World Book Night 2013 Giver

I was very excited to wake up this morning to an email letting me know I'd been chosen as a Giver for World Book Day 2013. Here is the book I'll be giving away on or around 23 April this year to people who may be non-readers or light readers to encourage them to become more involved in the wonderful worlds that books can transport readers into.

This wasn't my first choice, but I've heard about Red Dust Road and look forward to reading it and introducing it to others.

Ten Today!

It's the smallest member of the family's birthday today and he's 10!

We've just arrived home from a lovely, sunny walk with Grumps on Grouville beach. I say walk, but he spent most of his time running back and forth. He has daily walks on one of two beaches, but rarely at Grouville, so it must have been very exciting for him to go back there again.

Here's another picture to show you a little bit more of the beach and Gorey Harbour with Mont Orgueil Castle (known to us as Gorey Castle) in the background.

Editing in Lousy Weather

I don't know about you, but I find it much easier to edit when the weather is miserable. There's no temptation for me to venture outside when it's windy, raining and cold, which is exactly what the weather's been like here in Jersey for most of the past few weeks.

On the other hand, I can't wait for Spring to arrive when I can get out and about and enjoy a little heat and some colour in the garden.

So, while we're waiting, I thought I'd post a picture of he Amaryllis flowers that are cheering me up as I edit.

Do you have a favourite time of year for editing?

Roll on Spring...
