Hey peeps, how’s things? This last week at the Myles household has been bogged down by a head cold doing the rounds. Luckily no one got too ill with it, but I’ve just been feeling a bit sluggish and Gabriel hasn’t been napping so well with all the snot. And just when he’d got over the teething *sigh*
Anyway, despite the cotton-wool brain I’ve managed to write a little bit more on the new story, so that’s something. I’ve also had the excitement of going to view a property Andy and I are thinking of buying. I know, I don’t really want to move again so soon, but it would be great to be in a place of our own rather than renting. It’s difficult to child-proof a rented place properly without putting up high shelves and drilling into the walls for stairgates, etc. Plus I want my own pictures up on the walls. We always knew this place, beautiful though the view from the back is, would only be temporary.
We’re going back to have a second look at the place on Saturday, so wish us luck! It’s a bungalow on a good size plot, with plenty of potential for extending. Also, it’s quiet, not overlooked and close to town. And really light and airy inside. Fingers crossed.
Apart from that I’ve been cooking up a storm (my recipe for Chicken, Bacon and Leek pasties coming soon!) cleaning the house, doing admin, looking after the kids and watching telly. Have started Game of Thrones and Peaky Blinders, both of which are excellent so far. I know, it’s taken me a long time to get on the GoT thing, but I had to get over my fantasy aversion. Luckily it doesn’t have any of the pomposity of the High Fantasy stuff that put me off the genre.
Oh, and I’m reading again too. Beta read an excellent story by JL Merrow, which will be out next year (Lover’s Leap), and have just started the Charmed and Dangerous anthology. It’s great to be reading again after such a long break!
As for this next week, I’m pleased to welcome Edmond Manning back to the blog, who’ll be talking about his new release, King John. If you haven’t yet encountered the Lost and Founds series, then I order you to go and check them out! It starts with King Perry, and they’re all utterly compelling reads. Gay fiction rather than romance, I’d say, although they’re all love stories too in their own, unique way.
Edmond will be blogging on Monday, so do stop by to say hello. He’s lovely
That’s all for now, folks. How are things in your neck of the woods?
Love and hugs,
