The Yellow Room



This isn't quite the yellow room I'd imagined, but all I could find! It's a bit too bright, isn't it? Not exactly the cosy little den I'd envisaged. Anyway, just to say that it should be just two more weeks before The Yellow Room Magazine is ready to send out to subscribers. Exciting, isn't it? I can't wait for the feedback! I hope we'll have a few lively letters pages similar to those in QWF.

The Yellow Room Competition closes today. I'm hoping for a few more entries in the post, but so far we have over a hundred, which isn't bad considering it's the first year the competition has been running. I'm rather miffed with Royal Mail, as our post wasn't delivered till 5pm yesterday. What's all that about? I remember the good old days when I lived out in the sticks and it was always delivered at 7.30am. The day doesn't feel as if it's started properly until the mail arrives.

I'm almost up to date with submissions and have about three to read. However, printing off acceptance and rejection letters is proving difficult, as my printer needs a new black ink cartridge and it seems as if Viking no longer do their 'order before 12 noon and deliver same day' service. Oh well.

On a more personal note, I've been researching a 'way of eating for life' in the hope of dropping at least another stone and keeping it off. I haven't found the answer yet! And I'm hungry!

I quite agree with you about the day not starting properly until the postman comes Jo! Ours hasn't been yet - and what am I doing? Sitting in my PJs buying ribbon from Ebay...

I hope the competition goes well. Alas, I missed the deadline!

I missed the deadline too. But I have subscribed, so am looking forward to receiving the new magazine! Well done on getting it all sorted...

Hi Jo, It's great to find out you've started another magazine. I used to look forward to getting my QWFs. I'll be subscribing to The Yellow Room. Congrats, and all best wishes on its launch.

Very yellow - sunshine and butter - bound to be cheering I should think!

Good luck with all the judging, Jo, and with the Yellow Room magazine. I mentioned the competition on my blog - it would be interesting to know if any of 'my' readers entered! Oh, and well done on all that exercise you've been doing - I was exhausted just reading about it!

Nice to see some previous QWF subscribers are reading my blog. Nice to hear from you, Jean and Lorna. The new mag is at the printers as I write and I should be taking delivery of the first issue any day now. By the way, Lorna, I no longer home educate!
