Take a Break's Fate & Fortune

Marianna and I are in the latest issue of Take a Break's Fate & Fortune magazine. I actually submitted the story months ago as part of my quest to try and make some extra cash via the women's weeklies (read more HERE) and they got back to me to say they would probably use it as a letter at some point this year. Today I got an email to say it was going to be in the December issue of Fate & Fortune so I sent Anthony out to buy a copy.

It's actually a picture of my mum with my nan, but you know...

Sadly, even with a title like 'Spirit nan saved my baby', we didn't win star letter so no cash prize. Still, it's pretty cool to be in a national magazine. I'm going to stick the clipping into Marianna's baby book for when she's older. :)

  2. Its a lovely memories to have . My kids used to act and I saved everything from scripts of new paper cuttings for them. Even now at 34 and 29 they love to look at it. Can't wait to the grandkids are older so I can show them. Sorry you didnt win the star prize but its great to have.

    1. That's so lovely! I was really into art as a kid and my dad saved all my sketchbooks and things - it was great, if a bit embarrassing, to look through it all again recently. :)
