SPOOKILY CRYPTIC!!!

yay!  only a feW days till halloween, one of my top days of tHe yeAr – possibly because my favouriTe colour’s pink – nah, not really – tIs orange of courSe! i absOlutely love it. i even have a bRight orange dining table Which cheers me up every time i sit At it because it is juSt so sunny. and it’s the Time of year wHen all thE shops in town are stuffed full of orange pumpkiness. agggh… being a fan of all things kitsCh and plastic i have to try very hard nOt to buy it all up!
i have aLways been a big fan of interior design and lOts of my minnie piper fans write to tell me they woUld like to be interior designers when they gRow up. I always tell them to go for it because it is such a great job. before being a writer i was a designer and cOmbined it with mural painting.  it was so much fun! and oF course anY of you who know my books will see hOw this has influenced them! minnie and dot are both very into how their bedrooms look!
when i was yoUnger i was obsessed with purple and had deep puRple bedroom curtains and matChing pelmet with white mini pom-poms running along the bottom. my quilt was purple gingHam and my wardrobe doors were a deep shIny purple gLoss enhanced by my david cassidy poster, the Dream popstar of tHe day (oh yes he was to any dOnny osmond fans out there whO’d care to argue). i still remember that room viviDly and affectionately and it was what inspired the ladybird code.
hmmm, you are proBably thinking by now that thEre is something not quite right about this blog. and you woulD be absolutely right. you see it is all Really just an excuse to be nOsy. designers are always nosy. we cannot go past a window lit up at night without looking in. so what i aM dying to know is…?
