It took me about a week to recover from my trip to Kansas City, Missouri for the RT Booklovers Convention. I put this down to working whilst I was away rather than holidaying, so that missing sleep while travelling kind of did me in. Then I went to a party, then I got a bug (it was a bug, not a hangover) and now I’m just about catching up. So, late but I hope still fun, are some of my pix.

    I wonder why I’m humming ‘Robert De Niro’s Waiting’? 😉 xx
