Mothers Day Lunch and a 'That Girl' excerpt

We had a lovely Mother’s Day celebration on Sunday. There were seven of us here for lunch and it was a beautiful autumn day - sunny but chilly in the shade.

We started with drinks outside in our new patio area, and ate inside. Slow- cooked roast lamb on the fire and feijoa and rhubarb crumble for afters were served. Both the rhubarb and feijoas were from our garden.



It was such a nice relaxed day. I hope you enjoyed a lovely Sunday too whether you mark Mother's Day or not.



Toot toot! Tooting my own horn here :)

I'm just so happy to see my newest book doing well! Thanks to everyone who has ordered it and reviewed it too. My true wish is that you enjoy '100 Ways to be That Girl' and get loads of value from it.

Just for fun, I'm going to share one of my favourite parts of the book. I love all the tips but some I LOVE. Here’s one of them:


No. 24
Be your own best friend

That girl doesn’t put herself down or make self-deprecating remarks. But neither is she stuck up or over-confident. She simply endeavours to be a best friend to herself: a cheerleader, coach, and someone who can be counted on to provide a needed pep talk. She knows she is only human, so while she expects a lot from herself, she is also forgiving. What this looks like in my life is that I make time to rest and play, as well as do my work. I’m kind to myself most of the time. I know I can’t be expected to be perfect and sometimes I’ll just say something really dumb. I did this yesterday and stewed on it all day, but today I’ve let it go. A best friend would do that for me!


If you needed to hear this, I’m glad to help :)

And please, if you are reading ‘100 Ways to be That Girl’, let me know your favourite tip so far!

I had an email from Amazon this week advising that printing costs are going up - like everything I suppose! The price increase will happen next month, on the 20th of June. I thought it was nice of them to give me advance notice, so I'm passing it on to you.

If there are any paperbacks you've been meaning to order, perhaps do so before the price rise. I'm not sure how much the increase will be, they didn't say, and it will certainly vary per book due to their differing sizes.

I know many of you prefer print copies to read and I get it. Even though I love my Kindle, there really is something about a book you can hold, open to a certain page, and pick up easily. The covers are more appealing too than on a screen. In fact, I’ve been reading more paper books lately and my Kindle is feeling a little left out – poor neglected Kindle!

You can see all my books here on Amazon, where each title is available on Kindle or in paperback.

Happy reading if you decide to order yourself some paperbacks. Wishing you a lovely week and I'll see you next Thursday!
