Holy Moley ~ It's Been A Month...

Honestly, the only thing I can say is... besides being slack... I've just been caught up with family. 

1) I've had Mum at the doctors a bit over the last couple of weeks. 

2) I've looked after Grace while Emily has sat for her uni exams for her law classes.

3) I've been busy in the yard and garden.

4) I've been busy writing up a ton of new story ideas. I had to get them down on paper so I didn't forget them.

5) I've had a really sore jaw... no clue what I've done to it. I can't remember hitting it at all. but I hope it gets better soon.

I'll try not to be as slack in the future. Hopefully, most of the everyday mundane stuff is done... but next month I still have a fair few doctor visits with Mum. so I'll be out for most of those days. We have a definite chill in the air here today. I can finally say Winter has come... but in a couple of hours, it'll probably be stinking hot again. Though one-day last week, we woke up to -1°... But in all honesty, I love the cooler months.

Grandma Duty... & Other Stuff

Yesterday, I was on Grandma duty. I'm not saying that Oliver and Robson were Jealous of having to share me with Grace... but they stuck glued to us all day. Mind you, I think Oliver believes Grace is one of his kittens (like he thinks Robson is). Thank God she's not allergic like her mum.

I didn't get any writing done yesterday, but I am still working on The Lines of Marsden 4: The Trail of Red Roses. All I'll say is that I hope I can get it back to where it needs to be by the end of the damns tory for the next book to start.

Though Grace and I did watch the last season of Haven... I'd forgotten some of what had happened. I love that show... Duke Crocker is still my favourite character... followed closely by Dwight Hendrickson. Though after reading Stephen King's: The Colorado Kid... I never worked out how they based the show off that book except for the murder of James Cogan... because the rest of the TV series was so different... 

Other than that all is well in my world... a few headaches here and there, more so when I forget to take my medication. I have a ripsnorter of one today.

Still waiting to hear about a publication date and cover on Moon Runners 2: I Won't Let You Go.

I've also been working on retweaking TASH into a series of 6 books instead of 1... now I just have to come up with a series title... and find the time to write it.

What's The Hap?

I had to spend the morning in the garden again because the cats knocked down all of my mother-in-law's tongues (snake plants), so I had to transplant them to a safer area of the garden. Hopefully, this time they'll stay safe. I still have a little bit of rearranging to do down there but I'll get it all done eventually. I also have to mow at some stage today.

I spent yesterday writing out plot notes on a new story idea... but then thought I might intermingle it with what I already have for THE HUNTED... to see if I can get that story out of my back burner pile.

I'm still waiting to hear back about cover art on MOON RUNNERS 2: I Won't Let You Go. I have sent an email asking for an update on the cover and a release date. I will let you all know as soon as I hear something.

Also working on THE LINES OF MARSDEN 4: The Trail of Red Roses I'm trying to get a bit more done. I don't want to start slacking off now.

Mother's Day has come and gone and I got a beautiful collage of pictures of my granddaughter, Grace... I just have to find a spot to hang it up in the house. She is such a little cutie.

For The Love Of A Grandchild

My granddaughter Grace might only be just under 2 months old, but I have never seen a movie calm her down like this one does. It's good that it does, but bad for us that listen to it over and over and get the damn songs stuck in our heads.

The minute she hears the music she starts flinging her arms and legs around and gurgling as if she's singing along. Thank God she is with her Mum & Dad most of the time and I only get it sporadically. but every day Emily sends me a new video of her dancing to one of the songs.

I think she likes Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron and the Bearded Lady the best out of all of them. though I think the song she goes craziest for is [This is me]. Unlike her mother who lets the whole movie play. I just skip through to the songs, but that will only last until she's old enough to work out what the hell I'm doing.

If I have to have it stuck in my head then so do you...

Playing Catch Up

Trying really hard to get to 50K today on The Lines of Marsden 4: The Trail of Red Roses. I've already marked it off on my blog so now I can't stop until I reach my goal.

Chris and the guys are out and about to kick some but where it comes to Venetia. They've found a way to deplete some of her power base without her knowing.

I'll spend the rest of the day on this and update you again on Monday to let you know how I'm going with it all.

Just Me & Updates.

I have a really bad headache today. nothing I can do has helped. I can't even concentrate enough to get past 2K in my wordage on The Lines of Marsden 4: The Trail of Red Roses... I can tell you the story has gone AWOL from my plot outline there is no hope of recovery.

Though on other news I had to redo the cover art sheet for Moon Runners 2: I Won't Let You Go and send it back in. So hopefully I'll have something to show you all soon.
