Yesterday I had an evening out with my writing group. Ok...I own up...it wasn't actually a night out, not like we normally do once a week. What I really did was go to the Motorhome for a couple of hours and attend our writing group meeting via Zoom 🤣 It worked really well and was… Continue reading A Night Out With Friends
Today in the UK is Mothers Day and up and down the country Mums will be spending the day, like me, not able to see their children and grand-children (in person) due to this bloody virus ☹️ I might have to resort to ice cream to cheer myself up (if the husband can actually get… Continue reading Happy Mothers Day
Last night was our monthly Mermaids Writing Group meeting. About 4 times a year we have a guest speaker, and last night we welcomed the lovely Peter Jones to our meeting, as an honorary Mermaid 😉 I've known Peter since 2011, when I first met him at Swanwick (the writers summer school) where I bought… Continue reading Fabulous Evening!
No...I didn't have a mud face pack yesterday, or one of those all over body treatments. I spent the morning in a muddy field with 31 Pugs lol. Lynda at Puppydogtails Academy, hosts the Pug meets once a month. Chatting to fellow "Pug Parents" is great fun and seeing my fur babies run around with… Continue reading Mud!
I think I may have finally kicked my FaceBook addiction! I realised quite recently that I was spending about 2 hours a day on social media, mainly FaceBook...WTF???? Do I want to live my life like that? Do I want FaceBook to be the first thing I do when I wake up and am drinking… Continue reading Freedom from FaceBook
Ok, I know i'm a day late, but I think Valentines Day should be like Birthdays...run for longer than just 24 hours 😉 Yesterday my husband took me out for lunch to one of our favourite restaurants, Chapter One. We first visited the restaurant when it was The Fantail, for our 1st Wedding anniversary 34… Continue reading Happy Valentines
Yesterday I went up to London with a friend to see a talk given by writer Tracy Chevalier, author of Girl With A Pearl Earring (amongst her many other books). It was a lovely day (even with the tube closures!) and Ms Chevalier was both inspiring and interesting. I came away realising that research doesn't… Continue reading Inspiration
I love to chat...probably too much lol. When I was at school I was always getting in trouble for not listening and chatting to my friends *sniggers* Yesterday I met a friend for coffee at Baskervilles Coffee House. It's a great place...small...very friendly staff and good food (Gluten free & Vegan cakes!). Their Avocado on… Continue reading A Good Old Natter
Today was a grand-parenting day and hugs from small children are just the best. Do a Google search on hugging and it pulls up loads of articles that list the benefit of a hug....but, you have to do it for 20 seconds! I don't know about you, but that seems an uncomfortable amount of time.… Continue reading The 20 Second Rule
Once a week I meet up with a group of friends for general chit chat plus discussions on books, writing, films and TV. We met through Nanowrimo and are a very diverse group...and thats what i love about it. No matter what mood i'm in when I arrive, even if i've had the shitiest of… Continue reading Friends
