I'm sure some of you have seen the behind-the-scenes book that's gone on sale. I decided to use some of the money I put away every month for my convention fund. I thought it would take a couple of weeks to arrive so imagine my joy when this appeared.....
Now imagine I walk into the living room holding said book with a happy grin on my face, and mum asks what I've brought. So I explain that it's a coffee table book all about Supernatural.
Now as you all know I only have to say the word Supernatural and the red mist descends on mum, she glared at me and sneered, "I don't why you bother." I looked at her as if to say what are you on about? She helpfully carried on, "Well all those bloody pictures you've had taken, they don't even look like you anymore do they?"
She didn't have to say, because you're a scraggy mess that looks like it's dying it was all there in the way she said it. So I went from elation to wanting to stand there sobbing my heart out in a heartbeat. But that's mum for you, she always seems to have a problem with anything that makes me happy and she seems to take a great deal of delight in bringing in me down.
In other news, Steve's really pissed at her at the minute!
