I am on a good un today, in a fine ol’ mood(so far at least).

Made much, much better by ‘A calendar of tales’ being released..and having got to be a small part in it all.

Neil gaiman has been a favorite author of mine for a long time now and I used to read Coraline to my youngest daughter Mercy (it is also one of her most frequently watched movie favorites).

When I first saw the ‘call’ for submissions I knew I had to give it a go..tbh I didnt think we stood a cats chance in hell of getting anywhere given the standard of entries, so when the ‘youve been selected as a shortlister’ email came through I was thrown sideways, though not as sideyways as when another email came through saying that Neil himself has chosen my two entries(for March and Jan) as runners up..and we were going to be on the website..

It took around 10 minutes to calm down a really hyper 8 year old when I told her :D TBH that part was probably the best moment of it all, to see her so excited.

They even used the pirate shot in one of the blackberry videos o.O

Up until recently I had hit a wall workwise, we run a ferret rescue centre from home, so time to shoot was sparce and I had let it all slide, my inspiration had just buggered off..and the lack of spare time to shoot only compounded that..

Its given me a well needed ass kicking all this, to start picking up my camera more often…

In fact, its given Mercy and I a lot more than we thought..and a massive massive thank you to Neil Gaiman himself.and all those involved :D
