Edited to add:
No riding lessons locally for under tens - Sophie will be very disappointed! And the lessons for ten year olds are $50... help!

The leaps and bounds I'd hoped to make this past month have been largely affected by poor health. I find this time of year is a real challenge, whether it be having kids home sick from school or else being unwell myself. In fact, it was at this time of year Joe and I looked at each other and thought that three children really was enough, we couldn't manage having to deal with four sick kids in winter! Snotty noses and sore tummies make for wonderful birth control!!!!!!!! Anyway, the impact of poor health on my writing has meant I'm only just over 57,000 words and I haven't got as far as I'd hoped with my editing and re-writes. I have transferred my manuscript into a folder though, with each chapter in a separate section. This makes it easier to edit and work on my chapters as I prefer editing by hand, then transferring those changes back to the file on the computer.
Please cross your fingers that the winter lurgies flee and that the next month brings great health and productivity! Until then...

here), plus we don't have the kitchen table blocking the view to the back. My double dining table has disappeared momentarily, as I've stolen our 'new' dining table for a temporary desk. Yes, I've relinquished my office space! It wasn't as big a sacrifice as I thought it would be. In fact, in time when it's set up properly, we will have created a hot-desking type situation - a homework space for the kids and a workspace for Joe and I. Photos will come when it's looking a little less paper strewn and a lot more aesthetically pleasing!
