Happy 2013 to all my readers! How’s it been going for you so far? Good, I hope, because we don’t want it any other way, do we?
A short but sweet blog this week as I wanted to keep you up to date with happenings here at Misfit House.
My year has certainly started in the right way and long may it continue. Our New Year’s Eve was spent in the company of close friends, drinking champers, eating and taking part in a quiz. Oh, and teaching a puppy to dance Pudsey-style but that’s a whole different story and no, there are no pictures!
And on the back of my Daily Mail article, I was offered two radio interviews. The first was for Talk Radio Europe and it was recorded today ready to go on air tomorrow (Thursday 3rd January) at 6pm and repeated on Sunday 6th January at 9pm - you can eventually listen to it here.
The second will be going out LIVE at 3pm (eek!) on BBC Radio London 94.9 this coming Friday 5th on the Jo Good show. The producer has told me that I’ll also be taking calls from listeners, so I fully expect to be ripped to shreds, but I welcome the chance to defend myself and my son. Bring it on! I’m also looking forward to a visit to the BBC studios - exciting times! You can tune in on the radio or online here.
So, all in all, a positive start to my new year. BOOK SIX is planned and ready to be started next week. I’m thoroughly looking forward to getting back to some sort of routine and knuckling down to get that first draft out. The characters are ready and the stage is set - all that’s needed is for me to say ‘Curtain Up!’ And that may give you a slight clue to the book’s content. ‘Nuff said!
So, New Year’s resolutions? Nah! I never bother because I don’t believe in them. Although I've kind of been forced into one. My goddaughter reminded me that we’d made a vow (three years ago) to have our hair permed on my 50th birthday (February 2014) so this year’s challenge is to grow my hair! Hubbie is NOT happy - he likes the bob too much but a godmother never goes back on a promise.
Wish me luck as I head off to my interview and, if any of you fancy ringing in, it would be great to hear a friendly voice.
I wish you all a happy and healthy 2013
