I'm already having a fabulous time, having:
- Discovered Dutch author Nescio ("I don't know") and read his affecting Amsterdam Stories
- Met house manager / poet / fine conversationalist / cheese connoisseur Melanie Carter
- Attended a book reading in Carterton where I listened to extracts from Janis Freegard's new books (and bought her novel The Year of Falling, which I can't wait to read)
...but now it must be time to slide in between the electric blanket and the feather duvet, read another story from Murray Middleton's When There's Nowhere Else to Run, and catch some Zs.
