Unless your name is Rose Tyler, in which case it's about 50/50. :lol:

Good day, all! :)
Some days ago I have read THUD (in English)!
With a small tear on a last page (about Sam's family). I'm sensitive... But that's why I take many pleasure in reading TP's books!
And yesterday I started 'A Hat full of Sky' (in English, too).
And I continued to read when I rode to my work on a bus (this morning). There was low limpid beautiful music in my head when I read about Tiffany's Granny... Although this was sad moment but it was light and beautiful at the same time... After while I sad smiled and thought that I would like to live in Disc World, very much...
What a wonderful texts Sir Terry write! It is turns over my soul... with kind (and slightly sad) smile! :)

Have a nice day, all! :)
Best regards! :)

Making me smile today? Getting back on this site! I have SO missed it.

But I am having a whale of a time in the Save the Children charity shop and am looking forward to being in charge on Thursday! Wahoo...probably...

Babby will come when it is ready. That's what a midwife told my friend anyway. Fingers crossed, Pip!
