It’s here… the new cover

Here it is! Dusting Down Alcudia's new cover courtesy of Danish designer Mia Overgaard. I love it.  Next step: book launch, which I will be doing next week, so watch out for more news on that. So, how are you all? I've had a busy week working on Dusting Down Alcudia and the young adult … Continue reading It’s here… the new cover

Comicon here we come!

Hello everyone! How are you? Hope you are well. What have you been up to this week? We went down to Lomond Shores yesterday (Saturday) to attend Comicon. It was actually a lot better than I thought it would be. My kids enjoyed themselves, dressing up as their favourite characters, and having their photos taken … Continue reading Comicon here we come!

London, baking and no yeast

I cannot believe that I wrote a whole post the other day and totally forgot to mention that me and the kids had been down to London the other weekend. We went down to celebrate two birthdays: my darling daughter's and my lovely friend Raymond's. It was a great weekend - exhausting, but worth it. … Continue reading London, baking and no yeast

Birthdays, lunches, reading, making…but no tinsel

Comfort Eating, Nora and Bridget Jones’ Baby

Oh I’ve been tired this week. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve not been sleeping at all well. Well, I do know what caused some of it – the girl shouting out at 2am ‘Where’s the toilet roll?’ and I took an allergic reaction another night which caused me to be wheezy and … Continue reading Comfort Eating, Nora and Bridget Jones’ Baby

Throwing Cartons of Orange Juice and Florence Foster Jenkins

Things have quietened down lately and thank goodness. For a while there, myself and the kids were dining out rather a lot, which is good for seeing friends and family, but not great for the pocket. However, while we’ve been going out less, the house has not been peaceful thanks to my kids fighting with … Continue reading Throwing Cartons of Orange Juice and Florence Foster Jenkins
