Of librarians and books

One of my favourite library bloggers has blogged about one of my favourite books and it's given me an idea. I could claim to have finished my novel but lost it. Tragically, only fragments are left...

(There's an in-joke here that only about two people in the world will get.)

Never mind the person from Porlock

Why haven't I prepared for the Cabbage Soup meeting tomorrow? I blame ASDA: the people who put the hassle into online shopping. I can't single out any one person to give the credit for this, it was a team effort at truly appalling customer non-service. I did get (most of) my delivery - eventually - but a trudge down the hill and back up again, heavily loaded with shopping, in the rain, would have been a more pleasant experience. So that's my excuse. Otherwise I would have finished writing my book by now.

The next meeting

We've had a bit of trouble finding a convenient time for the next Cabbage Soup meeting. It's probably going to be next Thursday lunchtime, and we're going to be discussing my novel. Oh dear...
