Happy 2016 folks! It’s a brand new year full of hope and possibility, so are you raring or holding on to 2015 with your bare teeth?
I’m kind of in-between.
Part of me is making resolutions, pushing to the back of my mind the failures of 2015 and calling them lessons learned. But the other part of me is scared of everything looming in our near future.
Like, will we ever find somewhere to live? If so, will we do so before those buying our house need to move in (mid Feb BTW!!!). We look and look, and none have the space or garden we need – the whole reason for moving from the house we now live in and love.
Will I ever be able to get through the final book of Supes Series or should I remove the first two and just forget about it altogether? I mean, who wants to read a series which never ends? No one, that’s who.
But … aside from feelings of insane panic and self-loathing, I realise 2016 could be the beginning of not only a new home, a new dog (yes, we’re going to adopt another one, but this time an adult), it will also bring new stories and characters, both from me and from you wonderful lot. 🙂
And of course, every month that passes brings us ever closer to the next Star Wars movie!!! We watched the latest one New Years Eve and it was ….. AWESOME!!! Bet you’ve all watched it too???
Just before we say goodbye to 2015

Interesting fact from WordPress:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed over 18,000 times. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
The busiest day of the year was August 8th. The most popular post that day was The Orb of Wrath by Nic Weissman PLUS #Interview #Fantasy #YA.
