Progress, Authors, Presents, Parents & Kitties Needing Help

So what do I have to tell you this week, my dears? Well, nothing much really. It’s pretty much been work, work, work, cleaning, work, work, work here. But oh well. We can’t have everything we want, now, can we?

On the plus side, I got a bit of Baying For Blood done. This means we’re up to the 33, 107 words mark. So woohoo! That’s about halfway or so, I’d say. We’re definitely into the middle bit anyway.

I don’t think it looks too bad for a first attempt. We’ll get some lights for it soon enough too.

Bear also wants lights for the window.

Listening To The Spin Cycle

Today is my first proper day off in a while where I haven’t ended up having to do anything in particular or go out and see either of our families. All I have to do is concentrate on writing, my blog and tidying up.

I’m also going to attempt to read some more of Broken if I have time.

As you can see, Barley is getting bigger too. We managed to get on top of his flea problem, which is a relief, and he seems much happier for it.
