Bus Life Continues (aka, Why I'm a Rubbish Blogger)

Well, long time no blog. Sorry guys. I officially suck at this!

Here's what we've been up to...

The bus now has a completed bedroom (except for the back wall, which will soon have a door put in it that will lead to the new bathroom). It is gorgeous, like a little log cabin, all wood and cosy. I will post photos soon, I promise. The floor is stunning but the long shelves are my favourite bit, they hold a lot of books!

The lounge is taking shape slowly. We have ripped out the old settee, moved the table and chairs (which are actually the original coach seats and table!) to the other side of the bus, we have built the new window frames (we are shrinking the windows) and 3/4 of the ceiling is up. The ceiling is incredible! I am so, so proud of Justin! It's arched like an old Gypsy caravan and it looks amazing! We are awaiting the new light fixtures and a few bits of wood in order to finish it and when it's done, I promise I will post pics. For now, there are a few on my Facebook (Trish Tishylou Hills) and Twitter (@Tishylou). It is just awesome! We are currently sitting on my moon chairs (comfy garden furniture) while we make the final decisions on the sofa size and placement. All in all, Yolo the Eco Bus is coming along nicely! We've been toasty warm and dry during the cold winter, don't worry!

In other news, we've been trying to get lots of work done so that when the nice weather comes, we are more free to enjoy it. We can kind of hoard our stock and it will sell continuously without much help from us, so make hay before the sun shines, I guess! This means, though, that I haven't been reading much. Sorry people! I've been listening to audio books while I work, which is cool but I have hardly read anything at all! I have a commitment to keep for a book that's being re-launched on March 5th called Geek Love by Katherine Dunn (from Poppy Stimson) so I am working on that one now. It is really intriguing. Also trying to find time to finish The Curvy Girls Club by Michele Gorman. I am LOVING it and really, really want to finish it! I will, I promise! Next up will be Leaves for Chloe by Pat Elliott.

So, that's what we've been up to. Things are good, we are happy and this has been the best thing we've ever done! I can't wait to see what happens next!

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…
