Somehow, even though I'm the most ungreenfingered person I know, I've managed to grow some potatoes in the garden. They are from some potatoes my grandad had prepared at his allotment shed when he passed away. It's rather lovely to finish something he started.

I've also inherited lots of seeds ready for next year when I plan to try and get the rest of the garden sorted.

For the next few weeks the blog will be a bit quiet whilst I get stuck into more DIY and sorting some other non-writing related things out. I'll be back as soon as it's all done with photos of what I've been up to!

Take care whilst I'm away!

A trip to the Little, Brown offices...

Today I'm over on The Romaniac's blog interviewing Vanessa Greene about her debut novel. I got to have a sneeky peek in the Little, Brown offices so find out more about the book and my visit over on The Romaniacs.

Going down to Margate!

I'm just back from a week staying at my mum's place in Margate where the sun did shine for some of the time.

Westbrook Bay
It was nice to have a break with my husband, Dan and it was lovely to spend the time with family. Especially this member of the family:
The family dog, Jasper got most of the attention as he'd just had a cancerous lump removed from his leg a couple of days before we arrived. I was expecting him to be feeling rather sorry for himself, but he was his usual boistrous self. He was very good and was allowed the collar off when we were about as he hasn't been fussing over his wound. However, he did have to have it on when we went out and here he is being obedient (for a change) and letting us put it on. By the end of the week, he would just pop his head into it. What a well behaved dog he can be. Although my mum would like to advance his training to making cups of tea and closing doors behind him. Don't think she's going to have much luck there!

Now, time to get back to writing! (This counts, right?)
