About Me

My photo
Hi, welcome to my blog, I am a writer of short stories, children's and YA novels . An acceptance from People's Friend finally made me a published writer! Yeah, happy days! I have since had stories published in The Weekly News and The Last Laugh anthology. My main love is writing children's/YA novels...I'm now enduring a fruitless search for an agent... I also draw and paint, I like to draw animals (usually my adorable crazy cats!)Occasionally famous people and motorcycles.

It hasn't rained for six days, shh!

I know, don't jinx it!
I love the sunshine, I'd forgotten what it looked like. I really hope we have a good summer, but at the moment I'm happy just to see some sunshine, even if it is still cold. I ventured out in short sleeves on Saturday, gosh I did feel brave. It's weird baring skin after months covering up ( I'm only talking arms here, nothing too outrageous)
I hope the weather's good where you are too!
I should just say Thank you to Gail who has kindly awarded my the Stylish Blogger, I know I should really think of another seven things to reveal about myself, but you'll have to make do with my arms for now (sorry no picture of white arms, you can use your imaginations). I'll have to have a think...
I have done absolutley nothing these last few weeks, except getting a tad obsessed with ebay. I've wasted hours and hours looking for stuff I really don't need. Sigh.
Anyway, have a great day, I'm just going to catch up with you all!


  1. Hi Pen & Paints
    Couldn't agree more about the sunshine ... haven't been as brave as you re exposing arms, but love it, nonetheless ... sadly tomorrow onwards doesn't look so good? Know what you mean about E-bay, too - it's a black hole sometimes :-)
    Congrats on the award!
    All best

  2. Penandpaints!!! You hussy with your bare arms!!! LOL!!!! Didn't the weather look like it was going to break this morning!!??! I grabbed my waterproofs and brolly and now the sun is blazing away!!!!

    Anyway - do not SPEAK to me about ebay!! I got outbid-ded yesterday in the last 20 minutes of my bid. I was the only one bidding too. I was most annoyed!!! LOL!! I was cursing how some people could be so SNEAKY!!!Then after I calmed down I then thought - what on earth was I doing bidding on a bag I really don't need...?? :-)

    Have a great Monday!!!! Congrat with your fab award! Take care

  3. Ebay is so addictive! I think I've broken the habit of browing for unnecessary items, but there was a spell when I was on there every day. I'd think that I'd just have a quick look, then you start watching items to see how much people bid, and it's all downhill from there!

    Yes this sunshine is great. So nice to be warm and not bundled up in layers of clothes. Another couple of weeks of this would be perfect.

  4. I know - I can't believe how wonderfully gorgeous it is outside! Yay Spring!

  5. Well, I'm very glad to say I haven't yet ventured on to ebay! Maybe i shouldn't ahve put that'yet' - but blogs and forums are more than enough distraction for now.

    Isn't it lovely to have the promise of spring now, even though it's dull and overcast here.

  6. Its quite hot here too (in India). Bare arms are all over. :)

  7. I've had to ban myself from going on e-bay, it's the only way I can stop myself spending :0(

    We've had lots of rain over the past few weeks, but shouldn't complain because that's why Scotland's so green. And it's better than the snow whe had over the never ending winter.

    Congratultaions on the award. I've done a post at last accepting the award you gave me. Sorry - meant to do it ages ago, but don't know where the time's gone.


  8. Congratulations on your award! We are in Galicia (Spain) right now, enjoying warm sunny days here, too. It's so welcome after all the recent rain in Sacramento!

  9. Thank you all. I'm still addicted to ebay. I'm losing many an hour...


I appreciate all your comments, thank you!
