I can honestly say that I will be glad when this week is over so I can hopefully feel better and do some writing as at the moment I appear to have dried up.
My best friend went into hospital Tuesday for an operation and I just lost the day and did absolutely nothing as all I could do was hope and pray everything went ok, by nine in the evening I heard from her daughter who had been to see her and said that she was ok, it had all gone well and she could still talk. What a relief, it was like it all flowed through my body and then I cried, everything was going to be ok. Today she will be leaving hospital to be pampered at home by everyone including me next week.
Yesterday I took my friend Sylvie who is one of the ladies who lunch out for an afternoon cream tea at the garden centre, it was just what the doctor ordered and did us both the world of good to just sit, chat and eat, the scones were wonderful. Many lovely ideas for Christmas presents in the shop and of course many plants, I loved the display of orchids.
Last night it was my last photography on-line lesson and I forgot completely all about it so hopefully I can watch a recording today, I was laying in a bubble bath at the time with not a care in the world and then I went to bed to try to catch up on some much-needed sleep.
There will be a lot going on the 18th so please if you are about call into Congo coffee shop down The Old High Street to meet the author Carol Creasey who will be signing her latest book.
I saw these shoes at the weekend, I think they are just right for a bit of Christmas sparkle it would be so wrong not to purchase I think.
The heel looks higher than what it was in this picture.
My friend Franca saw me last week and asked me to read this book to review it then attend the publishing event. Reading the blurb I did think oh dear this is going to be hard reading as not like anything I normally read at all. What a turn around, I am over half way and it is one of the best books I have read for the wording and emotional feelings it gives you; really making you feel that you are there witnessing the devastation, loss and also fight that the Italian people had after the earthquake in 2009.
Watch this space for the review and publishing date.
Hope you are all having a good week, if you are doing the NaNoWriMo how many words have you written? I will definitely spend all weekend writing with the fire on all cosy so I have no excuse. x
