My New Writing Life in UK

I am still around, just very busy. My son was in the UK when we landed, he was visiting family, and usually lives in Canada, so it was wonderful to have a day at the zoo with him, our eldest daughter, and her little, 21 month old, daughter.

We have walked the beach, and are slowly adjusting to our new life in the UK. We had a huge shock with one of our financial investments, and it has now created a difficulty in our situation, however, we have a roof over our heads, and I am a carer for mother, so she is enjoying being pampered. We will cope. DH and I enjoy fishing, and this is a pic of him scouting out a quiet spot. It is so lovely to see flowing water again.2013-06-30 11.01.28






I walked the area where my latest novel, The Man in Room Eighteen, is been 2013-06-30 11.14.02based.  2013-06-30 11.03.20 Elle Buchanan, my POV, is an artist, and lives off of the offerings from the sea, and dunes.

The sun has shone ever-since we arrived, it is breaking us in slowly to the new weather experiences. One thing is, we have no regrets leaving Cyprus. I do not show off my granddaughter pictures on my blogs, at the request of my daughter, just be assured she is gorgeous, advanced in age, funny, and loved very much. We have been more active in two weeks, than we have in many years, and it feels good. Thursday, (tomorrow), my niece gets married, and we will celebrate a English garden party style wedding, so the good weather is a blessing.

Thank you all for your continued support while I am catching my breath. I do appreciate it very much. I have tried to keep up with your blogs, and apologise for not visiting properly these past two weeks. Normal service will resume … when both feet are on the ground! ♥

    Thanks for your update Glynis. The landscape photos look so bleak, but from what I remember of visits to East Anglia, that is part of its tremendous appeal. Good luck with your UK writing career and your life closer to members of your family.

  2. Margot Kinberg says:

    Glynis – It’s so good to hear that you are settling into your UK life. Your mum’s lucky to have you nearby, and it looks as though you’ve arrived to some lovely weather. I wish you all the best as you get started again…

  3. Karen Walker says:

    Yes, it is good to hear from you. Sounds as if you have your hands full getting acclimated, taking care of your mom and being with your children and grandchildren. Sending you good thoughts and good wishes for continued joy, despite the unexpected financial setback.

  4. Family is so important. I’m glad to hear that yours is a close one. Finances, while important, are secondary – or so I have to keep telling myself.

      Yes, we are taking each day as it comes, Yvonne. We left the Cyprus crisis, and just need to breathe now. Love knowing my girls are up the road by about 20 mins. 🙂

    Sending good thoughts to you. Hope you will soon feel very much at home and that many more blessings will come to you. I surely understand financial anxiety – we once lost many thousands to an unscrupulous contractor who nearly destroyed our house. At the time it was immensely overwhelming, but my husband and I finally decided we had to get past it. Money comes and goes in this life, and as long as our family was safe and healthy, we would try to put it behind us and focus on better days to come. Here’s to many better days ahead for you and your lovely family!

    Hi GLynis – good to read you are settling in – thankfully the weather is being kind to us all at the moment ..

    Can quite see the reason for not posting the little one .. pity for us – but do quite understand ..

    The financial aspect is a great nuisance .. but am glad you’re coping and you can look after your mother .. see the family, including your Canadian son and family …

    Cheers for now – I’m thinking of you at the garden wedding … Hilary

    It all looks lovely Glynis – a summer house to write in that’s near the sea! And in England! It must be hard to adjust after such a big move, but I’m jealous of your location 🙂

  8. Glynis, I rather like the area, from the shots I see!
