planning meeting....

Had a splendid and very jolly lunch with Saskia yesterday! It was part planning meeting for The Great Adventure and part our usual robust and occasionally a tad raucous discussion about writing and the erotic romance writing scene in particular. Have to say, we were both on splendid form and probably terrified a lot of the quiet living patrons of Cafe Revive in big town! LOL

Also tried on some trousers in BHS, with a view to building my wardrobe for the forthcoming trip, but was most displeased with the sight that greeted me in the harsh, unforgiving light of the changing room mirror. Was rather afraid that Captain Ahab would fling a harpoon over the top of the cubicle door, so vast were the tracts of blubber on show. I think it's time to start easing back on the quantities of chocolate that I consume, and to try and eat a bit more healthily. I don't want to be skinny or anything, because I'm not that uncomfortable with the way I look, and I dress crafty anyway.... but I don't want to be charged for excess @rse-baggage when I board the aeroplane in July!

And finally, is anyone interested in a Yahoochat with a bunch of fabulous Berkley Heat authors today? Including my fabulous buddy Saskia and many others?

Well, they'll be hanging out on the Joyfully Reviewed Chat Loop between 10am and 10pm EST. It should be fantastic... I'm looking forward to joining in the fun.

Telly: News24

Don't forget Portia's Promos - new stuff being added all the time!

Wendy, BHS's stretch denim leggings (which also come in clours, not just denim) are my staple. The trick is to wear them with a below-butt top. And funnily enough, BHS currently have a selection in their sale.

BTW, I have a bookmark that swears chocolate is a food group.

Thanks for posting about the chat, and for calling by and making it even more fun :)

We probably have heaps more planning to do, I foresee lots of long meetings in coffee shops.... LOL

I will take a look at those leggings next time in BHS, Val! Below the butt tops? I didn't realise there were any other kinds? LOL!

Eagerly anticipating our next 'planning' meeting, Saskia! Perhaps I'll even write something in my notebook next time... ;)

I came prepared with a pristine new Pukka Pad and a bundle of pencils... then never wrote a word!

LOL. Well, we barely take a breath, but i agree, some notes may help. An agenda! I always come away thinking "meant to ask that" several times.
