Books v Business (and free stuff)

Hooray! Book 2, The Road to Nerdvana launched last week and I’ve been in a daze ever since. Stunned that I managed to finish a second book, pleasantly surprised that people are buying it and delighted that people are responding to it positively.

Since Husband wasn’t feeling great after the flight, I had volunteered to drive the 20-minute journey from the airport to the hotel.

Binoculars are harder to come by than you would think….

I thought as part of the secret grown up club, every parent had a pair of binoculars. You know, stashed in that cupboard where they keep tins of nails and screws and a random assortment of plastic containers including the ‘sick bucket’ and the weird shaped basin you use to wash the windows. I was […]
