Happy New Year

Yes, I know this is a bit late but I’ve been busy. I’m working on a new book series – about a group of girls who have lots of disasters – does it sound familiar?! It’s not a new Emily Sparkes series but I can’t help writing about calamities, they make me laugh. Like, just before Christmas when I drove into town especially early to do some last minute shopping before the crowds. I rushed around getting all the bits on my list and when I got back to the car I realised I had a flat tyre! I had to pump it up, then I was so flustered I forgot to pay for the carpark and had to reverse back from the exit barrier, causing chaos for everyone behind me as they all had to reverse as well! Luckily, my daughters weren’t with me (they would never get up that early in the holidays!) or they’d have been crawling under the seats in embarassment. But it was pretty funny looking back on it – and might have to make it’s way into a book…

So let’s hope the New Year is less embarrassing and lots more fun!
