Snowy Sheepwash and beautiful baby news
8 March 2018

Well I missed the worst of the snow last week - did you? But turns out I had a nasty surprise when I got back to Devon on Sunday night - a burst pipe! Eeek! Pics will be on my new QVC blog on Friday but suffice to say it was a lot of work and a collapsed ceiling. Boo. Not as bad as some though so I won't moan. Here's a pic of the lovely snowy scene outside in the square, sent to me by Mary my mate.

In London all was well, basically. I went along to see my lovely son Brad who was 31 last week (no idea how that happened! Where have the years gone!) And have some cuddles with cute little Blake, who is now 6 weeks.

Looking forward to Mother's Day on Sunday as it'll be my first 'grandmother's day' too! And Brad's birthday meal. Yay! Plus I'll get to see Lauren - who is... wait for it ... having a baby in September! Yahoooo! Two grandkiddies by Christmas - aren't I the lucky one!

The other thing I've been discussing this week is Four in a Bed, the Ch 4 series about bed and breakfasts. I was asked to do it but I can't due to my QVC commitments, but it would have been fun! I'd have done it with Sheena, my mate down here in Devon with whom I go on adventures, but never mind. Instead we went to a painting class this week - the first in yonks. 41 yonks in fact! Eeek! It's amazing how everyone's pics differed - here we all are down at the Cranford Inn near Torrington. Not bad for a first effort, but hopefully the next one next month will be better!

Book of the week is actually a couple this week! Well done to my mentor Julie Cohen for winning the best Contemporary Romantic Novel with 'Together' - a truly thought provoking read. Plus Jane Lovering - another one of my top authors - won one of her categories - she had two nominations, and they're both on my book of the week review! If you like recommendations that win awards, try these books. Go here to read my RiWiSi review blog.

RNA Magazine Mention. Retreats for You got a mention too from the RNA in their latest Romance Matters magazine, with a feature on my taking over the retreat and trying to do my own writing here! Thanks to Adrienne Vaughan for the feature. I'll be running a competition later in the year to win a free stay, so do watch out for it. PLUS the latest newsletter for RFY has just gone out - go to the blog post to read it all and find out about the latest retreat offers!
