Merry Christmas and Happy New Year…

2012-12-20 08.45.45Christmas is only days away, the presents are wrapped and under the tree, cards sent and many lovely messages received.

The turkey is cooked and sliced ready to take Christmas day to our family.

I wish all my family, friends, fellow writers, blog followers and those wonderful people I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing, reading their books and reviewing, a very happy Christmas. 2013-12-08 13.02.06

This year family commitments with two beautiful grand daughters and big celebration for husbands milestone birthday, my writing goals not getting the full attention they deserve.

I say that and reflect on the fact that I have continued to read and review books, written a diary for our cruise, and posted many interesting tit bits on my blog. I’ve also had my draft of Vashla’s World proof read wonderfully by the critical eye of Flavia Young. I’ve written some short stories and had one published on the ABC Open page.

My Christmas letter was nine pages this year because we had done so much. Two trips away, the first to Canberra and the second on the Cruise around Norfolk Island, Tonga and Fiji, made the year cram filled of delightful experiences.

I thank everyone for your support of my jottings throughout 2013, and wish you all a fantastic and safe festive season. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

      Hi Marion,
      Glad you like my ramblings, I’m applying for a Feature Writer position with Kelly Anne McLean for a new newsletter Aust Book Reviews, if she accepts it I’ll get paid $100 per review (now that would be something)
