How’s your year been so far?
seems to be flying by.The weather has
been kind to us in our region and, while snowdrops are peeping out, some
flowers have managed to hang on through the winter so far.I don’t want to be too complacent, as winter
proper didn’t start until early spring and continue until early summer!
beautiful Yorkshire this week
Cow and Calf rocks at Ilkley this week
have eaten out more this month than in the previous three.Enjoyable it may be, but not good for the
figure.Tried out a recently opened
local cafe or, as they call it, a Victorian tearoom.Great scones served with jam and cream. Named Mrs Gale's after the owner's wife who died from cancer, a percentage of the profits will go to cancer research.
Read:Jeanette Winterson’s autobiography Why be happy when you could be normal? I had already read Oranges are not the only fruit a long time ago and it was interesting
to compare the fiction with the non-fiction.
Written:I have had two short stories accepted (and
two rejected) so far this year and read out a piece of non-fiction on Village
Greens on local radio.
