In Germany we celebrated last week both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. The Dads had their day on Thursday, which was a bank holiday, and the Mums on Sunday.
Sexy Hubby is my daughters’ Stepdad but Second Daughter wanted to do something for him too. He got delicious handmade chocolates with a mascarpone base. You cannot see his smile on the photo but it was there!
As for me, I had to wait on Sunday morning while all the breakfast preparations were ongoing until this sight finally greeted me:
The lovely chocolates were from Sexy Hubby and I shared them that night with them both. Second Daughter had painted a bowl to make it look like a water lily. Of course it then made sense to stick a friendly little frog at the bottom of it! Yes I know, my frog phobia, but this one I really like!
I also got lots of vouchers such as listening to Bon Jovi with me, a cake, cook a meal and last but not least, do some laundry folding. I am especially looking forward to that one as I sometimes feel like Sisyphus… As for the homemade brownies, they did not last long!
She also made figurines representing Sexy Hubby and I… I must say, I quite like my breasts!!
No, no fifth extract today of Foundation, the opening book of The Crossing Lives Trilogy… Now that all the main characters have been introduced, it is getting difficult to post new excerpts without giving whole chapters away. I know that the probability of someone stealing what I have written is quite remote but I do not want to take the risk all the same.
I have loved interacting with all of you who have taken the time to read my posts and to give me an opinion. I am of course delighted that so many of you were drawn into my story and I do dearly hope that a literary agent and a publishing house will share your enthusiasm!
And this is exactly where I am now: Seeking representation. The process has begun, and if you could keep your fingers crossed for me I would be very grateful.
There will not be much blogging next week. For a start Sexy Hubby and I are going away for a long weekend; we are very much looking forward to some “couple time” and relaxation, as life has been pretty busy recently. On our return, Second Daughter will still be away on holiday for a few more days and I want to keep my head down. To do as much work as I can on editing my manuscript. Perhaps even complete it, which would be brilliant.
Once again, thank you for your support, it means a lot to me!
My fashion designer in the making of a daughter has very precise ideas about what she likes or not. It does not mean that she demands expensive clothes, which I would not buy her anyway. No, it just has to “look right” and “be cool”.
Just like her brand new shoes:
I must confess that I quite like them myself… And you?
