Marketing and interviews

Crazy times - I have been interviewed four times this week, and have been asked some expected, cool and crazy questions, you will have to keep your eyes peeled (or click the  follow link) to be among the first to read the interviews when they are released.

One year ago I was working hard on my final drafts with my editor, wondering if this was really happening, was I actually going to publish a book? and then the day came when the proofs arrived, and it was impossible not to show a copy to everyone, and say 'It's me!'.  My friends have been the loving supportive crew they have always been, and the reaching out to speak about the book, and the process has brought me into the paths of even more interesting and inspirational women.

My life is not, and never has been perfect, but you know what? I fulfilled by bloody dream! and it feels amazing.  The fact that you are reading this, the words from my brain fills me with unadulterated joy, and I want you to feel it too.

What is your dream? and what would you need to achieve it?

Puppies and hotels

Anyone who follows my Facebook page will have noticed that I gave the (probably unnecessary) advice last week, not to take a 17 week old puppy to a hotel – even a dog friendly hotel. Because that is exactly what I did over Easter. It wasn’t entirely through choice you understand; we had a voucher for Christmas that we hadn’t been able to use before pup arrived. Please rest assured that I did tell the hotel when we booked how old pup would be when we came to stay, so they knew what they were letting themselves in for.

When we arrived there was a lovely patio in the sunshine for a leisurely lunch, and no-one looked disapprovingly at the creatures, so that was a good start; even when Mabel started barking at a random tree (in her defence it did look a bit shady…boom boom).
It was later when we got into our room that things became a little more stressful. Despite being outside for two hours, the first thing on our little Prince’s agenda was a massive wee. Which took nearly a whole toilet roll to mop up, who puts carpet in a dog friendly room? We had to have the windows open the rest of the time to try and lessen the smell of boy urine.

Needing to bring in our bags and the doggy crate from the car we left them in the massive bathroom, only to find out on a return no more than seven minutes later; that our Princess had done more poop than she had in the last three weeks up together. And that they had both danced it around the room.

They went into the crate whilst I got to work with the cleaning products.

The rest of the weekend was much easier, with only a fall into a swamp, and a nose bleed on the white duvet cover to contend with…. How was your Easter?
