Hello there, lovely followers-I hope that you’re all well 😊
I have been absent for – wow- a whole month – looking at the date of my last blogpost!😲
So, what have I and the Kids of Kernow been up to?
In all honesty I think that Mossy has been a lot busier than me!😆
She has been consistently posting about kindness everyday on Instagram & her FB page as part of her 100 days of kindness!❤️🔥
Have you caught any of her posts? I think it’s day 46 today! I wonder what kindness she’ll share with us all today?
For my part- I’ve been being kind to myself & actually took some time off from promoting the books, drawing the map for Book 3, admin, finding more stockists, doing accounts etc etc. I suddenly realised that when I worked in schools I had time off at half- terms etc & yet since I’ve become an Author – I just keep going & going! 🤣🤣🤣
I was supported by storm Eunice leaving us with no electricity on Friday ( blogpost days) 18th February & the following Friday was my birthday & surely it’s illegal to work on your birthday🎈🎈🎈
In fact, I wasn’t even here!
Instead, I went back to where I was born (& moved away from when only 14 months old!) Cuckfield, near Haywards Heath, West Sussex.
I had a wonderful few days away with my lovely hubby- going back to my roots, visiting friends and to re-charge my inner child…..visiting Pooh corner & 100 hundred acre wood!
I even played Pooh sticks on THE original bridge!
You can see how made up I was!!
I think my inner child is definitely alive & kicking in these photos! 🤣🤣🤣
Last week- I was all ready to get back to work when I just felt frozen by the awful events in Ukraine and really couldn’t see the point in promoting a couple of children’s books….
In the grand scheme of things – it felt pathetic to even try!🙍
On top of that- how could I promote a book, asking £5.99, for what may now seem a luxury to many, when people are having to choose between food or fuel.
I must admit I went into somewhat of a downward spiral and like I say, became frozen into non-action.
Until- a lovely friend gave me a telling off saying that the messages in the books are probably more needed now than ever before – helping children to master their own thoughts & emotions to help them deal with anxiety/ fear/ uncertainty and worry about the future.
So, the first thing I did – to buck myself up, really, was to create a new webpage re reviews for Book 2 that have been coming in!📙
Please check these out & I’d love to hear from your good selves with any reviews of your own, please🙏
( For either book 1 or 2- all would be very gratefully received)
Either comment on this blogpost with your review/s or contact me here.
Here’s to happier times for us all!
