Cataromance Reviewers’ Choice Award Winner

Current work: gelati revisions, round 2 (but these are smaller than last time round so I am not getting stressed about it; the days of a book going through with no revisions are long, long in the past, and it's the same for everyone, so it's a matter of going with the flow and chilling out)
Listening to: Coldplay, X&Y
Reading: next on TBR

Absolutely thrilled to discover yesterday that Good Girl or Gold Digger? won a Cataromance Reviewers’ Choice Award 2010. (Thank you very much to the judges.)
Do go over to Cataromance to see the rest of the winners. And they even sent me a pretty graphic I can use for my blog (thank you, Donna Z).

Other things currently happening on Planet Kate:

  • son still off sick and feeling rough (possibly infection as well as D&V bug, but doc says give it until Friday and do lots and lots of fluids in between) - bless him, he's being an utter lamb
  • day 2 of Shred, and the backs of my upper arms are protesting a bit - but I can do this
  • revisions are in for the gelati book. Am teasing my ed, who has suggested I put more work stuff back in the gelati book. (She normally makes me take it out. I should add, this is affectionate teasing, and she’s teasing me back. I’m feeling a lot better about work than I was back in September.)

Righty. Coffee, work, school run and then to John Lewis to pick up my grill. (JL are just the best when it comes to customer service. Rang them yesterday, and they've put it by for me until tomorrow.) Daughter has put in a bid to pre-order the Pokemon game that comes out, the week after next (she's saved birthday and Christmas vouchers for it, bless her). Can we stay out of our 'banned' shops?

Shred? Is this some sort of weird guitar thing? Or a new workout craze, like Zumba? Am puzzled!

Kate Hardy said...

It's a workout :o) Jillian Michaels. (She's lovely - lots of heart, and you feel she's on your side and not one of these "look at me, I'm so beautiful" gym bunnies.)

Basically it's circuit training - 3 mins strength (weights), 2 mins cardio, 1 min abs. Intense, doable, and it's only 20 mins so I can fit it in. Also good for clearing the head ready to work :o)

PS - loved the idea about it being a weird guitar thing (especially as Tuesday is usually lesson day - isn't this week as had to take son to dr's).

Nicolette said...

Ah, okay. Thanks for clearing that up!

Congrats on the award! Hope son feels better soon and good luck the shred.

Never heard of shred? Is it a UK thing?

And congrats again on Cata award :)
