Return to Planet Real Life

Thanks, folks, for your nice emails and comments.

The main reason for my silence has been a massive website-redesign job (100 pages + 244 supporting files), which has occupied all but three of my evenings (7pm - midnight) for the last five weeks.

Of those three evenings off, I spent one critting a short story for Jane (remember 'short' in Jane's world equals a full-length novel for the rest of us). Another evening I spent in the pub, having completely freaked out after a too-long day of rain and grumpy children. The third evening I spent in the company of Harrison Ford (oh, and about three-hundred cinema-goers, sadly).

I have also boarded the loft in the quest for a room of my own (photos to follow), and written a shorty.

Now, I'm knackered, and I need a lie down. Excuse me. I'll be back again soon.

Glad to see you back. I was beginning to think you'd decided to stay in Scotland or good.

Take care on Planet Real Life. It can be very tiring:-)

When you've finished lying down pop over and board up my loft. (Oh, and can you replace a roof tile whilst you're up there it's the one in the middle near the chimney stack). Welcome back TFX

Glad to se you back. Hope all well. Web designs can be a bugger. Hubby is a web designer and I hear all about the problems and clients etc. Wouldn't want to do it myself!

Blimey, no wonder you're exhausted after all that. I'm tired just reading about what you've been doing.

Leigh said...

Thank you for all your lovely comments. It's so nice to be back, and I have a warm huggy feeling of being welcome. You're a marvellous bunch, you really are!

Getting back into the swing of things now, so I hope to be posting a bit more regularly again.

L-plate: loft photos to follow soon. Promise! (Digging out my camera as we speak.)
