House Cleaning

I've spent the last week, cleaning & sorting. I've sorted my clothes, throw out heaps, still have a heap left. By rights I shouldn't need to buy any clothes for at least five years. At least I can fit all my clothes in one wardrobe now. I also had a clean up around the house, tossed a mile of Tupperware and other household items I haven't use in years. It feels good not to have all that stuff cluttering up my cupboards.

You may also notice that I've changed my header again. Yes, I even had a overhaul of my blogs and website. I've gone with something different this time. If you get the chance have a look at my website and let me know what you think. I still have to add more links yet, but I'll work on that during the week. My Heroine Diaries layout was changed a few weeks back and I still have to work on something new for the 'Let's Talk Heroes' yet. That will happen in the next week or so.

My grandson is coming to have the day with me again tomorrow. I'm in for a long day as his Tiger's beat my Knights today in the NRL. I'll never live this down. LOL.

Hope you are all getting lots of writing done.

ANZAC Day 2009

ANZAC Day is the anniversary of Australian and New Zealand troops landing on the shores of Gallipoli in 1915. A day to show respect and to offer thanks to the brave men and women who risked their lives to keep our shores safe.

It is also a day to thank those soldiers that continue in the footsteps of our forefathers. To offer our sympathy to those who have lost loved ones in recent times. It is a day that when you hear the sound of the last post, that your heart beats a little faster, tears well in your eyes and your thoughts go to those serving overseas in wars or peacekeeping operations.

We bow our heads for a minutes silence.

'They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun, and in the morning. We will remember them. Lest we forget.'

Monday Mayhem ~ Changes

The contracts for the sale of my Mum & Dad's home have been exchanged. While I am very happy that my Niece and her partner are buying the family home, I'm sad at the same time as it is now no longer a home I can walk into without first knocking. They have big changes in store for the old home and will only add to the value of the house, but it will seem different going down there now. I've said my final goodbye to that chapter of my life, now a whole new story is about to be written for the old house. A house that will once again build the dreams of a young couple starting out.

New Office
Another change in my life, is the fact that I now have an even larger office. I have all my books and novels around me, plenty of room to move about and space to walk and read over my manuscripts.

Old office

A view to inspire.

This is what I get to look at each day as I sit down to write, not bad is it?

I've also had a change on the Diaries of an Heroine blog. While I may not have been blogging here I have been working. Edits of 'If I Were a Rich Man', 'We Were in Love' and 'Baby Can I hold you' are still moving forward. Plus the screenplay I'm working on for Script Frenzy, while not moving in leaps and bounds, is progressing.

You can also find me on twitter most days, I post a few times a day, and trying hard to limit the amount of time I spend on there.

That's it for this update. I'm heading off to bed, in the hope that I'll get a bit more sleep tonight than I did last night.

Until next time. Happy Writing.
