Hooray! It's launch time - part 1

I am blogging on Fiona's machine and my camera won't talk to her PC so I shall have to paint you a word picture of the launch party.

Imagine a good-sized bungalow with a large sitting room, biggish dining room and enormous kitchen, plus Fee's office and a downstairs bedroom. Imagine them all stacked with envelopes and mailing packs containing the wonderful books all waiting for the magic 4pm moment when the goodies will be popped in them and then...off they go.

Now imagine a champagne bottle - still quite full, as we are trying to remain in full control until we've packed the giveaways. I shall be back very soon must stuff some more envelopes!

Well the launch party sounds fun but I'm sure you will need a cool glass (or two) of champagne when you have finished.

Hi Maggie,
No champs here in very hot Lincolnshire, but the wine is cooling in the fridge. Congratulations on the new books.

Toasting you all in a good old cuppa! Hope Fiona can reach her bed when she needs to flop! Congratulations to everyone who had a hand in both books - it must be a wonderful feeling.

You paint a wonderful picture Maggie so we don't need the camers ones.
My question is what does the local post office staff say when you turn up with all these books to be posted.
