Out and About



My recent travels haven't been restricted to places we've visited in the van, I've been wandering around the internet too. I popped into Cafelit to tell them a story before chatting to Linda Parkinson-Hardman about my writing. After that I went over to visit Pauline Wiles.

Just to prove some work gets done on our trips here's a picture of my husband doing his thing (a photo of me at the laptop isn't nearly so dramatic!)

I've also been off in search of competitions. This monthly one is tempting as they only want 300 words and offer a $50 Amazon voucher. This one is possibly even more so as just one line is required and the prize is £100. More words are required for this one (up to 4,000) but the prize is £3,500 so it's worth making the effort.

  1. Is that as precarious as it looks, Patsy? I've got the wobblies just looking at that ledge he's standing on!!

    1. It's a strong bit of rock, but yes it really was jutting out over the sea like that, Teresa.

    1. He kept a firm grip on his tripod, Wendy. This was taken at Tintagel castle.

  8. That picture is very clever, it certainly looks like your hubby is tottering on the edge of a cliff! Glad you are out and about enjoying the nice weather.

    1. He really was, Suzanne - the bit he was standing on was part of a huge lump of rock though so there was little chance of it giving way.

    1. Yeah, Oscar his hair colour matches the rock! Er, I mean yeah, he's strong and rugged just like the rock. Phew, think I got away with that.
