Saying Goodbye To Another Year

Another year has come and gone... and as much as I loathe to say it I got fuck all done in my writing life. I can tell you that I sent one last email to Fireborn Publishing about Moon Runners 2: I Won't Let You Go... I'm still not sure what's going on there. I know Brenna L has been ill... But I assume someone else would have let me know something by now.  Though, tomorrow is the first step in the rest f my life and when I get my writing life back on track... I got most of my plots worked out━well, kind of.

I'm not shy about telling the world that this year I'm so fricken tired. I feel like I haven't slept a full week for the whole year. Hopefully, next year will be better. Willow is getting worse in keeping me awake. sadly, I'm not a person who can sleep during the day as I always wake up worse than when I went to sleep. Poor Willow has not been coping too well with the heat.

I wasn't one of the people brave enough to go out and get a bargain at the Boxing Day Sales on the 26th... Emily & Elliot tell me it was crazily packed with people in Toowoomba. I did the sane thing and sat at home and watched the cricket 4th Test Match between England & Australia... even though we've already won the Ashes it's still good to watch... and that night we had Big Bash which is 20/20 cricket.

We have been having some wickedly hot days this summer. Thank God for Aircon. Without it, Mum & I would have melted. It got up to 39⁰ C one day, (I think that's about 102.2⁰ F) Let's hoping it starts to cool down soon.

Emily is getting bigger with every day that passes and she can't wait for March to roll around so that little Grace (unless the name changes) is born. If it doesn't cool down then at least let it rain so it feels cooler... the only problem then is I'd have to mow more often... LOL... it's a lose-lose situation.

Update On Plotting For 2018

For the last 2 days, I've been re-reading my own stories... because low & behold I should remember which character belongs in which series. So I have mountains of notes beside me...

for the next few days, I'll be working on the plotting for the last 3 stories in the Lancaster's Way series #3: Pre-loved (Chet & Grady)... #4: Riding Fences (Kelly Mack & Joshua)... #5: A Stuart Family Christmas (Not sure who about yet but one of Riley's brothers and will be set in Australia... Noah & Riley will be visiting Riley's home for the holidays).

This would be so much easier if I remembered all the character names and my existing storylines...  Remember not all of these will get written in 2018 it's more for me to remember where the hell the story is meant to be going━So far I have done...

1 - Sons of Evenmore 3: Fear The Scarlet Moon
2 - Sons of Evenmore 4: Pieces of You
3 - The Lines of Marsden 4: The Trail of Red Roses
4 - The Lines of Marsden 5: On the 12th Day
5 - The Lines of Marsden 6: And Then You Die
6 - Experimentals 3: Messages From The Dead

Okay, I have been thinking about this for a while now... I know I have said there will be 6 books  & a novella in each series... but for the life of me, I don't know how to make it possible anymore. You see I totally fucking stuffed up, and the first series will only end up with 5 books. Which in my eyes/mind for continuity sake means each of the next two series can only have 5 books & a novella. Thus on a whole, I lose three books.

I've tried to figure my way around it to keep the extra books in... but it's not happening. so my series of 21 books has become a series of 18 books (each series within the series consists of five full-length novels of 100+ K... and one 50-ish K novella) that is about a secondary character that I just want to write about... series one novella is about Keely & Asher.

I feel gutted about this, but I guess them's the brakes. I can only write what the characters dictate to me, and these guys and girls are telling me━the time of the vampire is over, and the time of the demon is about to rise.

One Of Those Days... Pets & Other Distractions

I'm having one of those days where if it can go wrong than it's going to. Willow decides yet again that if she is awake, then I have to be up with her, and as soon as I get up, get dressed, sit in my recliner, and turn on my freaking  computer━because hey, if I'm going to be up at that ungodly time of the morning (5 a.m.), then I'm going to try and do something productive. No sooner had I gotten settled, when the little witch curls up and goes to sleep.

So I stopped in at Facebook for like 5 minutes to check on some stuff, and low and behold, 3 hours later I'm still there... so not getting the work done that I wanted to do... I have since shut Facebook for the day, and will hopefully be able to concentrate better. Though, I did have a nice chat with Cinders.

It's now 9:30 a.m. and I'm ready to eat again because I had breakfast at freaking 5 a.m... We had screen doors fitted to the front and back door so at least now Willow can see outside again so she isn't as annoying/bored as usual. She loves watching the cars and trucks driving by of a night. 

Okay, today I still have to work on some of the synopsis plans... they may change some when it comes to the actual writing stage because let's face it. I've never been good at following my own synopsis when I've attempted them before, but at least they will give me an idea of what I was planning.

Tomorrow I have a major announcement about The Lines of Marsden series that I will share with you all. I've thought long and hard about it and there's just no way around it.

Seriously... WTF? & Gypsy Rose...

Why does my precious fur baby, Willow think it's perfectly okay to sleep away the day and then wake me up at 4 am because she doesn't want to be awake in the house by herself. she cries and cries until I get out of bed and sit in my recliner in the lounge room. she has been this way ever since Droogie had to be put down six weeks ago. She is driving me nuts.

It also doesn't help that she has suddenly had to become an indoor cat for awhile because we have renovations going on outside and part of her cat enclosure had to be dismantled. I'll be glad when she can go outside of a night again... maybe then, I'll get to sleep through the night...LOL. She's now sitting under the kitchen table looking at me all innocently like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth, but I know better. Her 17-year-old self is a royal pain in my arse, especially at 4 am.

Speaking of fur babies... Emily and Elliot have just adopted a baby cattle dog. the previous owners didn't want the puppy anymore. their loss is Emily and Elliot's gain... so I will be a Grandma twice over once to Gypsy Rose (fur baby) and Grace (human baby)... I just realise E, E & G, G. God, their weird. In truth, I bet they didn't even realise it. Gypsy Rose is named after one of my book characters (a werewolf in The Lines of Marsden) who is actually based on a mixture of Emily and her cousin Jared.

What's The Hap?

This week I'm trying to get all my stories set for MLRPress. I want to at least have a gist of where I'm going with each of the 9 stories for their label that I have on my 2018 schedule

I must admit some stories I can recall as if I wrote them yesterday, and others I have no clue what the storyline is about. I guess I'll have to do some re-reading before I write the next in each series. The best part is I get to fall in love with my favourite characters all over again.

I still haven't heard back from Fireborn Publishing about Moon Runners 2: I Won't Let You Go. To be honest I'm not sure what's going on... I've heard the head lady is currently having computer issues and playing catch up with everything. I might have to send out another email to see what's happening. Hopefully, she's okay as she was also recently ill as well.... and I know how that feels as my ears still aren't back to normal.

I've also gotten all manuscripts set in place for Fireborn for 2018 as well.

I'm also getting all my Pride Publishing stuff organised so that 2018 can run smoothly for me writing wise. I just want to get the job done next year seeing as I failed so miserably this year. 

I've worked out I only have to write 2,521 words per day... only more if I miss a day here and there... that's doable, right?

Updates, Whatnots & Writing Notes...

Well, it's been yonks since I've actually stopped in. I never made it to the end of NaNoWriMo this year as I'm still having problems with my ears and they are driving me nuts. Next year I'll have to make up for this year's epic fail.

Yesterday I set the Christmas tree up for Mum. And, this morning, I've been wrapping Christmas presents. It seems Emily & Elliot are just big Kids and can't leave them alone so I'm the secret keeper for the pair of them... Mind you I even had to wrap my own presents from them.

I have new neighbours... which amazes me as I honestly thought the house was condemned. Apparently, all they needed to do was update the wiring. It seems it's perfectly okay if the rest of the house looks like crap or falls apart--but in saying that, the new neighbour seems to be pretty handy and is fixing a lot of stuff.

I started weeding the garden today, but it decided to rain all over me. I'll finish it when it dries out a bit or else I'll be standing in mud. At least I got most of it done.

I'm actually waiting for the 2nd test match for the Ashes to start between Australia & England (Cricket). I have half an hour to wait. This test match s day/night test.

Writing Notes:

I'll be spending the whole of December writing up a synopsis for each of the stories that I plan to get written in in 2018 I plan on 12 but I have a list of 20 because I'm not sure which ones will be the 12... if that makes sense. I'll let you know in January what the 20 stories are in case I change my mind between now and then... Let's face it, with me that's very possible. 

2018 is the year I get my writing life back on track.

Family Dinners & Malcolm Young

Went to a BBQ at Emily & Elliot's last night with his Mum and step-dad... it was pretty awesome. Haven't laughed so much in a good long time. Gil & Morey just feel like they're a part of my family that I haven't seen in a while and are popping in for a visit... Let's just say poor Elliot hasn't got a hope in hell of ever living down the fly screen incident of his youth. The only downer was the weather wasn't very agreeablebloody raining.

My ears are feeling a tad better and my leg isn't as sore this morning. On Tuesday after I go back to Dr Bond I should find out just how much better they are. I can tell you I'm sick to death of medication.

On sadder news: I heard Malcolm Young died age 64 another music legend has passed on. As a group, they had so many awesome hits over the years. I guess he'll live on through his music like all the others who we have lost. Here's a bit of old school AC/DC just because I can.

Friday, 17 November 2017

Hard to believe that 2017 is nearly over and done withonly 44 days until the New Year is here. Honestly, I personally can't wait. I am so over this year and the two which preceded this one. 2018 has got to be better for me at least. I won't say it will be great for everyone because let's face it, that's a huge task to ask. I've had three crap years in a rowI think I'm due to have a good one now. I really need to get back into my writing. I hate not being able to write.

I'm still all tensed up, so I think that I may have pulled a muscle in my thigh when I fell in the garden yesterday. And because I use my legs so much throughout the day it hurts like a bitch. I hope it all clears up soon.

Not sure if I remembered to tell you I had to resend in Moon Runners 2: I Won't Let You Go because it went missing somehow... shit happens and I understand that. I'm now a week into waiting for the second time. I hope I don't have to wait for another three months. I'll let you know more when I do.

Willow, Yes, & Gardening...

Well, I finally managed to get Willow to eat something after the death of her brother, Droogie three weeks ago. She had been eating tiny amounts just enough to get by... My cat who has never eaten cat food in her life is absolutely loving Fancy Feast cat food. I don't care what it is as long as she is eating something.

She is not liking the fact that I'm now weaning her back off the milk. she loves milk, but sadly milk does not love Willow... it upsets her little tummy. She sits in front of the fridge because she knows that's where the milk lives in our house. It doesn't help that she is housebound while our house is being painted on the outside. Hopefully, only another week to go.

She still occasionally does the rounds of the house looking for Droogie, but mostly she is getting back to normal. Though she has become very clingy where I am concerned. she doesn't like me being out of her sight.

So as most of you heard... Yesterday, Australia voted YES! We have spoken, and now we have to just wait for the politicians to get it all together. the Prime Minister says will be done by Chrismas... we'll see. For some reason, I don't think Politicians ever get things done on time if there's nothing in it for them... Now if it was a vote for them to get a raise it would have been done last Easter. All I can say is, it's about bloody time. I may not be LGBTQI myself, but I strongly support those who are.

I did some gardening yesterday... mainly weeding, and because my ears still aren't back to normal I got dizzy spells and fell over four times, but at least it's done now. I must have wrenched something inside because now my whole body feels like I have been beaten to shit... or that I've done hours of very intense exercise and I'm still recovering... but really it was just me falling over... LOL. Luckily no one saw mewhat a sight that would have been.

I Have A Headache...

I just can't seem to kick this bitch of a headache. the more I try the harder she digs in and holds on. On a good note, my ears aren't as bad as the Dr's first thought. They're more filled with a bad case of dermatitis, which isn't helping matters. the specialist used this little vacuum that felt like he was trying to suck my eyeball out through my ear. I have to go back and see Dr Bond on the 21st━I'm so not looking forward to that. Though, I go to my regular Dr on the 13th for a check-up.

I did just sign up for some MASSIVE WINTER GIVEAWAY... Is it bad if I say I have no clue what it's for? But as soon as I find out I'll let you all know. I'm sure Dawn White will be filling me in soon on what's happening. I do know that I'm not the only author and that not all the authors are MM. I think they cross all genres. I'm sure whatever it is━it should be interesting as hell. I'll just have to promote my old stuff seeing as I haven't actually got any new stuff.

I've once again gotten in contact with FIREBORN PUBLISHING again to see what's happening with Moon Runners 2: I Won't Let You Go... seeing as it's been 4 months and I still haven't heard from them. I figure it's either gotten misplaced or deleted or something. Hopefully next time I'll have something to tell you. I've had manuscripts disappear on me before (not with Fireborn)... but it has been known to happen, so I can't hold it against them if it has happened this time. But enquiring minds want to know what the hell happened to it... Okay. Truthfully maybe I just remembered about it and figured I better ask when I realised how long it's actually been.

Update Time

My first week of NaNoWriMo has been a bust... I have a bloody double ear infection. I have been on drops and antibiotics that make me queasy as hell. so I've hardly eaten in the last week. I went back to the Dr yesterday and it's no better... so today I'm off to the ear specialist in Ipswich. I'm so not looking forward to that... but if I want to be clear-headed anytime soon I know it's where I have to go. I can tell you for the last week I've had the worst bloody headache. I will keep you updated on how I go at the specialists this arvo. Fingers crossed that it's not something major.

Willow is still looking for Droogie, and not eating as much as I'd like, but at least she's not starving as I'd feared she was doing.

Emily and Elliot are mostly moved into their new place... only the unpacking to go. So glad that it's them and not me. I hate moving house... it's when we realise just how much useless crap we have collected over the years.

R.I.P. Droogie

I had to say goodbye to my precious fur baby Droogie yesterday (16) he would have been 17 in December. I hated seeing him struggle and fought with the decision for the last two weeks. In my heart I know it was the right thing to do...  I'm going to miss him terribly. Now we only have Willow. The poor thing spent most of last night searching for Droogie and didn't really eat (I got her to eat some cooked chicken today). They haven't been apart a day since they were born from the same litter. I'm hoping she doesn't go downhill.

I Have A Headache Today

It's like my whole damn head is stuffed full of hot, and soaked cotton wool. I'm hoping it's because I had my computer set to the wrong settings (it was set to dim and brighten at will). Now that I have it set to a constant brightness I'm hoping my headache will finally go away. It doesn't help that it's a bloody gloomy and overcast day.

My new aircon goes in next week hopefully. the old one wa so big that it chewed up too much power. it cooled the whole house. Mum and I don't need that as neither of us like airconditioning in the bedrooms. so we are upgrading to a split system. I pick it up Tuesday From Harvey Norman... Hopefully, it will be better when the power bill comes around.

Emily is doing okay... still has morning sickness, and I'm still glad it's her and not me. Yeah, I know I'm a really good role model as a mother....LOL... She's a big girl she'll survive it. Our lives are all getting back to normal after the passing of dear old Dotty.

The weather is getting hotter. We are also coming into our storm season. I just hope 2018 isn't as hot as 2017 was or it's going to feel like we've all taken up residence in hell. Speaking of hell I need some names that start with LUC... what do you think of these ones for a story I'm mulling over. These characters will all be siblings... What do you think? here are the names and the meaning of said names.

Lucifer━Light Bearer (M) 
Lucien━Born at Daybreak (M)
Lucius━Bright (M)
Lucero━Luminious (M)
Luca━Man from Lucania (M)
Lucho━Warrior (M)
LucibelleChaste Light (F)
Luciana━Light Moon (F)
Lucetta━Light (F)
Lucilyn━Lighthearted Woman (F)
Lucina━She who brings children into light (F)
Lucretia━Succeed (F)

I just signed up for NaNoWriMo for 2017... Experimentals 3: Messages From The Dead, and Experimentals 4: Movements In The Dark (well part thereof of #4 just to make up the 50K).

This will be my platform to get back into writing. Hopefully, nothing else will happen to throw me off track. I actually like writing NaNoWriMo as it is fun writing to the 30-day timeline and trying to get everything completed by the due date.

Touching Base...

Okay... Life has been getting in the way of everything. Just when I think I have shit sorted out━something crops up and blocks my way. It makes everything very trying... but as someone very famous once said "Such is life.".

On the upside... Emily and the baby seem to be both coming along fine... though she never stops complaining about the heat. I wish I had a cure for her morning sickness... but I guess it's all a part of having a baby...  really don't remember having morning sickness at all when I was pregnant.

It was Aunty Dot's funeral today. So it's a sad day in the house, but life must go on. We must remember the good times, and God knows there were more than a few of them. Until next time take care.

R.I.P. Aunty Dot

On September 20th at 12:45pm... My mum's twin sister Aunty Dot (Dorothy Margaret Hain) passed away... 85 years young & she will be missed by all  (Aunty Dot is the one wearing blue). Now here are some songs by her favourite singer... the equally fabulous Mr Bob Marley.

Just Asking

Remember, just asking could be the start to helping someone who you may not even know even needs it.

Let's Play Catch Up

I've been slack lately and I really don't have a reason why. I can blame it on the renovations, but let's face it they really only happen on Sundays & Mondays. Lately, I've just been hanging out with my cats... Droogie is looking a little worse for wear. they're both getting up there in age, but Droogie is actually showing it more than Willow. I think he'll be the first to go... it will be a sad day as he is my baby.

I haven't been doing much writing as I would like, as I've been concentrating on reading the Rainbow Award books that I have to get through. I have a ton of them and I don't want to fall behind. I have to send in at least 10 of them today. I've had quite the variety this time around... some better than others, and some that I have absolutely loved from start to finish.

Life for the family is good in general... Emily still has morning sickness, but that is to be expected. All is still looking okay on the baby front. I'll keep you all posted the closer we get to my grandbaby arriving into the world.

NaNoWriMo is getting closer with each passing day... I think I have a plan kind of set in place for what I want to write for the month. Let's all pray that I can stick to it and not stray too far from the track. At this stage, I'm still planning to work on the next 2 books in the Sons of Evenmore series.

My Baby Is Having A Baby & Other News.

Yes, I should add that my baby isn't really a baby anymore, as she'll be 28 next January... Emily is due at the end of March so here's hoping everything runs smoothly for her... I got to go with her to the scan on Wednesday and see the babies heartbeat... and all I could think isthis shit is real now. Okay, that's all I can tell you about that, so now its onto...

OTHER NEWS: My glasses finally came back and I can actually see out of them, which is a good thing. So it means I can see again, and can get back into writing. I'm still working on The Diamond Rose 2: So Pretty On The Outside, & The Lines Of Marsden 4: The Trail Of Red Roses. I've also been semi plotting NaNoWriMo, but we all know with me by the time I sit down to write my NaNoWriMo this year it'll have changed completely... let's face it, we all know I never stick to a plan.

We've had a really hot couple of days. The poor cats (who are both 16) have really felt the heat. I'll just keep my eye on them for the next little bit and see how they are coping. They seem to be doing better today then they were yesterday, which is a good thing.

I've gotten myself some new cooking pots & pans a Flavorstone Infusion Grill, it 's like a steam grill, and a Tefal Pressure Cooker... things that will make my cooking lifer easier. I may not be the greatest cook, but I prefer cookware where nothing sticks. I've had some other Flavorstone cookware for a few years and have loved them.

We've started the renovations on the back veranda, and the house is getting painted on the outside this weekend. Well, the guys is starting. I'm not sure how long it will take him. We'll be doing more renos this weekend. I hope it's not too hot or too windy, or else we'll all be in cranky moods... or that could just be me. Anyhoo, I'm outa here, I'll catch you all on a whole other day.

Where The Hell...

Okay... I have searched my Dropbox, every memory stick, and even my external hard drive... and I seem to have lost the first 10K of Experimentals 3:Messages From The Dead. that I wrote for NaNoWriMo back in 2015... so when I start NaNoWriMo this year I'll have to start from the beginning... On a good note, I did find in my cleaning up, my hand written synopsis for Messages From The Dead... I just don't know how someone who is as anal retentive as I am about keeping track of shit could lose a story.

Last night I did take the time to take a couple of hours to skim through both #1: Blessed With A Curse, & #2: Running Into Zero Tolerance, and wrote down all the character names getting ready for the big write in November... when I'll be writing 3 & 4: Movements In The Dark back to back. To get both done, I need to write 2,667 words per day for November.

As you can see, I've made it to 5K in The Diamond Rose 2: So Pretty On The Outside... I won't be writing today as I have a family BBQ to attend today... it's going to be fun. The story so far is heading where I thought it might. Though, it's not exactly about who I thought it would be the main characters. At first, I thought it wold be about Tori & Darkan/Goliath... turns out I was wrong. It's two years later, and it's now about Wynn & Teagan... But I'm still hoping you will enjoy the read.

I'm at a standstill on The Lines Of Marsden 4: The Trail of Red Roses... but only until my glasses come back. Because, I know once I start back on it, I won't want to stop, and I can't do that with fuzzy lenses. 

I'll also be starting soon on Wardens Of The Guild 3: Heart Strings... but again I'm just waiting on the glasses. I'll have to go and do the whole write down all the character names for this one too. I'm really bad at forgetting names.

Still no news on Moon Runners 2: I Won't Let You Go... but hopefully I will hear from Fireborn Publishing soon.

Figuring Shit Out...

I'm still figuring out how all the new crap on the computer works.... Techno savvy I am not...

And then, every time I smile and say, "I've got this." the damn thing updates, and I don't got this no more. Why the hell does a new computer need so many updates? Anyway, no use complaining as no one has time to listen.

Recently I wrote down the name of every book, series, back burner book in my to be written pile and sent it to my beta reader so that James A can help me keep track. I need to get back into the swing of writing. and he will keep me on track with which books/series need to be done. Speaking of stories. I still haven't heard anything back from Fireborn Publishing about Moon Runners 2: I Won't Let You Go... so still keep your crossables crossed for me.

We will be starting the next stage of renovations on the house this weekend so I'm hoping it won't take forever. This picture is of my music set up area. It used to be Emily's office, but seeing as she has her own place I now have all my CD's & Records in there so I can listen to them when I want. I bought the kitchen hutch and it fit in perfectly. The books are my my David Bowie collection on the bottom and a few other artists on the shelf above. The Jon Bon Jovi Picture is Emily's... but it fit in so there it sits. It goes well with my other wall that faces the kitchen hutch.

Why Is It?

Why is it... when you get a new computer which is a simple upgrade or two from your last computer it's so vastly different it takes you forever to learn the simplest of things before you can use it━or is that just me? I feel like this new Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 (Surface Pro 5) is vastly different from the 3 that just died on me. Mind you, the pic shown is actually a picture of the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 that I first had, and one of Emily's best friend's now uses for UNI... I don't have a pic of this one but they basically look the same except I have a different keyboard & mouse.

And all the programs I've had to re-download are all kind of different now, especially Adobe reader... Why can't they leave things so I can figure them out. Then this morning Yahoo went and upgraded on me so it is all different... so now it will take me forever to figure out what the hell I'm doing there. I hate it when things change as I am so not techno savvy.

Even my office seems to be different... hence the reason I think the guy activated the trial version and didn't swap over my office from the old computer to the new computer. I suppose I will just have to wait until the trial version runs out to see if indeed my suspicions are true... if they are I'm up for additional costs seeing as the old computer has now been sent back for refund.

I'll be glad when I get my glasses back and hopefully this tie the lenses will be correct. it was only the one pair that were wrong, and of course they would have to be the pair I need for absolutely everything. I didn't realize how bad my old ones were until I had to start wearing them again.

It's Been Two Years Already

I can't believe it's been two years since my boobs have had to be squashed beyond belief, but as they say: No Pain━no sense of relief when you find out everything is all okay. Last time I had a bit of a scare when they found a slight shadow, but after a secondary examination it turned out to be nothing. So this morning I'll happily toddle off to my breast examination appointment at 9:15 am, and hope that I get another all clear result this time around.

Then in other news: I'll have to go and pick Emily up from the mechanics in Toowoomba as her car is in getting a couple of oil leaks fixed up. I just hope that I can remember how to get to the mechanics as I've only been there once before, and I wasn't driving. I'd been sitting in the back seat, so I really wasn't paying attention.

Also I'll go and check out a new computer seeing as this one lost about a third of it's charge overnight. Harvey Norman is having sales on at the moment so now might be the time to look into upgrading to a new one. I'll let you know what happened when next I'm on.

Well Finally!

My new glasses finally turned up, but I have to go back and get then tweaked as they don't sit right on my head. I think they may have gotten the multi focal lenses out of whack a little... Hopefully it's an easy fix... or else it's going to be as annoying as hell to wear them.

I watched the latest episode of Shadow Hunters this morning and I wonder just how far much more they are going to deviate from the books. Don't get me wrong, I still love watching the series. But when you kill off characters who are supposed to be alive, and then keep alive characters who are meant to die... I have to wonder... In saying that I really do like all the characters in the show. I like some of the characters in the show that I really didn't in the books which amazes me to no end.

I finally have my music area all set up so I can now listen to music all I want... The area looks great if I do say so myself. After being told I can decorate it anyway I want. I say so I can put all my skulls in there only to be told a resounding NO! How fair is that... In the end my mum filled it with rabbits and chickens, but I don't mind as my skulls decorate my bedroom anyway.

I'll be adding to my garden beds soon. Well, as soon as the guy comes and paints the outside of the house. The next portion of the garden will all be in pots. When Ted & I put up the shade cloth pergola, I didn't realise just how hard it was going to be to grow any type of grass (like impossible) So instead I'll turn it into a green house of sorts, and fill it with plants that love to grow in shaded areas.

My computer keeps draining itself of its battery life. Every time I turn the damn thing on it is as flat as a tack. So I might have to go and see what's happening tomorrow. I hope it doesn't mean I'm up for a new one. As this one is only about three years old, but I can't go any where, or use my computer anywhere unless I have a constant power source... It's a total pain in the arse. It'll probably cost me a fortune for a new one. I'll let you know the verdict the next time I'm on.

I've Been Thinking...

Yeah sometime it happens... the thinking that is, and lately it's been making my head hurt... or that could be because I'm still waiting on my new glasses to take away the fuzziness.

I've actually been thinking about music and people with beautiful voices. It could be because we lost Chester Bennington so recently, and I absolutely loved him as an artist... and David Bowie earlier in the year who was my all time fave singer. It got me thinking about other voices of people still alive who I love listening to.  So I thought I'd give you a list of  some of my favourite singers/bands and four songs from each for you all to check out.
