Monty, Rosie and Jeff-Dog are Susan’s Border Collies – they keep an eye on her artwork to make sure she keeps earning kibble, and they have woofs with her if she’s not busy writing her books the rest of the time; every now and then they round up all the news of both and post it to her blog…

Large Print books: short stories, Sudoku and Word Search

A friend of mine has macular degeneration. This has made me realise how fab modern technology is for those with low vision. It has also made me realise how little there is for those who don’t like modern technology. So I have brought out some books in Very Large Print.

There are two word search puzzle books – (one of which isn’t in this pic) – that one is a book of the 48 counties of England with snippets of information for each county as well as the list of words to search for. The other word search puzzle book is in the pic – it is based on The Natural World. There is also a sudoku book for keeping one’s brain exercised, and two short story books.

One short story book is ‘Sweet Peas and Dahlias’ (and other stories), and the other is ‘Burglars R Us’ (and other stories). Both these books are illustrated to provide another ‘texture’ to reading the books.

The illustrations in the short story books are in black and white, and the fab reviewer who has just kindly left a five star review has said she is going to colour them. What a great idea!!! Multi-multi-functional books!

The face of a dog betrayed…

PupperJack has an exceptional tail. It’s so exceptional it is longer than he is tall. This means he sometimes leaves it lying around further from his face than you’d think possible.

On this fateful occasion he was going downstairs. I was following. Somehow my foot got on his tail just as he jumped to the stair below and didn’t quite make it because he was anchored to the stair above by his tail. Under my foot. Oops!

Poor PupperJack. He’s been looking at me accusingly ever since.

We’re back! PupperJack dog and I are at the blog posts again…

Oh, yes. It’s time we got to grips with the old dog and cat and books website and blog again. So here we are – surrounded by mountains of Christmas cards. The ones that other people send out (rather than ones we have received)…

Like these ones…

So - ARE you thinking what I'm thinking???

London – there’s nowhere quite like it

I was in London this week and took a couple of pics as I was getting around.

If you want a shotgun door handle you can find one in London:

Shotgun door handle. Of course.

But you can’t find a bin…

Some fab buildings…

This fab building is on the corner of Wimpole Street – which always makes me think of Georgette Heyer…

This is a fab building on Oxford Street. Not sure what it is though…

And then there are the ones that pretend to be a building while the building goes on underneath:

Pretty façade.

Then there was a dog taking some ponies for a walk. (In the middle of London!)

What a good dog!

What a good dog!

And then you fall down an unmanned manhole…

Arrgghhhh....
