It's arrived! The day we've been waiting for!
When we finally got to see the final result - it's a proper real life book! More importantly, our book!
We knew it was on it's way - and Nic arrived extra early almost lynching the postman when he turned the corner towards Halfpenny Home HQ! But what a scary moment too!
As only a handful of copies are available at the moment we've only been allowed one copy to share between us - and so far we've managed not to fall out! Nic even slept with it by her side on that first night!!!
Seeing our names, and name of the shop, on the front cover was a really special moment. There were more than a few squeals of excitement!
The book has been stroked, sighed over and has even been baptised with champagne courtesy of Harriet!
Gavin Kingcome's photography has really captured the essence of Halfpenny Home and it is so exciting to see the familiar surroundings in print for all to see!
We should probably end with an apology for our self indulgence and over use of exclamation marks - we hope you'll forgive us!
Jacqui & Nic
PS It's out on 10th March (UK) end of March in the US!
