A Walk to the Post Box

It's half a mile to our post box, just right for a short walk and there's always lots to see.

No donkeys today, however, ... they seem to be hiding.

Badgers are lovely to look at, but not very popular here.  This one didn't make it.

There's a lovely view from this quiet spot in someone's garden.

 The tops have been taken out some nearby trees.

So the rooks have had to build new homes.  You have to be careful walking under them.  I took a chance looking up to take this!

The daffodils in our bank are still looking good.

As is the gardener!  Time to make him a cup of tea.

Move Over Darling

Sorry, I can't help it... I will stop soon, but I just like looking at it...

If you have a minute...

Do have a look at a great siteNovel Spaceswhere there's lots to explore and where I'm a guest today.

Oh, and then there's what I think is a great sight.  My new cover on the Choc Lit blog today!

A Spot of Sunshine

Lovely Juliet Greenwood whose novel Eden’s Garden, published by Honno, is officially launched tomorrow, has kindly nominated this blog for a Sunshine Award. Thank you, Juliet and congratulations - the postman should be delivering my copy of Eden’s Garden very soon, I hope! Juliet has asked me to post some random facts about myself, but I’ve also seen bloggers posting about things that make them happy in response to this award so, as it’s been one of those days, I’m writing about random things that have made me happy today.

At this very moment, as I type this, Turning the Tide is #1 in Kindle Store Books Contemporary Romantic Fiction which, I can tell you, has made me pretty jolly happy.

…especially after a rather bruising online incident at the weekend when my fellow Choc Lit authors rallied round me, picked me up and dusted me off again. I haven’t met all of the Choc Lit team and I’ve hardly met any of the friends I’ve made through social media, but the kindness and support of pe…

At Home and Away

Lalalaa! March 1st, my wedding anniversary, we’re off for a mini-holiday and I’m happy. So happy, in fact, that I feel a sudden urge to hula-hoop before hopping in the shower. So what if I’m in my nightie – who’s going to see? And, yes, since I’m now quite proficient at this hula nonsense, let’s pump up the volume – Lana Del Rey, in fact, Off to the Races, whilst I channel my inner Rihanna. Then - dear Lord - I get the feeling I am not alone. A male neighbour (not many of them about round here, I can assure you – but I’ve found one) is looking utterly traumatised by the horrible spectacle, so I gather up my hoop and make a dash for cover – not easy when you are wearing something resembling an enormous crinoline.
Luckily for me, Tom and I are off on our mini hols at The Quay  thanks to the girls and their partners. Deganwy in North Wales is a three hour drive away, meandering through the mountains and some very beautiful scenery. In some ways I’ve got a bit used to beautiful vie…
