It’s a publishing first!

This is a first for me….my first published full page news story featuring my own photography too! I’m always pleased when my contributions make it to press, but you could say I was just a little bit delighted to find my stuff taking up a whole page of the Diocesan newspaper last month 🙂

Tomorrow/today ……(it’s gone midnight here and I’m recovering from a nightmare of a migraine – nausea, torturous eye pain etc)….. I have some more photos to take and (hopefully) a new story to write of another event and I ask for your prayers because in a freaky twist of freakiness, my ex husband/ex mother inlaw and other ex family members will most probably be present for the event, though for an altogether different reason. My camera doesn’t have anti shake and I have some scathing ‘ex’ relatives who will be tut-tutting at how I have let myself go and how fat I got over the years!

I would really appreciate your prayers as this will be really testing for me , and to get a few good shots with my story, will be nigh on impossible if I can’t stop the palpitations!

    Hearty congratulations to you on your publication! That is real validation, that can not be undone by petty tut-tutting. So put a feather in your cap!

    Thanks so much for your congratulatory remarks, I’m very pleased about it…though I have lost/mislaid three previous papers with my ‘work’ in – I am endravouring NOT to lose my copy of this newspaper!
