Hello Style Noters – please welcome our new comrades, joining us on here from my Seven Days of Positive blog.
I started that one as an experiment (you can read about it in my previous post on here), but then found I like doing it so much, I’ve now found myself at Day 69, having posted every day (except one).
Even though it’s sometimes pretty mundane, sitting at my computer to reflect for a few minutes, finding the positive things which have happened every day is very good for the soul.
The only problem is that it left me no time to write anything on here, so the time has come to meld the two blogs into one.
Eventually it will all be integrated back into my original website, which is being revamped and revved up, but in the meantime I will post my Seven Days daily report on here.
So Day 69… I saw this dog in the car park at Sainsburys.
Today was Stir Up Tuesday, because I wasn’t organised to do Stir Up Sunday at the weekend, so I caught up this evening.
I called my daughter to come down to help, but she said she had to do Facetime with Grace instead. Grace who she has spent all day at school with.
Made perfect sense to me. When I was a little older (twelve is the new fourteen) I would spend all day at school with my best friend Jane, speak to her for an hour on the phone when I got home and then meet her by the phone box after dinner.
Peggy came down at the last stage to do her stir and make a wish though.
The pudding is now resting in the bowl overnight to be boiled for five hours tomorrow. Then boiled again and not really eaten on Christmas Day, but it doesn’t matter. It still has to be made.
I used a Delia Smith recipe after reading this article in the Telegraph at the weekend. I don’t like the idea of a pale Christmas pudding at all.
Just now I had a Skype call with my publisher in Sydney about my new book. It was all very very exciting. It’s coming out at the end of April and I will soon have a cover I can share.
I’m slightly beside myself.
