Covered in Koala.

What a day and it's only half way through. Had a great meeting with my book designer…. it's soooooo exciting. Then we bought a car (well ordered it). Now you can have one built  for you… bright red, cream leather seats, wood paneling … a sun roof… it has all the bells and whistles…you just…
