Stops and starts

I began working on my 5th book (not sure about title yet) a couple of weeks ago. It always amazes me that it's so hard to start, but as soon as I do, I just feel so much better. About everything.
So it's frustrating that I've had so little time to concentrate on it. Last week Joe was off school all week with a nasty virus. Then this week I went with his class on a trip to the Science Museum, attended the last session of a course on helping to teach children literacy skills and now today it's Jacob's turn to be off sick. And next week is half term, so I won't be getting anything done then either.
On the plus side, I've received my first newsletters from Mystery Women, been invited to attend Dulwich Library's reading group and have received a lovely email from a woman who really enjoyed reading Nirvana Bites and Trading Tatiana. Thanks Kath! You're a star!
