It was lovely for this first-timer, though I got my words in late and probably a bit rough! Fell asleep last night and had to write most of it on the drive back in the back seat.

Now that’s proper posh: writing while your chauffeur drives you home!

Yep, it's big fun! (not so sure about lovely)
Now, tell us everything, all at once. Don't you get car sick if you write in the back? Isn't it hard to drive and type?

Sorry, just got my lunatic cat off the keyboard. Pay no attention to the above.

Have you seen that flaming white mug? MINE!

Also, I'm in awe of Mary Queen of the Socks (sideways, though she is).

I was wondering about that mug too! :D
And yes, Mary is adorable.
