How To Brighten Up A Dull Week!


This is an impromptu Monday blog post to celebrate the launch of my blogger friend and fellow author Jean Bull’s collection of stories ‘Postcards and Suntan Cream’ which would certainly brighten up a dull wet week in Scotland!

 



Jean says: “Each day I will be blogging about one of my favourite holiday destinations which form a backdrop to my stories. All you have to do to join in is: Leave a comment on my blog.  Write about a favourite holiday destination on your blog.  Give link back to my blog. Then on Sunday, January 13th, 2013, at 6pm GMT, I will put all the Holiday Party Bloggers' names in my sun hat, and the first out will receive a signed copy of Postcards and Suntan Cream!”

So here is a photo from one of my favourite holiday destinations: Florida.
 

 
As a family, we have been lucky to have some fabulous holidays and when our boys were younger; we went over to Florida to do the theme parks and what a time we had! This picture, a caricature of my husband, our three boys and me, was drawn at Universal Studios theme park and it makes me smile every time I look at it!
 
So do pop over to Jean's Blog and join in all the blogging fun!

But before you go - do pop back here again on Friday when, after last Friday’s ‘Planning Ahead’ post and in response to comments here on the blog and on Twitter, I’ll be looking at clever and innovative ways to save time in your day so that you can have some time over to focus on achieving your personal and writing goals. Top Tips will be shared by fellow authors and a professional Productivity Ninja. Yes really! It's not to be missed!
 
Love, Janice xx

Love the picture, Janice! Before I got married, my parents and I went to Florida quite often to visit my aunt (my mum's sister) and her family in Orlando. My cousin still lives there.

Popping over to Jean's blog now.

The picture is such fun, isn't it? It sums up our Orlando for me. If I had a cousin in Orlando, Melanie, I'd be visiting her every year. Lol!

Hi Nazi - thanks for your lovely comment and Happy New Year to you!

Thank you Rosemary. I'm looking forward to Friday's post too, as I have had so many responses to my call out for Top Tips for time management. See you then!

Love, Janice xx
