It's good news week


Someone in our office is having their novel published. That's very exciting. He's very excited. I would be too. It sounds really good, but I've not read it so I couldn't say yet, but what a great feeling that must be, to have toiled away on something, never sure if it's utter tosh or a work of high art and then someone actually wants to publish it. It makes it all worth while.

And someone else is pregnant and someone else has announced their engagement.

So let's not dwell on the credit crunch, let's hear only good news. Do I sound like a poor man's Martin Lewis (the former newsreader, not TV's hyperactive financial whizz who I'm sure is hiding a dark secret).

Tell me something good.

Where do I start - had a brill' week in Yorkshire last week.

Had an email from one of Adam's ex Ant's asking do I know an ex Damned member (I do and in fact bumped into him in T K Maxx on Saturday - rock 'n' roll!!!) as Courtney from the Dandy Warhols wants to make contact with him..so put them in touch. A bit of head-spinner for me, considering I'd been a mad Damned and Ants fan as teen/twentysomething

The best man at our wedding, (who was instrumental Mrs PM and I getting together)had been having a bit of banter with one of our facebook chums - they'd never met in 'real life' but seemed to connect over the net. They hooked up round ours a few weeks back clicked as quickly as camera and have been inseperable ever since (apart from the 200 hundred miles between them) News just in. He's relocating back to Southend this summer to move in together..

Oh and I've got a watch which predicts tide times - great when you live beside the seaside.

*faints from the giddy joy of it all*

PS I've also cut down on the booze, but discovered the joys of Gin. And started swimming again - which I'd forgotten how much I loved, and have gone mad for the Jacuzzi and steam room too.

I'll shut up now..

It's like Tigger just bounded into the room.

I love the cat pic - I assume that refers to Martin Lewis too?

Erm, well we were worrying about Bentley, our second eldest Basset, because despite good eating, lavvy and exercise habits he was losing a lot of weight, but a blood test has cleared him of anything dangerous. We've merely had to change his food. So that's good news, not to mention a relief.

Given that the sun is shining and I'm on a break from work prior to three solid weeks of 3am-ers, that's good news too. So I've had a go!

This week's being a bit of a trial - I think I peaked too soon with seeing Sylar off Heroes in the flesh on Monday.

But today is my half-birthday (not that I mark it, but I generally notice when it comes around) and I have used this as an excuse to buy some really nice ginger cake from Kastner & Ovens. Also, your kitten picture has inspired me to look at more pictures of kittens.

I'm entering heavy flirting mode with two women at work, and ignoring the piece of advice I was once given and to which, so far, I've stuck to: "Never poke the payroll."

I've just been on a set visit to Springwatch. Not only did I talk about The Murder Game with Kate Humble, but they laid on deviled (sp?) eggs at lunch.

A Kitten in a Brandy Glass said...

Ooh, devilled eggs. I must ask, were they the kind where the yolky bit has been put back in with a piping bag so it makes little flower shapes?

I think FC should hold a 1970s dinner party and invite us all. Avocado vinagrette, prawn cocktails, and Primula cheese piped onto Ritz crackers...

And Demis Roussos on the record player.

Let's do it. But Kitten, if you're not in a floor length ethnic print cheesecloth maxi dress, you can all go home, and my chicken Majorca will forever remain a mystery.

I went to the Kuniyoshi exhibition at the Royal Academy yesterday and spent over three hours there, having a whale of a time (I love going to exhibitions on my own - you can go at your own pace and you don't have to worry about saying insightful, intelligent things).
