Jumping and Jiving
I'm jumping because I have a story 'Every Time We Say Goodbye' in this month's People's Friend Special, with a lovely illustration to go with it by Len Thurston. It is a romance set on the coast of Devon and is about a Murder Mystery party.
I have never actually been to one myself and, if I'm honest, don't particularly want to. The thought of having to act in character, when all I want to do is enjoy my food, is not appealing and also I am hopeless at accents (doesn't everyone have to have one at these things?)
The reason I am jiving is because my husband and I are off to The Isle of Wight for a jive weekend on Friday. It is being held at one of the large hotels on the sea front at Sandown and it should be great fun. Our plan is to go to a few classes in the mornings (I'm looking forward to learning some strolls), walk the coastal path in the afternoons and then dance in the evenings. Saturday night is Grease Night with Joey and the Jivers... so I can wear that dress!
