It's Been A Long Time!

Hi! I know, I know it's been a while, two weeks in fact! The truth is I didn't think I had anything list related to say at the time, but looking back, perhaps I was mistaken. Updated tasks as follows:-
The Novel
Well this has had more editing than I care to disclose, but just as I've got it finally to a point where I feel it's ready to be sent out, I gave a copy to Mr M to read and he's come back with some further amendments. Nothing too drastic, so I just need to whip my ass into gear and get a synopsis together and then I can send it out. I'm planning, at this moment in time, to go to a Marie Claire event in Leeds this coming Wednesday, where an Agent will be present, so no better time than the present to start the process and crossing everything in sight!
Learning A Foreign Language
Any car journeys (and there has been a few at late) and I'm quite good at taking my i-pod and listing to my French phrase book. Two problems with this 1) My pronunciation is crap and 2) As soon as I say the token phrase I've forgotten it - I think I need to also look at something visually - I suppose this has been quite useful in discovering how I learn new things and also discovering what a prat I must look to other drivers as I randomly spurt out token French phrases.
BBC Radio Nottingham
I was booked in for another paper review last Wednesday and also booked in for a further one on the 3rd of September. Unfortunately it was the same day that the news broke of Sven coming to Notts County, so I had a very quick few minutes to update on tasks completed and run through the papers. Pretty chuffed that they keep asking me back though.
So that's what I've been getting up to, since I last updated yourselves, oh and a little matter of me and Mr M finally, finally getting the house sorted to put on the market and move out of our inner city dwelling (rumours that Sven is purchasing our property so he can 'hang with the kids' is completely unfounded at this present moment in time). We should be ready to market in approx 1 month's time, so looking forward to that, but not looking forward to the hoards of strange people trampling through our house.

I promise it won't be so long next time...
