Celebrate the small things

Another busy week and somehow we seem to have crept into February!

This week I'm celebrating completing another chapter in my current manuscript. Would have liked to do more, but as I said busy week all round and I have been really tired by the evening!

Time Travelling with a Hamster by [Welford, Ross]I read another MG book this week  ~Time Travelling with a Hamster by Ross Welford.

On his twelfth  birthday Al receives a letter from his dead father. He learns his father built a time machine and he wants Al to find it and travel back in time to save him. 

Al soon discovers that time travel requires bravery and imagination. It also requires lies, bending the rules and avoiding bumping into yourself! His is accompanied on his daring adventures by his pet hamster, Alan Shearer.

I found this a touching tale of dealing with heartache and grief but told with humour. I also learnt a lot about the potential scientific issues involved in time travel!

Happy weekend

  1. Glad you made progress with your story and read a good book, too. Enjoy the weekend.

  2. Pleased you're getting on with your book, hard work but woth it.
    What a heartfelt book you have read.


  3. Congrats on another chapter down. Have to watch a lot of things with time travel

  4. Hi Annalisa - it's difficult to get on with things at this time of year ... so well done for what you've achieved ... travelling with a hamster sounds a good way to educate us and kids about time travel - not sure I'd like to meet myself! Cheers Hilary

  5. Congrats on finishing another chapter - it's more writing than I've done! Have a great weekend :)

  6. Good progress :-) Have a good weekend, nice and calm after Doris!

  7. That does sound like a good book. I don't know if I'd ever tackle time travel in a book. So many ways to get tripped up. I am struggling with my manuscript on other issues though--need to cut and clarify.

  8. Love the idea of a hamster called "Alan Shearer" :) Well done on writing - bit by bit will see it through! Have a great week :) Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace
