Is it really less than six weeks to Christmas??

2015 What a Year so far...

2015 has been such an unexpected whirlwind year for me and my family. The year has flown by. It seems ages since I’ve written a blog post that isn’t a book review. So I thought, I would recap on my year  so far, as I have a few moments.

The year started quietly enough, I was hoping to finish writing my fourth novel and looking for a home for my third.  Then everything changed. My lovely daughter told me she was expecting a baby. As she lives with us that meant drastic home renovations before our lovely new arrival. Fortunately for us, my husband is a renovation superstar and everything in our house was reconfigured a month before our little grandson arrived.

Although  I have painted virtually the whole house, painting the nursery was definitely my favourite job.


My grandson Arthur Daniel, who Megan my daughter, named after her maternal grandfather and brother, arrived on 28 October 2015. I was my daughter’s birth partner. Seeing my grandson born was so special and witnessing my daughter’s courage and determination, one of the most poignant memories of my life.  

Having a baby in the house again is great,  I feel like, I have a new lease of life and I am looking forward to seeing him grow and develop in the coming months and years.

Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas Jumper

Next week on my blog I will have reviews on Christmas books from Harper Impulse: A Miracle at Macy’s  by Lynn Marie Hulsman and Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas Jumper by Debbie Johnson. As my favourite season of the year draws closer I will be sharing  more Christmas book reviews and some Christmas inspired posts too. With our new arrival, Christmas will be extra special for my family this year.
