I found a box of birthday cards from family and friends and remembered that I’ve been well loved over the years.
I met an apricot-coloured kitten the day before yesterday. She’s new in my village and I think she’s probably a Christmas kitten. She looks like a teenager now. She met me when I was walking home. She pranced out of a garden and followed my down the road, mewing, wanting to play. She met me again yesterday. She poked her head through the bars of a garden gate like a princess looking out of a castle window. She pranced into the road and popped her pretty face out from under a car. I’m not a cat girl and I prefer tabbies to gingers, anyway, but an apricot-coloured kitten may steal my heart.
The early season for salad is here and suddenly there are lettuces and tomatoes, radishes and onions, cucumbers and peppers to eat!
Someone asked if I’m going to be writing and publishing any more books now that I’ve finished my degree. It’s a good question! I think I’ll always be a storyteller, but I don’t think I’ll always be an author and / or a publisher. I may be wrong, but these are my thoughts at the moment. I published The Abolitionist in early 2012. There are three books that I’ve been writing since late 2012 and throughout 2013. I’d love to share them with you in 2014, but I’m just taking a bit of time to catch my breath after my degree, so I’m not promising anything yet. Watch this space …
My family’s apple trees are bursting into blossom and the beauty and delicacy of the greens and pinks and whites are stunning.
Do you have any everyday stories to share?
