Well, the hip surgery went really well – the clinic and staff were wonderful – and I had three weeks rest and recuperation with my daughter, who spoiled me rotten.
I’m back home now, doing my exercises and get about with the help of a stick.
Today, after a visit to the hairdresser, I walked home through the town for the first time in months and dropped into a couple of my favourite shops, which was a real treat, especially as I was able to pick up books by some of my favourite True Love authors. in WHS.
I still can’t drive for a couple of weeks, but I had a lift to the WI this week – for a talk by the woman who runs the Hampton Court ghost walks. There’s apparently a gallery where, when the police did a security sweep before a royal visit, the dogs refused to enter. They just lay at the door and whimpered. And the woman who, for years, complained about two men appearing in her bedroom. When, following damage, her floor was dug up, the bodies of two men were found…
I’m still working on the new book – delayed by two lots of surgery at the back end of this year – and I am being distracted by the sight of the covers for my latest True Love/Romance/Forever Romance, out in January in Australia and February in the US and UK. (Paper copies are available online in the US).
I was especially thrilled to see that Mills and Boon Australia are celebrating that this is my seventieth book for this publisher, and that the paperback has been paired with the wonderful Kandy Shepherd.
I’m off to have lunch with the family. Enjoy your weekend!
