... to all you folks in the UK and Canada! Unlike most I'm avoiding the Boxing Day sales and will venture out to them in the next few days when I'm less likely to be mauled by an over-perfumed boxing day sales shark reaching for the last 'whatever' it will be that I too am inevitably reaching for.
No thank you.
So yes, I'm at home and I'm working today. I've had two weeks off and they've been great if not a little frustrating sometimes. I had a very Merry Christmas though. Mum and I swapped very similar shaped boxes yesterday only to reveal that we had each bought one another the same gift. Best Gift Ever! Harry Potter adult edition paperback boxset.
Great minds think alike ;-)
So that was funny. As was the too big, slightly deformed dressing gown I bought my dad that was surely made by someone who knows a giant with one arm twice as long as the other.
It was a lovely day though and made even lovelier this morning to discover a lot of you spent your Christmas pennies on my books! Best sales EVER yesterday and today is looking just as good, you gorgeous people you! In particular, Smokeless Fire is doing a happy dance... it's enjoying the highest rank I've ever achieved on amazon... so thank you! A very Merry Christmas to me :-p
OK... so I'm off to work (this will include dashing back and forth to the huge tin of Cadbury's Roses I have under the tree... hoping that the distance will keep me from them... It won't). Here's to Santa taking a much needed break; to writing; to putting on twenty pounds in the next week, and to all the people in our lives who'll love us anyway!!!
Happy Holidays all!
