A break from my blog break

Hello you lovelies, are you still there?

Even if I didn't want a break I've been forced to have one by prehistoric or French speaking computers. That's okay though because when I got back to my parents and their hand-cranked PC, I found Helen, Angie and A.Writer had all nominated me for a Rockin' Girl Blogging Award. Thank you lovely people. It made me all bleary eyed with emotion. I'm not sure what I should do now - but I think I put up the label, and then nominate 5 others. Can anyone tell me if this is correct?

I'm still thinking about the novel, because I had a scary dream the other day about snakes which are a metaphor in my story, and although I can handle not writing, I'm quite keen to restart. But I'm not going to...

We went back to the children's UK school to see the matinee of the show that my daughter would've been in had we not moved to Bangkok. We got there at the end of lunch time and watched the Dance Club's dance, and then we helped to put out the chairs for the audience: I felt as though I'd never been away. I loved being in school. I used to play 'Librarian' on a Friday morning for the junior school, and I co-ran a book club with the year 2 teacher, and I did an art class with Year 3. I loved being an involved parent.

Next was France. Lots of wine, cheese and bread. My mother in law is a fabulous host and I over ate, over drank and over slept.

Now I'm back at my folks, and tomorrow the excitement of the day is that I get to meet Jen at Spiral Skies. I'm so excited.

You are absolutely right about putting the Rockin' label onto your blog. It's up to you if you want to nominate another 5 people.

Glad you are enjoying the break. I've been back over a week now - can't believe that - and I'm on my final push with the novel. About 7000 words to go. xx
