Oh my Lord - how did I get all the way through October without coming back to say Hi to my silent and invisible readers! The only thing I can put it down to is the fact I started a new job at the end of September and have been getting into a routine with a new shift pattern (and finding my feet) ever since! Plus hubby Steve finally retired from Tesco after 34 years service and is trying to find ways to now fill his time. The beauty of my new job is that I am off three full days every week and every other weekend means I don't work from finishing time Friday to starting time Tuesday. Four seven hour shifts a week means I get whole mornings or late afternoons/early evenings at home. Yay! Magic! I now have the best work/life balance ever and Steve and I can do a lot more together, Run Of The Mill stuff like shopping, housework and tidying the garden and Terribly Exciting stuff like going places and weekends away. So, I hear you ask, doesn't that mean I will also have more time to write? Well, dear reader, that is the plan, but we all know the best laid plans of mice and men etc etc etc!
I haven't got a great deal to tell you in the Writing stakes, really. Poetry seems pre-dominant at the moment. Well, that and The Young Writers which is absolutely flying right now. It has proved so popular that I do find myself wondering what will happen when I decide to call it a day - which is bound to happen sooner or later. I'd still love to write a book about it because it has been such an exciting experience but what I really need to do is write another book for children, so you see my quandery. Lots of ideas, not enough time. Og Mandino said that in The Choice.
Anways guys that is it for now. I'll be back as Arnie says. Keep smiling. Hugs and kisses!
