What I'm reading at the moment

image of the book coverWomen in the Background
by Barry Humphries

"He's risen above his unexceptional origins in Australia to become the toast of the London stage and a top-rating television performer ... Slowly at first, then with frightening speed, Derek Pettyfer's frayed life unravels, helped by sadistic dentists, fetishistic secretaries and the ugly-spirited beautiful people who infest great cities."
Another Christmas present from Mr A; all right so far but I've got a bad feeling about how the story will go, given the cover quote.

So you are finished the exams! Hooray!! When do you get the results? and are you totally done? or is there more?

The book looks like an interesting read...lord - I don't know what I'd do without something to read....

I have absolutely no idea when the results come out! I hadn't even thought about it, but I imagine it will take a few weeks for them to do all the marking. I will probably blog about it, but no promises, it depends how good or bad I feel about the marks I get.

I'm totally done for now - there are exams at the end of each semester, so the next lot will be in May.
