That will be 3 in total - not a big deal in comparison to many of you out there but you have to start somewhere!
To be honest Jill had had the story for rather a long time and I'd given up hope, but I thought I'd send a query email just to be on the safe side. I expected a "no" to bounce back, so this news was doubly exciting. I suppose the message in this is to not give up hope, and that maybe after a long time, a polite query email, may actually do some good.
I've had a dance round the living room with my boys, I think they think I'm quite mad. The first question was "How much are you getting paid for it?" the second question, which remained unspoken, I'm sure was "What are you going to buy me with it?"
Christmas presents perhaps?
Now I'm off to have a celebratory cup of tea, and maybe even one of my son's chocolate chip cup cakes.
I know how to live don't I?
