This afternoon I was sorting through some of my books for the children staying at our gite this week, who, bless their hearts, have become great fans of my writing! I came across a stash of bookmarks that went with some of the books. If there was spare cover cardstock in, the publishers would get the printers to run off some bookmarks to use it up. And here they are, a little souvenir of my glory days as a popular children’s author in Ireland!

I hope you’ll forgive the self-indulgence. It’s been a heavy week this week and it hasn’t ended well with us losing little Bertie last night. But that’s all part of keeping animals – you get the tragedies as well as the rewards …

Back to happier posts as soon as possible!
