Merry Christmas, Everyone!


2012 has been a great year for me - seeing Cat and The Dreamer, a book I'd worked on and loved for several years (and thought might not ever get published) brought to life was amazing. I'm hoping to be able to announce my next project sometime in the new year.

I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who's visited my blog this year and for your continued friendship. I appreciate how many of you stop by to comment. I've made some really good friends, and met a heavy metal band! (Eek and squee, Kyra Lennon!!)

This is my last post before Christmas, but I'm hoping to squeeze one more in before New Year - I seem to remember I made a few resolutions earlier on this year, so I have to come clean and share how I did.


I hop you have a warm, safe, fun, music-filled and very Merry Christmas !!

    Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas! <3

  9. Merry Christmas! It has been a good year for making new friends, like you ;-) Thanks for your faithful readership - it's much appreciated. The Engineer does the outside lights for us - they follow the roof line. He also does the lights on the tree because no one else has the patience to put 800 lights on an 8 foot tree...
    Merry Christmas to you, also. I'm not sure what my schedule will be - probably sporadic as usual...

    1. I walked home from the pub last night, and got very, VERY wet :-( Luckily my town is built on 3 hills and our river doesn't tend to flood that often. But we're due the worst of the rain, according to the forecast - batoning hatches and not doing any last minute shopping!

  21. I had to work all week, so spending the day catching up on reading and commenting in between doing my ignored house chores. Glad I stopped by to say Merry Christmas to you and your family, and Have a Happy and Safe New Year!
