Ding Doing, Avon Calling

It's been a great month for Avon, my third with the company. I am loving the products they offer as they are all of good value, attractive and sweet-smelling. You may even have seen adverts on the television recently too. As a result of that, I've had extra orders.For myself, I've ordered the beautiful Lavenda… Continue reading Ding Doing, Avon Calling

Books, Lovely Books!

These are all of the books I’ve read this year. I’ve taken this screenshot from Goodreads. One thing I don’t much care for is how it shows old covers, and I can’t update them. I’ve just watched a really good video on YouTube from a fellow bibliophile, which prompted me to show you this. If… Continue reading Books, Lovely Books!

No books For Sale Here

Well, that's not strictly true. I do have a couple still available. I took all of mine offline this year because I got a new editor, and realised I needed to rewrite every single one. Not a quick or easy task. I reckon it will take me a couple of years to do them all.… Continue reading No books For Sale Here

My Words Are Weapons

This is so interesting that I thought I would share it, my fellow Norns Triad author Temari James has a new blog, so hit the follow button, too. Before I officially became an author I used to write little stories and store them inside a shoebox. And even though they were absolute crap I held… Continue reading My Words Are Weapons

National Father in Law Day

My father in law passed away early 1983. I’d known him for five years. We had a great relationship. He was the biggest kidder going and I was young and naive. In their caravan, they had a dried star fish and he told me it was in suspended animation and if put back into water,… Continue reading National Father in Law Day

International Tiger Day!

In honour of this day here is a cross stitch picture I did back in 2003. I really loved stitching this one. I remember taking it on holiday to Anglesey and would sit in the lounge of the B&B stitching. Lots of people took an interest in what I was doing, and it was nice… Continue reading International Tiger Day!

National Thread A Needle Day

This didn't get posted on the day, so don't suppose it matters. I love craft particularly cross stitching. I threaded my needle a few days ago to start a new project from Cross Stitcher magazine. It is a bee, as you can see below, and it is a little further along now. If you want… Continue reading National Thread A Needle Day


National Parent’s Day

In 1994, President Bill Clinton signed 36 U.S.C. § 135 into law, establishing National Parents’ Day. According to the United Nations, Parents’ Day is meant to show appreciation to parents everywhere for their “selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship.” Continue Reading...
