Polly and Fifi and my progress thus far. . .

Thank you, for all your encouraging comments last week..it gave me a huge boost and has kept me going each time I came to a grinding halt.
I've been scribbling away and sketching and making progress with my story. Even had two other stories vying for my attention..I jotted them down and have put them on the backburner for now.
Having the ideas is fine, no shortage on that front but getting my ideas onto paper and making it flow that is hard. Really hard. I'm like an old spluttering car wondering if the petrol will run out before I get to the top of the hill.  So far so good, the top of the hill is still a long way away and I keep having battery trouble.

I took a little pit stop and Polly and Fifi joined me for lunch after her early morning shopping trip to "The Sales". Polly found herself a darling little yellow dress with matching handbag and shoes...and a matching collar for Fifi.  "Perfect for this Spring and colour coordination is key..." she told me.  I wouldn't dare disagree.

Off to scribblers corner...see you next week with an update... xx

LOVE Polly and her dainty pose, I can only dream of being so elegant, which is why I live in Scotland and not France :)
