What does a typical day look like?
I wish there was a typical day. Actually no, I don’t, I quite like that it’s so exciting. I could be traveling, I could be cooking but I’ll always be writing. Writing is my late-found love.
What have been the recent highlights in your blogging career?
Being signed by Penguin to write a memoir was an incredible experience. Never in my life did I ever consider that I could have a book published and that people would want to read about my life.
Well, the book comes out this year for Mother’s Day and after that, who knows. I quite like that.
Here are just some of the goodness you’ll find on Not Quite Nigella.
