A comment on yesterday’s blog. No, we did not eat mice pies, do not believe everything you read. Actually the only difference between a mince pie and a mice pie is that in a mice pie you leave the ‘n’ out of the mix.
More craft yesterday, more swimming, more cartoons and a new game that involved painting with dinosaur feet and heads and then scrubbing them clean. Actually the dinosaur footprints on the mirror glass tiles look very cool.
I heard a wee while ago that there has been a hot air balloon tragedy in central New Zealand this morning. Eleven people have died in the basket of a hot air balloon. It caught fire and was just a wall of flame when it hit the ground. My heartfelt sympathy to all and the families, what a tragic thing to happen on a glorious Summer morning in a part of the country well-known for hot air ballooning. My Dad always used to say, ‘if you’re going up in the air, have wings and an engine.’ I have to admit you couldn’t pay me enough money to try a hot air balloon. I suffer from vertigo and that includes cable cars and ski lifts as well.
I woke up to a lovely surprise. A website called “Books 2 Heart” has an author feature home page. Look who it is today!! (and tell your friends)
I have also been asked to do a guest blog on a well-known book blog, Katheryn Lane. I shall include a link to it when it’s up. It will be about ‘The Secret Keeper.’
Downloads are at around 12,700 combined and it will be four months on Monday. I have created the cover for the next book and am making steady progress (a little slow when I have tiny people around as well).
