Solar eclipse and spring equinox

The solar eclipse aligning with the new moon and spring equinox augurs well for us Pisceans I hear, so let’s hope I can get myself more organised. Apologies for the lack of posts lately; I’ve been so busy with completing Walking in the Rain for publishing, starting my RNA NWS novel, and of course my day job at the university. Time has flown by and before we know it, winter has turned into spring and it’s the end of March already. Primroses are blooming in the garden and the daffodils are nearly in flower. I’ve been meeting and making friends with other authors, mainly from the wonderful RNA and have been scooting off on the train to Birmingham, Leicester and London for events. And a break in the gorgeous city of Venice.Soon it’s Nottingham for a writers’ conference and York for a get-together. But now – a weekend of writing to make up for the few days in lovely Venice with my husband, for my birthday! Went over to the islands: Murano, Burano and Torcello, walked miles and miles through the little alleyways of Venice, and puttered up and down the Grand Canal on vaporettos. Went to the wonderful modest Accademia and found breathtaking paintings by Titian, Tintoretto, Bellini and Canaletto. Wonderful old hotel right on the Grand Canal owned by an old Venetian family: great food and wine! (and a maitre d’ who seemed to have an eye twitch – or was he winking?) And found a super little Venetian bar in the back streets where they cooked the most gorgeous seafood risotto, tagliattelli with mushrooms, and tomato salad – oh, and lovely fresh coffee (where the gondoliers go!). Oh dear, now back to writing – got to catch up! But here are some images that remind me of Walking in the Rain, my latest book which will be out very soon! love in a rainy street holding onhold mebreaking up
