Au Revoir

Dear readers - I am going away.
Leaving the country, that is, for the next month to swan around New Zealand, have lots of fun and hopefully bag a rich sheep farmer for the Monster. Unless you have crawled out from under a rock in the last few days (or you don't know me and have never read this blog before), you will know how long the Monster and I have been planning and looking forward to this trip. Even though I am leaving tomorrow, I still can't quite believe it.
The bad news is, I probably won't be blogging here while I am away. I have my November Adventure blog, about writing a novel in a month - while travelling! and the Monster and I will have a blog as well, so you will have to be content with those blogs until I get back. I hope you will visit and read them, enjoy them and even get the odd chuckle out of them.
Until then, thank you to everyone who reads this blog (or any of my blogs) and comments. I'm sorry I haven't been able to acknowledge your comments recently, but I have been really busy writing (for a change!) over the last few weeks and it cut down on my on line time. Imagine!
Until December, lots of love

Mad Dog

I am so angry with Janna. I got up early this morning to write. She wanted to go out to the toilet, so I took her out and she got a drink as well, and then I took her back to my room. She usually curls up on her bed, but this morning she was really restless and was pacing up and down. She came over to me and jumped up on me. She knows she is not allowed to do that, and I told her to get down. She seemed to settle down, so I took my laptop on my knee and continued writing. Then Janna came over again, jumped up and raked her massive paws across the laptop key board. Two of the buttons went pop and flew off. I was so cross. I found the buttons, but I can't fit them back onto the keyboard and now my laptop looks like some junk yard reject, plus B is really hard to type. I am so annoyed with Janna. I don't know why she did that. I hope I can get my laptop fixed. Argh.

NaNoWriMo Starts!

It is hard to believe that this time last year I was collecting together my group of fledgling NaNoWriMoers and having weekly write ins, as Co-ML for the Ireland:Elsewhere region. It seems like another life time now. Ah well, I have an equally exciting journey ahead of me this year, what with writing and travelling at the same time. Can it be done? Wait and see. To avoid repeating myself this month, check out my WriMo blog at A November Adventure.
