I can’t believe how gorgeous the weather has been for the last few days. Cool, clear early mornings followed by brilliant sunshine. I have been enjoying getting out and about with my dog, making the most of this unexpected warm spell. With winter just around the corner, it’s best to take advantage while we can!

September has always been a special month as it’s when my husband and I usually went away on holiday. I have been thinking about some of the holidays we had a lot recently as I have just completed a book set in the Greek Islands. Bill and I often went there and it’s not only been lovely to recall the happy times we had, but also to be able to picture the stunning scenery while I was writing. The Greek Doctor’s Secret Son won’t be published until April 2016 but I am looking forward to it appearing on the shelves of my local bookshop.

September is also my granddaughter’s birthday and there has been a lot of celebrating going on. Isobel turned eight this month and she is looking very grown up. She is crazy about horses and loves spending time with her pony. Here’s a photo of her plaiting Smokey’s tale.

Concentrating hard!

My grandson, Max, also started school this month so it’s been a busy time for him too. Fortunately, he has settled in and seems to be enjoying it. He certainly looks happy in this photo taken on his first day!


I hope September has been a happy and enjoyable month for you too.
