I don’t know where the time goes… but here we are! Since I last blogged, we’ve gained and lost the New Day, the ‘good news’ newspaper from the people who brought us the Mirror and the People. It was a lovely idea but sadly it would seem investors didn’t give it the space and time it needed to grow a fanbase. After 11 weeks, Britain’s first new newspaper in yonks disappeared as quickly as it had arrived.

And while we’re lamenting the demise of a great publication, this month sees us wave goodbye to Prima’s Baby and Pregnancy magazine. A progressive, informative, well designed magazine that sadly could not keep up with the changing face of print journalism. Another one bites the dust! But we’re still here and so are a great many magazines and newspapers. Let’s hope that continues, because here at Phoenix Towers, we love to write and really don’t want to have to get a real job…

Well this is a very happy day at Phoenix Features, for today Take a Break published my story about my darling sister, Pip. I give Pip all the credit for where I am now – I wouldn’t be the compassionate (and modest) writer that I am now if she hadn’t been such a huge influence on me. I adore my sister, she is the funniest, sweetest person I know. She makes me want to be a better person and she never, ever complains about her lot.

There’s been a lot of talk about microcephaly in the press in recent months, which is the condition Pip was born with. While I wouldn’t wish a life-limiting condition on anyway, Pip makes my world a better place and I am honoured to share her story with the world. She makes me smile and I hope our story makes you smile too!
