working VERY HARD INDEED (VHI) over the past few days and have at last finished my book. Yay!
