Guess What I’m Doing Now...

I am having a delicious, illicit, probably-clearly-indicative-of-alcohol-problems, glass of celebratory champagne whilst all alone in the house on a weekday lunchtime. And I am looking at the shiny (polished and cherished by lovely Kate Hardy) Betty Neels rosebowl on my bookcase. And I am feeling a bit weepy.

And when I am finished doing all of these things I’m going to come back and say a proper thank you to you all.

Probably not at all indicative on alchohol problems but far more likely to indicate a damn good reason to celebrate.

I just wish I could come over and celebrate with you

Congratulations again - I'm not getting tired of saying it so I doubt if you're getting tired of hearing it

love

Kate

Don't weep!

Do you have roses to put in the bowl? Like the ones in Orlando's garden? Big sighs... have a lovely, lovely day, India.

Thinking of you lots.

Congrats, India on winning the RNA award! I am so thrilled for you. Mistress: Hired for the Billionaire's Pleasure was one of my favourite books of 2008 and I am so happy for your much-deserved win!

Well done! I can only imagine how you must be feeling...actually I can't really; it must be SO fab! I'll just have to have a glass tonight so I can try to empathise.

Oh huge congrats you!!!!!!!!!

I heard it was described as "Sheer verve and style" and to me that describes you to a "t"!

Celebrate and weep all you want. You earned it!

Karen said...

Raise as many glasses of champers as you possible can, you deserve it! The award was hugely deserving.

Thanks for Orlando, he was good, wasn't he?

xx Karen
