I wonder where the birdies is?
Oh, I love those old sayings, don't you?
Yes, Spring is here at last, meteorologically speaking anyway. And before you start I am well aware that the Spring Equinox does not technically occur until the 20th of March but if it's good enough for Tomasz Shafernacker (not a name that rolls of the tongue as easily as Michael Fish I grant you, but let's move with the times, eh?) then it's good enough for me.
Days are getting lighter and longer.
Temperatures are on the up. Theoretically anyway, let's just pretend that it didn't snow yesterday.
Life is good.
So, what's happening then?
Well as you are no doubt well aware the book is officially out at the end of April. What do you mean, you hadn't been paying attention!?
It's a kids book, age 7 to 10 ish,
Misty's in it - she'll be miffed that you didn't know, wait till I tell her!
I got loads of copies coming.
Want one? Perhaps we can do a deal? I'll get madam to put her paw-print on it for you.
I’m shaving off my beard, oh, so you hadn’t noticed that either! Here it is - enjoy it while you can, go on - have a good laugh about Grizzly Adams’s grandad and all that.
Talking of things medical, I got an appointment at Birmingham Dental Hospital - really looking forward to that then, like a hole in the head. And I guess if the dentist's aim is a bit off that's what I'll end up with!
And then we're off to London at the weekend, so if you fancy popping round to rob the place now is as good a time as any. Kate's daughter and family are over from the States for a visit, so we're off to meet them.
We're stopping not far from the Houses of Parliament, so I might pop in for a chat with Dave and Jeremy, put the world to rights as it were. I've got a few suggestions as it happens, but I'm not too sure if the River Thames has a short pier that they can both take a long walk on. Still, it's worth a try, they can only say no.
After that, a bit of sightseeing? Pop in to Liz and Phil's place for a cup of tea and a slice of fruit cake - if they're there of course, they do seem to spend an awful lot of time up in Scotland.
Perhaps a quick spin on the old Eye. Then again perhaps not, it is a bit high after all.
And before you know it we'll be home again pretty sharpish because I'm expecting some books to be delivered from the publisher. Not sure if I'd mentioned it, it's called DOGNAPPED!
It's for kids and Misty's in it.
Psst! Wanna buy one...
