All gone

Hi everyone,
Well the day has finally come and my last little baby left. I was amazingly emotional. Actually, it's not so amazing really as I am a bit of a sop in any case, but I did find it hard to say goodbye to that little button-eyed black ball of fluff.
But now it is back to work without the distraction of little puppies under my feet, although we have some renovations being done at the moment so from time to time a workman passes via my office window on the scaffolding. Very distracting!
I am about to start a medical this time around. It will be fun to get my teeth into something new after spending months on the Italian trilogy.
Hope you have a great week.

Last days

Hi everyone,
So what do you think? Haven't they grown into cute little kids? Their faces are so much more distinct now they've had their first top and tail at the groomer's. I am going to miss them but after a few sleepless nights just lately I think I might not miss them as much as I thought! They are now eating a lot more which is making them settle better. Polly seems rather determined to wean them. She keeps wriggling away from them when they rush up to her.
They are wreaking havoc on any shoes left lying around as their teeth are needle-sharp. Toes are a big favourite too!
My daughter-in-law is cuddling them in the photos. She particularly loves Teddy who seems very drawn to her too.
I have some exciting news. I recieved two Cataromance awards for 2009 for The Marcolini Blackmail Marriage which was in a book called Mistresses by Blackmail with Kim Laurence and Day Leclaire and also for my Karedes continuity book- The Future King's Love Child. A special thank you to my reviewer who always does a great job of reading my books even though she often gets them late!
All the best for a happy week. Think of me as I say goodbye to two of my babies this week.

The Nanny!

Hi everyone,
Well as you can see Pippi has turned out to be the perfect nanny for Polly. When Polly wants a break from the kids Pippi steps in. Thankfully Polly doesn't fight her anymore now she knows the puppies are in good hands, or should I say paws?!! Pippi is so gentle with them. She would have been a wonderful mother herself but we didn't want to breed with her all those years ago. Now I think she is a very frustrated mother!
It is so sweet watching the babies grow and change. They each have distinct personalities and I can tell them apart but no one else can with the same strike rate.
On the writing front all is going well. Thanks for all the lovely emails and Facebook comments about my books. I find it very inspiring and motivating to be given feedback.
Hope your week is fabulous.
Mel xx
