Chai And A Chat #66 #ChaiAndAChat

Happy Monday to you all! I hope your week was as good as mine!

  • If we were sipping chai together I’d sit back, relax, and tell you that the first week back to school was actually pretty good! The new girl is still growling, but peppering the growls with smiles, though she did kick out at a member of staff, which wasn’t so good… Still, baby steps. She’s going to be doing half days for a short while, and hopefully, once a bit more confident, she’ll be with us for the full day. Honestly, she’s like a frightened animal.
  • If we were sipping chai together I’d say that book-wise, things are going well too, I have finally got all the niggly changes made, and everything is all set for Pub Day on the 9th February. Still working on the actual blog tour posts, though! One highlight was taking delivery of my new book marks.
  • If we were sipping chai together I’d have to mention another awesome thing that happened. someone I don’t even know, someone who looked at my cover and blurb, shared it in a Romance group on Facebook! And I didn’t even have to ask! I was speechless. That means there are people out there who will read my book, even though they don’t know me!
  • If we were sipping chai together I’d tell you that we took a lovely stroll along the prom on the weekend. It was beautifully sunny, but chilly, with a bit of a wind whipping up around us, but still… fresh air! Got Lil Princess out of the house willingly. That was worth it, itself!
  • If we were sipping chai together I’d mention that two evenings a week are now keeping me busy, with the taxiing to tutoring on a Tuesday, and now a Thursday for Lil Man and his Winter Indoor Cricket nets, along with getting them both to Badminton on a Saturday morning. I’m glad though, that is a good few hours that they aren’t glued to screens!
  • If we were sipping that chai together, and possibly reaching for cake or cookies I’d say that we have Lil Princess’s first ever parents evening for secondary school on Wednesday. Somehow, her one doesn’t fill me with the dread of Lil Man’s! (wonder why?)
  • If we were sipping that chai together, and possibly reaching for cake or cookies I’d tell you that I really need to finish writing the blog tour posts!!!

Right, that’s me done Peeps! Let me how your week has been!

    You got to love this woman, and her writing. I already read her book and is great to say the least.

    Thanks, Ritu. Your usual, cheery, chatty post. Feel sorry for the little, troubled, girl. None of us knows what goes on in the minds of others…however hard we try, but of course we must go on trying and sometimes the problem(s) are hopefully solvable. Teachers are valuable people.. x.

    Busy week for you Ritu, just as usual 🙂
    I hope, that the girl will find herself safe in your class in short time.
    Good to get kids away from the screens and into physical activities instead, I agree.

    I love the way you shared different topics. If we were sipping Chai together, I’d say I might this idea from you. I have different short things I want to share. BUT HOW? I love this approach. Confirms one fact… two great minds think alike. 😉
