Sophisticated. That’s what we are. Breakfast this morning in Cheltenham, which is a sophisticated kind of place. But it wasn’t an ordinary breakfast. It was with Mark Watson, Evie Wyld and Roddie Doyle, in a glittery Spiegeltent. And they were talking about writing. Which is always interesting. This plus a little light shopping which you HAVE to do in Cheltenham, cheered me up no end.
Cos it’s been a bit sad lately. Dark mornings, dark evenings, strangely quiet house. And last night we went to see Sunshine on Leith, which is good fun and stars Edinburgh, which just looks fabulous. And there were lots of 20 somethings enjoying their lives, which set me off thinking sad things about Rosie. Which was a stupid place and time to do that. But I suppose you never know where and when it is going to creep up on you.
A aargh. The TKOE dog just jumped on me at speed with muddy paws. I am filthy, the laptop has mud splattered on the screen, the cushion has streaks of gloop. Why do we even have a dog? How do we even have one?
anyway, where was I – so yes, last night was sad, but today it’s okay again.
Now, TKOE needs your help. Rosie’s friend Corrine has designed our 2013 Christmas tea towel and we can’t decide which one to get her to develop. So, do you like the kettle, the mixer or the pot?
