A busy old week

Last week as the title suggests was really quite a busy one... and a good one.  The bank holiday weekend was spent in Swindon watching the men cook up a bbq and then forage for fire wood.  Boyf and I spent Bank Holiday Monday watching my very best friend and her fella get married.  We spent the night in this beautiful old Manor House where we skipped breakfast and opted to spend our Tuesday off lying in and having a breakfast of tea and complimentary cookies.  These were soon worked off in my Body Pump class which I have only just recovered from - I didn't realise I had quite so many muscles to annoy.  Sadly it was back to work on Wednesday, Thursday brought a bbq for my neices birthday for which I received just in time my copy of Stunt Bunny: Showbiz Sensation by Tamsyn Murray.  It would seem she's a little too young to read herself so I shall take great pleasure in reading it to her.  Saturday I spent sizzling on Brighton beach with Lolly before heading off for a late afternoon wedding where 2 of my very good friends also tied the knot.  The gorgeous food I have consumed has played havoc with my waistline and as a result I have been suffering from chronic heartburn - me thinks my body wants a word no?

Somehow in amongst all of these wonderful (and tiring) goings on I still managed to find time to get in my short story for my fortnightly writing group.  It was received better than all of my previous stories so I was really pleased with that.  It was a Halloween piece which with the helpful comments I received from the other members I was able to rework and send off to Jill at The Weekly News today.  Fingers have been glued cross (which makes for difficult typing so am going to stop now)

Have fab tomorrows everyone



  1. Blimey, two weddings in a week, I think I'd have heartburn too! Well done for getting a story written and subbed in amongst all that lot, best of luck with it.

  2. Blimey girl, you have indeed been busy!! Congrats for finding the time to fit in the writing...I don't know how you do it!

  3. Don't know how you fit it all in. Loved reading your story Cheryl. It was a great one and am sure it'll be finding a new home very soon.


  4. You've certainly been very busy. That manor house looks gorgeous and just the sort of place I'd love to stay in.

    Good luck with the sub to TWN.

    PS There's an award for you over at mine. x

  5. Wow, you have been busy. Good luck with that story - it was great.

  6. Wow, you *have* been busy (to echo the other comments!). That Manor House sounds divine!

    Good luck with the submission. Can't wait to read your ten things, too!

  7. What a fab, but busy holiday! I could use a break myself soon, but maybe with less goings-on ;) Good luck with your story!

  8. Queenie – lol I know and not one of them were my own! Typical. Although it puts me off the whole fuss of weddings. V. Stressful. Thanks for the luck!

    Carol – I know, I can’t remember what it was like to be bored, seriously.

    David – Thank you! I hope it finds a home. I hope they all do, one acceptance would be the biggest fattest boost for me. x

    Debs – Thank you! It was very quaint although it made me laugh because the flat screen tv looked totally out of place in our room.
    And thank you again for my award. I shall get my 10 things sorted tomoz at the latest.

    Colette – Thank you, as was yours. I hope you get it subbed soon because it was such a good twist which I love!

    Talli – Thank you! Ten things to be done tomorrow as I have an aquafit class tonight and it always wipes me out. The Manor House was lovely, a really nice little getaway.

    Carolina – Me too, am off to Jersey next week so cannot wait for few days away (again) Thanks for the luck and for visiting 

  9. Your story is great - I really enjoyed it and will keep everything crossed for it.
