The people that can

Yesterday I met an amazing group of people. I felt like I already knew several of them from their blogs and Sunday morning chats but they were even lovelier in person. It was great to look forward to a day out and have it turn out even better than I could have expected. None of them were rabbits I hasten to add, in case the picture is confusing you. These are Honey and Humbug, mid destruction as is their way. Honey likes to pose for the camera, Humbug just likes to eat as much magazine as possible before it's taken off her. Paper is the poor relation of cables, furniture and loose plaster when it comes to snacking.

My revolting cold has kept me off work and I just hope I didn't infect anyone yesterday! I managed to do a a fair bit of talking despite the dreaded gunge doing its best to remove my voice. Listening to everyone's enthusiasm for their writing was a real buzz and I can't wait to see the stories and novels they produce. Being around other writers is always the best incentive to get on with my editing as well. It's taken me far too many years to write this novel and it's time it got out there.

Honey and Humbug are gorgeous. Is Honey jealous not to have a blog named after her?!

Hope the cold shifts soon. And no you didn't infect me:-)

It was lovely to meet you. Have you seen the group photo on the Wannabe a writer Facebook group?

I think I may need to add more pictures of Honey to placate her...

The doctor says I have a sinus infection which is a lot less contagious so you should all be safe!

Yes, I saw the picture but I had to register for facebook to see it. Husband highly amused that I've joined!
