You may be under the impression that fantasy authors lead totally wild and energetic lives. Well, I’m here to confess that although some days we do like to dress up as elves or Jedi and hang out at comic book conventions, sometimes we just like a quiet day down the beach with the halflings (kiddies) or going for a walk in the woods. Some of us are fairly quiet and introverted types, not unlike a skittish unicorn or rare water sprite.
My children finish up school today for the year, so we dropped into school briefly to gift the wonderful teachers with home decorated pinecones and coloured-in Christmas cards done by my little cuties. School teachers are such a big part of our lives and we have been blessed to have such a professional and dedicated bunch of them at our local school.
Now we’re off to make some rumballs (with the local favourite Bundy Rum) and White Christmas with cherries and smarties for Christmas gifts. Christmas cooking is da bombe and it’s great to have a stash for all the neighbours and visitors likely to pop in over the next 2 weeks.
Then we will have a swim in the pool with maybe a spot of volleyball or water pistol wars.
Now that I have dispelled all your fantasies of me doing Cosplay or Avatar-like party games, I’ll just be heading off on my broomstick (AKA exercise bike) and zooming in for Harry Potter with the halflings.
Have a great day everyone, cheers, Kasper.
