So much news has happened in the last few days.....all of the good kind. Julia Williams (first time round Novel Racer Jane Henry) is launching her first book here . Go celebrate!!!

My dh has finally updated his web site with more photos! He's really the creative one in the family. His site is here http://www.fotofenwick.com/ .

On the home front I can report the tree is up, the lights are up, the pudding is made, the cake is made, the pressies are wrapped and I have just discovered I am not cooking Christmas dinner this year!!!!

Oh and while I was fighting my way through Asda for more Christmas lights I fell upon the books shelves and found a little pressie for moi - Michelle Styles' A Christmas Wedding Wager (it's part of a two book collection Christmas by Candlelight). I cursed Michelle as she kept me awake last night........my eyes finally gave in but I was only half way through. Now as I have done most of my tasks maybe today i can sit by the fire and read????

My big bonus of the week aside from having two more family members in the house is I'm having coffee with fellow Novel Racer Flowerpot on Friday!!!!

Crikey you are well organised. Good for you not having to cook Chrismas lunch. I don't have to either this year, such a relief.

Jane Henry said...

Hi Liz, thanks for the heads up. How long are you in the UK for? Any chance of a meet?

And forgot to say and meant to ages ago, I loved your chapters of August Rock - have you revised them?

Lane said...

How do you do it??? You've also done all the NR admin today! If you take vitamins Liz I want to know what they are ... now:-)

Your husband is a brilliant photographer. I can see his influence in the photos you've posted.

Oh, Liz, what a compliment! Well, the first thing Caroline does is to ... Argh, no, I'm supposed to be Christmassing, not writing. Bad Jan. I shall go and despair over my List For Tomorrow.

I always seem to find little gifts for myself while shopping for others, and very often, they are books. Glad you found yourself a little something! Merry Christmas!

Jan said...

Just saying Merry Christmas!

Love your desert photos further down the page - must be weird to be back in Blighty after that!

Have a fabulous Christmas and thanks for all your hard work for the Novel Racers. Don't know what we'd do without you.

How fab that you are meeting up with Flowerpot. Is that in Plymouth? If so you might see my little village, Cawsand, across the water.
Thanks for everything you do with the NRs and have a great Christmas

Hi Liz. I'm about to sign off blogger until after Christmas so thought I'd pop by to wish you and your family a very Happy Christmas and New Year. Here's to a writing-filled 2008! x
