A first time!

Bloggie friends! 

2012 was such a year for me!
With some writerly joy for my story (see side bar! LOL!)
But best of all this year for me
Was having Charlie and little Gumtree!

Charlie says: I cannot ignore those laser eyes!

Gumtree says: I like my first trip outside! 

Old Kitty says: See you all  in 2013!

The Night Before!

Twas the night before Christmas
And all on the window sill
Was a Charlie all weary
With a silly billy Gumtree!

Me and the Gang wish all our bloggie pals glad tidings, holiday cheer and plenty of spirit (in our case, 40 per cent proof..)!!

Chaos Before Christmas

Bloggie friends!!

With a crash and a bang and a thud, thud, thud
I tumbles and stumbles and go judd, judd, judd
I scatter all things in my path with such glee!
I am silly and ditzy and my name is Gumtree!

Charlie says: I ignore everything.

This was a rare sunny moment last Saturday morning. Notice I don't have any Christmas decorations up yet. The Gumster is in full attack mode and everything is game but I'm hoping to have some up by this weekend! 

Have a great week everyone!

Party Time!

Bloggie friends!

I had a nice surprise pop up on my email last week. My story "London Meat" is out on an open forum for this competition and some kind soul and complete stranger  emailed me to say how much they really liked it. Awwww!  Makes all this writing malarky worth it! I won't win but it's just nice that someone liked my story enough to tell me.

Gumtree says: I play with Charlie's handsome pic!

Would you all believe it's only 14 days to Christmas!??! Yay!

Hide and sneak!

Bloggie friends!

Gum-gum wants to know where Charlie is.

Charlie says: Shhhh!

In the meantime, I (and a load of other fab peeps!!) won the "write a novel in one month" challenge (NaNoWriMo)! LOL!

Huge congrats to all and hope others join in next year too. It's totally crazy - I basically centred my story around one of the nastiest, wickedest, sneakiest most amoral characters I could dream up and had such fun with her for a month! LOL!
Now back to my regular blogging schedule time! 
Merry Christmas one and all!!
