Congratulations, Relaxation & My Weekly

Congratulations to the clever and talented, Calistro on her wonderful news, which you can read about here as she now has an agent.

Having seen that the forecast promised a glorious day on Saturday, I decided that nothing would stop me from making the most of the sun. I spent several hours chatting with my mother, who had brought my niece and nephew to see me, whilst my sister moved house.

However, what I hadn't foreseen was that on Friday afternoon, after posting on my blog, my phone rang and a lovely lady from My Weekly advised me that the editor had loved a piece I'd sent in and could they have an extra 150 words and a photo. Naturally, I said, of course they could and spent Saturday afternoon reworking what I'd sent them and making sure that they had the desired word count.

So, though I had already posted about having such a great day on friday, I still had this surprise to come. Even going to work this morning couldn't put the dampers on my mood. Long may it last.
