So I've done the dreaded school uniform and shoe shopping thing. The books are labelled the rucksacks are ready and by God so am I. I adore my children, they are the light of my life and the reason I get up each day - but dear God above the summer holidays are long. Three whole months they've been here. Enough quality time!
All jokes aside they're actually looking forward to going back. I know the early mornings are going to be a serious shock to the system for them, but I'm a fan of routine. At the moment they're in bed at all hours and getting up around lunch time. It's dreadful. Oh ok I'm just jealous because I get up to work and get stuff done while they're tucked up in the land of nod!
I'm very excited about the paper back of Talk to the Headscarf which hits Irish shops on September 8th. As usual I'd encourage people to buy as many copies of my book as they can carry. I've said it before and I'll say it again - the more copies of my book you buy, the more I'll love you!!
