Well … no, not like Kim Kardashian. Yikes! What a disturbing thought.
He’s into online gaming. I thought he was just playing games like Lego or Disney, but the other day I walked in on him playing some game where he has to rob banks and shoot people. There was blood splattering everywhere.
Consequently, he got in trouble and was booted off the computer.
Later that night, when I was writing, Computer Guy asks me to check something on the web.
*Cue the sound effect for wrong answers on Family Feud.*
I asked Computer Guy if he had limited our sons profile when he created his logon. “Err, no. I was getting ‘aroundtoit.’”
Not the bloomin ‘aroundtoit’ thingy again. This time-poor state of being is an epidemic, I tell you.
“Riiight, well the internet doesn’t work.”
So, it was 10 pm and he had to try and fix the computer. Once again I got booted off. Since then we’ve had to change our internet browser and I’m, once again, trying to learn a new program. Grrrr.
Please, please, please bring me a laptop for Christmas.

P.S. Enjoy the cookies and I made you a Milo instead of plain milk. I don’t know if you’ve had it before, but it totally rocks. Enjoy!
On a more serious note …
Author of Laces and Lace, Toni Aleo, recently posted a video reply to an email she received from an unhappy customer. It made me want to buy all of her books immediately.
I thought she handled it beautifully. It’s on her Facebook page if you want to watch it. Here is the link.
I just wanted to say, please be kind to each other. Don’t post or even email anything that you wouldn’t say face-to-face.
I wrote a little poem, it’s probably rubbish but it’s to the left of my blog posts. I used to write poems when I was a moody tweenager.
As writers, we are all just trying to do our best and write something that people will enjoy. It’s not easy, juggling our commitments to family and friends with the enormous amount of time required for writing and the business side of things. This is proving to be a very steep learning curve, not only for me, but for my family too.
I enjoy this immensely and I feel absolutely compelled to write. Like Toni says in her video, ‘these people are in my head and I have to get them out on paper.’
Yesterday, I spent a couple of hours walking around a place where several of the scenes in my book take place. It has changed a lot since I was there last. It was brilliant to get a feel for the sights, smells, sounds, tastes and atmosphere of the place. I can tweak those scenes and make them better now.
It’s not often I get time to myself and I really needed it. So, now I’m rejuvenated and the computer is fixed (thanks Computer Guy *mwah*), I’ll go back to writing, writing, writing.
Take care of each other.
