Sorry that I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been attending the chronic pain clinic at the General Hospital. It’s an all day every day thing, so I’m exhausted and sore. But hopeful. We do gentle exercises designed to increase mobility, talk to a shrink for help with the anxiety surrounding long term pain and re-injury, and Read more…

I got THE BEST quilting/ sewing/ embroidery machine ever!  It not only has the embroidery hoop and about a hundred pre-programmed stitches, you can add stitches from jpgs!  My old sewing machine, a lovely, easy to use, basic model will be going to a friend.

Thursday, I’m in town until 9pm for a writers group. Friday we leave for Ad Astra.  Get home Sunday late at night, and I should go to a Read more…


Right now I’m reading Val McDermid’s article on her writing routine. She gets up at 9am, starts working by 11. This is me! I get up around 830am, drag my bones out to get dressed, have a coffee, and am at the computer by 10. I then do email and blogs for a while, just like her. Read more…


Happy Mother’s Day, mom… a little late.  In my defence, I did remember on the day, and the day after, I just couldn’t get through on the phone, or you were out.  Then my jerk brain said “Great, reminded you twice. My job here is done! And I forgot. I really should have remembered, the 14th was Read more…


In four days my dear hubby and I head to Hawaii for a nephew’s wedding. It will be only the second time we’ve travelled as a couple (we met in 1998!) that wasn’t to a family member’s house or a writing conference. The first was a cruise with my mom for her 70th birthday in 2005. I Read more…
