OH THIS IS BRILLIANT!

New Hilary McKay Casson book!

(The cover looks APPALLING, and even if I weren't firmly opposed to publishers changing the covers of new titles so that the series doesn't match, I do not like photos on books.)

New Casson book! It's called Caddy's World, and it's about Caddy when she was younger and Rose was just born. It comes out in May, and that's not now, but it is pretty soon. I'm so glad that she went back on her statement that it was the last book. (Maybe she will write more Exiles too? I would like that.)

Has anyone read Hilary McKay's Pudding Bag School series? I thought that she'd only written books for younger children apart from Cassons, Exiles and Dog Friday, but her site suggests that it's for ages 9-12 like the others.

I am going to read back issues of Rose's blog now.

At my supervision today I was told that my chapter (well, 1/4 of a chapter) was "a pleasure to read".

Is there anything better than being really quite hungry, yet too lazy to go downstairs to get food, and then unexpectedly finding half a bag of gummy sweets in the folds of the duvet? I have to say no, there isn't.

Via [livejournal.com profile] ankaret - You Don't Have to Be Pretty. I love this. I have a friend who persists in saying things like "oh, she would look so much better in a nice pencil skirt" and telling me that I should wear more brown instead of black, when I love black, and also rather hate pencil skirts.
