They're here!

Hi everyone,
I am officially a granny. Polly gave birth to three gorgeous puppies on Boxing Day: two girls and a boy- Perdy, Teddy and Daisy. They are adorable. It was a beautiful thing to watch, she is a natural mother. We are loving the experience and I am sure things will get rather busy once they open their eyes and start moving around.
I hope you enjoy the photos. I will be taking heaps so keep in touch.

Not many sleeps now

Hi everyone,
Well, it's not many sleeps now until Christmas and I can just imagine the panic in those households where there are little children and too much excitement. I remember it all so well and miss it a little. It's going to be a quiet one for us this year for Polly's sake. A pregnant poodle does not need a crowd of guests. She does need some turkey though! She will be thoroughly spoilt, you can be sure of that. She already is.
I am writing book three of my trilogy. I know, I said I was going to have a break but these two characters have been in my head right from book one. In fact they were the first to come alive and I had to put them on hold while I wrote the other two books. It's been an amazing experience.
I hope that wherever you are in the world and whether you celebrate Christmas or not that you have a safe and happy week. I hope that the next time I post I will have some exciting news and photos to show you.

Back from Sydney

Hi everyone,
Just when I thought I couldn't get busier I had a party to attend to in Sydney which gave me a brilliant opportunity to do some much needed Christmas shopping. It also was a fabulous chance to catch up with two great friends and my gorgeous daughter-in-law. My son is just about to land back from France where he was attending a computer game conference.
I had three late nights so it will take me a day or two to get back into gear, I fear!
The dogs missed me so much, and Polly is now starting to look pregnant. She's so cute. She is refusing to use the pet door so I feel like a doorman, standing there opening and closing it for her like she is royalty. What an attitude! It's not just the pregnancy, she has always been like it and grabs any opportunity she can to be waited on like a princess.
I am about to start book three of my trilogy. I have to get Christmas stuff done first so I can get into it and stay in it. I can't wait.
Have a happy week,
Melanie x

Finished another book!

Hi everyone,
I have just finished book two of my Italian brothers trilogy. I am so excited about this series. It's been one of the best writing experiences of my career. It's been really special getting to know the family and the back story. I have been able to dig deeply into the emotions too so I hope you will all be pleased when they come out next year sometime.
How is the Christmas shoppping going? I started today. Yep, finally. I have yet to put the tree up but that is planned for this evening. There is just not enough time in the day!
It looks like Polly is indeed pregnant but it is hard to know how many puppies as this is her first litter. My guess is only one or two but I could be wrong. First time mums- even human ones- don't often show until the last minute. I will definitely keep you all posted on her progress.
I hope you have a fabulous week.
Love Melanie
