Life Outside of the Office by Fiona Lowe

I made a pretty big mistake last year...I misunderstood my editor and confused the 'production' date of Runaway Groom, the third book in my Wedding Fever Trilogy, with the hand in date of the first draft of the book. What did this mean? I lost SEVEN weeks of writing time. Holey Moley! So as you can imagine, I haven't done much lately except work. However, the book got handed in and I've had a week off before returning to the desk today and tackling my edits. So what did I do?

I visited a friend who has recently moved to the coast.

I went to the movies and saw this art house French film, A Woman in Paris.

I baked my father a flour-less chocolate cake which was amazing! The recipe is here

And yesterday I caught up with some writers including fellow Tote Bags n Blogs contributors, Anna Campbell and Annie West.

It's been a fabulous week out of the cave and I'm ready to return tomorrow.
How do you celebrate the end of a work project?

Saved By The Bride is the first novel in the Wedding Fever trilogy. To follow the story of Annika and Finn, Bridey and Hank and the quirky folk of Whitetail, head to Amazon, Kobo, Nook, Carina Press and all other places eBooks are sold. Picture Perfect Wedding is available for pre-order and is out August 2013

It's sounds like you had a great week. I must try the cake recipe out for my daughter.

Sounds like you did have an amazing week and you’re so lucky to get to get with Anna Campbell and Annie West. I’ve chatting with both of them online and hope that one day I can get a chance to meet them in person. Anna keeps saying that if I get to Australia, we’ll share a pot of tea and have a good old chat. What fun!

Now that I’m retired, I find myself celebrating everyday doing my favorite thing which is reading. Ahhh! Life is good!

All the best to you and now I need to help myself to a “cyber slice” of your delicious cake! :-)
