This week's word is: MOVED

Hello, dragon fans. A major announcement this week. The Dragons' Den has moved! After 32 years of living in Leicester, which is right in the middle of England, the author and Mrs Author have decided to move to Devon, in the south west of England. They have bought a lovely house by the sea. The dragons approve! The whole process has taken nearly a year to complete, but it has been worth it. The house is quite old-fashioned, with lots of features from what British people would call 'the Edwardian period'. We went into it for the first time this afternoon and staked our places. Gruffen settled on the wood burning stove (very warm - and messy) and G'reth headed straight for the 'Aga' cooker. I, of course, went to the room the author will work in and settled on the windowsill. Once it was greenery and squirrels outside my window, now it's boats! The author wanted me to thank you all for buying his books over the years, because without those sales he would never have been able to move in the first place. He's thrilled. And so are we. It's a wonderful adventure. We hope great things will come from the new house, including whatever we decide to work on next... Until next time. Happy reading. Hrrr!
