Author Events: Story Time

Turning up to an author event is a daunting task when it is your first time. The nerves are rattled, insecurities rear their ugly heads and it takes every ounce of strength not to turn tail and run back out to the safety of my car. Well, that’s what it was like for me anyway! Continue reading

Monday Coffee

Hi!  We seem to be meeting in the most exotic places for our coffee catch ups!  Today we are at a party in Namibia with SerinsSphere and I must say, coffee is the furthest thing from my mind!

The venue is lovely and some friendly, familiar places have already arrived.  If you didn’t receive an invite, don’t worry – here’s yours now!

  
Okay, so now that you’ve grabbed a drink and scrumptious hors d’ourve, tell me about your weekend.  Mine has had its ups and downs, the highlight being a trip to a local country park.  We walked through fields with cows grazing and ended up at a play park where the little sprogs could run like maniacs!

Today was even better.  I spent most of it with a lovely lady putting up a mural for our library at school.  It was nice seeing some progress being made on the project.

What about you?  Did you have to work today or are you on school holiday like we are in the UK?

Now my writing on the other hand has slowed down again. My illustrator, Carol, sent me a lovely surprise today.  She’s added colour to our cover pic for A Tale of Knots (paperback version).  One step closer to completion.  Cecil The Bully is giving her quite the challenge but I have faith in her. She will find the angle she’s looking for in the illustrations.

I feel a bit rude.  The hors d’ourves plate is empty and we’ve been chatting for a while.  Let’s turn out attention to the other guests and not forget to thank Serins for holding this shindig!

Fancy topping up at the bar with me?  Let’s go! 😀 

Woohoo! #Wensfriesday!

Drinks for all today! I’ve completed my first day in my new role at work and it rocked. I love it and the job encompasses everything I enjoy – reading, literacy, encouraging children to enjoy reading and better themselves and progressing the school to the best of its ability.

Anyway, never mind that. We have more important things to discuss. What sweet treat did you enjoy today? Please tell me you gave yourself something nice to celebrate the first Friday of the week. For my Wensfriesday treat, the Hubble bought a bag of Liquorice Allsorts…yum!!

Tucked up in bed after a very long day, we are snuggled up with the goody bag, picking out our favourite ones. My second favourite day of the week is tomorrow because it is Library day at school. Next week is World Book Day and preparations are in play for a fun-filled day. My dream is to one day have Scat, Miranda, Le Brush and Cecil featuring on the reading list for World Book Day.

Have a lovely Wensfriesday and don’t forget to share your treats. ☺️
