Happy New Year everyone.
The last few days have been pretty knackering. Lots of fun, lots of dim sum and we even found time to watch Dumbo.
I fought for some shiny new football boots in the Battle of Lillywhites (which locals call the 'sale'). The boots helped Imaginary Madrid to a 5-5 draw last night. That's the fourth draw in ten games this season - very unusual for five-a-side. We've only lost two, so that's good. On the other hand, we've only won four.

I'm going to New York!
Come and say hello at the Books of Wonder bookstore on January 28th, 12 noon. I'll be there talking about this with David Clement-Davies and Kenneth Oppel. (Obviously they'll be talking about their books, even though the last sentence made it sound like we'd all be sitting there discussing me, me, me.)
I can't wait to meet some New York readers.
Then in March I'll be popping up here and there in the UK for the publication of:
It's out on March 6th here in the UK. You can even pre-order it here.
I'll let you know about events in March closer to the time.
