I have called this post 'Odds and Ends', which is really very appropriate as my life seems to be filled with odds and ends at the moment.
Take the town of Kelso for example. I have ranted on about the upheaval due to the fact that the paving stones are being replaced. Yes they look good, but when are they going to finished? This has gone on for about two years now. One piece of the town gets finished and then for some reason the whole thing is ripped up again. Why? Did they forget to do something when they did it the first time? Or has it just come to light that one of the workmen is missing and they need to find him? I think I have said that before, but I really do wonder?
On Wednesday it was our Wedding Anniversary so we decided to go out for lunch. It was meant to be a relaxing trip out, just the two of us, after all the problems my husband has had with his health over the last eighteen months. Unfortunately Phil didn't feel well half way through the meal and we had to drop everything and come home rather quickly. He got over it later in the dayu, but it was rather a shame it happened.
I am also trying to promote my novel, The Trojan Project.
It is an all action conspiracy thriller and is only 99c/99p until Tuesday 16th Sept. I have to say the promotion/special offer seems to be going well and I think my publisher is rather pleased at the response. Perhaps the word is getting out that this is a rather good fast-paced read. (Even if I say so myself. I have to say I was left breathless when writing it, as I tried to put everything into the story which begins in The Cheviot Hills in Northumberland UK, when something terrible happens....
It's my sister's birthday today and I gather her daughter is going around to visit with her young sone, Christopher. Valerie will be delighted as she is over the moon with her first grandchild. And so she should be, he is absolutely gorgeous.
Well I think that is all the odds & ends I have for you at the moment, Except to ask you all to stop by my website sometime, I could do with a few visitors. Eileen Thornton :-)
Have a good day!!
Only a few hours left for special offer. Thank you all for your support.
Regarding the situation in Kelso, things have got worse. Today, the traffic was at a standstill when I was driving my husband to the doctor's. We got there in time for his appt, but it was hit and miss.
But we are still smiling - just! Cheers all.
