Catching up… and falling behind

Progress on one front is always balanced by a lag on another. The sun only shines at erratic intervals in the UK, you need to get out there and get to work. In the last two weeks we have reduced this DSCN7002to this.DSCN7095

I have spread it round the garden and some parts are done (darling crocus – Blue Pearl).



Others are half done – the veg bed.

DSCN7100While others are hardly begun…

The DIY is still pending. If you think watching paint dry is boring, trying watching plaster… DSCN7042  DSCN7107
And yet we have made progress in one room.


On the writing front Alison Williams has   added to her review of Border Line on Rosie Amber’s site, by giving me an interview on her own. and I have done some work on my Far East POW book.

Meanwhile the drizzle of emails has reached blizzard proportions, but the sun is shining and I must get out.

Tomorrow garden, writing, DIY or blog and email catch-up? I’ll have to roll a dice, check the colour of the sky or design a grid to show which is most urgent. This appeared two evenings ago. DSCN7058

Happy author gets review

Reviews are rare and wonderful things… as in someone has read all those words that you juggled with and let fall onto the page in what you hoped was the right order. When the review is from someone professional, that you have never met and they reach for the heart of your story… your cup runneth over.

I am thrilled by this review of Border Line on Rosie Amber’s book review site by Alison Williams.

Amazon UK continue to confuse me. Border Line appears under its eBook cover and you can find, and buy the print version (for £8.50), by clicking through to it. However, they also show the print version separately priced at… £22.50… !?%$£@!?
