Cinders goes to the ball… in Spain

Current work: Med duo
Listening to: Sheryl Crow
Reading: too tired, last night

Fab discovery this morning – lovely email from Harlequineras saying that they’ve added me to their site. (Waves to Liliana and Marina. Thank you!) And it seems that The Cinderella Project is out in Spain this month (Construyendo un sueño). Excellent. My first Spanish translation.

In other news – life is still sticky. If anyone is waiting for something from me, please cut me a little bit of slack. I’m not usually this inefficient. For the last three and a half weeks my schedule has been school run, snatch some work time (and as soon as I get into it, have to stop - which is highly frustrating), hospital visit, school run, homework supervision, cook dinner, try and snatch work time. Before that was Christmas and school holidays, and the week before that my daughter was ill, so the last six weeks have been peculiarly frantic. I’ve had to cancel my music lessons and governor meetings and PRESMA meetings and social dates (my birthday might be a casualty of that, too) – and I am behind on my work. Time is a very, VERY precious commodity around here.

So I’m sorry, I have to prioritise things. I apologise for letting people down. I will deliver what I promised, but it won’t be until next week. I hope that’s acceptable. If it’s not... well, I’m sorry. A little understanding would go a long way, right now. Just because I’m not blogging about how difficult things are, it doesn’t mean that all is sweetness and light on Planet Kate! (And thank you to the friends who’ve allowed me to let off steam over some pretty horrible stuff this week.)

I must admit I adore my slowcooker as it buys me time when things are tight. If I'm really pushed I buy precut bags of veg - you can mike them in the bag or just tip them in the slow cooker with the meat. Gotta love jacket spuds for the same reason.
More hugs.

You should be proud of what you achieve in the busy life you lead - but you always make me feel like a slug anyway!
LOL Ray-Anne

Congrats on the Spanish translation, Kate. And the Harlequineras are a heap of fun.

And ditto what Ray-Anne said.

Just dropping by to send hugs.

Congrats on the Spanish translation too.

I've been a lousy blogger - I'm sorry, I'll try to do better.

Sorry things are so frantic for you right now. I hope they'll settle down soon.

Well said, Kate.
Now stand at the mirror (in that 15 secs a day you have spare) and practise saying it over and over.
You can eat choclate while you do it - that's just being efficient.

kate trust us, you aren't letting anyone down. Don't think for a second that you are.

We all have things that we have to take care of before we take care of other thing. So dont worry about it.

Have some chocolate, buy a new dress and some shoes, and forget your troubles
