I said it with flowers. Sometimes formal isn’t best, though. These country flowers smell great and cheer up a table and the home it’s in. Many of the clipped foliage in the vase could be counted as weeds. There are even grasses, for goodness sake. That doesn’t mean to say they’re less valuable, in my opinion…
Nature does a grand job of raising a smile through the rich tapestry of flora it provides. Or is it God giving the free gift of a sweet aroma for all?
Either way, don’t forget to smell the roses.
I’ve been treated!Honestly, this pudding was delicious. Not with clotted cream but hey. The main was more healthy with moules Thai style. That was very tasty. There were frites alongsite, so quite calorific and definitely not free! I was in a city swanky restaurant recently.
What are basic comfort foods, I wonder? I’ll need to add that answer to my protagonist profile so that I might use it…This helps when #Amwriting… Strawberries or raspberries help me too.
My heartfelt thanks go to Valicity Garris who posted a marvellous review of ‘What If I Go?’ 20 DAYS AGO!
Please see under ‘honest and emotional’ http://www.therebelchristian.com/book-reviews/
Sorry, I’m so late giving my heartfelt thanks. Put it down to a crazy, heat haze that’s just clearing. However, I do really appreciate the time of reviewers amongst their busy schedule.
All good things go to those who wait…
I am sooooo happy! Not bad for a debut? Please go ahead and check the novel out for your friends and family.
Also, please visit Valicity for more sound advice.
We are enjoying a heat wave! Paddling pools and hose pipes out for slippy slides are essential. I got this henna tattoo on my foot to celebrate. Take a book to the festival for when you’re exhausted from dancing. Glastonbury is this weekend. Yay!
Sun cream and plenty of water to drink, too. Have fun in the sun:)
Hello! Sorry, I was quiet because we went on a family seaside holiday. Yay!!
As well as a huge Atlantic wind that blew the cobwebs away (our UV tent turned inside out!) we found a sheltered spot to catch some welcome rays. Talking of which, Devon has many jelly fish so take your beach shoes. The surfing was magnificent btw… So, it looked! I stuck to paddling in rock pools, mostly. Haha!
We took time to find beauty in the small things. Alongside the rough seas with powerful waves were these countless colourful jewels. What a blessing our coastline offers free for the enjoyment. The odd crab salad and strawberry cream tea brought smiles to our faces, too. Cornish ice cream is made with clotted cream…
Now the diet resumes. The indulgence was worth it:)
Well, I’ve dodged the showers and gone down to vote. What a job the next government have to do!
Don’t forget to mark your cross…
Today I edited a short story. At the moment, I couldn’t write the news. Are we in for a shock tomorrow? We’ll soon see.
The world will keep spinning and the
rain will continue to
fall and the
We are truly blessed.
Let’s continue to count our blessings.
Keep on keeping on.
Our countryside is blooming after the rain. These lilies are amazing. However, some things aren’t improving despite best efforts. Let’s stay vigil and keep trying to raise awareness of dangers. Sadly this was among this weeks news alongside terrorist activity.
Raising awareness and interrupting this activity is key. Standing together in love is the answer. What If I Go? attempts cultural cohesion. Please would you download a copy of my book for a friend?
I found this on Pinterest and agree whole heartily with the creator.
I am grateful for your time to help me spread the word on keeping safe. Please encourage summer reading for students. They matter. I wrote What If I Go? as a heads up on the signs of grooming and violent controlling behaviour. Let’s help stop the perpetrators?
I trust your bank holiday was fun and as productive like mine. See where I was made most welcome as a guest author here-
Our family cooked on the BBQ and did some healthy eating, mostly! This amazing book cover on an icing sheet was ordered online, when the book first came out. I sent some of that cake to a friend through the post. Unfortunately, there was no pattern remaining when it arrived so she was a little bamboozled! Haha! You can but try to spread the love.
After a stormy start the sun is shining on my novel. I am very happy to have had some valuable coverage on The Story Reading Ape’s Blog. Chris has been most generous to include me as his guest author. Authors, join me on this sociable book site? See my inclusion over the bank holiday, below-
Chris has made it easier for me to raise awareness of actual crime happening on the UK’s streets. Let’s disrupt the predatory grooming of young women by empowering them to spot the signs. I appreciate your help. See what I mean in local paper this weekend-
