Five days to go. Status: blissful ignorance.

Trying not to think about Sunday too much, but seem to be unable to avoid references to bridges, abseilers, etc., on TV. Even doing a competition online, one of the suggested answers was ‘Vertigo’ (the film).

Got two very pleasant parcels today. The first was from the lovely Ms Earl and contained a fantastic book which no writer should be without. Curiously, the only reference to my own publisher was not in the directory, but in the competition section. Apparently, it now costs £10 to enter the UA competition… I also got an even more fantastic lucky mini-cat. It has already worked its magic and my second parcel was two Little Black Dress books which I’d won in a competition! If it can keep up the good work, I would be a happy lady indeed!
