I’m going for tea with Judy Finnigan!

Back in October I entered a competition on the Tesco Books Blog. The competition was to celebrate Eloise, the debut novel by Judy Finnigan. The prize? To go to tea with the great lady.

I didn’t hear anything so assumed someone else got lucky. OK, I admit, I grumbled a bit but got over it.

Then today out of the blue an email appeared in my inbox asking if I was still interested in the prize as I’d been chosen as a winner!

I loved This Morning, watched it throughout my student years when Judy and Richard hosted it, adored the tea time show on Channel 4 too – and the associated book club.

So I’m a happy Cath today, and can’t wait to go to tea with Judy!

Broken, a collection of my short stories, is out now on Amazon for Kindle here

      Thanks! Yes, since their book club, reading seemed to become ‘the thing’ to do :-)

    Yay! The question we want to ask is Judy a darjeeling, bubble, gunpowder or a builders’ tea kind of woman?

    I reckon it’s builder’s tea, but I’ll be sure to make a note!
