White Rabbits!

……All Hallows’ Eve having just passed, Bonfire night coming up VERY soon…… Christmas on the horizons….. time to strike out the candles – dark nights are up and lots of writing to do.

October felt very short and I could have done with a few more days to add to the thirty-one I appear to have eaten my way through!  …..However as months go it was super productive, completion of magazine entries, overseas commissions, my clients blogs and web-words and a couple of quirky pieces to throw into the pot and THEN off to The Cheltenham Literature Festival for some very interesting and rewarding banter – meeting J K Rowling was probably high up there on my ‘to remember moments’ coupled with the suave and very lovely Roger Moore, both truly enthralled and inspired me – a very interesting Festival full of wonderful people, ideas and what seemed the last of the summer sunshine.

More of the same this month – work orientated, with a dash of photography to add to the pot for pure indulgence – MY time to play!  Talking of which my youngest has been at it again, photographing Lamborghini and Bentley’s to add to her repertoire AND mighty fine pics they are too x

Short and sweet for the 1st of November – I am off to create – with the added bonus of Starbucks RED CUPS arriving this Friday!  I CANNOT WAIT… YAY..x

FLAME ON!

September 2012

White Rabbits and all that jazz…………well it looks like Autumn, even sounds like Autumn…and by jingo it is AUTUMN!

Summer well and truly buried – rest and relaxation was in abundance with a couple of commissions thrown in for good measure….alfresco writing and BBQ’s galore, when not raining – wished it could continue but the cooler nights are about to hit town – unless anyone can find the big switch to throw – marked INDIAN SUMMER!

I have also been a little distracted of late….. my birthday present was eating my time and stole my heart for quite some time during August – LOVE MY NIKON – photography was one of my fathers passions, clearly in the blood, but not swapping my writing for photography just yet…. just a healthy hobby and not giving up my day job, I will leave the photography to the professionals!

September – lining up nicely…… diary is packing a punch this month, commissions from near and far, seeing the likes of my regular ‘writes’ and a heavy sprinkling of some ‘newbies’ – all makes for a colourful variety, from film buffs, web words, to a couple of ghost written articles.  Planning, researching and reading for  future events and magazines – inspired and excited I am…..HOW many days in September – I need more!  Then there are my projects… the usual late night writing to continue – with candles of course!

FLAME ON indeed!

August 2012

….jumped into August!  A slow start – holiday season and all that jazz…. July saw the Jubilee a wash with celebrations, August continues the tradition and joins in with the festivities with all things Olympian – the weather is competing with the Amazonian Forests as if an Olympic sport!   I, on the other hand have joined a night class to hone my skills to be proficient in the ancient art of ‘Arc Building’ – just in case!

End of July saw my own celebrations…my birthday was to be a very enjoyable and relaxing, full of fun, love and peace.  Thank you to those who made it FAB…x   Not forgetting the star of the show THE ‘Nikon D5100’ made me go all weak at the knees with excitement!  Not much writing went on in that week I can tell you….distracted somewhat!  I think I am going to have some fun dabbling with this new toy.

A couple of projects flew swiftly in and out of THE WORK ROOM during the latter part of July, ramping down for the Summer Holidays in the commission department, hoping for a couple of quite ‘ish’ weeks to complete some of my areas of interest and a submission.  Some lazy hazy summer days to be had – I HOPE – if the rain stops!  Proms are upon us, great music and FAB times are planned, BBQ’s and general recharging of batteries to be had and spending time with my wonderful family and friends.

Once again …. thank you to all of MY new followers and your kind words, seems I am now reaching the four corners of the world – WELCOME to my Russian followers …..

‘Добро пожаловать в мои русские последователи’ and I do hope Google translate has that right!  GULP!

Happy Summer Holidays ALL – enjoy AND hopefully FLAME ON!
