#SoCS Sept. 2/17 – Birth/Berth

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “birth/berth.” Use one, use ’em both, but whatever you do, have fun!

So… I am a little too excited as I type this… but I shall chat about a few things…

Berth – When I went to Russia on a school trip… (Yes really Russia! It was amazing!) We took an overnight train from St Petersburg to Moscow. And I had to sleep on the train. I got the lower berth, or bunk, and it was the best nights sleep I have EVER had! Gently rocked to sleep…amazing!

Birth –  now this is why I’m a little excited, and why I’m a little tipsy… (Yes I wrote this post last night, scheduled for the morning as I don’t think I’ll be up early!) But today, after a particularly successful first day of my freebie promotion for my book Poetic RITUALS (You didn’t know? It’s FREE until tomorrow!  Grab your copy while you can on your Kindle by clicking this link! myBook.to/PoeticRITUals), well… Amazon gave birth to a #1 Best Selling Author!!!!


I am so ecstatic right now… (and a little merry!) I hope to see that happen with my novel… as and when it gets finished too!

Thank you all of you who downloaded it! I am looking forward to reading the reviews!

Birth (take two) – It’s my Birthday tomorrow! And today my Hubby Dearest is whisking me (and the kids) away to a lovely hotel for a treat! We are off tonight, and back tomorrow, after what will, hopefully, a lovely evening!

Right… I’m off to enjoy my glass of wine now!

Cheers Peeps!

    I was going to accuse you of being one of Trump’s Russian links until I remembered where you live.
    I hope your Freebie Promotion goes really well and that you have a fantastic night’s treat at the hotel along with a Wonderful Birthday.
