Jolly Ol' England

Well, tonight we celebrated my wife's birthday.  Normally, that would have meant a day of me in the kitchen baking some sort of very elaborate cake I'd never baked before.  This year, things have been a little busy, so I have promised something sweet, delicious and complicated in a culinary fashion when we return.

Tomorrow we fly to England.  We'll actually arrive at Gatwick on Sunday morning.  The Pratchett Prize party isn't until Tuesday.  I imagine we'll spend the time before then relaxing with my aunt and uncle and possibly pay a visit to Wakehurst Place, a wonderful botanical paradise just a few minutes from where we will be staying.

I'll be sure to update on Wednesday.  Now - must get packing...
