The Countdown to my favourite event in Felixstowe has begun. I feel so fortunate to have this incredible event in my hometown. That event is of course the fabulous Felixstowe Book Festival.
When I did my book signing, in November 2022, for But Seriously, Who Knew?, along with my autograph (oh my goodness how weird does that sound… it felt very silly at the time but I absolutely loved feeling like a film star!), I wrote in most of the books “Stop waiting – do it now!”. Now this statement will resonate differently for each person – stop waiting to book a holiday, move house, buy a new car; stop waiting to have children, leave your relationship, start your own business; stop waiting for retirement, the ‘right time’. I think the point is we never know what is around the corner so, whatever your desire/dream/wish is, if you can do it now (based on finances, health, family ties etc.) then get on with it, stop waiting, stop procrastinating, stop making excuses – take a risk and make your dreams come true.
Sarah has written a beautiful poem, a message to her younger self ❤️
We know that reading is a very important skill to possess, especially in today’s world. Reading not only helps to improve our knowledge and understanding of a variety of topics, but it also helps us to develop our language skills, boost our creativity, and increase our concentration. It helps us broaden our horizons, as it exposes us to more cultures, people, and situations. Reading is also fantastic for developing your creative skills, and reading is fundamental for a child's development.
Ever wanted to enjoy a good reading challenge!
Sarah has sent us another beautiful poem, it is incredibly heartfelt and had a lot of thought put into it, we hope you enjoy reading it 😊❤️

With Christmas fast approaching, I hope you are feeling ready to switch off and enjoy time with friends and family. If you have a few more gifts to get and are worried about the postal strikes delaying things arriving on time, don’t panic.
