A most unexpected phone call, to tell me my story has been short-listed in this competition. If I make it to the first 3, the award evening is held in the Bishop's Palace at Wells. Wouldn't that be something? I remember being taken to see the swans on the moat ringing the bell to be fed, when I was a child, but I've never been inside. The West Country's being very kind to me at the moment. Three different stories for three different competitions making it to the potential prize-winner list! I'm really thrilled.
