Bookshops and Groceries

Not many words today - I'm crazy busy finishing off the last minute packing, collecting and ready-ing for going away.  I leave for New York tomorrow morning - can't quite believe that something I've been looking forward to for ages is finally here.  It all seems a little surreal!  Happily my polaroid film arrived yesterday - I took one "test picture" to make sure everything works and almost squeaked in excitment when the picture turned out so well.   Now I can officially declare my camera a bargain buy at 8 Euro.   I have grand plans for the rest of the film that has something to do with the Sketchbook Project - remember how I was supposed to be doing that?  Well, its happening this holidays.

But now back to packing...
