I have great news for you all. My new book is out. It’s a collection of short stories called Always Never, Rarely Sometimes and I’m so happy to be able to tell you all about it. Like with Illusions, Delusions, there are seven stories but this time the focus is on more traditional storytelling with a slight twist.
Read about a regular boy named Harry Potter whose life changes overnight when the literary character becomes a phenomenon. Or about a middle aged lady who goes for quiet coffee and gets more than she bargained for when she spots a group of four friends. Not forgetting the story about an unhappy child’s Christmas being changed thanks to a very surprising encounter. And there’s plenty more 😀
The striking 60m Giant Observation Wheel at the seaonal festive attraction, Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. I’ve always liked ferris wheels and included previous efforts in my blog. This is the one from Leicester Square, and the two from Vienna are here and here.
Along with socks, slippers and chocolate, one of the traditions of Christmas is a novelty Christmas jumper. It is after all a great way to make a distinctive appearance, as Mark Darcey made with his festive Rudolph effort to Bridget Jones. After reading a post on the BBC website I decided to choose eight of the most distinctive Christmas sweaters from the Premier League. Do you have a favourite of the eight below? Did you receive anything similar from your presents?
