Almost time to leave the UK - whinging I am. But the book is very well in hand, thanks to Ruth and her assistance. Thanks also goes to Paul for tea and coffee when required. Some grammatical corrections will be required then just the layout. I have one section with images embedded and the it works and looks good and more importantly reads well.

Grey day and cooler today. Almost time to walk the dogs.

Yesterday was a fun day. Ruth and I wandered around Northfield shopping centre. I took a wonderful photo of Claude who was sleeping in the sun on the window ledge in the front room. Worked on revisions of chapters and watched the apple blossoms 'snow'.

Book work is busy, learnig lots more about the family. Chapter One is looking really good, at least I think so. Have taken editor's comments and worked with them. Added my own changes, added new information and made note of where images are to be inserted. NOW I need to start figuring out the layout!

Finally got rain yesterday and today so very damp dogs. Cats are not impressed either. But now everything out side my window looks incredibly lush and varying shades of greenness. It is wonderful.

My laptop is almost back to normal. Windows had somehow become corrupted during an update. After spending £47 , which I consider money very spent. I am back working on the book. Chapter nine is coming along well. Even after the aaghghgh of losing all my changes in wordpad whilst the laptop was "away". The only problem I am dealing with is that the technician naturally told the computer that it should be a UK keyboard and some of the keys are in different locations, but I now have a £ keystroke!

Some days....glorious, warm, sun is shining. The trees are just genetly dancing in the light breeze. Cars are whizzing by on the wrong side of the road!

I would like to apologise to anyone I am not emailing. Server problems here, I can receive emails but frequently get 'shoved off' and am not able to send replies.
Easter Sunday was a warm, glorious day, not too warm, actually just lovely. Ruth and Paul took the opportunity to clean out the garage and put up shelves to tidy and reorganize.

I worked on Chapters five and six. Added to some other chapters and generally felt good about the progress. Did go outside to assist with the reinsertion of articles back into the garage under direction. I thought of posting the picture I took from the upstairs window of the drive with the garage things on it. But..................discretion!

Yesterday was a very successful writing day. Another section has a good start and some actual details are filling in wonderfully. I went for several walks to clear my head and then concentrate and focus thoughts. It was a sunny, warm day.

Lovely stream runs in behind the home where I am staying. Horses in the back pasture just add to the calmness of the air. You can hear the traffic, but it does not interfere with the feel. The green softness is increasing daily out my window.
