Feeling Rough

Sorry everyone, it seems when I have great intentions to get back to blogging, the weather, life, computer glitches or illness seem to scupper my efforts.

I'm relieved I am still able to knit, quietly, in front of the TV for the moment, at least.

I have planned a post on story bags ~ Ever heard of them?  ~ which I hope to write sometime soon. 

In the meantime, there's lots of posts here, flash fiction, haiku, poetry and romance as well as Author interviews, so do stay and enjoy a cuppa while you browse.

Thanks everyone for your continued support, following and lovely comments.
Keep writing... 

Oh and for a limited period, 
I currently have a Scifi haiku published at Scifiakuest


  1. Story bags? No I have not. I'm intrigued :)

  2. Hi Madeleine .. I can empathise - thankfully though not with the illness aspect - it is just plain horrid isn't it.

    May you feel better soon and perhaps for all of us Brits - let's get some sun on our backs and let that Spring and Summer clock in ...

    It is ghastly ... with cheery thoughts of a hot cup of tea and your feet up - Hilary

  3. Hi Madeleine sorry to hear you have been battling. Looking forward to finding out about story bags!

    Congrats on getting you scifi haiku published - its the best one there imho!

    I'm not sure I will be able to get back to regular blogging any time soon, but I hope to get around and read more.

    Take care

  4. Dear Madeleine,

    I'm ever so sorry that life and all its trials and tribulations have been getting in your way.

    The main thing is you relax and stay warm. I shall have a cuppa in your honour. I look forward, when you're ready, to your post on story bags.

    Keep smiling :)


  5. Hope you feel better soon Maddy.


  6. I hope you feel much better soon, Madeleine. Look after yourself. x

    You take care now, look after your health, keep warm and let's all pray for Spring to knock the socks out of Old Man Winter - no offence or disrespect meant but this weather is total pants! :-)
