I found my book on amazon.com today! Amazing - made it feel like it's actually really going to be published one day!! Woohoo! I love the cover - it's one that will be easy to find on the bookshelf! - and the painting by Michel Tuffery is just amazing. I'm a very lucky girl. It's due out May 2012 - and when I posted it on facebook I got a lot of really lovely supportive responses. Feels good :)
In other news, I have to brag about the CLEVERNESS of my honours students this year - all three of my honours research essay students did very well - I am very proud of them!!!!
I'm going to see megan and Matiu in less than a month! 20th December! Woohoo!!
This afternoon I went on a lovely long walk with my friend Sarah - we walked to the supermarket (usually it's 2 subway stops away but we thought we'd take advantage of the relatively warm weather and we both needed to stretch our legs) and she took me to a great independent cafe with very yummy gingerbread lattes and apple loaf... mmmmm...
And finally, my Dad emailed me a hilarious response to Chris's joke on facebook which I had in my blog yesterday... I thought I'd share it with you tonite (think about it - it's funny when you get it):
