I've been sitting and watching the YA authors record them facing their fears - check out Scott Westerfeld and others here doing crazy and scary things!
I'm just back from my sister's bday bbq bash. I got loooooooots of Tilly time!! She is sooooooo sweet and small and cuddly! And I think I might start making a list of cool things about being an auntie:
1. YOU get to be the one to cuddle the puppy when she is stressed cause lots of people are being loud and stuff.
2. YOU get to kinda feel sorry for puppy when she gets in trouble for peeing on the floor and you don't have to shout or be angry and then you can get more cuddles.
I gave good bday presents - that's always a good feeling. I had good chats with a few people. Especially a sister of one of my old school friends who's been through a bit of similar stuff to me in recent years and she has just gotten remarried and is really happy. And it was lovely to chat to her. And I got an awesome banana bread recipe from my sister's sister-in-law which I shall try later this afternoon.
Now ... I am trying to get some work done.
Haven't done any yet...
