This post is in response to the third part of Michelle’s challenge:
3. Imagine it is the final week of 2015. What does your world look like? Describe it with as much colour and image and beauty and celebration as you can – no limit to length but you may want to focus on just ONE part of your year’s achievements eg. publishing a best seller novel or finding the love of your life.
So this is my fantasy of how if will be….
Hi all, this is what’s been going on for us this year,
As the calendar turns another page closing another year I sit here looking back over yet another glorious year enjoyed.
The flow of visitors through our doors matched other years, and it was wonderful to see the familiar faces, and the ones that haven’t been for so long, and one or two surprises too. We love hosting friends and family -be it for a meal, a day or for a week or so, in our cozy home and wonderful town. Thanks to everyone who managed a visit. Spending time with each and every one of you has been a pleasure. To those of you that haven’t got over here yet, don’t forget we are always open for business! Any rumours of our moving to larger premises are still just that – you all know how much we love our little place. We love each of its nooks, crannies and special places both inside and outside in the garden which incidentally is still thriving. Any bigger place would mean more cleaning etc and that just isn’t on our to do list!
March opened the floodgates on my burgeoning career as a successful writer and author. Book two of the cousins series was published just before World Book Day, and got some rave reviews from the faithful ‘cousins’ followers. The ‘schools tour’ for World Book Day was an amazing success with books selling out amazingly quickly at each of the schools and the amount of orders taken and fulfilled surprised and delighted me. Later this year I finally got the reply I had been hoping for. A well-known (name withheld for now) director had read book one and has petitioned for the rights to it and any sequels with the view to making the film of the book(s). A trip to the States in the New Year with our, recently brought on board, legal team (doesn’t that sound grand) will be to draw up the final contracts. Apparently a well-known actor of similar age to me has already been rumoured to be favourite to play the part based on me. What a laugh all of this is.
I’ve already written book four and book three is about to be published. It’s always around this time of year that I’m stressing about the illustrations and pulling everything together. Thank goodness for Nanowrimo for keeping me focused on the initial writing stage.
As usual Tony and I have both had ongoing health issues, but are still fighting strong and making the most of our lives. We had a great trip to London in January and of course had our usual Mediterranean cruise in September. The summer was like most others with trips here and there, and time spent with our furry family, who are also doing well, even though they are aging and that always scares me.
So that, in a nutshell, was our year. 2016 is going to be truly amazing, I can tell, just like last year. Things are always on the up and up. I am forever grateful that I read ‘The Secret’ so long ago and started practising within the laws of abundance and attraction. Just look where it’s got us!
So for now -A very Happy New Year
with the usual hugs and love from Casa TulStig
