I had a wonderful birthday this week waking up to a beautiful sunny day, with lots of thoughtful gifts ranging from a Kindle Fire HD, a bracelet, bouquets of flowers, a gorgeous lavender plant for my garden, a bottle of champagne, a cover with keyboard for my Kindle Fire (see pic), many beautiful birthday cards and a fun meal out with Rob and Sas. There was good news from my agent, who liked a book idea of mine, so I've now got my head down and am writing the first draft of my next book - very exciting.
It hasn't been an easy start to 2013 - being made redundant from a job I love, etc - but I now feel that there are only good things to come and together with the warmer, (hopefully) sunnier weather that's on it's way, life is looking a lot brighter now.
My books for World Book Night have arrived in the island and I'm going to collect these tomorrow and meet with a few other Givers to discuss their ideas for distributing the books.
Hope you have a sunny, happy weekend.
