Hola! I'm back from Spain; I'm thirty-two (?!); I've been tossing the baby into a swimming pool (honestly, she likes it) and reading lots of books and doing some writing, and trying really, really hard (failing) not to scratch my mosquito bites. Now, post-holiday, it's all action around here. Tomorrow I'll be interviewing writer Kerry Hudson on this very blog, and on Friday or Saturday we're heading en famille to London for a Marxism festival (no, really), and THEN, oh God, the following Thursday, me and Andy and Seren will be packing up the mouldy tent because we're off to Latitude, where I'll be covering the Literary Arena for Bookmunch! I'm giddy about this one. Anyway - come back tomorrow to read Kerry's interview. It'll be ace.
