    Love you tell it like it really was…wheres the romance in writing a book? It’s bloody hard work!

      Heheh. And thanks for getting me on the track to finding the fancy chair!

        I now have chair envy…might need to get one to finish the various books and stories I have started. I’m sure that’s the missing piece of the jigsaw and will boost my creativity and productivity, but does it come with a built-in procrastination busting button? 🙂

    Totally agree on the chair! I have one very similar, and while I almost fell off it when I saw the invoice it has been worth the investment many times over as I can now stay still longer!

      Good on you for investing in it. You deserve it!
