Forgiveness for my Absence

I recently fell down the rabbit hole that’s called “Moving House”. It included the typical Telstra troubles — first the phone, then the internet didn’t work. Tradesmen have been wandering in and out, and have on the whole been marvellous.Β And tolerant of an old dog who wants to say hello — convincing Toby that they’re not his instant friends isn’t worth the trouble. If they say they like dogs, I let him say hi.

My study is now functional.


Even if the books have still to be unpacked.


While I’ve been buried in house stuff, “Hero Duty” has been popping up in newsletters.

And my article on the power of the Cinderella story was published in The Romance Review Quarterly. It’s not power and wealth you need. It’s love.

  1. I know all about the trials of moving. At least your phone and internet are in. And Toby is at your side. πŸ™‚ You never post enough Toby pictures.
    I hope things get back to normal soon. Maybe you can post pictures of your new digs. Did you move far from your last home?

    1. I can’t believe Tank is twelve, Maria. Toby is nearly ten and definitely reaching old gentleman stage — until he forgets and reverts to puppyhood! I’ll try for photos πŸ™‚ The weird thing is the move was only a couple of suburbs. You’d think that would make it easy. Let’s just say the new house sprung a few surprises (oh I’m so tactful online and so profane in real life!)

  2. Welcome back, Jenny. You’ve been missed. Hope you’re settled in now and enjoying your new study. LOL I mean house. πŸ˜‰

          1. Get yourself to the shops immediately. We can’t have our star writers running out of chocolate. πŸ™‚
