I can't believe it's been over a month since my last blog, and I was going to be so good and write often. Well any other working mum out there will know how unpredictable their life can be while juggling it all.
During the month my little man hit a phase where he just wanted mummy-time all the time. He didn't want to go to daycare, he just wanted to hang out with mum. Which is great and I love that about him, and I am very well aware there will be a day when he doesn't want to do that. However, when I'm in the middle of deadlines for my day job and getting pressure to be on time for a change it's not that cute.
Especially when he is pulling the covers back over him in the morning because he isn't ready to get out of bed yet. Aaaargh! I yell to myself and quietly we have another conversation about it's time to get up and go to daycare because mummy has to go to work to earn money to buy us food. Yes, he says, I like food. Don't we all.
So with all that happening, working from home most nights to keep up with my day job and then looking for time to sleep, I just haven't made it back to the computer for my writing. But today I finally found a couple of hours and feel really good to have written a whole chapter. It certainly won't be the final version of it, but at least it's there and I know how the next chapter will play out too. We have momentum.
I have also had one of those great weekends with my little man, who is now into all things 'karate' and spiderman. Well his version of 'karate' is playing rough with mummy, and I have to say he's getting way too strong and rough for me. I'll have to enroll him in proper karate soon I think.
Another big event just passed was receiving my eBook cover art from Digital Donna. She is doing amazing work for an author friend of mine, Topsy Baxter and her new book "Interrupted Romance" and I'm very impressed with what she has done for me. Here's a peak at the cover -- let me know what you think. The first few chapters will be out by the end of the week and the book should be out by the end of June. That's the current plan anyway.
