And I’ve been delighted to meet Trish in person at a couple of M&B lunches, too!
I should point out that I’m not the only one celebrating a milestone book at the moment – Trish is also celebrating, with her 25th. Power to your elbow, Trish, and here’s to the next 25!
Over to Trish:
50 is such a cool number, whether it’s scoring 50 runs at cricket, reaching your 50th wedding anniversary or even turning 50 - it’s a milestone - you made it! (Even if you still tell everyone you’re 39:-) And having 50 Harlequin Mills & Boon romance titles to your name, that is a pretty awesome, not to mention one very cool milestone. Congratulations, Kate!
And how best to celebrate this fantastic achievement? Well, I could talk about my latest book, but seeing this is a celebration, I thought you might prefer some happy snaps instead:-)
I had the chance to go to SeaWorld recently. Sea World is on the Gold Coast in sunny Queensland and it’s been there since 1971. It’s an institution. I remember going as a kid and it was fun then. Nothing’s changed, the entire day I spent there was a party, as if news of Kate’s fabulous achievement had traveled nEmo-mail across the seas.
You see? These dolphins were literally dancing with excitement.
And this one named Nudge couldn’t stop smiling the whole day (a bit like our Kate, I wager, who could be up to her neck in hot water (or hot men) and still keep smiling too!) (Aside - we actually got to swim with this one and it was utterly awesome!)
What’s the relevance of this picture, I hear you ask. Well, I reckon there’s exactly 50 fish in it, that’s why. (I’ll leave you to double check.)
These guys just cracked me up. Busy, busy, busy. A bit like Kate, come to thing of it. I once sent her a package addressed to the Energiser Bunny. It got there :-)
But what better way to celebrate anything than with a parade? Here’s SeaWorld’s Spongebob Parade brightening up everyone’s day.
There’s so much more to see besides - little penguins, sharks, stingrays, even polar bears - oh, and the rides will leave you wondering which way is up...
... so if you ever do get a chance to come on down, do take the trouble to get to SeaWorld, it is so worth it and definitely one of the happiest places you can possibly go.
See you there!
