Congrats to Nathalie, Ken -- that is great!! It's a booming area, and not just in publishing, so I imagine that she has a fab career ahead of her.

I was having a massage today (good, but not the best thing) when I found out that there is a new Borders that has opened about half an hour away from my house! I am thinking that I might have to take a trip tomorrow to spend the vouchers that I got for my birthday!

Must say, I think the massage would do it for me!!! Massage and book vouchers??? Wow. Could we swap lives, please?

Sure. You just need to make sure that today you also do all the washing, the dishes, clean the fridge out and stand around watching some people you don't know play Aussie Rules football in 10C temperatures. Dinner's already cooked though! :)

My daughter left today with her grandparents for the beginning of their odyssey in Wales! They fly out of Portland, Oregon tomorrow morning and arrive in Manchester at 9 am on Tuesday. I threatened to fold myself really small to fit in her suitcase, but she ended up packing the smallest one we had because she wanted to travel light :)

One of my favourite guilty-pleasure 80s acts - The Nolans - are re-forming for a comeback tour later this year, 27 years after their last hit. Immediately I saw the news, I booked tickets and my friend Amanda is coming with me and is looking forward to it too!
