Decorating delay

As someone of you have pointed out, the planned launch party last night didn't happen. I just haven't quite managed to get the place finished. It's all this rain - the decorator couldn't get outside to do the windows. So, you'll have to wait a bit longer to see the fab purple front door and all the trimmings. I hope you don't mind a spot of purple :).

I confidently expect the party to be next Friday, May 4th. Please put it in your diary.

So, party on Friday, but some posts in the meantime. All posts here will be in the evening, because Crabbit At Home is for relaxing after work. Sometimes they will be funny things that have happened; sometimes they will cover serious things that annoy or inspire me; there will be photos, fun and gadfly thoughts. I say "relaxing after work" - actually, blogging is hard work, but I find it fun. I will definitely be here every Friday, and sometimes other days as well. I like blogging too much not to, though I do have rather a lot of actual work to do. *coughs and hopes agent is listening*

Welcome to my second home

Welcome! I'm not really open for visitors yet but you are welcome to peep through the windows and perhaps sit with me on the verandah while I take a break from intense building and decoration in my new holiday home. The builders will be here properly very soon and it will look sparkly.

Here is where I will blog each Friday (ish) and we'll talk about non-publishing things. It will be more personal than my work blog, more relaxed, and more wide-ranging. And there will be much, much sparkly wine. Because it will be Friday. And my new resolution is that weekends are for relaxing with friends - that's you!
