because if I did they would all have left by now anyhow, given the time between updates on my blog here. Busy is the only way to describe life right now, kids home on school holidays, transcribing to be done and assignments to start and finish.
I have been researching a lot lately, looking for information on writing, hints and tips, things not to do etc. In the process I discovered a new author whom I think I will really enjoy. A link led me to her website, and the whole tone of the site really appealed to me. She also has excerpts from her books available, ususally the first chapter. Already I am dying to find out what happens next, so off to the bookstore we go to see if any of her work is available here. Unfortunately some of the authors I want to read at the moment are unavailable in Australia, which means waiting, waiting, waiting... although Mum is going to try and pick some up in London for me if possible YAY!
Weight wise things are not looking rosy after the wedding last weekend in Manly. A gain of 800g this week puts me back up close to 76kg again. So back on the straight and narrow this week in pursuit of my lowest weight for 2005.
One thing that I really noticed this weekend is how much eating badly really makes me feel bad. I had really awful indigestion on Saturday night and just felt so slow on Sunday and Monday. I am sure not enough sleep and too much rich food and alcohol are the culprits and I have to cut these bad habits from my life. I am getting too old now to put up with feeling bad all the time.
Time to make my life a healthy place.
