It’s been a week of ups and downs. The Colchester Christmas Fayre was fairly unproductive – I learnt that people wanted cheap and cheerful, but not hand made things with precious stones; all of my children’s things went very well, but the adult bits were nearly untouched. Ah well, there’s always the Oyster Fayre.
To cheer things up, I went out to dinner with friends, only to have the worst dining experience since Denny’s in Hawaii didn’t serve what I ordered (and I got old rubber chicken). All I’ll say is don’t waste your time at Pasha’s in Colchester – even the olives were dire and more chewy than that rubber chicken previously mentioned. We left the restaurant hungry and went to finish our meal in Manningtree (the chocolate monster saves the day again – thank you Julie at The Crown for such a yummy invention).
Yet, with every cloud…
I’m now very proud to say that I’m part of the on-line sensation knowonder! magazine (www.knowonder.com). Part of the permanent writing team, I’ll be sending them three children’s stories a month – I’ve got a few in the pipeline, but I’m very happy that my writing will reach a wider audience.
Must dash, have some writing to do :)
