This week has been so hectic I don’t know whether I”ve been on my arse or my elbow!! My son has left for the USA and then is heading to Europe after a few months, so we’ve had all that to sort out….. he was still packing 10 minutes before we were due to leave for the airport…. and when you’re an anal Type A person like me, it isn’t good for the stress.
My daughter is working on a Masters paper and I’ve been helping her proof…. so that’s a job and a half. And proofing isn’t my strong point!
The NZ government, in its infinite wisdom, decided to increase GST (Goods and Services Tax) to 15% from 12.5%….. omg trying to sort that one out is a living nightmare, all sorts of adjustments have to made for goods bought before Oct 1 but paid after and ditto for rooms we’ve sold in the motel… and let’s not forget the people whose stay with us straddles the date!!!!
Anyway, rant over………….. something very good and very exciting is that my CP and very good friend Amanda Ashby has just posted the back cover copy for her new book Fairy Bad Day, so I thought I’d post it too. This book is so funny you’re going to love it:
My life seriously couldn’t get any worse.
First, my rightful designation of dragon slayer is STOLEN right out from under me by Curtis Green. Sure, he’s really cute, but that doesn’t give him an excuse.
On top of that, I am assigned to slay fairies. I know what you’re thinking—how hard could it be, right? Wrong! These menacing beasts with their tiny hipster clothes and mocking sarcasm love taunting me. And they won’t STOP!
But the thing that tops my list of stuff to ruin my day? That would be the GIANT KILLER FAIRY that I have to hunt down and slay because I am the only one who can see it. There is someone who can help me. Unfortunately…it’s Curtis.
It’s going to be a fairy bad day.
How awesome is that??????
Anyway, I’m heading back to the land of the anally retentive and stressed!!! Hopefully normal service will resume soon (aka chatting on the phone, msn convos, some writing…….)
