Postman's Knock

It must be said that long gone are the days of waiting eagerly for the postman.

When you're a kid post only ever seems to be good: birthday cards, postcards, presents, letters from friends, invitations to parties...

Alas the same cannot be said now I'm an adult - these days it's far more likely to be bills, letters from the tax office, more bills, junk mail (the latest offering me a bone density scan - did wonders for my ego I can tell you). And maybe some more bills.

But today the postman brought me something that definitely put a smile on my face. Take a look...

These are the page proofs. The very first time I've seen it all in print. Not a bad thing to cheer up a rainy Tuesday morning eh?

Fame - Or Flatulence?

I am possibly the most squeamish person in Britain. And thus it is with great excitement that I can announce that this week I found myself in the Amazon charts at number 23 in Books > Humour > Doctors & Medicine.

This put me just one place above a book entitled 'A Little Fart'.... Which I guess probably puts it into perspective.
