Sort of a restful weekend was had chez nous. There was a family birthday celebratory meal (cooked by me) for MWNN, totkat and I are all October births. I came home from France to awaiting birthday cards and the books MWNN had bought before we went away. Then the daughter arrived on Saturday afternoon, with the new fella and some more books. Nicely stocked up for the next couple of weeks, I am.

Recommendation for all book lovers: While on the boat, I finally got round to reading Hlen Hanff's 84 Charing Cross Road. It's delightfully charming, based on the correspondence between an American woman and the staff at a London bookshop.

Had a mammoth shopping session to do today to restock the larder. Went up to Tescos and bought a new colour printer cartridge. Just looked at it prior to installing it - it's not colour, it's black. What an earth are they thinking of? Covering the packaging with pictures of colour prints? Bloody misleading that's what it is grumble, grump.

Oh, and while I'm in grump mode, why haven't you used your LJ jennylyle? It's so easy to do using email, just ask irishnoodles.

I case you were wondering, I did do the icon. I was just trying to do something a bit more exciting with it - and failed.

I finished Wee Free Men. I want one. I mean it.

You mean a MacFeegle? Wot on earth for?

I haven't started A Hat Full of Sky yet (the follow-up book). MWNN bought it for my birthday before we went back to the boat and promptly forgot to take it with him. Had to wait 'til we came back to get it. I'm in the middle of Brother and Sister (Joanna Trollope) so can't start it yet.

I couldn't do anything exciting with that pic either. It looked a good idea at the time. Btw, how do you get a different font for the first letter - or a different effect?

Um, by lining them up carefully?

Some fonts are crafty and have an exciting capital set, like this one.

Yep, I want a Macfeegle. They're adorable. I've always liked them.

Okay okay okay Miss Grumpy - firstly welcome home - glad you are both safe and sound - yes, I know I haven't used my LJ - I suppose it's a bit like opening night nerves - I just can't seem to get started - not sure how to use it via email and feel I haven't got much to say - don't even have a cat to talk about like irishnoodles - so don't be tooooo cross with me. I will email you with my news asap - love you heaps. J
