Holiday UK style!

Back from hols, sun-kissed and relaxed. Well, actually, more sun-sizzled and the merest bit … stressed. Fortunately, we did make the treacherous fast-flowing river journey before the engine gave out. And, even more fortunately, the man didn’t break anything too crucial when he fell over backwards, pride not withstanding which was rather dented when, having established he wasn’t dead, I dissolved into a fit of hysterical giggles.

All that said, we did have a lovely time - I still maintain the best way to explore the UK is via the inland waterways - and ended up at Upton Marina (ours is the posh boat, obviously, not),

accessed via the recently restored Droitwich Canal, where the scenery was stunning,

and Worcester. Viewed from the River Severn, it’s a truly beautiful, vibrant city:

We encountered some of the local wildlife,
rare musical talent,

and finally ended up at Upton, where we saw the hugely talented, Toyah Willcox, who knows how to entertain and looks pretty, darn good into the bargain (this incidentally was where the man fell over backwards. Say no more.)
Now it’s back to business, catching up: housework, work, work, washing, writing (yay!). On which note, I’m uber-pleased to announce I am the newly appointed Reviewer Awards Co-ordinator for Loveahappyending Lifestyle, celebrating and rewarding the fantastic job that reviewers do, selflessly sacrificing their time to read our books! Three cheers for all our reviewers out there. We salute you!
If you haven’t yet seen the fabulous Loveahappyending Lifestyle Magazine, you can view it here, Read or download for free and enjoy!

On a more personal note, in conjunction with my upcoming book tour - details to follow, Safkhet Publishing is holding a fabulous competition, the theme: ROMANTIC HEROES! Safkhet is currently seeking candidates to join the panel judging short stories. Sound Exciting? You can find more details here: ROMANTIC HEROES.
Looks like Snoops and I are going to be busy little bees!

Keep safe everyone! Lots of love.

I love reading about your adventures, Sheryl. It sounds like so much fun. I'm jealous! Your dog has a more adventurous life than I do! :)

Ship ahoy! Is it safe to come on board (I don't have sea legs and never will...alas). Sounds like you had a fab time and I hope it was a truly relaxing break! Lxx
