Hi there everyone. I'm having a little break from blogging whilst I'm in Paris, but I've written this post to tie in with Carol over at facing50withhumour, as she has told me that it's my turn today in the Mini Skirt Contest, so, as I said in the title of this post, no men are to go peeking over there today! Hee Hee!
In my defence, I would say that I was standing up for "women of a certain age" but, on reflection, I think that should be "women past their sell-by date." Oh well, it's too late to have second thoughts now. Just promise that you will be gentle with me! Trouble is, I've made a huge mistake, because I tried to bribe the main Ajudicator (yes, that's YOU, Desiree), and she's been a bit sniffy with me ever since. Ooops! Perhaps I should have offered her a bit more!
Anyway, it's in a very good cause, as this is all leading up to a BIG PARTY here on the 16th September, courtesy of our dear friend Carol, in celebration of the launch of her first novel, "Mini Skirts and Laughter Lines". I have read the e-book version and also have the paperback version, and it really is such a hoot. If you enjoy reading Carol's blog as much as I do, then this is the book for you. Mind you, quite what her hubby, son and poor mother think about its content, I dread to think!!!
I know that this party of hers is going to be so much fun!
Our little bloggy friend The famous author is now working very hard, getting everything ready for the big day, so thank you for that Carol! I shall be the first one knocking on your door - eeeek!! And here is a photo of the lady herself. Crikey, she's scrubbed herself up a bit since the last photo I saw of her!
I've heard it on the grapevine that the now very famous Ms Wyer is also going to be speaking to us through a video link on the 16th September. That will be worth the price of the entrance ticket alone! Let's hope that those elecution lessons have paid off!!
Eeek! I've just realized that perhaps there are people out there in bloggyland who might not understand the British sense of humour so, to cover myself, I should say that I love Carol to bits and everything is said in jest!
