Climbing back up.

Monday, September 15, 2014

Last week I could feel myself sliding, this weekend I crashed. And only the week before we were saying how the pregnancy seemed to have helped leveled me out a bit, I should have known that would tempt fate. It was a culmination of things and nothing in particular. Possibly trying to do too much and being frustrated when my ballooning body objects. The writing was going well and then I received an email from the person whos editing through my 5th draft with only negatives. Im trying to focus on Russel Lyness quote, no author dislikes to be edited as much as he dislikes not be published. I know the books are like the weight loss, it's so much saying I'm going to keep at it, if i want to succeeded I have to keep at it. Anyway, I am trying to climb back out. I will climb back out.

    It is all a process of learning and doing, then redoing till it feels right. We will get there, have courage, and stay strong! emoticon

More than a brand new day

Sunday, August 24, 2014

Today is the first day, ever, since the beginning of our relationship,that I have not gone to work with my husband. It is the first time since I started a holiday job aged 13 in the worlds most beautiful sweetshop, (and we wonder why I have food problems!) that I have no idea when I will next get a pay check. I have to say its terrifying. I have cooked, I have cleaned, and I have worked on my novel and it is 11:11! When I said to my husband that I was worried Id just spend the whole time doing absolutely pointless things that I love, like playing the piano and baking he said that was the whole point.
I know that I am hugely lucky and am not going to squander this opportunity. I suspect I will be doing a lot more blogging in the few months before the little one is due. After that chaos is sure to reign again!
Have a wonderful week everyone.

Not a fan of jet lag!

Monday, August 18, 2014

After 3 weeks in the UK visiting are back in Asia. And I hate jet lag. Last night I didnt get to sleep until 6am and had stupidly booked a morning appointment at the doctors before we went thinking that it help us recover sooner if we had to get up for something. You'd have think wed have learnt by now.
All seemed good at the scan, and the bump is definitely getting bigger. Although despite the fact she kicks constantly at night she refused to move for the doctor. I have no idea where the stubborn streak could come from.
In other news it is only two weeks until the realisation of not working should well and truly sink in! When I was in England I met up with a wonderful woman who I had met on an online course and had offered to proof read copy edit my book for me. Fingers crossed she thinks its okay.
I hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday.

Little things I love

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Long baths with a good book.
Keeping the hot tap running while I soak in the tub.
Clouds that look like animals then morph into a completely different one.
Curling up under a thick duvet when it's cold outside, even if it's aircon.
Fresh air, (not smog!)
Home grown vegetables that taste of the outside
Time to paint and draw and write. Seeing improvement
Singing loudly.
Singing loudly and dancing.
Dancing at the end of a film when the credits roll.

Happy Wednesday

Made me smile.

Monday, July 14, 2014

In my father in law's garden in a rose bush. Despite its repeated failure to produce any roses for nearly a decade his reluctance to uproot it is understandable given that it was planted by his late mother. My husband I had decided long before I fell pregnant that if we were ever to have a girl we would name her after his grandmother, (the rose bush planter). This year the bush has bloomed for the first time in years. Guess what we are having?! Life really does like to make you smile some days.
