This last week we've had a taste of winter. Rain, rain and more rain and a bitter wind, which sent me digging out winter woollies and remembering I need to get my coat to the dry cleaners. The leaves on our silver birch trees have turned gold and my flower garden has turned up its toes. It has been great weather however for reading, watching movies and writing. I've also found a replacement car: later today I will be the proud owner of a dark green Rav4!

I've been chipping away at another chapter of my Catlin's novel and discovered Amelia is really quite fiery and speaks her mind when necessary. As for Theodore, both Amelia and myself are having a love/hate relationship with him. What sort of person is he really? Handsome - yes, polite - sometimes, genuine - hmmm, not sure!

The next chapters will see her settling into her new home. But is everything as it would seem, or are there dark secrets prowling in the undergrowth of the Catlin's forest?


  1. Oooh, enjoy your new baby! And thanks for sharing more of your story. :D

  2. OOOOH you are a tease! Can't wait to read the next bit. And congrats on the new car!

  3. Joanne and Ruth - thanks ladies. I've been zipping around in my new wee car all evening.

  4. Cool forest! Sounds like a wonderful book in the making.

    Congrats on your new Rav4!
