Phew!

We made it … well of a fashion. We took 2 weeks off and we literally did not stop. We moved house. We moved office. We moved the chickens. And still we have lots to do. The first thing that came over was the spare bedroom, so that we’d at least have a bed to sleep in once the chickens and cats were over. What a nightmare that was, as the mattress is actually broken, almost in half. And it […]

Working at the weekend

I don’t often work at the weekend, or of an evening if I can help it – unless, of course, there’s a genuine emergency and only then if it’s for me or for a regular client.

In a quandary

It was all going so well … With us “breaking up” for the Easter period and me submitting the history book late Thursday night, I was all set to crack on with the new cosy mystery. And I even registered with Camp NaNoWriMo … … and then we built a new office on Wednesday. It’s great.
