I am a little sad. Actually I am also tired, but we will cover the sadness first.
Everyone is posting their university results, and I am still busy writing up the assignments. I only have myself to blame, but I did get the opportunity to not be capped at 40%, so I guess I am not too sad. And I will have the chance to share my ability to get a 2:2 (seriously, if I get higher, I will really surprise myself) when no one else is boasting about theirs. So again, I should get out of my pity party and do some work, don't cha think? I concur.
Now the tiredness - well, that is an easy one. The children have had the pox. Chicken, not small. And a certain boy has decided that waking at ungodly hours screaming "Mummy!" at the top of his lungs is a good thing. Not that that happened last night, oh no! Working til 2am and then getting up again at 7am to carry on working - that'll do it!
So last night. Yes the evening of July 7, 2012. The evening where I actually became a paid publisher. And it feels good! Not that having Cookies and Milk on my list of books doesn't feel good. I get a warm fuzzy feeling seeing them, they are for charity of course. They also all say "Edited by Ceri Pritchett" on the front, so that does make me smile. But Leap Day, this is different. I will now get paid. I like being paid. It means I can buy stuff. Or save for a house. Either is good.
And, of course, I am super happy for Mozart. He will now get the recognition that he has deserved for so many years. Which is a very good thing. As long as he gets me the next one by his deadline, then there will be more news coming at the end of the year.
And it is now 8.50am, and I am still in my pyjamas and have seemed to abandoned my parenting duties and given them to my mother (boy, do I love her). So I really should go and get ready, and update you all again tomorrow on the other things that have been happening. Like another certain launch that I should have talked about a month ago - oopsie!
So for now, I am saying goodbye. I really wish I was saying goodnight though. I wonder what time I can take a nap....

Ceri, you worked so hard on Mozart's launch and I hope you all feel that the hard work paid off! It was a fun day and though I know you are exhausted, I do hope you take a bit of time to really revel in the success of this launch. Awesome job to you all!

Thank you! I just hope I did him justice
