14/31 Why I Blog

Sorry a want AWOL yesterday, I've been busy with a little project that me and a few other ladies are taking part in. Here is a sneak peek

I'll show you more tomorrow.

Now, today's post, Why I blog is an easy one. I like to write. I have been pondering this post all week and it wasn't until I was talking to a lovely lass about her GCSE English exam and how it was cool because she just likes to write, that I too realised that's why I like to blog.

When I was Miss Woo's age I did want to become an author.

It was at this age that I was given a pile of horsey books by my auntie Sue's neighbour. These books included the fabulous Jill's Gymkhana by Ruby Ferguson.

This book was written in 1949 but that didn't matter to me, it was the world of horses.

This series of books ( there are 9 in total) inspired me to write stories about me and my fictional pony Puzzle, a piebald cob. As I ran along the Heath where I lived, I would act out the stories I had written or invented new ones.

I would love to own the first editions of these books. Who knows what happened to mine.

Night night.

I do hope you manage to track down a set of those books Nina. What a lovely keepsake they would be and a happy reminder of times gone by.
