Sometimes, as Lynne Hackles often writes in her column in the writing magazine, having a break from writing can be beneficial. We recently had a week in Devon. Here we are in Torquay, waiting for someone special to come along.
Me and our eldest son share a January birthday, so we had a meal out as a double celebration.
Yes I know there are shadows on both the pictures, that’s so we can both be in the picture at the same time…
How lovely to wake up and see seals playing in the sea. In the local paper there was someone who had snapped a dog chasing the seals. They seem quite tame. I’m sure they like people.
I’m working on stories for competitions at the moment, and reading a lot. The book I’ve just finished is body on the beach by Simon Brett, a Feathering mystery for Carole and Jude. Also, Footsteps in the Dark, by Georgette Heyer. Another mystery, and I’ll be reading more of her books. I also read The Adventuress, one of M.C. Beaton’s. and Emily goes to Exeter, m.c. again. You might say I’m a big fan of M.C. Beaton. I’m now off to read A Highland Christmas, one of the Hamish McBeth ones. Keep warm, and see you soon.
