Gulp. My boss has bought “A Dangerous Man” (http://www.flamebooks.com) and I have signed it for him. From me and Michael. Double gulp. That should make for an interesting review this summer ... I did think about giving him a note of the pages to avoid as he’s a nice, straightforward man, but thought the list would be too long and confusing. Gulp. Again. But, hey, lovely that it’s another sale – I hope Flame are pleased with me. And the equally lovely Caroline from MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/caroline_biesse) has already started her copy and tells me that she’s really enjoying it, though is shocked by the number of rude words I know. Sorry, Caroline … I’m afraid it will probably get worse before it gets better. And thank you for letting me know it’s arrived!
I am taking it to the wire, work-wise, as I still haven’t sent out papers for Monday’s Steering Group but I’m waiting on a response about a report before we decide whether we have a meeting at all. And, being a part-timer, today is my last day of the week … Update: relief! They've cancelled it. Phew. Still, will have to do a report to email round, otherwise the members will forget I exist at all.
Reflexology at lunchtime, as no back exercise class this week, or at least none that I can make. So all my toxins are flowing nicely, thank you. And Emily (reflexologist) is keen to buy the book – hurrah! – so I’ve made a note to bring a copy to my next session – that is, if Flame have sent me the ones I ordered by then … Back at my desk, the lady who borrowed “A Stranger’s Table” (http://www.poetrymonthly.com) yesterday has now, sadly, returned it without the compulsion to buy. Groan. Still, at least she left me a note to say she’d enjoyed the poems. Buy them then, darn it, buy them – how difficult can it be??!!! Oh. Sorry. My normality head slipped a little there – but it’s safely in place once more, you’ll be relieved to hear. Lord, but I’m soooo borderline psychotic. Somebody book me a therapy session.
This afternoon I’ve done a VDU assessment for one of the Counselling staff, so have had to sound professional and competent. When in fact I know nothing and tend to slouch at my computer when no-one is looking like an old hippy. A drunk one. Oh, and I rushed around like the proverbial juggling meetings and agendas and minutes until my brain imploded. So no changes there then.
Tonight, I’m shopping and doing normal stuff. If I can manage it. Update: I managed it. Hurrah. And I forgot to say that Carol at work has bought a gorgeous silky pair of blue fluffy slippers, so I intend to go into town tomorrow to buy a pink pair. Never say I'm not cool ...
And, finally, one of my colleagues asked me if it's actually Lord H on the front cover of "A Dangerous Man" ... Of course not, I cry - Lord H is even more attractive, in every way! Naturally.
Today’s nice things:
1. My boss buying ADM
2. Caroline saying she was enjoying the book
