Spot on, Mel! So much of this resonates 👇

Think it’s fair to say that my darling girl has officially disowned me after I gave her my special pleading puppy impression followed by a Wayne’s World double thumbs up as she went in to Guides tonight 👍🏻🐾😂

Happy publication day to @LisforLia. #EightPerfectHours is a very perfect book indeed. I adored it👇🎉💖

When waiting to join a very serious and life changing online meeting, do not grab your daughter’s pink glitter hairspray and spray yourself liberally, thinking it’s perfume, as you’ll appear in the very serious meeting twinkling like a flaming Christmas tree with a cheese grin😬

Happy pub day to @HollyMAuthor. Doesn’t this book look absolutely gorgeous? 👇💗☀️
