My Pretties *insert cackle*

It's a bit of a sick day here chez Roland,with Mr TR down for the count and me feeling a bit under the weather (which, by the way, seems endlessly grey and drizzly these days). But... look what came by courier today to cheer me up!






Aren't they pretty? What's cheering you up today?
Oh, the lovely Lucie Wheeler (who is getting married soon!) interviewed me on her blog today! Lucie's super nice and even if you don't have a chance to read my rambles, pop over to say hi if you can.

  3. Can just add how much of a loser I felt making my books 'pose' in various positions? I even had them spread out on a red blanket (which didn't turn out, thank goodness!).

  68. Ooooh that has to be one of the most amazing things to arrive in the mail! Like having a baby without the agony of childbirth: it just gets posted to you :-)

    Congratulations on the imminent paperback release - and on getting your books to pose so beautifully for us!

  69. How exciting! That must have been like Christmas and your birthday rolled into one when you opened that box. That would cheer anyone. I'm cheerful today because the shelves have been installed in my new art room and I can now start setting up my own space. I'm sure you can relate to having your own creative work area.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Beautiful! I would be rubbing them against my face all day.
