Adventure Week 1 - Orinignally Posted 05/07/14

So, We've been in our cosy new home for a week today. It's been fab! Maybe I still feel like I'm in holiday mode, I dunno. But I love it! The sun streams in the windows all day long, I walk out and step onto lovely grass, it's quite peaceful (except for today as the people whose yard we're in are having a big party today so there's loud music and lots of kids!) and I love being so close to my Dad if he needs anything.

This week has been so free and easy! I bought a watermelon that must have weighed 12lbs and re-enacted the "I carried a watermelon" scene from Dirty Dancing. Sadly there was no lake dancing afterwards. I read 2 books and reviewed them both (The Life You Left by Carmel Harrington and Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige). I've started 2 new books (You Had Me At Merlot by Lisa Dickenson and Disraeli Avenue by Caroline Smailes).

I always read 2 books at a time, one on kindle and one proper book, just in case you wondered. I have done a little bit of ebay work and I have spent lots of time with my lovely man. We have chilled out. Like properly chilled out, watching tv series (Sons of Anarchy) and chatting and just being together with nothing else to worry about. What a difference to 3 weeks ago!

There's also been a big change in ME. I'm relaxed. I'm learning to let go and just go with the flow. It's so nice to not have to plan everything. I'm still working on it, but I like the idea now! I've found my reading mojo, I want to write again. I'm walking around barefoot, which is how I was brought up. I'm wearing my hair down, long and curly and loose. That's a first. Even my friend Sarah (who's my hairdresser too) said it's never looked better, relaxed and controlled curls. I just feel great for the first time in ages.

On Wednesday, we bought a bigger caravan on ebay. When they got it back here, we all just stood around and went "bloody hell, it's big! That's not going in that yard!". Sadly, it was too big for the space we have available. So, we parked it on a friends caravan yard and listed it back on ebay. We now have a better idea of how big we actually need. NOT THAT BLOODY BIG! It's ok, it was an idea that didn't work out. Nothing lost, no problem.

 Move on and keep looking. For the time being, our cosy little caravan is perfectly fine SO, that's been our first week of our Big Adventure. Let's see what week 2 brings, eh? xx

Blog Tour Stop with Extract - When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for  When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May! I have an exclusive extract for you today!


What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
