Day at Kew

A day out for Lord H and me at Kew. Beautiful weather for it. But, my goodness, it's larger than I thought - we must have walked miles and my feet are throbbing. Particularly enjoyed the rose garden and also the Japanese garden - I love those; they always make me feel so peaceful and together. Must be something to do with the rocks and lines of gravel. I could sit and gaze at it for a lifetime. There was also a stunning display of garden photography to admire.

Watched Part One of the "Dr Who" finale on TV tonight - great stuff! Not only cybermen, but daleks too - what more could you ask for? Am already looking forward to Part Two next week.

Also carried on my read-through of "Thorn in the Flesh" - am about halfway through now, and making a few last minute changes. Isn't that always the case? Was somewhat floored by a very negative critique of "A Dangerous Man" on the You Write On ( site. It seemed highly unfair. Still, it's only one opinion and my publishers, Flame Books ( obviously like it. Doesn't stop the reviewer's opinion hurting like hell though. Damn it.

It's just an unfortunate fact of life that you can't please all of the people... I'm sure your work pleases a whole of folks, though, and that's what's important, isn't it?
