I had a lovely Christmas and New Year with family and friends. In fact, I felt extremely lucky, as I know that due to the weather, many people were without electricity and heating over Christmas. Not to mention the homeless and those without family and good friends. I felt surrounded by affection and humour, which feeds the soul 🙂
I’m feeling positive about 2014! Last year was difficult for me: I’d had a couple of things turned down, and felt de-motivated. BUT – I have started the year with a new Positive Mental Attitude and a brand new book idea! I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of this particular idea before. Maybe I just didn’t have the confidence, but it’s something I know I’ll adore writing, and I’m already bashing through the chapter breakdowns, which is VERY satisfying.
Before Christmas, I did a whole host of crafty posts on Girls Heart Books, all activities that you can do at home, some with kids. They’re Christmas-themed, but many of them you can do any time: I can particularly recommend the microwave fudge! And I leave you with this photo of the ice candles that I made and used to adorn our New Year’s Eve party table 🙂
Happy New Year to all my readers, and don’t forget – LOOKING AT THE STARS is out in FOUR WEEKS!!
