A cover girl at last!

It's not quite Vogue or even Cosmo but Archie and I are on the front cover of the Summer 09 edition of Transport for London's magazine 'getting there'.

The photo of me on my mobility scooter with Archie beside me relates to the article I wrote in the magazine about mobility scooters, profiling 4 scooter enthusiasts. So if you get the magazine have a read - otherwise I'll try and sort out a link!

In spite of having to turn my attention to house renovations at the moment I'm still managing to keep some brain cells working by writing some articles and I must admit I do get a kick out of it which is great; I really want to be one of those people who loves what they do for a living rather than someone who just moans about their job.

Once I've got the new house sorted, [deadline Christmas?] Archie installed in school and Ben in preschool [both deadlines Sept] I should be able to find a bit more time to develop my writing even further. Watch this space.
