Today I am grateful for:
- A decent night’s sleep last night — I was up with her only twice.
- Heinz Vegetarian Baked Beans which, apart from the cloying sweetness of the brown sugar, taste remarkably close to British baked beans and, poured over buttered toast, were the perfect 10pm dinner for two famished househunters.
- The really wonderful encouragement I get about some of my blog posts — in the comments section, in emails, and from M. He had me laughing tonight when he read yesterday’s post and then exclaimed, “Oh man, what the fuck are you doing?!? People would pay good money for a book full of this shit and it just falls out of your head! I could almost be angry with you, me here busting my butt every day to make a living and you have this and you’re just sitting on it!” Bless ‘im! I’m realistic enough to know there’s a big difference between a midnight blog and successful book, but I am deeply grateful for the sentiment nonetheless.
