Half way through May already – News Update

IMG_2861 (002)

May has been a busy month and I can’t believe that we are over half-way into it already. In the first week of May I was in Chester ,visiting family, and we took a trip out to Llandudno to a National Trust property, Bodnant Gardens. The above photograph of rhododendrons was taken there. Aren’t they just delightful? I would recommend a visit to Bodnant Gardens if you can get there.

No sooner home and my American cousin who I hadn’t seen since I was five-years-old was arriving to stay one night only. We visited Hever Castle to see a May Day festival. Nothing like a bit of traditional England to show off to the American relatives.

We had a lovely time  and the weather was gorgeous (sunshine ordered specifically for my cousin) and we rounded up the day with a drink outside a country pub that sits right outside Hever Castle and then onto a country pub restaurant in Copthorne. We all had a delightful time.

The following week my cousin returned and I took her for a stroll around my local lake where new Canada goslings and baby moorhens have been born.

We finished off our time at the local theatre watching the Marc Bolan Musical – Twentieth Century Boy. Definitely worth going if it comes near you. The talent on the stage was exceptional. The following morning my cousin returned to Heathrow to catch her plane to the States. We only had a short time together but managed to cram in lots of lovely things as well as fifty-eight years of catch-up news.

So as you can see I’ve been quite busy leaving little time for writing, although that doesn’t mean I haven’t been writing because I have. I’ve been working on The Coal Miner’s Son and shortly I hope to make public the opening chapters and reveal the cover. So watch this space.

What else is happening?

Well come Monday I need to get back to my MA dissertation and my lovely topic Fairy and Forestry Folklore and The English Yew who is my narrator for a collection of poetry.

What else is happening?

Well you remember I promised you some guest features?

Watch out tomorrow
