Sarah Broadley's Blog

- see posts below from Sarah's world of writing, tea drinking and literary shenanigans

It’s been years….

…since I had a hot date. Yes it might have been with my youngest wee rugrat, but it was still ‘a date’ as such because we ate and drank together in a cafe lol. I’m not sure if you have the same kind of life that I lead but it was magic and not in a spells and potions kind of way – just a greatness that leaves a wee warm feeling in your belly and a big satisfied grin on your face. I can’t remember only ever having one child to look after of an afternoon. First question to

My Favourite Place

Well now that the school holidays are nearly over, I have had a couple of nanoseconds to reflect on where I go from here and try to get some writing done – failing miserably I might add.  So in true Sarah Broadley style, I have entered some competitions with the hope of publication or even just some recognition would be nice 🙂 Well, what else do you do of an afternoon when watching Andy Murray get his first gold at the Olympics…and yes I was blubbering like an idiot along with the rest of you. Scottish Book Trust : I

Rain rain go away, come back another day!

Grrrrrrr. That’s all I can really say about the rain these days. We are better off than some as we are a sandbag-free zone, but it is just endless. I thought we were meant to pack away our wellies for the ‘Scottish Summer’, but alas, not a hope. I have now updated my blog site, yes I know it’s been a while, so please feel free to have a wee dander and let me know what you think. What’s a girl to do though when it’s raining so hard the cats don’t even want to go outside? School holidays are

There is no good or bad news, there is only news…

As the famous (well in my wee boys minds anyway) Oogway the wise turtle once said, there is no good or bad news, there is only news! So, the bad news first… As most of my friends are aware, I entered a competition run by the Borders Writer’s Forum to raise much needed pennies for the Sick Kids Foundation. The winner would have their entry read out at the Borders Book Festival on Saturday 16th June along with receiving some beautiful crystal and going home with an amazing accolade under their belt. As the theme was to be ‘Illness &

The Grey-haired Lady

Yes, that’s right folks – it’s me!! Hands up, I am the lady of grey-haired qualities, well according to wee C anyway. There I was, minding my own business, helping my little cherubs become the studious and fast learners that they ought to be (yeh right as long as they can read and write then I am a happy camper) and giving it some large to the Curriculum of Excellence, as you do, from the comforts of our humble abode. When our conversation takes a wee turn for the worst: Wee C: Mum? Me: Yes? Wee C:  I’m not very

And now for something different…

You may be aware that I like to write rhyming stories. So, it comes with great trepidation and a large amount of courage to announce that I have stepped over to the dark side for a brief moment in time! After spending numerous hours researching the pro’s and con’s of eye patches and trying to figure out which public domain would be best suited to help with my written word on this subject (see watcha doin’ for a better explanation), I came across a competition for writers through my bible aka The Writers and Artists Yearbook 2012. However, there is
