Two down - one to go

This afternoon I received a great piece of news... I've been accepted as a restaurant reviewer for the upcoming Scottish Borders, Dumfries and Galloways Food and Drink Guide 2011!

An email from the secretary of the Borders Writers Forum went round just over a week ago and I emailed the guy involved. He then told me I had a week to write a review and add my personal details and why I think I should be a reviewer. I sent it all off on Saturday and then got my reply today. All very exciting, as it's not that often that two of my favourite pastimes (eating and writing) are combined in a oner... now all it would need would be a restaurant review at an indoor bowls centre and I'd be laughing!

On that note, I've been 'spotted'. One of the guys at the Tweedbank Indoor Bowls club has asked if I'd be interested in joining his team playing in the leagues next season. And of course the answer was a resounding yes.

So now I'm waiting for the third bit of good news!


  1. Great news indeed! I always wondered how you got to be a reviewer for these kinds of things. I look forward to hearing how it goes!

  2. It's called 'Creative Writing' I think!

  3. Well done on the reviewer's post. Yes, I saw the info from the BWF Sec. Hope to see you soon.

  4. Thanks Eileen. Am hoping it'll be fun. See you soon I hope.
