So Secrets hung out at number 1 in its category for like five days, making this girl a very happy author. Then it started fluctuating between number 1 and number 3. I checked on it yesterday and it was back to number 1 again. But it dropped off after like an hour. By the way, I’m talking about Amazon UK. I’m actually selling a lot more books on Amazon US, but not hitting the number 1 spot because it’s just more competitive there. So thank you to both my UK and US readers (I still have a problem with the word ‘fans’ ha ha).
Kids Grow Up Too Fast
Last week was special for me for other reasons apart from stalking myself on Amazon 🙂 My daughter started school. I feel slightly tearful as I write this. (I was never an emotional person until I had kids. Now I cry over TV adverts and singers on Britain’s Got Talent, lol)
Rhema’s four (and, yes, she’s as cheeky as she looks). I remember the day she was born. It feels like yesterday, but it also does feel like a long time ago. Anyhow, I can’t believe she’s started school now. She was so excited. She felt so grown up in her school uniform. For some reason she was disappointed that her uniform doesn’t have wings (huh?) but I convinced her that although ‘uniform’ and ‘unicorn’ sound similar they have nothing in common. Uniforms most certainly don’t come with wings.
I was both excited and nervous. Tried not to look nervous so that I wouldn’t rub off on her. I was praying she’d be fine, praying she’d make good friends, praying she wouldn’t come home and tell me she didn’t like it and never wants to go back again. Of course, I was worrying for nothing because she was absolutely fine, and she even wanted to go to school on Saturday.
