Back • 21 October 2008 • The SnowBlog


Hello, I'm back! I have to report that I have given birth to a superior child. Last night, and the preceeding three or four nights, the young master woke only twice in the night. For non-parents of newborns, that is rather super. He is also a pro at feeding. In summary, I have had what feels like a fortnight's holiday (punctuated only by some astonishing hormonal swings) and return refreshed and happy! Andy and I have both read a lot on our leave. I've been at the five thick Jeeves and Wooster omnibi that Andy kindly bought me. Mostly the same thing happens in each story. Jeeves pales at the sight of a particularly fruity cummerbund; Bertie gets into a scrape with an aunt; all is resolved when Jeeves' superior brain comes up with a plan. But they're thoroughly enjoyable, none the less. Andy has also been reading long books - the Paul Hamilton trilogies. Good if you like Iain M Banks, he says. Which we do. Thanks again to everyone who's sent such kind wishes, cards and presents. It's appreciated more than I can say. And now - on with the Snowbooks show! (I'm not, of course, dumping little Ro on someone else at his tender age - he will be steering the good ship Snowbooks from the comfort of his sling. After all, in 21 years he may well want to do that full time...)


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
