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!

July 2012

July is up… or so it says on my calendar – but, by the looks of the view outside one could be forgiven for thinking it was April!  Showers in abundance, hail and horrendous storms, floods in parts – positively barmy tropical weather!

June saw some interesting commissions completed with one full on week for reading Simon Toynes second book ‘THE KEY’ – a very talented author whose third book is due out Spring next year, an exceptionally well constructed book with threads to twist and turn at an Olympic pace!

The Coldplay concert a particular recent favourite – an AMAZING unforgettable evening shaped with FAB music, fireworks galore and WARM weather – YES warm weather, as I recall it was ONE hot week, alfresco writing was in abundance with a need for a NEW pair of sunglasses to see my words forming on MAC…..Ray-Bans sourced from my wonderful opticians nestling in the heart of Birmingham, Piccadilly Opticians renowned for their wide variety of new, quirky, funky and vintage international eyewear – in a word they are FAB.

Jubilee was a wash out, despite oodles of fun.. tennis is up …. clearly more rain on the horizon!

Olympic torch sped through our local town albeit VERY early Sunday morning…. I managed to raise myself from the pit for that one… a once in a lifetimes experience to see that.

Oh yes and my ‘WANT’ list just got bigger….in my dreams ‘Leica’ camera!  Maybe for my birthday later this month 🙂  ….is that a pink pig flying over head?

PROJECT – my submission deadline date is 30th July…. THIS YEAR!  Candles are out for late night writing – the race is on…..plot drawn, timelines sorted and rearing to go….

Once again thank you to all my new followers, your kind words are appreciated.  To those who I am commissioned by a hearty thank you for allowing me to serve some words up for your various assignments.

I am off to find some evening classes who teach the art of ‘ARK’ building…. may be needing one soon or else I shall be floating away!  Food for thought with my writing, may be needing a hurricane lamp, never mind candles!

Have yourselves a superb July…..FLAME ON!
