Oh, it’s a great day, full of love, laughter and romance. Flowers, chocolates, engagement rings, candlelight, romantic meals for two, a last Rolo, holding hands, innocent pecks on the cheek, love songs, love poetry, love stories, romantic movies – it all brings a smile to my heart and a tear to my eye.

If you’re in need of something romantic to read or a last minute romantic gift, 8 Slices of Cake is now available at: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/281812

A wedding, an 8 tiered cake, 8 short stories, 8 writers from all over the world, each writer has chosen a different cake for their characters attending the wedding. Each story has its own cake recipe. No surprise to those who know me that I chose a chocolate cake.

We are comparing this book to the movie “Love Actually.” We all write in our own unique style. 8 Slices of Cake will make for a fun read about marriage, divorce, romance, dating, failed relationships, and finding love.

I have just finished reading 8 Slices of Cake from start to finish, and am so proud to be part of this ebook. Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Reading!

It’s official! The drugs work! It’s been 4 nights in a row of between 11 and 12 hours sleep for our girl who has only been getting an average of 10 hours sleep a night for the last year and a half. That’s Chamomilla 30c homeopathic remedy and Night Essence Flower Remedy.

This is one very happy and well rested mummy. Homeopathy and flower remedies rock!

I’m in heaven, and not a chocolate heaven. No, it’s a heaven created by an unbroken sleep. For the first time in a long time my 3 yr old daughter slept for 12 hours last night. And I do believe it’s thanks to the homeopathic remedy chamomilla 30c and the flower remedy Night Essence.

Going insane from nearly one and a half years of broken sleep, we put her on those remedies last Sunday evening, and after just 4 days we can report that she’s gone from 10 hours sleep a night to 12 hours last night.

Let’s hope it continues and that there’s no more waking for two hours a night, and no more waking pre-dawn, claiming she’s had enough sleep.

I will keep you all posted.

Some would argue that spring starts in March, not February, but if you are to follow the Celtic Calendar, Imbolc is a Gaelic festival celebrating the beginning of spring, and it falls on February 1st, halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. So for us Irish, spring is indeed here.

Okay, so I know it’s still cold, wet and windy, but just knowing that it’s February puts that extra pep in your step, doesn’t it? The birds are singing, the sky is blue, some of the time, the sun is shining, at least right at this moment, and the air is full of promise. The days are starting to get longer and they should start to get warmer too, any time now, I’m sure of it.

Valentine’s Day is right around the next bend, sprinkling the air with a tiny bit of love dust. And I don’t know about you, but I just can’t resist watching a few rom-coms at this time of year, and reading stories about love. Speaking of which, keep your eye out for 8 Slices of Cake, a romantic ebook out soon on smashwords.com. It is a collection of short stories compiled by  Melanie Toye and written by myself, Paige Bleu, Meadow Bleu, Lisa Day, Monica Lee, Paula Mills, Brenda Perlin and Melanie Toye. Each story is about a person or couple attending a wedding and the stories are linked by the bride and groom, Ava and Michael.

And if all of that wasn’t enough to have me jumping for joy this spring, this month sees me teaching my first creative writing class, which excites me no end. Writing, reading, teaching creative writing classes, watching rom-coms, celebrating Valentine’s Day, bringing out an e-book with some great writer friends, this February really is a great  month.
