Over a month since my last post - I'm ashamed!  

But we are now half way through the summer holidays which is always a period of juggling!  

I've been trying to fit in  the odd bursts of writing whenever I get a few spare minutes - usually in Sainsbury's cafe when I'm between taxi journeys - not the cheapest way to write.

I've also been looking for a new job, but despite getting the interviews the job always seems to be just out of my grasp.

But after a long period of rejection, I'm delighted to say that today I received a phonecall from a lovely lady at Prima magazine, to tell me that they are going to publish a story I sent them recently. 

It really made my day and gave me a real boost when I needed it most.  Thank you Prima!

They accept 800 word stories, so the wordcount is pretty tight, but with the ever decreasing outlets for Womag stories, its definitely worth a try.

Now I'm going to have a very large glass of wine to celebrate!
