...I wrote my last blog on here. About 9 months ago. I'm not even going to try and excuse it. And I'm not going to promise to update more regularly either. Never happens.
Anyways. I thought I'd do a little catch up for myself more than anything, but if you do read, then thank you :)
I Moved House! I finally moved from my one bedroomed cupboard into a lovely two bed flat in the (semi) countryside. It's lovely. The picture is of the outside of the house around Christmas time when everyone was going nuts about the snow. The new place is next door but two to a bookshop, opposite the library and surrounded by lots of lovely little cafes and boutiques and art galleries. Oh and the kitchen is huge and has beams and massive stone windows ( *re-arranges face into one that is less smug*). Not sure quite how I got to live here, but I feel very lucky that I do.
Novelicious is going really well since the relaunch and it's all very exciting. We are enjoying our highest traffic ever and have lots of plans and schemes for the future.It's tougher than I anticipated, running a book blog. Though this is probably more to do with annoying and unprofessional people in the blogosphere (ranty post coming soon, I suspect), rather than the actual production of the site, which is lots of fun. We have a great team at the moment; Debs, Laura and Emily are smart, lovely women who love to read just as much as I do, inject bags of personality into their writing and reviews, and really believe in the site. It's also super fab that we get so many free books (and also exhausting) :)
My little sister is getting married in August and I'm going to be a bridesmaid - maid of honour, no less (along with our older sister). She's managed to organise the whole thing in about four months, which while super impressive, leaves me a little less time to get skinny before the big day (the dresses are 'Champagne coloured', very beautiful and very unforgiving on ladies with mahoosive arses.) Nevertheless, I cannot wait for the big day and a currently trying to plan the best Hen Night EVER, which is fun.
Celebrated Nine Years with Edd, It was our anniversary in March. Nine years is yonks. We met when he was still at school (okay sixth form, but he had to wear a uniform) and I was in my first year at University. I think we're more in love now than ever before. I wonder if we'll make plans to tie the not soon, too??!
The pic is of a painting Edd is working on (of his dad). I love it. He's talented, no?
I'm writing like a fiend. Some potentially very exciting emails have been exchanged, which means that I am working like hell to finish my book. It's tough but exhilarating. There's nothing better than writing fiction. It really is the best buzz.
I turn 28 very soon and rather than fret about getting older (a la last year) I feel quite calm about this birthday (April 17th, just incase you were wondering!). I've got a feeling that this year is going to be a good un' for me.Anyways, that's about all I can be arsed writing for now. No doubt I shall be back very soon with loads of stuff that I forgot to mention. xxx
