I had two great pieces of news last week. One, the editor and reviewer of an Arts Magazine, contacted me to say how much she enjoyed The Bluebird Brooch, so I can’t wait to read the review.
The second was that a piece which I wrote for my writing group, I also submitted to the Parish Magazine. Not only was it immediately accepted, they also had it professionally illustrated. Wow! I was blown over and as it was based on a true story, so were the family. There is a third page so it’s not the complete story. Contact me if you would like a copy.
Another piece of good news is that I have set up a local book group. We have 6 possibly 7 members and had our first meeting last week with a list of books in the pipeline for us to read. As much as I love my book group back in Sussex. It’s not always possible to zoom. Next month, however, they are going to read The Bluebird Brooch, so I hope they enjoy it.
The final piece of good news is that my husband has new bluetooth hearing aids and can hear again. It’s like having my husband back after years of increasing frustration that he misses so much. I am so thankful for our local NHS. They are amazing. Now I have to set up an iphone and he will be able to use the phone gain without swearing. Yay!
