What a day
As a parent you are always concerned that they are okay so when my youngest rang this morning in tears I was immediately concerned but it was good news! You women will understand. She was ringing to let me know that her boyfriend had proposed and she'd accepted!!!!!
Then there was the football match between my team, Sunderland, and Newcastle which is always a battle and of late one that we'd not had a great deal of success in, but after giving the Pope a replica shirt he seems to have interceded on our behalf. Yes we won 2 - 1!
So I am feeling frivolous and have included the following for your amusement. This came from an ex-teacher friend. The spelling mistakes are courtesy of the children.

The Musings of a Confused Mind
Every so often I have a push on one of my books or the poetry collection 'The Musings of a Confused Mind'. I have the poetry published in paperback by Amazon's Create Space programme and enrolled it on KDP Select. This has been the case for a while. Every now and again I give the book away on Amazon's Select service. It usually means that between a dozen and twenty copies are downloaded but the good side effect is that a few of the Steele novels are purchased which is pleasing. Last weekend it was 'Inceptus' that attracted purchasers. I shouldn't be greedy but they are still only going in ones rather than tens!
One thing I haven't done as yet is to try the free days on consecutive weekends but that's what I will try this weekend. So this Sunday the poetry will be free again.
