I woke up (more wearily than I'd prefer) to zealous cuddles from Nikos and Sophia, and then toast and tea.
The kids gave me lovely, hand-written cards, and a schmick new Bialetti coffee percolator.
(I gave myself a new 'Joker' t-shirt and a bottle of Laphroaig.)
This fortnight, my English publishers have also been giving me gifts: new covers.
|Voltaire's Vine and Other Philosophies|
(Random House UK, 4/14)
|How to Exercise (Pan Macmillan UK, 1/14)|
Now off for the ultimate gift: some time with Ruth.
