Are you doing something ultra-cool this half-term? Or are you just a teensy bit… well, bored? Chase away the blues and make sure life really is sweet… by baking some cupcakes or cookies, doing something fun with a friend or curling up with your fave CC book!

Whatever you do to brighten up the holidays, share it – so other CC readers out there can get inspired to try something cool, too! Just post your tips for a boredom-free half-term through the comments link below.

Here in Scotland, half-term is over (boo!!!) but my family and I had a fab time – we went to London and… wait for it… saw the Queen! (Yes, the REAL Queen! Really!) She was at a fab play, War Horse, based on the book by Michael Morpurgo… and she caused quite a stir! The play was so brilliant it got a standing ovation, too, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house… aw. We also shopped till we dropped in Camden, Covent Garden and the Kings Road, did lots of touristy stuff and even got to go behind the scenes at the Museum of London… spooky stuff!

So what did you do… or what are you planning? Let me know! And if you DO make some sweet treats, send me a pic… I’ll post the best ones and send a little prize to those that really catch my eye!

Remember… life is sweet!

  3. hello cathy, i absolutely love your books! i havent read all of them, but seriously the ones i have read are like so heart-felt and nice that you get drawn into the book from the first page. i loved Gingersnaps and Indigo Blue the best because they were so nice and the words made you relate to the character, then i liked Driftwood and Dizzy. I want to read angel cake & shine on Daizy Star!

  4. For the half term holidays, my best friends came over for a halloween sleepover. We went totally mad and stayed up for hours. I’m not sure my mum was too pleased!
    I love all of your books so much, and I have all of them except Angel Cake, but I’m hoping that I will get it for xmas. I’ve been borrowing it from my friend for about a month or so, re-reading it. You are a really amazing author! thank you so so so much for becoming a writer, otherwise where else would I get my weekly awesome book quota? xXx

  5. Although I’m at the age to be reading Lucky Star and Scarlett and those books, I love Daizy Star. Reading can get you very far, so I advise that, if your bored. reading with some hot chocolate on a cold day is best. 🙂
    Hugs, happiness and jam dougnuts,
