Our little puppy is amazing!

We've just had the shopping delivered again and Mitzi was an incredible little girl the whole time!

After her running out of the door several months ago I've been paranoid about her doing it again so I hold on to her collar while Steven moves the bags into the house then closes the door and I take the fridge and freezer stuff into the kitchen.

Spectacular moment number 1 was that she jumped off the sofa and went down the hall when the food arrived so Steven asked her to go back into the living room, which she did, then jumped onto the sofa and sat down.

The second spectacular moment was even better than that... Steven asked me to take some rubbish out to the bin while he put the shopping away so I asked Mitzi to stay and opened the door while I put the rubbish in the bin. The door was wide open and there is no way that either of us could have stopped her if she'd made a run for it but the wonderful little girl stayed exactly where she was until I came in and closed the door!

She's just such a special little girl and I'm so glad she is ours!

I'm getting impatient lol

It's only been three days since I emailed an independent publisher about the books I'm writing and first off I was nervous then realised I'd made a mistake in the email so I sent another one apologising but I still haven't heard from them so I'm thinking I'm in their slush pile (or whatever it's called) before even sending one of my manuscripts!

I told you I was getting impatient! lol

OK, so it's been less than a week but I just want to know that they are willing to do a bit of hand-holding is all. I'm tempted to find their phone number and try calling them tomorrow but I don't want to get on their bad side so I probably won't

How long should I wait though? I just want to know if they are interested in reading the manuscripts or not!

Mitzi is...

Mitzi is our little pup... a Westie that we re-homed from Dogs Trust back in July last year and she is wonderful! Our food shopping has just been delivered and our little Mitzi just sat there watching TV - the thought of running out of the open front door didn't even cross her mind!

Not many dogs would do that even if they'd been trained but Mitz has only been trained to obey "stay" and she is amazingly obedient considering she's only 20 months old!

I gave her a biscuit as a reward for being so obedient and we'll need to get her another box of biscuits soon! lol

Everyone should have a Mitzi in their lives!

U ready for this?

It's been a few months since my last message in here so thought I would update you all on me... don't run away too fast! lol

I'm pretty much always walking down the stairs in the house now... the only time I bump down on me bum is when I'm bringing the Doggington babe down after she's come up here and refuses to go down the stairs on her own... she can do it when she doesn't think about it but as soon as the paranoia cogs start whirring she just won't go down on her own for some reason!

I'm still gloomy about not having a name for what is wrong with me but that's nothing new.

I'm writing 2 books and a short story that I'm hoping to have published in the not-too-distant future... I've got to finish writing them first though! lol I emailed a publisher that sounds ideal a few days ago about my Toni book - keep your fingers crossed for me! I'm also doing a creative writing for children course which is why I'm writing a short story, not 3 novels! lol Everything is going well with that I think... my memory is letting me down though :(

Ho hum... enough of that!
