Mitzi and the book I'm writing

1 day, 11 hours, 14 minutes is when we'll be re-homing Mitzi and I can't wait! She's 3 years old and I've already fallen in love with her even though I've only seen her twice and spent 3 hours with her! I'm going to put her in the children's book I'm writing - Dogs Trust have very kindly given me permission to use them in the book and Mitzi is going to be the dog that Toni wants to rehome!

Keep an eye on my domain for updates on my Mitzi!

1 day, 11 hours and 8 minutes to go now!

Word counts - such a relief!

My book has just been saved and I've just let out a relieved sigh as I'd read that new authors aiming at 9-11 year old readers should have a 10,000 to 15,000 word count but I've just been told that I can double to triple that word count which is great news for me and the book! Yaaaaaay!

Just had to share a bit of good news with you all!

I love my husband so much!

Everyone should have a Steven (you can't have mine, he's taken! hahaha) he promises things will happen and they do... he's wonderful!

He got back from seeing the District Nurse this morning and his legs are infected again but he said that if his legs have improved enough to drive for an hour each way then we'll go and see the dogs at the Dogs Trust in Evesham at the end of the week!

I've been talking/nagging Steven about it for literally months and he hasn't said a definite no or a definite yes the whole time... he's just been saying "maybe" which hasn't dashed my hopes but hasn't given me a false positive either! Even better he hasn't been too (outwardly obvious) peed off with my almost constant requests about it either!

I'm just so lucky that we found each other all those years ago!

Laughter is infectious!

I've just read a message from Dianna about a cute piggy that she bought recently and telling us all about how her mum had seen it and started laughing which made Dianna laugh which, you guessed it, got me laughing too... I just need to find a way to get the readers of my book laughing now too!! lol

I'm a writer suffering from writer's block!!

OK, so this is my final label! I've been struggling with writers block for almost a fortnight now and it's starting to get on my nerves!! *ahem* aaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh!!!

I'm a chocaholic vegetarian

This is my second label... I just looooove UK chocolate!! I've been a vegetarian since I was about 11 years old (I'm 32 now) and food suitable for vegetarians has dramatically improved in the last 21 years!

It may sound silly but my life seems empty until I've had my daily "fix" of chocolate! 1 fix is 2 bowls of Coco Pops then 3 bars of chocolate for lunch then another big bar of chocolate before I hit the hay at night! Yep, totally serious!

I am a pain in the butt

This months prompt has pretty much got me running for the hills!! lol It is to come up with 3 labels for yourself and write so that the followers can get to know that bit of you too. Thing is though, I do my best not to label myself or others as I feel that can be prejudiced or something!

So there you go! Sorry!
