Well, I am feeling very relieved, nervous, excited and proud. Yes, 'GRANNY DOES KARATE' is now at the printer. While it is exciting, it's also scary, as I worry in case they were sent the wrong file, or I have missed a major mistake during editing. Fingers crossed for me that all will be well. I've been busy writing out invoices for all the books that have been pre ordered.
We've had our first few nights away in the new caravan, and Rosie loved it. Here she is relaxing in her new bed, and doing what she does best. Sleeping!
I've been busy talking to teachers, and starting to make plans for the next two terms. I have a few school visits coming up close to home which I'm looking forward to, then I am heading down to the South Island for Duffy Books role model assemblies. I bet you remember how much I love being involved with Duffys. We get to meet so many fabulous kids and also their wonderful teachers. I can't get Les to stay home these days either.
Let us in quickly I am freezing.
WORD OF THE MOMENT
dollop - What do you like a dollop of on your apple pie?
Don't forget to send me writing if you have some you're proud of. Today I have added a great piece of writing by Julia from Auckland, and also some 'jackiwa' poems by some children at Kihikihi Primary School. Take a look and read their fabulous work here. I love hearing from you, and every week I get emails from kids all around the country. Who knows, maybe this year is when we'll get to meet one another if we haven't already been so lucky.
Keep on writing and keep smiling.
