This past few days has seen women march in almost every country on the planet. These marches were barely even days after President Trump’s inauguration. And yes, I understand that I am from the same stupid country that voted for Brexit, but I still didn’t believe that the American people would want this man as their president.
I am aware, of course, that he did not win the popular vote, which gladdens me to a degree. Even so, it was still a close margin and still culminated in the same sticky end.
I lent my voice on twitter, stating my support of the women marching. I did not march, but not because I wouldn’t have.

I’ve been fiddling around with different ways to grab attention on social media for my books, lately, and, although it started off really nicely, it seems to have dwindled a little since then. I suppose it’s no guarantee, though.

So, it all finally came to an end. I officially no longer work at Pizza Hut. Instead, I’m moving on to somewhere that looks to be a fantastic new start. And my first day is this next weekend, so if I’m a little absent over social media then it may be because I’m acquainting myself with the new place and have a lot to digest.
I really can’t begin to describe to you guys how much I’m looking forward to it. It’s going to be such a fantastic change of scenery (literally, as it’s at a beautiful farm tea rooms in the middle of some stunning countryside).
They also seem like wonderful people to work for and, having eaten there and visited before, I’m truly looking forward to working with the staff as well. Let’s just hope I manage to sleep through my excitement on Friday night so I’m all refreshed for the new day!
