Wet . . .

So how's the weather where you are? I'm thinking of building an ark, we have had so much rain. As soon as they mentioned a drought and put out a hosepipe ban for nthis part of the country, the rain started - and came down, and down, and down . . .
We had two water barrels to collect rainwater - they both filled up. We added a third on the side of the new kitchen  . . .that has  overflowed twice. We've  drained off water, poured it over flowerbeds - in the beginning. Now those beds are soaked,  looking like bogs.  There's nowhere else to put the water - and still the rain keeps falling.

And I don 't even want to think about the forecast for the weekend! Rain , rain and more rain.
Oh well, as the saying goes, it's lovely weather for ducks. And when we were in   York  earlier in the week there were seem really happy ducks and geese by the river who proved that  to be true.

So wherever you are I hope you're a little drier  - unless you need the rain too! Well, we did but I think now we could do with a break - just a little one!

So it's the perfect time for staying in and working and one of the things I've been doing  is sorting out my web site, getting it up to date.

One of the things I need to make all the details are correct for is the day lon workshop I have coming up next month - May 19th  - in Nottingham.  

So for anyone  who might be interested, here are those details again -

  • Date: 19th May 2012

  • Time: 10am - 4pm (including an hour for lunch and tea and coffee breaks)

  • Location:

  • The Nottingham Mechanics
    3 North Sherwood Street
    NG1 4EZ

  • Cost: £20

  • Information on booking can be found  here:

    I checked with the organisers earlier this week and tickets are selling well with many places booked already.  There are a few still left though  - so if you're interested in coming along, I should get your booking organised  asap  so you  don't miss out.
    Oh - and  one thing the weather can't dampen is mydelight in seeing the USA edition of The Devil and Miss Jones  flying high on the Booktrack Top 100 list  of bestselling fiction.   That made me feel as if the sun had come out.
    My thanks to everyone who bought a copy to put my book on there.

    Yup - wet it is - everywhere I think.

    Downloaded "The Devil and Miss Jones" onto my Kindle last night - so I'm off for an early night for a readfest! ;o) Caroline x
