Exciting stuff ahead!

Current work: dirty draft of new Cherish (aka M&B #55)
Listening to: Beethoven
Reading: next on TBR

Gym this morning was great (though I think my arms are going to hurt tomorrow) and I was pleased that I did some pull-ups on the scary machine (scary because it’s really hard to get off it!). Came home, eagerly expecting my Kindle to arrive (Amazon emailed me yesterday) and quite disappointed not to have it, but that’s probably a good thing. Some of my Christmas shopping arrived, however, so that’s good. And son has decided what he wants (so we have to go shopping for it – he wants a long black coat, so that means he has to try it on to make sure it fits). There is apparently an excellent patisserie that’s just opened in the city (according to two of my personal trainers) so we might just have to have breakfast there tomorrow. (And hey, I worked out so hard this week, I have EARNED a piece of cake!)

There’s something really exciting happening next week, but I can’t spill all the beans until Monday. What I can say is that it involves a new book out by me, with three other authors I like very much as people and as writers, and the cover is definitely hot (can’t wait to share that one!). Watch this space... and FB, and Twitter (I am so going to get to grips with social media this year).

cake after a workout contains NO sugar, NO fats and extremely good for weight loss. I'm positive I read it somewhere. It may have been about the same time I discovered that chocolate is VERY good for health on days that end in 'Y'. Especially the newest white chocolate sold here that contains freeze-dried raspberry bits. With a donation for every block to Breast cancer it is definitely guilt-free.
Good to have you back on your blog. missed you!

I'm doing a lot of Christmas shopping tomorrow. I'm armed with a list, so that's a start.

I like EXCITING when it's good news.

Mia - fantastic research. Agree absolutely (especially on that white choc with freeze-dried raspberries - daughter is v partial to it, too). And thank you.

Mary - hope your shopping went well. (Mine involved being dragged through a Goth shop and we'll have to order son's coat.) And yes, it is good news, but I'm rubbish on time differences so it *might* be Tuesday UK time. (I get Aussie time difference. US just throws me!)
