Happy New Year!

Hello again everybody,

Happy New Year! I wish you all a year filled with love, laughter and healthiness (if that is a word 🙂 ).

I just got back from my holiday and am almost back into the routine of things. The washing has been sorted and lays piled up in the laundry, waiting for their turn. Suitcases have been emptied and await their storage in the attic. Pre-holiday mess has not been cleared by pixies, so will have to deal with this still.

Also, an appointment with the GP has been made to unblock my ears. We went diving in the Maldives (I know, lucky me!) and I’ve got swimmers ear now. Never had the problem before and I have been diligent with cleaning my ears after every dive, but unfortunately it hasn’t helped this time. I sure hope they can fix the problem as it is a horrible sensation. I may try to use a home remedy of a mixture of rubbing alcohol and vinegar before the appointment. Waiting thirteen days with blocked ears to be seen by the doctor is a long time.

I found out this morning that my car has chucked a tantrum for not being used for almost a fortnight and refuses to budge from its spot. It starts up okay, just doesn’t want to move. Fortunately we are insured properly and somebody is coming to have a look at it within an hour. I feel disabled without being to move around as I please, so I hope it’s just some rusty break pads or the likes. Fingers crossed.

Writing wise nothing has happened over the holidays, but I’m sure you can imagine why. I did get some reading done though and have finished The Hostile (by Joy Mutter), Vesta Mansion (by P.A. Priddey), The Second Guess, (by Keith Dixon), and am about halfway of The Keresa Headdress (by Larry D. Schackelford). Not as much as I had hoped, but still a good effort if I may say so myself. I will put some reviews up soon. My New Year resolution is to read on a daily basis. I will probably set an hour apart every day for this purpose.

Anyway, enough chatter by me. More writing news in the days to come.

PS: Nobody got infected by me after my visit to Holland. Phew!
