Where did that come from, October I mean and where has the year gone also why does it go quicker the older you get?
img_4466   There are not many good things about winter but one of them is hot chocolate, that will always put a smile on my face.  I love sitting in a cafe watching out the window, wondering where the people are going or coming from.
The other good thing is The Folkestone Book Festival in November, I can’t wait and have booked lots of events already.  I have also set up a book signing for Guy Fraser-Sampson at Congo Coffee shop in The Old High Street, so really looking forward to that as he is such a lovely man and a brilliant author.  His book Death In Profile was great so really looking forward to the next book which is out in the new year.

I steer clear of politics on here and very rarely read any posts about it but I have got to say I feel sorry for America as I don’t think either of them are up for the job, such a shame it cannot stay the way it is.
I am reading ROOM at the moment, what a strange story but I am very intrigued by it, I think I can figure out what is going to happen as I am now half way through it but the beginning has you thinking all sorts of things.  It has been made into a film that I have borrowed also but will wait until I have finished the book to watch that.
We have half term here at the end of October and I am taking my eldest daughter and grandson Alfie to Euro Disney for three days, I think Jodie is more excited than Alfie.  I have taken all of Jodie’s children one at a time over the years so it will be good for her to know what they are talking about.  It was careful planning on my behalf though as she can do all the running about and I can sit and watch their enjoyment.

The other super thing about November is that it is National Novel Writing Month which I plan to do again this year and hopefully finish off my current book.  I don’t sign up for it just follow along and I find it really helps in motivating me to write everyday, even if I am not feeling very well I still try to write something while in bed.

    I know. It’s a big missing since my move from NYC – the world’s most fun place to shop (window or otherwise).

    I think it makes the wait until Santa arrives interminable to see ornaments and decorations before Thanksgiving, even – but I am one of the adults for whom it increases the pleasure of the season.
    I’ve only had one shopping buddy who liked what I like as we moved along together. My other friends prefer to go their own way and meet up only occasionally. It’s not nearly as much fun.

    We have xmas things in shop already! Far too early as I think it spoils it a bit for kids.
    It’s great to go away with someone who is as fun as yourself, I have a lovely friend who is so like me so even shopping is a joy as we both look at same things and move on to shops at same time, not often you find that.
    Thank you for your comments it’s so nice to hear what people have to say. Xx

    Faster and faster and faster. Remember when we were 5 “and a half” and the time until we were old enough to go to school with “the big kids” was an eternity? The summer between High School and college felt like a year to me. And now? I barely blink and it’s Christmas again! Of course, here in the US the stores start with the Christmas stuff the second Halloween vacates the shelves, so maybe that’s messing with my internal timing a little bit. (not that I’m actually complaining — I L-O-V-E Christmas decorations!)
    Enjoy your Disney trip. I loved mine — both of them. I did it once for a day when I was in a play in Tampa the entire cast got there when it opened and closed it down. Later, with my then boyfriend, we spent a 5-day weekend, staying in 2 of the hotels on the grounds. Expensive trip for us, but I had a ball and will never forget it, even tho’ he was a more than a bit of a stick in the mud, especially compared to the crazies from my first trip.
