C Mead final logoI did have a lovely Creating an Author Platform post all organised for today, but it appears that switching Catherine Mede to the new web host has managed to lose the post.  But that’s OK.  I will write up a new one and have it ready for next week.  For today, I am happy to announce that there are some changes coming in my life.  Last year I had to drop a lot of commitments because I couldn’t juggle so many different roles.  And I have just had to drop another one.  As of the end of the term, I will no longer be working as a teacher aide.  I loved working at the school, but in the last couple of weeks, I have been crying at the idea of having to go to work, and that isn’t a good space for me to be in.  So I have decided to finish up, although I have given them a few weeks notice.

Hopefully this means that I can focus on writing a bit more, but we will have to wait and see.  First, I have to get my house in order – cleaning and it is spring, so spring cleaning time is upon us, a good a time as any to get some junk chucked, rubbish binned and cupboards cleaned.

I hoped to have Curse of the Taniwha would be finished by the end of this month, however I have been working with my husband every available time.  In fact, this is the first Saturday in a very long time that I am not out working with him.  The reason for this is that my darling son turns 10 tomorrow.  10.  I can’t believe my baby is 10!  So I am taking him and a couple of mates to play mini-golf and go roller skating.  Looking forward to a little fun today.  Next weekend we are going to celebrate the 40th birthday of a deceased friend.  So another weekend free – yay!  Nice to finally relax, and hopefully once the school holidays come about, I am able to have some “me” time again.

So until next week (or Monday, depending on if I get my act together), have a lovely day.  🙂

    Omg, TEN?? It’s insane isn’t it?? Ivy is ten in Feb and I am really struggling to get my head around it LOL.

    Funnily, I was just about to blog about dropping commitments, even when they are things you enjoy doing – I’ve just started the process of getting out of being a Brownies Leader.

    Well done on doing what’s best for you. A good spring clean usually helps as well, in fact, I think I’m overdue for a round of de-cluttering, so thanks for the push in the right direction.

    Keep up your awesomeness xx
