The year of low caffeine and good standing

The year of low caffeine and good standing

Just like a proper old person, I can’t believe how time is flying. I feel like I’m only just getting to know 2015 and it’s nearly a quarter over already. This year I did do a clever thing though and got my post-festive detox over and done with early in the year instead of putting it off until it was a whole new festive season. On February 1 I decamped to Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat in Queensland, Australia, for a five-day detox. No coffee, no alcohol, no wheat, no sugar, no freaking way, ri...

Very Big Cloud, Very Small Silver Lining

It’s impossible to be chirpy blog-wise this week as the destruction becomes more apparent in Christchurch, the city at the other end of New Zealand from mine, which was devastated by an earthquake earlier this week. For those of you outside New Zealand, Auckland, where I am, is about the same distance from Christchurch as Seattle, WA, would be from San Francisco, CA. But we’re just a little thin country with only a handful of big cities and we’re all feeling the pain as the body count rises...

SAINTS BE PRAISED - IT’S A BRAND NEW BLOG!

SAINTS BE PRAISED - IT’S A BRAND NEW BLOG!

Hello and welcome to my shiny new website. Back in the day, I was actually relatively quick – for a late adapter - to have a website, as my first (and only other) one was hosted by the American Author’s Guild which has a series of templates any ninny can select and then hey presto! You’re on-line. It was pretty basic - sort of website-by-numbers - but quite suited to someone who would still be working on an old Olympic typewriter if she could find one. However, despite its simplicity, I co...

Roll Out Those Crazy Hazy Days of Somewhat

Roll Out Those Crazy Hazy Days of Somewhat

Reading is a joy but sometimes writing feels like your innards have been scooped out like a Halloween pumpkin and you’re still scouring the insides for enough to make a decent soup. Yesterday I was reading through the last couple of chapters of the second draft of my next book, Heavenly Hirani’s School of Laughing Yoga, when I was suddenly deeply possessed by the most appalling notion that it wasn’t good enough; that I wasn’t good enough. Who do I think I am, anyway...

Re-capturing the Buzz

Re-capturing the Buzz

So, the phone rang yesterday which gave me a surprise as usually it's the Ginger ringing me but he was asleep on the couch and like most husbandly-type people can only do one thing at a time, especially snoozing at which he is very good, so I knew it wasn't him.  I answered anyway but the man on the other end of the phone didn't help the general confusion as he didn't seem to know who I was and when pressed seems slightly unsure about who he was. But finally we worked out together that he ...
