Rain, rain go away...

I am officially quite weary today. I don’t know whether it’s my age (possible), the weather (probable) or the fact that I get up these days at 6am when I used to always laze in bed till 8am (almost certainly this) but by the end of each week I do tend to feel – and look – shattered. I also slept in a bit which didn’t help.

Good news was that my lost lens popped out while I was at the wine bar with a friend on Wednesday night – so it had been lodging in my eye for the best part of four days. Other good news – some lovely comments and emails about the new book, including a place in the Heat magazine chart, which has given my amazon rating a nudge up in the hundreds.

Bad news is the speed – or lack of speed – of the latest house purchase attempt. Oh and the fact that I can’t seem to stop eating, due to the cold and the stress. I dream of a time free from estate agents’ blather and lawyers’ refusal to commit themselves either way. It will happen, won’t it?

Lovely Link of the Day:
Laurie Graham is a favourite writer of mine and I really enjoyed her rather swanky site, especially reading about the ideas behind some of her books (she seems to use real lives as a springboard to fiction). As well as envying her Venice lifestyle…
