What is it about the number seven?
Lucky seven, seven year itch, seven brides for seven brothers, seventh son of a seventh son, seven swans a-swimming, it's one of those numbers with which we all seem to connect.
I was very flattered when my friend Christina Courtenay nominated me to receive a Very Important Blogger Award - thank you, Christina - and here's the Award itself:
Now it's my turn to tell readers seven hopefully interesting things about me:
1 I speak perfect Franglais.
2 I would like to be a vegetarian but can't quite resist the lure of bacon sandwiches - bacon from outdoor and organically reared pork, of course.
3 I'd like to have been an archaeologist but am equally happy excavating the plot holes in my own stories.
4 I am very good at wasting my time.
5 I like orange Smarties.
6 If I were to come back as an animal, I would like to be a whippet, preferably a fat, spoiled and lazy whippet.
7 I like sloe gin.
