Whirr, slurp, swoosh…

Inside my house, with the ex-wet floor removed:

Outside my house - or, to be more specific, outside my office window:

Three guesses what’s happening here today…

So I’m off to Cornwall. (In my head, that is. Book is also set in the summer. It’s grey and miserable, here. I’m writing sunshine. Ha.)

I’ve already been to America this morning (written my Dear Reader letter for the US release of Surrender to the Playboy Sheikh, to celebrate Harlequin’s 60th birthday – is also a milestone for me as it’s my 35th Harlequin Mills & Boon!).

And there is glass half full stuff. I had a lovely, lovely email from a reader yesterday saying that she enjoyed The Greek Doctor’s New Year Baby. (Moments like these are ones to treasure.)

And, while I remember – here’s a reminder to save the day! December 11 is Open House at eHarlequin, and covers all time zones. Over 100 authors are taking part, and there are prizes galore! I’ll post the link and reminders nearer the time.

And finally - almost forgot, sorry, because am in the UK (and I should know better because my neighbour's from the US) - happy Thanksgiving to everyone arriving here from the US. Have a great day with lots of happiness.

Counting my own blessings: this time last week, I was worried sick about DH. He's still under par, but at least it's neither of the two things we were panicking about. So, in the scheme of things, a bit of dust and disruption [this is English understatement] doesn't matter.

I do sympathise re the dust. We finished our bathroom on Sunday and I have been dusting ever since. It lurks in the air waiting to pounce.

Enjoy sunny Cornwall. :o)

My heart goes out to you, your lovely kitchen. Hopefully it won't be long before it all settles down. Hope DH keeps on improving, best wishes

Shirley - definitely lurking stuff :o) And I want that Pandora bead, so I'm back in Cornwall today *g*

Carol - mm, I was gutted. The mess quotient has been increasing weekly since the first week of August. Hopefully we're over the hump now. Thanks for the good wishes re DH.
