Oooh, it’s been an interesting month. So let’s see. Finished A’ level marking, nagged my sixth-formers to within an inch of their lives, planted potatoes in vegetable patch, took Bunny to the vets for her annual health check-up and booster jabs, watched all six episodes of Colin Firth’s Mr Darcy in ‘Pride and Prejudice’, read a book about Stevie Wonder, wrote a review about it, wrote an essay about the Brontë sisters, tried and failed to get fit… oooh, and FINISHED THE FIRST (GOOD) DRAFT OF MY THIRD LOTTIE BOOK.

So then I took it to London and handed a copy over to Agent Yeeles and the lovely peeps at Macmillan. And those very same lovely people at Macmillan GAVE ME A T-SHIRT WITH A CHINCHILLA ON IT.

Because they are blatantly stylish.

And in an effort to show them that it fits, I’ve just gone upstairs, stood in front of my bedroom mirror and taken a photo of myself. Please excuse the messy hair and the tired expression but I’ve just got home from my teaching job. Also, I’m getting old and the cracks are beginning to show….

On another exciting note, Lottie Biggs is Not Desperate has been long-listed for the Young Minds Book Award and I am WELL CHUFFED. So I’m keeping my fingers crossed that me and Lottie can sneak on to that short list… because if anyone should be on a short list it’s me. (5ft 1)

Oh, and if you’re under 18 and reading this, don’t forget to help me out by nominating me in the Queen of Teen awards.
