I hope you're joking PM.

I was there from 11 until 6, had a table right next to the main tills and if I left it was for no more than regular 3 mins to sneak a fag with a 'Back In 5 Mins' sign on the table and keeping an eye on it....other than once when I once went to get another bucket of coffee from Costa and a quick piss. There was a bit of a queue.

The staff all seemed quite switched on so if you came down I'm well sad I missed you......soz. What's mi'penance?

Other than this, great day.


We did thoroughly scour the shop on each floor at about 3.15. Asked the staff on the top level, one of whom thought she saw you by the main entrance. Only chap I saw was the Gruffalo bloke.

It is of no consequence - we were in town anyway. I thought you might have been interested in meeting the Grand-Duke, what with him being a non-executive director of WH Smiths and a trustee of Leeds' Museums.*

I sincerely hope it all went well. We spotted the book on display in the front entrance. Very impressive.

**Though we really were there

Yeh but I didn't want to miss you, it must have been my one piss/coffee buying break. You wait in like an anti-chamber in the bog.

Soz.

For the coffee and the bog.

I had a bit of a swamp of people early doors but forgot about the camera.   Because I'm stupid.

I know you're joking but I wasn't pro-active enough, there's a few extra things I should have done but it was going well and I became a bit lethargic. Could have done more out and about and smarter flogging.

I don't think he was joking Mick, you can tell by his eyes.

Here is an idea, use the public transport system in Leeds and drop loads of flyers everywhere.

They look like they are asking for directions.

Is that a Leeds six coat the second chap is wearing?

Wish I'd been able to get up yesterday, I'd have had me photo taken with him and stuck it in Sink or swim.

*the second bloke that is, if you thought I meant Mick*

That was quite surreal, my Guardian champion was there with his wife as well, and he engaged Mr Peace in a 'so you're a fan too David, how much do we love Mick's style?'......I think David was being polite and I hadn't had time to ask if he liked COAABFILYE. He was with exciting, up-and coming, young, new writer Wes Brown. I haven't read my copy yet as I'm still rooting through mine - up to last 5 pages. And Clavanes is next to read. But I'm lookiong forward so Shark.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Shark-Wes...TF8&qid=1290340989&sr=1-1  

Mr Wainwright was a top salesman, kept grabbing random people and extolling the books virtues and always made the sale, a natural. His wife was joyous, y'know when you meet someone and think, Can you please put aside the next three weeks so me and you can sit and talk bollocks?

Tonight, I've been asked to set up a table in the Queen's Hotel @

 Don't ask me, think it's mainly a business thing and it gets me out of the kids hair.

Nah Mick, think they've just run out of waiting staff and they couldn't help notice how presentable you were in Waterstone's
