Southern Universities' Course: Finance

A day in London at the Southern Universities' Course and today's topic was Finance. Not my best subject, but somehow I muddled through. Rang Lord H during the morning break to say I was still standing - just. The presenter was actually quite nice - informal and relaxed, plus a good sense of humour (always vital in Accountants!). And, wonder of wonders, we finished at 3pm so could get home early. Hurrah!

A brief nap before Lord H got back from work, and also caught up with my emails. It looks like Goldenford (http://www.goldenford.co.uk) are just getting to the point of being ready to send off "Pink Champagne and Apple Juice" to the printers. All we have to do is style the end pages showing our next novels and we're there. Am beginning to get more excited about it now.

Tonight is the second of the two-part "Dalziel and Pascoe" - I thought it was very good last night, so am looking forward to the conclusion. It seems to have been trashed in the TV press - can't imagine why.

Have just finished Annie Proulx's "Bad Dirt" - a new collection of short stories. They were okay, with one or two that were verging on good, but nothing to get excited about.
