I’ve had the most awesome week!
Last Thursday the boys and I went Trick or Treating at Sunnybank Shopping Town. On Friday for Halloween, Cole and I dined on burgers at Grill’d (Cole had the sweet chilli chicken and I had the crispy bacon and cheese) before catching Ghostbusters on the big screen. On Saturday, we met up with family at Boondall lake and watched model boat racing for the day. Then all this week, Cole and I watched Season 1 of Buffy 😀
It was the first time Cole’s actually sat down and watched Buffy episode-by-episode, and I’m very happy to report he enjoyed it! Of course, I’m not surprised – he is a Doctor Who fan after all and can appreciate great writing when he sees it 😀 Tomorrow we start Season 2 – I can’t wait.
Speaking of Doctor Who, the season 8 finale aired this morning. Cole and I will be catching it sometime this evening, once the littlies have gone to bed and we can watch without distraction. I really hope it lives up to expectations. Last week’s episode was exceptional and the massive Missy bomb was totally beyond all expectations. I found this season a little hit and miss though, but I have faith in the Doctor Who crew. They’ll make magic happen again, I just know it.
On another note, I’m very excited to announce that a writer friend of mine was offered a publishing deal with Evernight Publishing this week, for her romantic suspense novel, Desperate. Congratulations, Athena Daniels! I can’t wait to read your masterpiece once it is released to the world 😀
Progress on my WIP is coming along nicely. I’m currently working on scene 20 (of 39) of my first draft – so I’m just past halfway. I’m taking my time with it though – balancing it with my family time and work time. It’s only one more year until Sebby starts school so I want to be available to him as much as possible and not completely lost in my work. There will be plenty of time for me-time once the boys are older. One thing I learned with Cole is how fast they grow up – I mean, gosh, he’s starting high school next year, and it doesn’t seem that long ago that I was trotting him off to prep! I’m just so glad I get to enjoy the little-kiddie years one more time with Sebby and Dom. It’s lovely (albeit crazy at times).
The law firm is going well. We have our first few clients now, and this weekend we started our marketing campaign. So, all things going well, business should start kicking off very soon.
On a final note, I recently finished playing the 20th anniversary remake of one of my favourite 90s games, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers. I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The soundtrack is amazing and the graphics phenomenal. It made me fall in love with New Orleans all over again, and tickled that urge inside me once again to travel. Of course, that will have to wait.
Anyways, that’s enough from me for today. I’m going to go now and tap out some more of scene 20 and then, once Dom wakes up, pick up Cole from his ong ba noi’s.
See you on the other side of the TARDIS!
PS. Only 5 weeks til Tassie! Woohoo!
