2013 Roundup

I cannot believe we’re almost at the end of 2013 already. Although they do say time flies when you’re having fun and I have to agree those words certainly sum up my last twelve months. Naturally, I’m not going to bore you with everything that’s taken place in the Tullett household this year, but I thought I’d share a couple of the highlights that have made 2013 quite memorable in one way or another.

The year began with the welcome news that we were going to be Grandparents and with that came the decision that we needed to be nearer the UK. This meant leaving Greece for pastures new and what better place in which to begin our new chapter than France? Leaving friends and neighbours behind, it took a number of visits and quite a few viewings before we found the perfect home. Although by ‘perfect’ I mean in relation to location and potential – with lots of DIY to do, who knew I’d become such an expert with a lump hammer?

Amidst all of this I had a book to get ready for release. Edits were to-ing and fro-ing between the publisher and I, the cover was being decided upon and there were lots of promotional activities taking place. The excitement was building until, at last, it was finally released onto you, the book buying public. Then it was quickly nominated for The Guardian’s Not the Booker Prize and subsequently short listed – an experience that wasn’t just exciting, it taught me a lot too.


Next came Elijah, the most beautiful baby you could ever hope to see. Of course, all grandparents say that about their grandchildren but in my case I can categorically state it happens to be true. And already, he’s so full of character. Honestly, I could not be prouder.

So that’s a quick roundup of my 2013 and all that’s left is for me to say is a big thank you to each and every one of you, for the support, encouragement and kind words that you’ve given me in the last twelve months. Here’s to 2014 being just as wonderful for all of us.

Wishing you all a very, merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Enjoy the festivities and I shall see you all next year!
