Bouncy…

… but it’s too early to tell you why. It concerns the provisional acceptance of a story, in a book I’m over the moon to be on the list for. The ‘provisional’ bit is why I’m not spilling the beans just yet – while the editor has given an enthusiastic thumbs up, there are further people who need to give approval before it becomes a done deal.

Hopefully, it will all go swimmingly, and I’ll be able to tell you why I’m giddy as a kipper. Then, hopefully, you will be too. It’s not the sort of thing you would probably have expected to see me involved in, which makes it all the more exciting.

Actually, I’ve never seen a giddy kipper. Do kippers get giddy? And do they enjoy it?

    Ah, it’s all become clear to me now…giddy kipper-wise. Congrats on the “provisional.”

    One More Hug,

    Yep, don’t know why I didn’t think of it before. You’re going to particularly enjoy Mr Sociopathic and Little Miss Bunny Boiler, I think…

    I was thinking a new edition of “Where’s Waldo” myself. Sorry I fell off the face of the Earth, but I’m working my way back and I’m thrilled to see that you’re doing so well! Looks like I have a fair bit of reading to catch up on. :o)

    Oh, so close…

    Good to see you round these parts again. Don’t worry, I get the same way when there are big changes in my life…
