My News

I went back to work Monday, the flu not exactly behind me but certainly not wiping me out although residual tiredness, fuzzy brain and sinus pain lingered. There isn’t much to report this week. A busy week at work which left my brain spinning on more than one day! My sister and I have decided to sign up for the Kew/Richmond half marathon later in the year so will start the training shortly. This weekend has been a bit of a wipeout as a leak from the property above me come through both of my floors. So I’ve been washing towels and sheets which luckily took the brunt of the leak.

Writing News

This week I hate to admit has seen no more than a couple of hundred words added to my current WIP as the long work hours and busyness of this week has left me unable to focus on my writing at all. This has to stop. I have too many books that need to be completed this year.
