busy busy

Posting's been slack here. I thought I had a clear run at a lazy week, but I got unexpected work on Wednesday and Friday, went gallivanting about the country on Thursday, visited my partner's parents Saturday and went dog-walking and toddle-wrangling today, and tomorrow I'm off up North for five more days of porta-cabin fun courtesy of the on-again employer. Curses.

I got back this evening to an acceptance email from the Battered Suitcase - very pleased about that, so I'm going to eat some cake in a minute. I also read Natalie Babbitt's Tuck Everlasting over the weekend - it's brilliant, I adore it, it's perfectly constructed, and I'd love to chill with those characters. I'm sure you've read it already but if not, do! It's dead short, anyway, a total quickie. And now I'm in the middle of Caroline Smailes' In Search of Adam - misery central! What a voice she's got going on there - I'm impressed and jealous.

Yesterday we went on a day trip to the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford - my saints, that place is fantastic. You could wander around for years peering at all sorts of oddities and curiosities. They've got shrunken heads. SHRUNKEN HEADS, PEOPLE! Saturdays don't get much better.

I'm wiped out.
