I had NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO intention of blogging today but something happened this morning to make me a little excited and prompted me to say oh, to heck with it and write one anyway … just so I could share!
There I was, Marigold’s on me hands, suds up me arms, slippery plate in me fingers, when I hear’s the squeak of me letterbox and the thud of something right weighty landing on me hall floor.
I should have waited until I’d finished the washing up to go check.
However, self-containment has never been one of me strong points.
So I whizzed into the hall. Almost collided with Mr B’s mountain bike, as well as almost got speared by the handlebars. And spotted the package.
With my name on it.
Shocking, I know.
After I’d stared at it for 0.0000004 seconds, I snatched it up and started to peel away the tape before I’d even got to the living room. By the time I returned to the kitchen table, I pretty much knew exactly what it was.
Was it something I needed?
Goodness, no! Where’s the fun in those kinds of parcels?
It was something I WANTED, dammit! Something I had made rather a lot of noise about wanting to a certain someone.
It appears my (extremely unsubtle) hints paid off because it was that certain someone who sent it to me … as only SHE could.
Yep, that’s right. After whining and jigging and griping, I have my VERY OWN PERSONALLY SIGNED PAPERBACK COPY OF LITTLE WHITE LIES BY AIMEE LAINE!
And here’s the pics (rubbish ones taken using my BB) to prove it:
Um … yeah … do me a favour and only look at the book on that pic, coz otherwise you’ll see the corner of my Jem & Sean novella I’m currently writing, and I’m pretty certain I shouldn’t be letting you see that yet (sssshhhhhhhhhhhh!).
MASSIVE thanks to Aimee! Mwah!
So … whatcha think? Hehehehe.
What little parcels of goodness have you received in the mail lately?
