Thoughts on a rainy day

I'm sitting at my desk looking out the window at the rainy day outside and marvelling at the fact that I have a desk. After three years of making do, I know the desk isn't a necessity for work, but it's definitely nice having it and having space to put my notes or handwritten pages etc.

Workwise I've had a very disrupted few weeks so I'm itching to get back down to things. I did manage to attend my first RWNZ chapter meeting this Sat and that was a much-needed shot in the arm. I loved being able to catch up with my friends and meet all the new faces. Fellow Desire author Tessa Radley gave us a hilarious report on the RWA conference and her trials and tribulations in actually making it to Atlanta (via South Africa and London) - I wish I could reproduce it here. I guess I'll just have to bug Tessa to get her own blog.

I somehow also managed to acquire several books over the weekend. The first one I've been waiting for, for a while - fellow New Zealander Karina Bliss's debut book: Mr Imperfect. Can't wait to dive into that one. It's signed and everything!

Also I wanted to say that I've been unable to catch up on everyone's blogs as I'm on a slow connection right now (fingers crossed that changes later this week), so tell me your news! What's happening in your corner of the planet?

Congrats on having a new desk.

I'm dreaming of the new desk (not just a folding table) that I'll get when I move in a few weeks.

Until then, I'm just going to admire you for already being through your move (although I guess your stuff is still in transit, huh).

Heather - thanks! :)

Emma - you have my sympathy. Seriously this moving business is HARD. I never want to do it again. And yup, most of my stuff is still in transit but the hard part's the boxing up and cleaning up. Good luck!
