Things are looking up

It was a glorious weekend!  I'm happy to tell you that summer has finally arrived.  Yay! I have been basking in the sunshine with my family.  Ahhhhhh, beautiful.  Let's hope it lasts.

Ahhhh! Sunshine!!!
Coffee and a slice of lemon drizzle cake made my day!
Anyhoo, wherever you are in the world, I hope you are all well.

Things are definitely looking up at my side of the world.  The last one item on my list - my driving theory test, yes that one that gobbled up most of my spare time reading, memorising, worrying and freaking out then reading and memorising again until I was sick of it - is finally out of the way now that I've passed! Keep your fingers crossed for me for my upcoming practical test!  The battle is not over yet. Hmp! But, I passed the first test, didn't I?

Also, I've just finished revising my story for the Tiny Dancer anthology! Another Yay!  So now, I've finally returned to my current manuscript, after five long months of sitting on it.  I'm reacquainting myself with my characters.

This coming week, although chock a block with appointments and all, and constantly on-call in case of any event happening with my son at school, still smells of good writing days ahead.  I'm so glad to finally write again.  It doesn't matter if it's fifty, five hundred or five thousand words in a day as long as I write something.

So, my lovelies, this weekend I don't have any movie/film feature but I will be posting on the books I've read so far and some personal secrets will be revealed in the days to stay tuned!

Tell me about your weekend!

What are you reading?  

Or movie that you've enjoyed watching?


  1. Fun in the sun, I'm happy for you. My weekend was ok, I've been working Saturday and Sunday. Good luck with the test :-)

  2. Oh this weather is truly gorgeous!!!

    Glad you are on a writerly track - yay for you!

    Good luck with your practical test! Of course you'll pass - it's a done deal!

    Take care

  3. congratulations Len, and best wishes on your upcoming practical test and also best wishes on your writing, wishing you best of luck in everything you do and love :)

  4. So happy you passed. And thrilled you're on a writing roll! Ready for our group yet?

    I edited both yesterday morning and this morning. Plan to do the same tomorrow.

    Enjoy the sunshine!

    I just finished Perfect by Ellen Hopkins. I'm about to begin A Million Suns by Beth Revis. And I'm rereading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

  5. Yay for lovely writing days! Good luck with your practical test! We're rooting for you :)

  6. Hi Len - so pleased you passed the theory - well done: a relief.

    Isn't the weather great .. two feel-good British movies are over on my latest blog post ..

    Delighted you're enjoying yourselves .. cheers Hilary

  7. Hi Len! The weather has been fantastic, hasn't it? Congrats on passing your theory!

  8. Hi Len! The weather has been glorious, hasn't it? Congrats on passing your theory!

  9. The weather has been glorious, hasn't it? Congrats on passing the theory test!

  10. We are in the best time of year. I love this month! Not too hot. Cold gone. Flowers everywhere!

    I came by from #writerssupport4U to say hi and follow your blog. Glad I did.

  11. I hope this weekend was lovely for you too. We had rain here. Still have it.

  12. Congrats, Len! Huzzah! I'm happy to say this w/end was spent enjoying the sun-- not remodeling our house for once. Sunday was a bit blah, but whatever. I was able to dig into my book club's pick of the month: The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton.

  13. Yes, that was a lovely warm weekend, but it's back to grey skies and rain now here in London. :( Hopefully not for too long.

    Wanted to let you know I've nominated you for a blog award!

  14. Congratulations Len on getting that theory test behind you, the practical will be a breeze after that.

  15. This puts me in a good mood just to read it. And that cake looks yummy! Good luck with your practical, Len!

  16. That lemon drizzle cake looks amazing. Perfect breakfast right there! Good job on passing the theory test - I have yet to get my own driver's license...the journey to transportation independence isn't over for me yet either! Hmm, the last book I read was The Hunger Games...and the last movie I saw in theaters was Avengers.

    By the way, I'm hosting an awesome blogfest and critique giveaway at my blog from June 22-24 that you should totally come participate in if you're interested! :) Hope you have a great day.

  17. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

    A while ago I put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's a collection of short pieces, mostly dark fantasy.

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog.

    If so, please email me: Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy.

    You can download a sample from the ebook's page on Smashwords:

    I'm also happy to do interviews, guest posts, or giveaways. Just let me know what you'd prefer.


  18. Congratulations on passing the written part of your driving test. Good luck with the driving part. My daughter is going to do it next week. She is a nervous wreck.

    I'm glad you are having a nice weekend. :)


    And congrats on passing the test!


Thank you for your comment. I appreciate your time and am very pleased that you have read my blog. I will be coming over to visit yours, too, if you have one.

Happy to see you here!
