beach

(no subject)

Waterstone's didn't have my book. The sales assistant took one look at the shipped date (yesterday) and said 'oh, I don't think it'll be here yet. They just use the ordinary post'

Well, I use the ordinary post, and quite often stuff I send turns up the next day.

She checked. No book.

"We're open tomorrow though, might be here. Otherwise probably Monday."

I did consider asking if it would be possible to get one of the half-dozen copies they had on the shelves downstairs, but decided it was too nice a day to waste, and wandered off for a coffee and a sit in the sun. Bizarrely got smiled at by several women whilst out and about, which immediately makes me think I've got hair sticking up, or something on my chin.
