Northern Ireland Book Award... and shoes.

Next week I'm off to Northern Ireland to 
promote the publication of my first fiction 
The Brilliant World Of Tom Gates. 
I've also been asked to announce the winner for the 
Northern Ireland Book Award. 

I'm very excited! (I don't get out much.)
GOOD LUCK  to all the authors. It's a fantastic book list.

I'm thinking that I should celebrate the publication of Tom Gates in same way Jacqueline Wilson does. She buys herself a piece of jewelry for every book. How about I get a pair of shoes..(and a handbag..and maybe some earrings?)Might have to settle for something a little less pricey.

Nice though aren't they?

Sun and mice are out...

Hey look what I found on the steps to my shed.
Cute, as long as it's not actually a small rat?
Not sure. It didn't seem very concerned about
me approaching it. Enjoying the sun I think.
(For now.)

Some days I really love my job... 
(This is actually work, honestly.)
Introducing The Bodge Brothers
(Who are rubbish at everything.)
They will be appearing in Tom Gates
own Blog on a regular bases.

The Bodge Brothers (rubbish at everything.)

Pancake Day!

My sister gave me
this book when I was 
seven and I still
use it today.

Lovely drawings.
As you can see
it's worn well..

unlike me.

The EASIEST recipe EVER.
My sister has very fancy handwriting.
