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?

Loving the new site and thrilled to hear you finally have a desk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!
