Hi, I'm back (waving at everyone furiously).
Sorry it's been so long since my last post but I've been gutting my kitchen, and boy did it need it. I don't have pictures of before we started but here's one when we took the cupboards off of the wall:
Anyway, after many days and evenings of work I finally have the kitchen I want (the first time ever I've had a brand new kitchen) - here it is:
It is nice to have a room that feels warmer and looks clean when I've tidied up.
So that has kept me busy and I've hardly had time to write.
A funny thing though, I took my notepad to my doctors appointment because she's never on time. I got half an hour of writing done before my name came over the speaker; stuffing it into my bag I never gave it a thought until the next time I found five minutes and guess what? - I'd stopped in the middle of a word. All writers are used to getting stopped in the middle of a paragraph or even a sentence but to return weeks later in the middle of a word, I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry. I chose laughter.
Slowly I'm clawing back some writing time and with a novel and two short stories on the go, plus a short story to edit, I need it.
Well, that's all for now. Just wanted to let you know I hadn't abandoned you.
Keep reading, writing, and whatever else you have to do.
Until next time,
