Yesterday we spent the day at Mormor’s house. She was having a goodbye party for Jan & Jette who are moving back to Denmark. The kids had a ball, or shall I say a ‘cube’ in the pool.

On Friday I got two manuscripts back and two more on Saturday. Getting mail is no longer a happy occasion and I’m wondering what awaits me in today’s mail. The reasons for the returns: one publisher no longer does children’s books, one doesn’t accept unsolicited manuscripts, one just sent me their guidelines ( I am hoping they kept my stuff, since they didn’t return it), and the last said my work wasn’t right for their list. So now I need to resend these returns.
