Do you ever have those days when everything seems to go well? That happened for me on Tuesday. First of all I finished my revisions- coming up with a couple of additional scenes that had been lacking before- and I know made the book better. Then I went to the hairdresser and had a haircut I liked and that didn’t cost an arm and a leg. After I got home I watched Murray win his match, before going to the shops and buying some much needed clothes. (The only downside to the day were the mirrors in the shops. Where do they get them from? Honestly they make me look twice as big as I really am- or at least that’s what I tell myself.)
Once home, I spoke to both my girls on Skype,!always good to know they’re alive) and then finally, I logged on the Mills and Boon site and found a five star review of my latest book, Her Motherhood Wish. All in all a very good day. Isn’t it amazing how it can be the little things that make you happy? (I’d be even happier if I could work out how to get my photo in the right place)
I was reading in the Sunday Times supplement about women who are going to India in search of surrogates. Apparently there is quite a burgeoning industry there. I really feel for women who can’t conceive and as most people will know, I support and understand a woman’s need to have children, but is it fair to take advantage of women who desperately need money?
I was also astonished to read, in the same article, that a woman had been advised by her IVF specialist to have her baby delivered in a private hospital. At a cost of 35 000 pounds! (Surely I misread that figure.) That smacks even more of exploitation to me. Delivering in a NHS hospital is usually safer. What do you think?
Came back from walk feeling fluish and so have been doing pretty much nothing since last post except feeling sorry for myself.
Did have a lovely surprise from Modern author, India Knight today. She sent me a couple of books of hers (so I wouldn’t have to buy them- cos I told her I was intending to) plus a large bar of chocolate!
Why are romance writers always so generous?
Welcome to Anne Fraser’s blog! No doubt it will take time to get to grip with posting and editing- but if you can put up with my bound- to- be-messy first- attempts- I’d be amazingly grateful and awed.
But before I do anything else I need to clear my head. So a walk in the botanic gardens followed by lunch beckons!
