Been a busy week. Down to Devon on Wednesday morning for grandchild-minding duties, driving home earlier than usual on Thursday so I could skedaddle off to St. Peter's church in Cockett to speak to the Thursday Group about my book.
It's wonderful when your first attempt at humour goes down well. Sets the tone for the rest of the evening. A large group - about 30 - ladies who were very appreciative and laughed in all the right places. I sold quite a few books at the end too.
[Husband: how many?
Me: I don't know.
Husband: well, how many did you take?
Me: don't know.
Husband: how much money did you take then?
Me: don't know because I got it mixed up with money already in my purse.
Husband: big sigh.]
Encouraged by my success I've been busy emailing people - WI, Townswomen's Guild, Mothers' Union - to try and get contact details for local groups who might be interested in having me speak to them.
And Husband spent a long time this morning trying to work out figures and it appears that I'm in the black! I've actually making a profit on my books! Not a lot but it's better than a loss.
(Are you supposed to have ridges in your thumb nail? How peculiar. It looks as if I got my thumb trapped in a door.)
