Wow since my medication has started to work I feel like someone has removed the Kryptonite and given me back my  powers!

I'm actually striding as I walk. I can feel my strength returning and although I still have bad days when I get very tired, I do feel so much more alive.

This past week I have been busy catching up on much needed chores that have been neglected for many, many months, as well as some hobby projects that sat in my
         abandoned craft room for longer than I care to remember. I have enjoyed some great

         weather and thought I'd be drawn to the computer, but I actually kept very busy away from

Thanks to all my lovely followers for your well wishes and for being patient while I was taking my blog break.

Hello to my new followers.

I have lined up a blog interview with successful fiction author, the lovely Sandi Kahn Shelton, starting tomorrow and I shall be presenting her writing journey in 3 short posts,
         which will include:

        * A peek at Sandi's favourite writing space.
        * Some insights into Sandi's novel building.
       *  Sandi's writing journey.

While you are reading her interview you might like to think up some questions you'd like to ask a successfully published author, because you'll have a chance to pose your questions on Friday through the weekend (the answers for which I'm hoping to post up with next month's interviewee).

Oh and as I am almost on 400 followers, I'll be having an 'UP for Grabs' Blog Giveaway, SOON with 2 prizes (once I reach that target). So keep your eyes peeled for the prize post


BTW Since I've been back (yesterday) I've had computer gliches!

    I do feel much better and am seeing a consultant tomorrow which I am loking forward to as well as feeling anxious about.
    I do wake up at 5:30am which make me rather tired later in the day and I noticed that although before I loved to listen to the radio all the time, while I was ill I found it annoying. :O)
