Cool, sunny, layers needed. Morning to all, another autumnal week beckons (almost dark by the time I get home-boo indeed). Hope weekend hit the spot. Wrote a bit yesterday (actually most of the day, a tricky bit of explanation to do) and managed to got to the football with child 2. Hadn't managed it for a while but everything was lovely and goals were cheered, victory over Norwich secured. Only sour taste was the gums which cost me £2.30 and then had the nerve to have no green ones and no black ones, the only ones I like. Calamity. Football is expensive enough without paying for the wrong sort of wine gums. Child 2's party progressed well, even if albums were played at 45 and no one noticed. Ho hum.
Top week coming up and the book club offers you More Than This by Patrick Ness. It is my favourite this year and IMHO, a masterpiece. The stunning opening chapter is on these pages and here Patrick from 6. But here's the thing. You don't need to know anything about it, just read it. Reviews might spoil it. So we discuss the price of cabbages instead. I've been a fan of Patrick's since the extraordinary Knife of Never Letting Go so been looking forward to this for a while. Hope you enjoy.
And we'll do PLASTIC BAG oldies please, as charges in England are announced for big shops but not small ones. I always forget the cloth bag bought for just this purpose so this is for me I think. Some plastic pop needed!
Have a well-heeled and respectable Monday, see you after 5

    What happened? I missed a page, I blame Jocko!

    Hope your jaunt is a good or 'routine' one, Jilly.

    Jennie, have fun with your dad, that's what dads are for, at any age!

    Right, if I can find my way through this red mist I'm off to bed this time.

    Night night.

    Me x

    Jocko juice imbibed so be warned!

    The peace and relaxation and fuzzy feeling of yesterday has been shattered by the pick axe of stress that I know and tolerate. I could eff and Jeff for Britain at the moment, on all sorts of levels so I don't think good sleep is on the cards, even with a good bottle down me. Not a lot has gone right, or even the way expected, today. I feel like screaming and throwing and smashing. I won't, of course, I never do. I just moan incessantly.

    Bed before my head explodes.

    SYITM.

    Hello m'dears.

    Not the best night for blog menshes and I missed the few apart from Mandy's - well done anyway.

    Enjoyed Patrick Ness and love Simon's enthusiasm for the book. I've started it and am well and truly hooked.

    Zoe, some recollection - I hope you somehow find the time to read the book.

    Hamlin - willing volunteer at your command your Majesty! ;)

    Enjoy your Dad's visit, Jennie - come back soon.

    I won't be around to choon choose in the morning either unless it is early and I am very organised - it ain't gonna happen, folks!

    A little jaunt to the hospital first thing, so I'll catch up later in the day when I can.

    Night night x

    Jennie, I love pickled onions and Christmas too so I'm sure I would have heard a 3 worder from you.

    Had to poop back on blog to wish Sal a happy holiday in Inverness (Amelia country). Was there 4 years ago for a conference Sal, and had a wee night out with colleagues in a few of the local inns. Friendly warm folks..............I even nearly pulled with a man in his eighties!!

    Too much info for a Monday night ;0) Hee hee!

    Sleep tight my lovlies (Jilly quote) X
