Another Saturday, another day snuggled up with my book! To be fair, I did pop out at lunchtime to see an excellent production of Oscar Slater: the Trial that Shamed a City at Oran Mor ,but you are now looking at my wild Saturday night 🕺🕺🕺 . This is the reality of life for a writer - and one reason I smile sweetly and imagine nutting the folk who tell me they would love to write a book “if only they had time.” If you’re a writer, you make time. You sacrifice nights out and dates and weekends whiled away in front of crap telly. You wake up at 5am or disappear after dinner, sneak away from family events early, bring your laptop to the pool on holiday and you’d better have a very understanding partner - or no partner! . Over the years, I’ve learned to recognise the importance - and benefits - of a bit of balance, but still, when it comes down to it, writing comes first. It’s not even really for tortured creative genius reasons - it’s practicality. I don’t get to swap shifts with anyone or book annual leave - if I don’t write, the writing doesn’t get done. And if the writing doesn’t get done and there’s no new book for people to buy, I can’t pay my electricity bill. . Don’t get me wrong, I’m not being remotely poor wee me about this. This is the life I chose and I absolutely adore it. There’s nothing like the thrill and satisfaction of getting to tell my stories - even more when people enjoy them - and I definitely have, if not more free time, more flexible time than I would with a normal job. I can pop to the gym during the day, meet a friend for a cheeky coffee if they’ve got a day off or pack up my work and take it to the pub if I fancy some background company - it’s not a bad life! . But occasionally, there are Saturdays like this! It’s been a long, busy week and right now I’d like nothing better than to potter about the flat or stretch out on the sofa and veg, but there’s writing that needs to get done and it’s me that’s got to do it!

I can hardly express how grateful I am for everyone that takes the time to leave a review for me after they receive their order. That feedback is so encouraging and really helps keep me focused on my main goal: to create a little more joy in this world. Your kind words mean so much to me. THANK YOU EVERYONE! 💜

Making use of space. Whilst on a visit of 6 #offmarket Properties saw thins 8 Bed HMO being converted from an old shop and house in the #citycentre. The developer is is looking to sell rather than complete the project because his wife just wants the money now. When asked about what ideas he had for it it. The developer said about using the height available in the #stairwell to build across and turn into an ensuite rather than taking the space away from the room.. He told me the idea actually came from the council rather than an architect which is very good #imagination. Time to do some further investigation and put some figures together before deciding what offer to put an offer in. @rjgsourcingltd we always do our due diligence and make sure our calculations are correct before deciding what offer to put in and we always put and offer in on a property if it works for us or for our #investors. #wifestheboss #makinguseofspace #happywifehappylife #loveourjob #knowyourarea

A full weekend at work meant a slightly modified weekend of training. Sleeping 😴 in was not an option. Does help when you have the best job 😃 #swimbikerun #workingweekend #lovemyjob #cycling #cyclingmumsaustralia #mumswhoride #townsville #townsvilleshines #sunrise #beststarttotheday #tritraining #ironmantraining #lovemybike
