The lovely Nik Perring has included an interview featuring Sally Nicholls and me on his blog dated 6 March. It's a nice author/mad author mix for sure - no prizes for guessing which way round Sally and I are! Many thanks, Nik, for asking the questions.
Am feeling a little better today, thank goodness (and thanks also for the good wishes - much appreciated), though still a bit low. Have taken a De-stress pill (just the one - honest!) so am hoping that will see me through for a while. I could probably do with another nap, but unfortunately I don't have the time. Dammit.
This morning, Marian and I played golf. I was good off the tee, but crap round the green. I only just won - by the skin of my teeth. Probably literally. Mind you, no doubt I am my own worst enemy - I suggested that Marian try out my tee wood (which is, I swear it, my greatest friend) and it improved her game no end. I had to keep a close eye on her to make sure she gave it back at all! I can see that my equipment advantage is lost forever, curses and gnashing of teeth ...
This afternoon, I should have gone shopping in Godalming and running around trying to get everything bought for Easter etc, but to be frank I'm not up to dealing with any more people than I've had to deal with this week, so I wimped out and stayed indoors. It'll mean I'll have to go out and do quasi-socialising and scary Saturday shopping tomorrow, but I'll cross that bridge etc etc ... For today, I just sat quietly and got on with the read-through of The Gifting and I'm now on Part 3, page 310. I think I'll stop it there as I'm not taking any more in.
Tonight, I'm up in London seeing Jane W, which will be great - but I'm hoping I'm not too late back. I'm exhausted already. Lord H will also be up in London looking at art for his OU course, so we're planning on meeting up on the train home. That'll be nice.
Today's nice things:
1. Nik's interview
3. The read-through.
