Now there are loads of things I want to blog about and everything is rushing about in my head so I will try and make some order of it. First a huge thank you to Phillipa Ashley who kindly posted a photo for me of my beloved Cornwall here.

I am sadly behind in my blog reading having been enjoy the Eid holiday here. When we were away for a few days i was without Internet access which the DH thought was a very good thing but now I have so much to catch up on..........So here's a wonderful link over at Ray-Anne's blog on beats. I couldn't begin to explain it but she does the most amazing job. I don't think I could write this way but I do think as she points of a fantastic tool for writing if a scene isn't working.



I have been tagged by the fabulous Lisa at http://eudaemoniaforall.blogspot.com/. It is a fabulous book meme which I look forward to doing but I realize that without my books with me I can't really do this properly so I will have to wait a month until I am in the villa and the boxes of books are unpacked......so I must post a reminder in the my diary as my brain is not too good at remembering these days.



Now for a bit of a rant. I have spoken about the refresh problem and the wonderful J came to my rescue. I have discovered that doesn't always work ( a 75% success rate) so I am doomed while living here to be behind. I will learn to live with it. I have also found that on Facebook I can't update my virtual bookshelf as that is a banned site. I am also finding that I can't google certain people. The wonderful author Rachel Hore is one. I hope she will find this amusing but I wanted to check to see if she listed who her agent was on her new website( which is beautiful btw) and couldn't remember her web address so I googled it - hah. Big red sign saying banned. Fortunately I remembered that it's was linked from Hilary Johnson's web page and I made it there in the end. This morning it won't let me go to Lisa's blog??? Or visit one of the people who commented on my post below. Arghhhhhhhhhhhh.


Having said all the above living in Dubai is great......I just want to get into my own home!!!! Enough rant. I must catch up on blogs........BTW dd is on half term this week and ds2 arrive Thursday and dds1 arrives on Sunday so posting and visiting may well be erratic at best.

I think you'll find Rachel Hore's agent is Sheila Crowley at A P Watt. Good luck!

Once at a aeronautical convention in China that boasted:

"FULL INTERNET ACCESS"

After some surfing, one of my colleagues risked life-internment by altering the sign thus:

"FULL INTRANET ACCESS"

It was true. There was nothing, nothing, that could be accessed outside the confines of Chinese aeronautics!

Leigh that is definaitely worse than here......it's just getting used the change I guess.......

Ray-Anne said...

Many thanks for your kind words. Hope the post is useful - and I would recommend the Jenny Cruisie link on structure which explains it all far better than I can!
Take care and have a fab family gathering - Ray

Thanks Ray-Anne. Your post was fab :-)

Ooh, the banning of things. That's so irritating. We were banned from YouTube for months and months (can't say why, because they might ban tea-stains - ha ha ha). I used to get really p***ed off when I went to a blog that said 'this is so funny/witty/interesting' and I couldn't watch it. Anyway the ban is lifted now so I can catch all those things!

That must be incredibly annoying, especially if the ban is 'miguided'.

I'm sure the blue skies make up for alot though.

Lisa said...

Take your time on the "All About Books" meme, of course. It was pretty fun -- couldn't get to my blog -- oh wow, am I banned? It would be terrible, but on the other hand, how cool would it be to be "banned"? BANNED, I tell you! Ha!

liz fenwick said...

Hi Lisa. You were banned only for a short time! Later in the day you were fine!
