Never work with children or animals, they say. I’d add technology: never work with technology… except for the fact that you can’t avoid the stuff. It’s great when it’s doing what it should: I have a gadget strapped to my wrist that buzzes and shouts MOVE! if I’ve been sitting still for longer than is healthy – this thing is a little like my husband, reproduced in electronic form.
But I’m sorry to report that we’ve had a wobble here at TTY that made it impossible for people to comment/like for about a week, although it’s all fixed now with the help of an abundance of Sellotape and some magic spells. Of course this happened in the week when Bloomsbury and I were running a giveaway that involved commenting, because the universe has a great sense of humour and it likes to mess with my head.
Anyway, in recognition of this disruption to the giveaway, the executive committee here at TTY (aka me and my glass of wine) have had a bit of a conflab, and in the interests of fairness, we’ve decided to extend the competition for an extra three days, so it will now close at midday GMT on Monday 8th February.
If you tried to enter during the barren period when my computer refused to talk to your computer, I apologize for the inconvenience, and encourage you to please submit your entry again by leaving your comment at the end of the giveaway post. My computer is now out of its sulk and is happy to chat.
So if you haven’t entered already, give it a go. There are five copies of this marvellous book to be won.
And now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to finish knitting some mittens.
