Writing About Writing As A Parent, and an IGA Christmas



I recently shot a video for IGA about Christmas decorating with the kids. If you’d like to look, it’s now available for view at the IGA website. It was lots of fun!

I was also asked to contribute to the’Writers’ Other Jobs’ series over at The Writers Bloc, and I chose to write about my other crazy, fabulous, frenzied, complicated and completely wonderful life of being a parent: ‘So much besides: writing as the other job‘. I know many of you will relate! x

    Great video, love the fire extinguisher in the background. All kitchens should have one.

    Having the kids involved in the preparation, making and cleaning up!! is a joy. We made ginger bread houses this year and well as the Christmas cake.

    I agree with Ann well done for having a fire extinguisher! Really great video well done on being promoted by the IGA ! We just did the ginger bread village this year. My LG wanted the train but that was far to intricate!
