I hate being such a cliché but.....I'm still in my pyjamas (at half past four in the afternoon) because I have been reading The Book That Shall Not Be Named since the end of the Archers omnibus (my Sunday morning ritual. The omnibus, that is, not the all-day readathon). It's excellent so far, and much wittier than the last few (the book, not the Archers Omnibus). Spoil me, and die.

In other news, when not almost destroying priceless family heirlooms yesterday I was frolicking at a barbecue in my friend L's family house. My schoolfriends used to spend much of our teens hanging out there, but I haven't been there for years, and it was funny how utterly familiar it all still was. We all (well, my mates and I) wore summery frocks, lots of punch was drunk and hot dogs eaten, and it was an absolutely lovely day. Even when L's mother said "you haven't aged a day since you first came out here in your little wine school uniform!" which, if true, would be incredibly creepy. Luckily I do not look like my 14 year old self, being about a stone heavier and the recipient of several years of expensive orthodontry. But she meant well.
