Today I have the pdf, mobi and epub final versions of 'Serpentine' to check. I may be some time. Luckily I have chocolates to sustain me, thanks to an early mother's day gift.

Yes, chocolates are very good sustenance! My husband just got back from a business trip to Switzerland, and he brought me a box of kirsch-filled chocolate sticks.

A crack has appeared in the front stem of the bicycle I gave my son two years ago. I'd cycled with it to Nottingham. So until it is fixed or replaced I have offered to loan him my spare Dawes road bike. Yep, another 100 miles bike ride across the Pennine hills tomorrow. I probably won't ride all the way in one day - I could but I'd be too knackered. So I'll stop overnight at Ilam Hall Youth Hostel. It's a grand old hall in the Peak District Dove Dale - beautiful scenery. I'll be returning by train and normally don't mind that but I have to change 3 times so not so much fun returning.

Lovely place to stay! I've stopped in Ilam often and thought about staying at the hostel. Perfect setting.

I'm exhausted. Today was the three-year-old's birthday, and tomorrow's the baby's first birthday. I think I just might have to start drinking energy drinks again just to get through the day.  hiding On the plus side, the kiddos are cute and healthy and enjoying themselves. I have so much appreciation for my own mother right now.

It's hard work when they're that age. I remember it well, though my wife took the brunt of the strain. Good times, though. That's what life's all about, isn't it? afro

True! They're all worth it, though. I try to remind myself how quick the time goes, so I can enjoy the moments even when they're tiring.

Sorry I've been gone.  My finger is broken and it was/is a pain to type but it is healing.  My father passed away Monday night and this whole week I've just felt lost.  Hard to explain but I'm sure others know what I mean.

Sorry to hear about your dad. There's no broadside quite as bad as losing a close family member. It's a huge shock.
