I’ve got some exciting news for you this morning… It’s time to go back to Rosefont Hill and spend the festive season with Sophie and Billy in a little novella. Christmas with Billy and Me will be available from 6th November. 

I can’t tell you how lovely it’s been to be reunited with these wonderful characters…especially at such a magical time of year!

Give Me LOVE Not LUV!

The word LUV has been around for quite a few years now but, after much reflection and careful consideration, I’ve come to the conclusion that I REALLY don’t like it. Not one bit. It’s cold, lacking in emotion and void of commitment. From what I can gather it’s a way of sending warmth without coming across as weird or overly enthusiastic towards the one you’re expressing your LUV to. But, to me, I can’t help but think it means, ‘You’re okay, but not quite worthy of my LOVE’, which is highly disappointing. In fact, being the big lover that I am, I can’t help but feel a little disheartened whenever the word LUV is used at the bottom of a message. If you don’t mean it, don’t write it! Just end it with ‘Take care’, ‘See you soon’, or, if you really want to highlight the fact that you don’t quite LOVE the person, ‘liking you, but not much more’… I think I’d be alright with that. Well, no, I’d have a good cry (I’m a loser like that), but at least I wouldn’t have the disappointing lull that a LUV-ended message can bring.

In a world where there is so much sadness and sorrow I think we should all be doing our best to spread a touch of kindness and a whole heap of LOVE…  LOVE boldly, unquestionably and unconditionally. Let people know when you LOVE them, and don’t hide behind a shoddy three letter version of the word that sounds the same but says something entirely different.

So please, do me a favour and keep your LUV until I’m worthy of your LOVE!
