Don't you just love when it's a time of special events in your life, whether that be milestone birthdays, anniversaries, or such like. Last year, I had a significant birthday and next month husband and I celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. Although we find it difficult to imagine forty years together, we're both still fit and healthy enough to enjoy life and are looking forward to a special holiday. But more of that in June!
Last weekend, we celebrated our beautiful wee granddaughter's third birthday and that was a very special day. Both sets of grandparents and Aunty Vikki joined in the fun and enjoyed the pink fairytale castle cake. The colour pink and fairy stories have suddenly ousted Thomas the Tank Engine from top place, so we're assuming girls will be girls all by themselves!
This week, my lovely daughter, Victoria (to use our name for her), has signed a contract with traditional publisher, Strident, who will publish her debut YA novel, Follow Me, in October. I'm so delighted for her as she's had some success with short fiction and deserves to be more widely read. I can't wait for this to be out at last and imagine it will be enjoyed by older teens and adults alike.
I should be emailing out the May newsletter over the weekend hopefully, so if you haven't already subscribed and would like to be added to the mailing list (which is only used for the newsletter), please drop your email address into the box on the right side of the blog.
Hope you all enjoy the bank holiday weekend. Some summer sun would be a lovely bonus!
