So, i have decided to take the plunge and use this years NaNoWriMo as a good reason to try and get a huge chunk of the novel i am trying to write written. I have had more ideas about it that will change the story line a little so it needs re-writing from the beginning. But i have Characters and plot outlined so fingers crossed!
I am hoping that by taking part in this challenge it will give the bunnies and muses a much needed boost and things will flow with more ease again.
Wish me luck!
The Bride looked beautiful in her gorgeous blue dress and the Groom handsome in his suite. The Bridemaids did a brilliant job, as did the best man :)
The ceremony at the registry office went without a hitch, as did the reception, it was a wonderful day and i am truly knackered ... photo's will follow when i get my hands on them :)
First i want to the apologise for the lack of fic this past week but with my daughters wedding getting rapidly closer and closer time seems to be eaten up while I'm not looking!!! I'm hoping to post a chapter of both of my WIP's this weekend.
Ickle gets married a week tomorrow, i cannot believe just how fast this has come around ... time seems to have flown by since Christmas! So far she doesn't seem to have any wedding day jitters but she is stressing a little over how her hair is going to be on the day! But everything is sorted out for the big day, we just have to take a few things down to the reception hotel on the morning of the wedding.
And Finally, A Happy Easter / Holiday Weekend to all, i hope you have a good one.
He seems to have settled in well, he is a very quiet dog, you'd hardly know he was here half the time! He gets very excited when anyone comes home and in the mornings when we get up. He loves to be cuddled and is still a little insecure. He has to be locked in his bedroom - the sunlounge - at night as he likes to steal things he shouldn't have and he's a little unpredictable with other dogs so we have to muzzle him to let him off the lead. His good points well and truely outweigh the two minor bad ones.
He was a little nervous when we got him from the kennels but he seems to be settling in well. He has obviously had some training as he sits and gives his paw on command, asks to go out into the garden and doesn't try and get on the sofa.
He is a little underweight but we will soon sort that out by giving him regular meals and he will also need a solid rubber ball as he has destroyed the tennis ball already! He seems very placid and is already coming out of his shell a little.
He is two years old, has been neutered, wormed and de-flea'd.
Obviously he won't take the place of Sheba in our hearts but make one of his own.
We are off to a pantomine tonight so my parents are coming half an hour before we leave so he can get to know them and then they are going to dog sit, including taking him for a walk.
They wouldn't take payment yet, he is on a two week trial with us, but i can't see there is any way we won't be keeping him, he's lovely.
Oh and the pic was the only one of a dozen that wasn't made fuzzy by him moving as he took the photo.
I still keep expecting to see Sheba but that's only to be expected for a while ... at least i can talk about her now without bursting into tears ... although the odd one does still escape now and then.
For the last year Sheba has had problems with her back legs, in the past few days she got worse and worse until she could barely stand and walk and when she did manage it she would either only walk a few steps before dropping to the ground to lay down again or fall over. She also had a huge mass in her stomach we discovered recently which the vet said was probably why she went down hill so fast but we had caught the cancer before he caused her any great pain and suffering.
What made it worse was that when she was laying down she was her old, happy, playful self,but it would have been selfish and cruel of us to allow her to suffer any more.
She had a fantastic last Christmas, ripping open her many presents and trying to eat everything edible before we could wrestle it away from her, we always got her so many presents because it made her so happy.
The house already feels so empty.
R.I.P Sheba, we will miss you so much and we love you so much xxxx
We are having a visit from someone from one of the rescue centres on Monday, we want to give another abandoned or abused dog - she was also a rescue dog, who had been abused - a good home and life.
