Happy Belated (really, Kwana?) 5th Blogiversary to Me!!

Saturday, December 29th, 2012

Oh my goodness! Here it is my blog birthday has come and gone and I totally missed it. How like me is that one?

But you see, like myself, ye old blog has become a woman of a certain age and as with women of a certain age it seems we’d rather forget such milestones and just keep things moving, you know going on with the day to day, no fanfare and all that. But you know these things must be noted and indeed celebrated just as the as the turning of the New Year.

So please raise a glass with me to ye old blog and more importantly raise that glass to all of you! Cheers and thanks so much for hanging with me all these years and for your wonderful support of by debut novel Through The Lens! I’m currently deep into writing book 2. Working to make that an even bigger, better and sexier story so please look out for updates here and on my Facebook page. Big hugs and lots of smooches all around.


In the year to come I hope to make ye old blog bigger and better and yes, I hope a bit more interesting. I also hope for myself, not to give resolutions and definitely not to be bigger, but I do hope to be better and maybe more interesting. Yeah, we’ll see how that goes but for a change I’d like to make it my plan to have more fun trying.

Here’s to living your story in 2013!

All the best.

Optimistic Pessimism… a Blogiversary

Monday, December 26th, 2011

I hope those who celebrated had a very Merry Christmas yesterday. Today at ye old blog we are celebrating our 4th Blogiversary!

Wow I can’t believe it’s been 4 years over at ye old blog. Honestly, it’s starting to feel like a marriage now or at the very least I should be graduating or getting some sort of certificate. But no, all that’s happening is it’s about to turn 2012 and still I don’t have that flying car that I those formative years of watching The Jetsons had me believing I would be having by the year 2012. I’m feeling a little duped about it all.

Oh well no use crying over cars that just go on wheels or dreams of years past. Time to move forward. Time for this strangely hopeful pessimist to start thinking about the year ahead. Someone told me this year would be the year of Kwana. I sure like the sound of that though I so find it hard to wrap my head around. See though I’m forever hopeful, I’m one of those ‘always waiting for the other shoe to drop’ type of folks. And I guess if you’re always waiting for that shoe to drop you can’t see the great boot trying to lift you from behind. I know bad analogy so I’ll just stop here and say… Thank you all so much for sticking with me these 4 years. The semi-famous Jackster thanks you too. And we are optimistic about great things for all of us in 2012. Cheers! Fingers crossed for fab boots for all of us!

So tell me, how are you thinking about the year ahead? Are you optimistic?


Much love,

It’s A Blogiversay & Merry Christmas!

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

Hello folks today I’m celebrating and not just because Christmas is almost here but because today is my 3rd Blogiversary!

So Merry Christmas to all of you and Happy Blogiversay to me! Here is a little pose from me and a couple of real Rocketts. Can you guess which one I am? Let’s just pretend I’m in Rocketts shape and not in jeans and my ratty oversized sweater shall we? Ok, thanks.


To celebrate I’m giving away the cheer and having a giveaway. One lucky commenter will win this 10 pack of books from MY bookshelf from super fab romance authors.

So please leave a comment saying whatever you like as long as it’s nice you’ll be in and hey, if you like pass the word on Twitter or something, it’s just good Karma I think. The winner will be picked on Sunday night.

Thanks so much to all of you, my blog friends for following me these past years. I can’t believe it’s been 3 years. I truly feel like I’ve developed some true friendships which seems so odd but I know it’s true and I thank you all for being here and coming back. This is a surprising and lovely resting place.

Best and with love,


and the Jackster too!!
