Thanks. She arrived today and she's just the sweetest thing. Very laidback. Thought the baby might be afraid of her (she can't stand our neighbors' little dog) but Emmy walks right up to her and barely strokes that soft fur, then runs off smiling and chattering.

I won't be able to post new pics for a while...no digital camera. But I'll see about posting some of the ones her breeder sent me.

Now to figure out her name...

My PC was fixed today! The engineer who turned up seemed a bit dubious but he fixed it relatively easily. It turned out to be a faulty power supply.

But I had to take a day off work to be at home for it. (I pay a coverplan for the PC but they can't do visits at evenings or weekends, which I think is really poor.) Anyway, not being at work meant that I was able to accompany Dad to his visit to his consultant, which was good. His biopsy samples were unhelpful (long explanation) so he will need a more invasive type of biopsy to get better samples - so we're back where we started in not knowing exactly what we're dealing with!

Woke up this morning dizzy (it happens every few years or so), so I had to go to the doctor. But a few minutes ago the UPS man came, and I was able to lurch to the front door to get my author's copies of The Traitor's Wife! (With a nice blurb from Michelle Moran on the back.) They're so pretty!

OHHH - congratulations (on the book, not the dizziness). I hope you feel better!

I get that, but a bit more regularly than every few years! Hope your feeling better today!

Yay on the book BTW!
A good book and a good coffee, what more can anyone want? xx

I got an unexpected invitation to an author event in the city tonight. I got to listen to Irish author Cathy Kelly speak. A very pleasant night out!
