Hi everybody – I just wanted to say I’m so sorry – we are so behind with visiting blog friends and catching up on your news – and haven’t had much time to log into Facebook in the last few days either…
I feel really terrible as so many of you are still coming to visit us and leave comments and I know we’ve just been terrible blog friends lately, with not returning any of your visits. I wanted to start catching up tonight but it’s nearly midnight now here in Perth so I think I’m going to have to leave it until tomorrow (again! ) – this is what’s been happening every day for the past week!!
I thought things would settle down a bit after the book was published but life just seems to have got more hectic and I’m now struggling to juggle keeping up with Honey’s blog and Facebook, and daily chores, together with the demands of book marketing & promotion…and also writing the next book. (And Paul’s mother’s arriving from the UK for a visit next week so have to prepare for that!) I’m finding it all a bit overwhelming, to tell you the truth.
Since the writing has been going well in the last couple of days, I’ve been prioritising my time towards that (you gotta grab it when it’s flowing, before you’re hit by writer’s block again!) and by the time I’ve finished for the day and sit down at the computer after dinner at 8/9pm in the evenings, I often feel too drained & exhausted to do much… so please forgive me if I haven’t responded to your message or email or comment yet or haven’t been keeping up with your news on your blog/Facebook – I’m trying to get through a few every night but some nights, I just got the energy to do anything other than lie on the sofa & watch a repeat of Fringe!
Anyway, I know I keep saying this but I really do hope to come round & catch up on your news soon. And I know we’re also very behind on some blog posts (still haven’t done the ‘Confessions of a Senior Dog Part 2′ – on Honey’s hydrotherapy adventures! It’s just that, that post has a lot of video footage to include and it takes me hours to edit & put together a good movie, which I just haven’t got the time for now…) but I AM planning to catch up on those too. (I just wish I didn’t need to sleep! I could do so much with 6 more hours in a day!! )
And don’t worry – Honey is very well and enjoying life as usual, going on her daily walks, snoozing in the sun, enjoying yummy treats…
…speaking of which, I’ll leave you with a picture of Honey & Muesli waiting for their After-Dinner Cookie!
ps. OK, that wasn’t that “quick” after all…that’s my problem: I can never write a short message!!
