sheep for sheepish and check out my word count!!!

What a lovely surprise in the post this morning, jj sent me these gorgeous little sheep to add to my collection of anything "sheepish." In case you can't see they are book marks so will feel very much at home with my sheep books and mugs. It has helped me a lot to know that I have been in my fellow bloggers thoughts over the past three long months. Life here moves on slowly.

I have been under the weather for the past three weeks so have not managed any writing but I have typed up some previous work and to my surprise my word count is now up to 40000 words with more still to type. It has given me some encouragement and I hope to get back to my wip this week as I think I am finally on the mend. It's the OH's turn now and we all know what men are like when they are ill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you have ever seen "Open all Hours" with Ronnie Barker I am threatening him with Nurse Gladys Emmanuel if he stays in bed too long!!!!

We are still waiting for a start date for the Builder, are they the same the world over? The weather is sunny and warm most days so I hope to be back running and cycling this week.

I love the bookmarks. I am soooooooo proud of you on the word count. I am sure that typing it up has thrown you back into the story and more words will sring forth.

Good luck being nursemaid :-)

See, you can have four books on the go at once! I'm so glad they arrived and made you smile. As soon as I saw them, I knew I had to buy them for you.

They look gorgeous with your other Sheepy things.

40000 words, woo hoo! That's great! And glad you're on the mend. Sorry to hear about the 'man flu' though. Of course the poor dears do get it SO much worse than us. (Yeah, right!) I'm envious of your 'sunny and warm', here it's drizzly and grey and chilly.
