It started off okay, then the Jacket Proofs for Dark Designs arrived... Now, I 've been looking forward to their arrival. The new Black Lace cover designs have been rather lovely, but to say I'm not fond of what I've ended up with is putting it mildly. Okay, my name is HUGE, and the colour is okay, as is the bloke. But the view up the woman's nose and the bad, bad hair, just don't do it for me... sigh... Let me know what you think, the image is below.
Disaster number 2 occurred when I took the kids to the park. In their infinite wisdom the local council have installed a beautiful fake castle flower bed that my 2 year old daughter decided would make an excellent playhouse, especially as it came complete with an obvious entrance. I think you can imagine the scenario, me charging after her before she disappeared under the planted roof, only to find myself a foot deep in mud and then flat out on my arse with her on top of me equally muddy. Yeah, figured you'd get the picture.
Which brings us to incident number 3. We put same child to bed as normal, but 10 minutes later when I go up to check on her, she's stark bollock naked, having removed her pajamas and nappy, and has christened the carpet, stood in it, and then put on my new boots
Amazingly, I actually managed to do some work on both the novel and seckrit project after all this. So, I guess the day didn't go so badly.
