Listening to: The Lumineers "Ho Hey"
Outside: Grey sky threatening rain
Well - as of Friday, 19th October, I am a married woman!
And that explains the neglect I've shown this blog for the past couple weeks.
Karen and staff at the beautiful Cusworth Hall couldn't have done a better job with our ceremony, and the whole team at Thornhurst Manor gets our vote as wedding reception extraordinaires!
And I've come away with a beautiful ring that I will wear always, and more importantly, I've got my beloved best-friend-turned-husband, a man I am more than happy to grow old with.
It all reminds me of a sun dial we used to have in my backyard as a kid, which read:
"Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be."
A day to remember. Awwww.....
And so, this post is just to remind you, dear reader, that I am still out there, and still going for my goal of finding an agent. Even a wedding won't distract me for too long! (Although it was a very, very, very pleasant distraction!)
As of yesterday I finished my novel re-draft, printed it on my trusty printer named Stu, and I am now in the process of reading it through on paper one last time - snuggling up on the couch, not far from the fireplace, cup of coffee in my hand - imagining the (better, tighter) story as it slides past on the page. And hoping, always hoping.
Have a happy Sunday!
