Last time I wrote it was sunny - and it's been sunny again today. I'm turning into a fair weather blogger. Last time the good weather only lasted six hours, this time it's been warm for a couple of days. And I'm fed up already. It's way too hot. And my little car doesn't have air conditioning.
It's been a while (again), but I have been busy since last time. I've joined Pinterest (or, rather, my alter egos Melissa Welsh/Suzanna Ross have joined). If you look at my boards you'll see such lovely things as Feline Friends, Sweeties, Cake and Where a Fairy Might Live. I've had great fun, but I'm not too sure how useful it all is. I'd only intended to join as Suzanna Ross, but somehow the whole thing linked to Facebook and ran away with itself.
I'm also now all of a Twitter ( @sj_suz ). And I'll have you know I have over 60 followers (eat your heart out Stephen Fry). Again, can't really see the point, but I've wasted a lot of time trying to keep up with it. And there's just so much to keep up with - I think my head's about to explode if I'm honest.
As well as joining all these time wasting sties, I've also been watching television - which has given me a good excuse to revisit my sock phobia. Pobol Y Cwm - in my opinion the best Welsh soap in the entire world - had a recent story line involving a character leaving a sock in his girlfriend's house. She found it when she moved her handbag, which was odd enough. But - and this is the really disgusting bit - she picked up said sock and caressed it with her bare hands, a soft smile playing gently about her lips as she did so. Seriously. Yuk. I'd have needed rubber gloves and a plastic bag at the very least before I'd have touched it. I'm thinking of writing in.
Net result of this is I've done very little writing. But I do have some writing news. Some of you will have seen already on my Facebook Page, (apologies for the repetition) that last week I sold a pocket novel to My Weekly. I'm so pleased I could cry. It will be published on the 9th August. No doubt I'll go on a lot more about it nearer the time.
Hope you're all okay.
