TO BLOG OR NOT TO BLOG

It's been a looooong time since I last blogged. Life kind of got in the way. Time had come to think about removing the link off my website. But I'd always intended to blog. It was just really hard to start again. Kind of like being de-railed off a diet and finding it impossible to get on track again. But I miss it...

I LIKE BLOGGING. I like the people I meet in the comments. It's like a coffee stop for me. Something fun.

So one of my New Year resolutions for 2010 is to blog more.

I've already started practising--I'm guest blogging over at Love Romance Passion today...come say hi if you get a chance.

And don't forget to drop past and share a coffee with me here on my blog...

OFF TO THE MOVIES

"With great power comes great responsibility"

















So who can resist a hero who aspires to follow that code? Tonight I'm off to see SPIDERMAN 3 with my boys.

Must admit that there are some other movies I want to see too. The academic side of me fancies BECOMING JANE. The scare-me-silly side wants to see PERFECT STRANGER. Robin Williams is an old favourite so MAN OF THE YEAR is a must. PATHFINDER looks fabulous too. What to see next. Decisions. Decisions. Any one have any recommendations?

PS My copies of RICH MAN'S REVENGE arrived about ten minutes ago. Yipppeeee! So I'll do MONDAY giveaway. Don't forget to pop by...

TAWNY TAGGED ME…

Here are the rules:

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.


8 random facts/habits about me...

1. I'm a total beach bum and I've just spent the last week away at the beach (see above), isn't it gorgeous?

2. I hold an irresistible appeal for mosquitos. Argh! I loathe being covered in red spots. Eeeek!

3. I ADORE Margaritas. Sour, salty and very, very sexy...

4. I'm a spice nerd. I can't eat food with a lot of chilli in it. I totally wimp out.

5. While I hate getting cold and wet, I do love walking in the drizzle on a squally day. Invigorating!

6. I love Italian food—especially lasagna.

7. I've had a craving to read Historicals lately—even though I don't write them.

8. Like Tawny-the-tagger *g* I love reading Greek mythology. All those gorgeous death-defying heroes do it for me!
