A new sunrise

Greetings from the great beyond! Firstly can I apologise for the non-existent posts over the last year or so. My life has taken a dramatic twist and I am still running to keep up with it all. After many years of crying and stalking publishers on the net, I had my first short story published.Continue reading “A new sunrise”

Don’t Do That! – Five for Friday

I’m running so late today. It’s been a frantic week as we’ve had builders working on the house. ‘The noisy one’, was sent home from school with chronic earache and ‘The bitey one’, is teething and as a result, extra bitey. He has also become a fan of early wake up calls, the most recent beingContinue reading “Don’t Do That! – Five for Friday”

Five for Friday – Things I’ve learned so far!

Nope I haven’t left the country, fell down a well or been eaten by cats. I’m doing NaNoWriMo and am sooo behind I’ve taken to drinking more wine and walking round graveyards to prove to myself that things could be worse. The first week was fantastic, I was full of energy and enthusiasm and flewContinue reading “Five for Friday – Things I’ve learned so far!”

Thanks but…

…no thanks. Maybe you should stick to colouring in – here have a pencil. On second thoughts, give it back, these baby’s are hard to come by! Yep, that will be another NO then. Another, don’t call us and we’ll forget we ever had your number! But I’m telling myself it can’t be all badContinue reading “Thanks but…”

I’m a failure!

It’s something we don’t talk about enough, but without it we’d never experience our biggest successes. Failure is what drives us to do more, be more and push ourselves beyond the limits we thought were possible. “When people succeed they tend to party, when they fail, they tend to ponder”          Continue reading “I’m a failure!”
