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.
