There used to be a joke in our house... there are 5 of us in here.
Only published authors were allowed certain Privileges... the wife ( published social work articles) and our youngest- Ella-13 ( published poems in anthologies) held the privileges..
Until the local micro news site i volunteer for decided to publish an anthology of work. I am in the anthology and so now have access to the same privileges Ros and Ella do..
That made me happy... i now have access to the same secret stash of choccy diggies that the girls do... don't tell James and William.. unless they can get published too.
