Sunny Cyprus - exclusive pics! And puppydog puppydog where have you been - to see the Queen!
9 June 2018

I'm currently writing this from my hotel room overlooking Protaras beach in sunny Cyprus- according to the thermometer on the hotel wall it's 33 degrees sunny, to be exact! So I thought I'd mention a few things that I've loved about my annual summer holiday this year.

Firstly - when the sun went in! As you'll know from previous blogs, including this one from last June all about my rare genetic 'thing' called EPP, I can't stay in the sun. So when a rare overcast afternoon meant I could go in the see and not worry about the sunshine, I took advantage! (see pic in montage)

Otherwise it was a regular evening swim in the hotel pool, where the sun dipped low enough to provide some shade yet the water was lovely and warm.

We've had some wonderful food, my sis and mum and their partners, and I've relaxed loads. Yoga has been on the menu every morning at ten. As was a smashing massage in the Elemis spa in the nearby Sunshine Pearl hotel. And lots of brain games like doing the daily crossword and Sudoku with mum, and the daily poolside quiz. Also had a good couple of nights out including cocktails with the management and karaoke at the Zodiac up the strip! And I've written a lot - not just catching up on all the social media and emails, including for Retreats for You bookings (latest dates on the post here) but also getting on with my next novel, French or Dutch. I'm well over 62000 words now. Getting there. the room is comfy and the views are fab. It's right on the beach so the sea features in many picturesque shots! 

Have loved being away and being able to get time to do all the things I wanted to do - even did some bodyblade! Trouble is there's never enough time is there! And I fly back to a very busy retreat week in Devon at my place this Monday. It's nearly full! But I'm looking forward to it! Hope you have a nice June too - whatever you do?


Medical Detection Dogs meet Royalty

Puppydog puppydog where have you been- they've been to London to visit the Queen! Well what an amazing achievement to not only be celebrating ten years anniversary but also to be invited to meet the Queen herself and HRH Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall, who has been a patron since 2015. Here's my latest report on it - including link to a video! Very proud of the charity for which I am an ambassador.


Book of the Week - is a super suspense/drama/crime/thriller - Cross Her Heart - by one of my top authors Sarah Pinborough. She had my 2017 Book of the Year 'Behind Her Eyes' and this new one is fab too! Go here to read more on my book of the week blog RiWiSi.

Plus if you're after a little list of top tips for great summer reads, do go to my latest QVC blog here - which also includes a couple of sneaky peeks for the week ahead on QVC - and the Early Bird order link for the new Nails Inc deal is here! Apologies for not emailing my newsletter last week - ran out of time ahead of hols!


Want to get away? How about a little trip down to Devon this summer - we are mainly a writing retreat but that doesn't mean we don't occasionally have non-writers. I have two full weeks booked of non writers, actually, so always worth asking us! Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to enquire about dates, and have a little look here - by the way - we have spaces currently on our yoga week on August 13th if you fancy doing one or two classes each day!

Ok so I'd better get back to writing my book - one day I'll get it finished!

Much love
