I’m so sorry that I’ve neglected this blog for most of this year. Finding time to write has been really tricky which is a real shame as it’s what I really enjoy. I have so many more stories to tell about Molly and D over the last few years but as every working mum or dad knows carving out time for oneself in amongst children transitioning to secondary school, contemplating mobile phones, Year 4 friendship crises, packed lunches, class assemblies, forgotten violins, bake sales, endless clubs and classes, permission slips, nits, verrucas, molluscum, stitches and so on, there is hardly any time for anything. Just as you think one problem is sorted, another crops up.
It’s therefore such a joy that my lovely agents at Watson Little occasionally send me an email to tell me that the rights of my parenting book ‘Inside Out Parenting’ have been sold abroad. And yesterday, hiding in the secret cupboard where the postie leaves things that cannot get through my letterbox was a parcel containing 3 copies of a lovely little book.
I’m so chuffed to report that my book ‘Inside Out Parenting’ is now available in Thailand. I can’t read a word of it but the pictures are super cute! I particularly like that the cartoon me is missing a few tyres around the waist and bags under the eyes. If you know anyone in Thailand in search of a parenting book, please let them know!
That is fantastic – an internationally renowned author, congratulations! I hope you do find time to write more, but yes, I do know what it’s like…
