Don't even ask. I'm writing again and no I won't put a word worm up because I'm flitting around like a hussy never lingering with one project for long enough to be considered a writer of any fidelity at all!!

But I just had to post another pic of Adrian Pasdar. Because he's my TYCOON hero right now and man is he GOOOOOOOOOOD! Loving it. jx

I'm having a trauma. I will say only four words -


Will it ever end? My pillow has more hair than I have.

Limahl - Never Ending Story

Whilst waltzing with the baby today (yep apparently it's good for her to waltz) I was reminded of how much I love this tune and how I miss the special friend (you know who you are LOB) who loved it as much as me....


Yo Yo Baby

Babies are strange...

Two weeks ago I was 'a frettin' cos Esme only put on 12 ounces in a whole month (picture me consulting centile charts and checking Dr Google like a mad woman!!) Then yesterday at the clinic she goes and puts on a whole 13 and a half in just two weeks. How so??

Is she a tiny trickster in disguise, secretly giggling at 'weight worry wart mother'??

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Naughty.

Kwikie Christening Pics

Thanks for the Christening wishes - and due to popular demand (lol) here's a couple of pics. Sadly (much as I'd love to post her pic) I can't put in the ones of my biggest daughter in her beautiful Monsoon muslin dress. There's legal/anonymity reasons (if you've read Taking The Leap you'll catch my drift). But suffice to say - she looked lovely and she did very well being baptised as a big girl so we were really proud! Here's pics of Grandma and Esme and mad parents and baby in robe!

P.S. We're still eating the cake. It's rather good with a nice cuppa Rosy Lea.

P.P.S. Check out Pure Passion Awards - and vote for writing pal of mine Phillipa Ashley! Her book deserves loadsa votes! Go Pip.

Special Day

Today both my girls were baptised. We feel blessed and very grateful.

Esme is in her cot early tonight after a very exciting day (while big daughter is still going strong!) And bed. With a thankful heart.

My short story - A Night To Remember - can be found in this month's CANDIS magazine.

It's about the trials and tribulations of a fancy dress hen night.

Plus there's Lorraine Kelly (nice lady) and a free craft book for readers. What are you waiting for? Go subscribe and get yours (and they're a charitable magazine too!)

Tried to resist posting these... Titled: the highs...

...and the lows of babycare.

(She's a poppet really - I don't even mind the crying! And I'm loving the 'goooooooo/gurgle' conversations that go on and on and on....)

Just to confuse the issue...

OMG. I've just gone and written a first chapter of a new project (well one that lurked half done on computer but still). 2000 words.

I need a new worm now. Just to confuse things.

Yesterday, between feeds and the various Mummy duties that constitute my life, I happened to switch on Good Morning whilst hoovering (it's a heady whirl this world of mine!)

Anyway - cut to interesting bit - ages ago I was addicted to a prog on Hallmark called Judging Amy which I particulary 'dug'. Reasons: the judge Amy was kinda cool, with great ethics and it was nice to see her struggling with romantic and 'mummy' problems just like your regular Joe or Josephine! In addition - the love interest man candy was JUST DIVINE but alas - I could never manage to find out his name or get any pics to blog about.

Jude cuts back to Good Morning on TV: there sat my dreamboat lawyer guy from Judging Amy on the sofa chatting to Eamon Holmes. His name is Adrian Pasdar and he's married to a Dixie Chick (ain't they always!) And he's still scrummy as he ever was.

Enjoy...oh and feel free to score him out of ten if you're so inclined! Personally - he's my nine and a half.
