Chit-chat Wednesday and The Wish Box

This has been a shaggy, dreary and harsh winter. We've all been sick in our inner-city abode constantly: the Scribe since March when our dog died (although we think his health may be related to a dive he did), and Daisy hasn't been at school for over a week so we get to play together at home.
Here is a Magic Wishing Box she made where she placed all her wants and wishes into it. (Many more wishes than I photographed here). Her wishes are always for very cute things such as bunny rabbits, eleven sisters and a Prince to kiss her and take her to a castle.
I have some good news. My agent has read Poets Cottage and is happy with it. Now she's going to start offering it to publishers.
My Wishing Box is blowing a trumpet, dancing on spindly glittery legs. Unlike my daughter, I only have a few wishes inside my box.
I do feel as if something good is going to happen.
Sniffs and Coughs from Brick Hospital. Thanks for visiting me. xx

    And I hope and wish that your wish come true!! It's really wonderful news:)

    Thanks for sharing the lovely link with me, I will need lots of wedding inspirations to get me by this one year!

  6. I like this post...a wish box sounds wonderful and I am so glad your agent likes the book - let us know when it finally makes Amazon - if you have that in oz? I might think of some wishes I want! And thanks for all your lovely messages recently PS Hope you feel well soon xxx

  7. Okay, that is absolutely adorable. Thanks for sharing and I hope the sickness is gone soon!
