Deadlines... Who needs them?

Well as we all know I am working steadily towards my deadline and as hard as I try, with all the best intentions in the world, I feel like I am running in quicksand.  

Here are a few of the reasons why I am finding it difficult:

  • 'Mum':  this is a word that 9/10 times when it is said I smile and reply with a 'Yes Hun, what's up?'  but off course today is that 1/10, today is the day when I am feeling the pressure of the impending DEADLINE and my children forget they belong to a two parent family and can only remember to say 'Mom, can I have...' or 'Mom, I'm starving...' yes, today is the day I am changing my name to Margaretta Bobblypops Noname, yup.
  •  Juggling:  I don't know about you, I know this is something us women are supposed to be good at, and to a degree we are, but today I have discovered my limitations and that I have only been gifted with one pair of hands.  

So if like me you are experiencing the above I have a suggestion, do what I am doing right now...
  1. Insert ear plugs
  2. smile and nod, occasionally make listening sounds
  3. order takeaway and if all that fails, the last resort,
  4. find a room and lock yourself away, but not before you pin a note to the door saying,
               Death To All Who Dare Enter
     (unless bringing gifts to appease the monster: Chocolate & Cola - acceptable offerings)

So as I retreat into my cavern of endless magical worlds and hot Warrior Witches I ask only one thing, if you wish to contact me, please know - Cadburys is always a winner and Redbull will give me more than wings :)

Excerpt - The Guardian: Forest of Ancestors - Chapter Two

The Guardian: Forest of Ancestors

:::::: E x c e r p t ::::::
::::: Chapter Two ::::::

'Earth to Eli? I swear kid you need those ears checked, I think you have had one blow too many to that noggin of yours,' Fuck! Caught red handed you twat. With an embarrassed cough I could feel a wave of heat hit my face and it wasn't caused by the fire either. I felt like a kid caught with his hand in the cookie jar, I faked picking something of my boot.

I Choose to ignore the fact that she'd just called me out and instead slowly lifted my gaze, but as I was about to open my mouth, 'Would explain a lot,' Fionn chipped in, a big ole grin on his mug, 'I mean man, you can't tell me it don't look like he's been beaten with every branch of the ugly tree.' The others laughed and Eion slapped him on the back congratulating him on his witty take down.

My face broke into a broad grin as I flipped him off, “Bite me Barbie.”
