It has been a while I know. I actually didn't realise how long until I looked at the date of the last blog.

I had a lovely Christmas but because of it I haven't been able to get much writing done. I get my new rota today (as an official permanent member of staff) so I will be able to organise myself and get some writing done on my day off. The annoying thing is that I have the whole thing sorted in my head I just need to find the time to get it down on paper. I will be getting back to it for definite this week.

I also ignored my cross stitch for a while and haven't been able to send updates of Celtic Christmas. That will also be starting up again. The only thing that hasn't really suffered has been my reading. I think that is only because I read during my breaks at work. I have finished the Stephen King book which was very good. Stephen King is definitely back on track with this one. A little strange in places and I will have to wait for the next two books to see where he is going with this. Now I am reading Renegades of Pern by Anne McCaffrey for in work and Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell at home.

I finished stitching Mickey and have even posted a picture to my webshots album and the cross stitch group I belong to. I have received lots of nice compliments for him. I'm now finishing off a flower fairy that I started a while ago for my mums Christmas. It shouldn't take me too long to finish that. I also have a card that I want to do for my mum and dads Christmas. I was going to give them one that I had already stitched as I couldn't see a nice one. Today however, I saw the one that I have been wanting to get them and so I bought it. I think I will be able to do it in time.

Finished reading !984 which was amazing. I will do a review of it at the weekend. I have also since finished Skipping Christmas by John Grisham and have now started A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I have read Christmas Carol before but since it is the season I thought I would read it again. I am only reading it at work. At home I am reading the fifth Stephen King book in the Dark Tower series (it's too heavy to take into work). It's part of this months book discussion and so far I am enjoying it. Still trying to remember what happened in the last four though.

Over the weekend I made some revisions to chapter one of the Pegasus story. I have the whole story line in my head so hopefully I will plough through it. This is definitely going to be a story that develops some of my main characters. I have four in mind at the moment. I was originally just going to concentrate on two but I think there is opportunity in this story for another two of my characters. I twill then lead on to the next story where I will concentrate on some of my other characters who aren't getting as much time in this story. It means that most people will have to read my stories in order so that they can understand the characters. I might try to keep past events of each story out of new stories as it isn't fair to first time readers but it will be difficult and I can see myself giving up on that idea.
