Reasons to be cheerful - 3rd May 2018

It seems to have been a super-busy time since I wrote my last reasons, so here goes for this week...
People seem to like my fiction...

I posted a page on this blog featuring one of my latest fiction stories and it went a bit bonkers! Anyway, do pop over if you have a spare 10 minutes and feel free to let me know what you think. I won't put any spoilers out there, but it's not full of sex, violence or swearing.
The garden is coming on apace...

I wrote here about how the garden is coming on. As it's National Gardening Week this week it seemed a fair time to focus on my adventures with green fingers.
Tonight Matthew I'm going to be...

Performing at an arts event where I'll be showcasing some of my music as well as reading one of my stories. I can't remember the last time I performed in front of an audience that I didn't know, but A LONG time. You'll have to wait until next week to find out if it made me cheerful.
The cats...

  1. I hope the arts event went really well and I’ll take a peek at your story. Mich x

  2. Great news about your fiction - if I can find 10 minutes I will have a read! I do miss my daughter's cat as a companion... It does feel great sorting out the garden.

    1. Got so much done this weekend, with the cats in tow :-)

Reasons to be cheerful - 5th October 2017

It's a quickie this week... I'm still loving my job and really glad that I made the move. I submitted two commissioned articles to editors and they were happy. I'm off on a trip, a couple of nights away (more on that next week). Hope you've had a great week too.

Reasons to be cheerful - 7th December 2017

1) After a day of sawing, drilling, cutting, etc, etc, and then a new bit in the boiler...We have gas! Yes, our heating, hot water and cooker are now working - the gas is fixed! SO happy after 12 days without it.

2) This morning Boyzilla was greeted by a dead RAT outside the sitting room. Whilst yucky (but not as yucky as if I'd had to clean it up), it makes me hugely proud that my cats are, well, cats.

3) The two planning tools I ordered for 2018 to help me move forward with my plans to do more writing have arrived and I'm looking forward to spending big chunks of the next four days exploring them and planning for a fantabulous year.
