But I do actually have cheerful news today, because the booking for the Fort Augustus weekend is open - this appears to be where Charlie McKerron's loyal followers meet up in between summer schools. I could just book the SMO week while I'm at it, actually :-)
Yesterday I did another silly thing, trying to claim a Yuletide pinch hit - however I missed, which is probably a good thing, as I have more than enough projects to take me through to Christmas as it is. I'm kind of sorry not to be playing, though, because Yuletide is the only time I ever write fic these days. And it's the only time that pinch hits have ever appeared while I wasn't fast asleep!
