Hum! Just reflecting on my last blog, it could not be further from the truth. Yes, I was about to fly to Mexico, preceding a very busy agenda, so what happened? A whirlwind for some, stop signs for many. Life changed overnight as COVID-19 came like an evil spirit from the abyss I have so… Read more »

What’s next?

Posted by & filed under Anna's Blog Roll, School Visits.

Just thinking about my agenda for the next couple of months and it’s packed. I don’t put much information on my online calendar for security purposes.It’s not a sensible idea to let everyone know that you’re not at home.So many people needlessly advertise the fact that they are away?

‘The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.’ So said Saint Augustine in the first century AD. An interesting thought and so true.

It seems that I started my blog on February 3rd with ‘Good Morning writers’ and here I am again particularly speaking to all those writers out there. I was in the company of someone recently who said that writing was easy, to quote ‘that’s not work it’s a hobby, you can’t call that stressful.’ Hum!… Read more »
