Happy Christmas to all of you - this is the last diary entry for 2017. I was convinced I'd put up my entry in November but it seems not.
So to quickly review October. Sorry - can't remmber what I did , where I went or anything else. Which just shows how boring my life is.
On to last month.
I wrote an extra novella - Christmas at Devil's Gate -which makes a total of seven for the year. Over half a million words -and all edited/proofed and promoted. An ATA Girl, will be out in March, A Soldier's Bride, in April, A Lord in Disguise, will be out in February in the spring Regency Romantics box set. All the rest have been published this year.
Sadly our beloved Bengal had to be put down two weeks ago as his kidneys failed. Although we had only had him for 5 years he was a part of the family and will be missed for months to come. Not sure if I'm going to get another one.
My daughter and son-in-law depart for San Diego on 31st January - adult grandson is already established at University of California, Santa Cruz campus, and grandaughter will be starting her new job in New York in January. Her partner is a New Yorker.
Dreading this as I won't be able to visit - can't leave my husband for more than a couple of nights. Must get used to using Skype.
My decoratoins are all up -both inside and out - and when I zoomed to chemist after husband ahd gone to bed last night - I counted three houses with modest dispalys of lights in lower part of town. Then I was blinded by a massive display - two houses long, at top end and it made me smile. Glad I'm not the only one who goes a bit mad.
I've finished present buying -just have to wrap everything up. Also got food order in - so all tickety-boo. Not sending many cards this year - postage is ridiculous now. I shall send e-cards to those I can't see personally.
I bought a waffle iron and have just made the second batch, (16 waffles) and will freze them individually. I use gluten free flour so I can eat them too. Also bought a litre jug of Candian maple syrup - can never have too much of a good thing.
Next week is the Christmas party for the Chelmsford chapter of the RNA - looking forward to catching up with friends and fellow writers that I only see at this annual event.
Not enjoying the crickeet - was a waste of money buying BT sport just for the Ashes. We are goign to be whitewashed again. Intending to cancel my subscription.

Until next year
