Having finally completed my web site, I submitted it and a sitemap to Google at the beginning of December.
A look at the index status today, 29/12/12, shows 0 indexed, and 5 Not selected.
I can live with the 0 indexed at this stage because, as I understand it (which might be not at all!), indexing takes time and is also reliant upon back links??? However, the bit that's got me puzzled is the 'Not Selected' part. Having read the help attached to the 'Not selected' icon, it seems that it ignores pages that are duplicate or redirected. However, I'm sure my pages are all completely different! I have a home page, a bookings page, a contact us page, a gallery page and one or two others, none of which is like another. And as for redirects there are none!
What does this result mean?
