Keeping pawsitive!

Bloggie pals! 

Well, the not so great news is that my house buying has stalled a little. But I'm keeping positive as I've already invested emotionally and financially in this venture so I'm in it for the long haul! 

The nicer news about moi is that I am writing again! Yay! 
It's all a load of smelly pants of course but I'm enjoying the process!
First drafts are always the fun bit for me!

Charlie says: I show you my big paw!


Wishing y'all a happy June!

Writing first drafts is my absolute favourite part of the process - smelly pants and all!! Enjoy :)

Happy to hear you're writing! Sorry about the house buying process - what a pain!

William Kendall said...

Hopefully it all sorts itself out quickly.

Charlie's big paw is too cute.

Brian said...

Dang, I hope the house buying works out soon! Howdy Charlie, that is a really big paw!

Tamago said...

I 'm sorry your home buying is stalled. But it's a big purchase. I think there are always some hurdles to clear and takes time. It's great you keep positive! I hope things will turn around for the better! And it's great that you are writing and enjoying it :-) Have fun!!
Charlie, you've got big, beautiful paw! Wishing you all a wonderful June!

Mark said...

Good news and bad news means you have to focus on the good news. So well done on starting to write again.

Helena said...

Don't be discouraged about house-hunting, Kitty dear. May the best home with the best price come your way at just the right time!

And yeah, Charlie has big paws.

Patsy said...

First drafts are supposed to be a load of smelly pants! You have to edit them until they're pretty lace knickers!

fairyhedgehog said...

I'm sorry about the house buying. What a sucky, stressful thing it always is.

I'm glad you're writing again; that has to be good! Hugs to you and the kitties.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Glad you're writing again!
I'm on vacation, but it's been one of those relaxing ones where I've had a chance to write.

Simon Kewin said...

Sorry to hear that - but keep on writing! Maybe a novel about the trials and tribulations of moving houses some time?

SA Larsenッ said...

Augh ... poo to the stall on the house buying. I've been there and can totally relate to the frustration. Chin up, my friend. As my mother-in-law always say, "Better days are coming." ;)

BTW - I adore your title!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Glad you're writing. Fingers crossed on your house.

Caren Gittleman said...

I am sorry to hear about the glitch with the house buying (but it will happen when it is SUPPOSED to!)
You know what? You need to write a kitty book! xoxo

Katie Isabella said...

Oh CHARLIE! Those big paws need lots of kisses on the furry part. Mom asks your leave to come do that? xxoo

Happy June back at you. We are purring it will stop raining so we can actually go outside. ~Socks & Family

Hart Johnson said...

I adore first drafts! *giggling at your choice of smelly pants for bad* You know my sentiments about pants, so this is perfect. Hope the home buying gets back on track!

Fuzzy Tales said...

A hiss for the vendor and the delays. But it's great that you're writing again.

Maybe Charlie and Gumtree need to use their Extraordinary Cat Abilities to somehow speed the house process along. :-)

Hannah and Lucy said...

We're sorry there is a hold up with the house buying but it will at least give Charlie and Gumtree more time to find all their lost toys! Hope things start to move again soon so you don't start to just bring one thing out of a box, and then another "can't live with out that either" until you find everything is unpacked at which point everything will be given the green light and you have to fill the boxes again!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Norma Beishir said...

Sorry to hear your bad news, but it's good that you're writing again!

Love those first drafts....

Janet Johnson said...

Yay for getting back to writing! And I think I shall forever think that when I write first drafts (or second or third, for that matter) . . . it's a load of smelly pants. LOL!

Best of luck with the slow house buying process. But still exciting. :)

Nerissa said...

You're writing again? EXCELLENT!

Purrs,
Nissy

Teresa Ashby said...

Yay you're writing! And I bet it's not smelly pants!
Not so good about the house buying, but it will all come together :-) x

Marie Symeou said...

Happy June to you too!

Purrs xx

House buying is one of the biggest challenges in life. YOU could write 10 books about this experience I'm sure. Hi Charlie! Hi Gumshoe!

Sorry things have stalled on the house front but hang in there. Glad you are writing again as I should imagine it is very therapeutic. I love that gorgeous big fluffy paw.

Carol Kilgore said...

Happy June to you, Big Paw, and Gumtree. And thank you for leaving such cool comments around about my new book cover. Keep writing...the house will come when it's time.

KarenMcG said...

Well, we're sorry to learn the house stuff has slowed down a bit. But we're looking forward to hearing that it's moving again.

In the meantime, you and "Big Foot" Charlie and Gumtree can enjoy the summer.

Glad to learn you're back to writing; you do that so well.

Eileen said...

Booo...that the house buying has stalled, but hooray for the writing! I'm not creative at all so I admire those of you who are.

Lovely paw, Charlie. I hope you don't use that smack anyone or any kitty!

Rick Watson said...

As we say here Kitty, fun ain't cheap. I know the house gig will work out.
Great news about you writing again.
I wish you'd add a follow by email so it would alert me when you post.

Lady Lilith said...

Yay! I'm glad to hear you are writing again. I just started back after a long break full of editing for other people. It's a nice feeling when it's your own work.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Old Kitty - sorry about the house buying in stall mode - I sure hope it picks up .. but if creativity has returned to fill that gap - that's great news ..

Good luck and keep your pecker up and your pants in situ!!?? Cheers Hilary

Oh that is too bad that your house is on hold. That stinks. Hope it gets straight soon. Charlie we love talking you your big paw and keep that Mom writing. Take care.

Oh, we were hoping things were going well on the house hunting front. Glad you are writing again, though.

Crystal Collier said...

Yay for writing again! Boo about the house. Remember how I was behind you on listing and selling the house? Well I got a cash offer and now we have to be out in 2.5 weeks. *gulp* I'm sending positive vibes your way and hoping everything plays out in just the right way. =)

Katie Isabella said...

Charlie, I swear you could clean house with that paw!

Ellie Garratt said...

House buying is so stressful. Thinking of you, Old Kitty.

Yay for the writing!

Dawn Simon said...

It's great that you're writing again! Don't sweat the smelly pants (that expression cracked me up, by the way), and good luck with the house-buying!

Jamie Burch said...

Cheers to writing again! I hope things are starting to move along again with your house. Good luck and happy wishes! :)

Theresa Milstein said...

I hope the house buying is back on track. Hope the writing is going well too.

Madeleine Sara said...

Hope all works out for the best. Glad you are wrting again and staying positive. Mine is still on pause with too much else to worry about, so reading lots instead.
