What I've been getting up to (for those of you who don't see my random facebook updates)

Almost a month has gone by and I haven’t blogged (slaps wrist). Sorry for my silence but I’ve not had much to report really. I got a certificate through the post for the mini creative writing course that I did. Thanks to all who sent messages of congratulation of Facebook. Twas very lovely you! Of course you might not have seen me announce such things if we are not buds so please let me know if you want my FB name or give me yours and I’ll add you.

I hosted the last 2 coffee mornings over on the novel racers blog. I had some great feedback so if you haven’t seen my posts or the comments please visit the site.

In non writing related news I’m still packing and the other night I watched ex boyf cram all his worldly goods into his mary poppins handbag type car boot. I thought that would be hard to watch, it was but only because I was trying to watch the BB final and he kept leaving the front door open letting the cold air and noise in. We’ve come out of things unscathed and I don’t feel any bitterness at all. I’m just glad we’ve stayed friends, I know some ex couples aren’t so lucky.

Monday night I saw a spiritualist. Before that night I felt so lost, not knowing what the hell to do with myself. I had become unable to trust my instincts and make my own decisions. I’d kind of become a bit poor me and what’s the point. I had questions about life, love and my career.  She told me I would have 5 children (eek) and meet someone soon.  More importantly she told me I would be successful with my writing but that I needed to stop holding back and be more colourful.  I know some people think its all rubbish but she helped me find my way, like a kind of therapy.  Best of all I didn't have to pay for her time, so there was nothing untoward going on there.


  1. So glad the ex's move out went without any hitches. So glad that you have remained friends. And if going to a spiritualist does it for you - good for you I say. Have a great BH weekend. Caroline x

  2. I hope you actually want to have children! ;-) Congratulations on the creative writing course.

  3. Wow! 5 kids - get ready to get busy (in more ways than one)! :) Congrats on the writing course.

  4. Congratulations on the writing course! That's brilliant news :-)

    It's always a bit sad when a relationship comes to an end but at least your still friends and it's not been too horrific!

  5. One word about the kids - don't go for natural childbirth it is highly over rated. Just kidding - children are a joy. Glad to hear that your life is heading in the right direction.

  6. I'm glad you're okay and that you've remained friends. It always makes it easier somehow.

    Not so sure if I'd be thrilled at the five kids bit, but the writing prophecy sounds great. Go for it.

  7. Caroline - Yeah will deffo be going to see her again. I finally have some direction x

    Queenie - thank you - I do want children although Id not banked on that many. Oh well the more the merrier.

    Talli - thanks, lol your comment made me laugh

    Carol - thank you. I'm pretty sure we are fb buddies already but will go check to make sure x

    Colette - ha ha, I will take heed of your advice, although not sure i mentioned in my post but of the 5 there will be twins so i would only have to go through it 4 times. Time will tell if its true.

    Debs - Thanks, I know bit scary about the kids but its nice to look forward so things.

  8. 5 children - yikes! I'm sure the successful writer bit will come true though :o)

  9. Thanks Karen - I will certainly keep trying
