And where on earth have you been?
Oh, you know, writing a cook book.
At this hour of the morning?
Yeah, took a little longer than I planned.
What’s that in your hair?
Oh this? Plasterboard. While I was writing the book we discovered that the waterproofing had failed in our ensuite. The damage continued into my office. So I’ve been writing the book from a camp table in my bedroom, while the tradesmen come and go.
and that green stuff on your shirt?
Lime curd.... or booger... maybe booger.
**Amanda seems unsteady while removing her shoes**
You smell funny. Have you been drinking?
No, but I think I’m tanked on waterproofing fumes. Yesterday I told the cabinet maker the tradesmen’s entrance was in my bedroom. *blushes*
**spies Amanda’s red eyes**
Have you been crying?
Yes. While I was writing the book I lost the President of my fan club. I can say that without upsetting the Vice President, because while Mum could write you an alphabetised list of my shortcomings, Dawn didn’t seem to think I had any faults. I’m one of very many who are missing her.
Also potato soup. I cried tears of frustration trying to make potato soup look appetising.
Are you back to stay?
Hell yes. It’s good to be home. Now let me in. I need a nap.
On a serious note, thank you for your patience while I've been focussing on the book.
what's new with you?

Hahaha!!!!! Can't wait to see how you made potato soup look good. Did the cabinet maker blush or run away?

Welcome back! We missed you! It's hard to make potato soup look good but you know what they say, the fuglier the food, the better it tastes!
Welcome back lovely lady!
Take the time you need, make it the best book you can do, the blog will be ready and waiting when you're ready.
And I 've never met a spud soup I didn't love, so I am sure it's going to be fine.
Welcome back, Amanda! Sounds like you've definitely had a tough ol' time recently. It never rains...
Looking forward to reading posts but also hope you are looking after yourself.
