onebrit: Writing is hard for me. I have lots of impending family stuff coming up soon and am a terrible procrastinator, but soon I hope. I love reading all you talented people!

pipersfancy: In my experience, 'terrible procrastinator' is sometimes code for 'everyone else's needs are far more important than my own'. Take some 'self' time... write something... tell us about your impending family stuff... (It might even help lighten your load, to share with others.) Take care!

onebrit: Currently my life consists of work, my sons upcoming wedding and figuring out how soon I can retire, buy a place by the sea and indulge my desire to live, love and learn by the sound of the water....the need for the ocean is a curse of all island born people!

Lovinia: A home by the sea, sounds good to me. I've moved to a seaside hamlet just north of Sydney, Australia. Not quite on the beach ... but very close. Used to be traffic jams and no parking on beach days in the city. Some days I have the beach to myself ..... aaaaah.
I have to agree with your statement ... just gotta laugh.
I really understand your need for the ocean ... though I love the Aussie Outback ... the sea's for me. Take care. Wishing you a happy wedding. I have three sons, and all that to come. LOL Hugs - Lovinia xoxo
Welcome to FS ... sounds like you've a lot on your hands .... love to read your posts when you have the time.

onebrit: Like all of us my life is a work in progress...some days less so than others. Lazy days, enjoying the last of the nice end of summer days. Also 2 weeks off work from a job I am so utterly over.....feeling so relaxed for a couple hours!
One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.
The 23rd Annual Book Awards said:
"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
Paige Swanson inherits her aunt's mansion and moves to Savannah, Georgia. There she meets Cash Wilkins, the architect hired to restore the home to its full glory, and Bradley, the resident ghost - a Confederate soldier killed in the Battle of Chickamauga.
Locals believe Civil War treasure's hidden in the mansion. Paige's new home becomes a target for thieves. Both Cash and Bradley vie to protect her. Who will succeed? Will Paige find an even greater treasure; romance with Cash?
This novel weaves a tale of romance, history, and ghostly mystery that keeps readers enthralled from the first page to the last.
In a world where everything is not as it seems, it can be deadly uncovering secrets that have been concealed within the shadows for years. Across the sand dunes and under the castle of The Flarein Royal Family, there lies an ancient city that once was the one of the largest trade centers in all of Trindavin; however, it is now nothing more than a dark place full of bloodthirsty bandits and gladiators. This dark secret kept from the world is only of the many the mysterious Royal Family of Flarein withhold. When everything breaks lose, the reality of life's cruelty and clarity challenges the growth of the young Princess Melainie. In the end, will she grow, or will she fall further into the dark abyss of the secrets shrouding her past, present, and future?
