Tomorrow my Estonian friend Kadri is coming to stay for a long weekend, she leaves as my parents arrive for a few days next week starting with their wedding anniversary on Monday so it's a rapid turnround in the guest bedroom, fresh bedding, towels etc are already lined up :D

I'm still getting sorted after convention weekend, lets hope this one involves more sleep :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Mum's having a cataract op on Tuesday morning.

Good luck to your mum.

I will be at work tomorrow. I know that some people are off tomorrow to make it a 4 day weekend. Is Labour Day observed anywhere in Europe?

Don't think so.

I think it's a North American thang.

I think our May Day holiday is about the closest thing as it falls on International Workers Day

Yeah, but our May Day is associated with dancing round maypoles and other such fertility rites. ;) Much more interesting than celebrating work .

It is. Keep an eye out for the Novella The Revealing eye. Only a thousand were published but its worth hunting down (its a bit different to the story of the same name in Nocturnes)
The Dublin launch is in a small Independent shop in Temple Bar. He promised he'd sign my full Charlie Parker collection last time i talked to him so he's in for a shock when i arrive with ten HB 1st editions :lol:
