..how much I am enjoying On Beauty!!! Who would have thought it? I never expected it to be quite so funny and entertaining, so big thanks to Girl With The Mask and Milla for persuading me to get it down from the TBR shelf at long last and blow the dust off it. I read 100 pages last night, am loving it. I'm rather stunned to see those words in black and white, having assumed otherwise (see previous post and comments if I am confusing you.)
Must confess, I did find it slightly disconcerting to discover that there was a character called Kiki in the book, as Kiki has become synonymous with funny parrot remarks in our house, since my eldest has been on her Enid Blyton love-in. "Wipe your feet, blow your nose, wipe your nose, blow your feet, what a pity, what a pity" etc. And if you don't know what I'm on about, shame on you! (Oh, all right, Kiki the parrot is the star of such greats as The Castle of Adventure, The Mountain of Adventure etc.) Ahh, the bit on the train where cheeky Kiki stuffs toffee wrappers into the sleeping old man's pocket! Ahem. Anyway, moving on.
Change of subject. I've got myself a new sporting challenge lined up for after the Race for Life (June 1st - still time to sponsor me if you are feeling generous...). I'm a bit scared about it but quite excited too. Anyone want to have a guess? Go on, someone flatter me and say the London marathon...
