No books

So, why have I not posted anything in two weeks? Why have I not read any books? Because I am currently slogging my way through The Scramble for Africa by Thomas Pakenham, which is HUGE, and I am limbering up for NaNoWriMo in one week from tomorrow, and I am sick.

And, it is the winter, when the stars come out for walking in the morning, and for Strictly Come Dancing in the evening.

More of both of those things later. Now, tea and Lemsip and telly.

Give us a spoiler! What's The Scramble For Africa about?

The Scramble for Africa, that's the one about the huge charity event from 1973 to highlight African poverty where they tried to make the world record breaking omlette, right?

Sam is also a Strictly Come Dancing fan. I have found myself saying things like "he's not very fluid is he," and "she needs to keep her shoulders down."

I think I need help.

Lolz at Myles.

Andrew, you will find out about the Scramble for Africa when I've finished it, and not before. Which at this rate could be never.

There's a clue in the title.
