Picking Up the Pen Again


Hello all!

My apologies for the long silence.

The past two months have been intense and draining, but at least we are now happily set up in Australia.

My mum came up to China for two weeks, helped us to pack our things and finish up everything there before she brought me back to Oz. My husband did all the final fiddly stuff and then followed a week later. Without their hard work, patience and support it would have been a complete shemozzle.

Both of us are suffering with some nasty health problems at the moment. We are averaging at least 2 medical appointments a week between us as we try to find some answers.

We’re both wiped out. I’m struggling to get any writing done. Some days I only manage 20 minutes at my computer and other days I can’t even summon up the energy to turn it on. It’s tough!

Over the past week I’ve picked up at little, but I don’t want to get my hopes up too much. Little by little I’ll claw my way back to writing.

I mention the above not to complain, but to explain my absence. I haven’t forgotten all my readers and friends here. I miss you all very much.

I thank everyone for their patience and support. I hope to be back to my usual blogging self in the not too distant future.
