Chicken Soup

I've caught another cold, not good for weightloss.  All I want to do is lie on the sofa and eat chocolate and toast.  I've heard chicken soup is good for colds but I can't be bothered making any.
     I decided that the literary agent that I sent my novel to doesn't want it so I have sent it out to another one.  Again, this one takes email submissions and will let me know within 30 days.  So much better than the old way of sending off your precious bundle and waiting months.  Perhaps I should look at epublishing?  Has anyone had any experience with that?

Holding my Breath

Hmm, another long break between posts,  I've nothing to report actually.  I sent off my updated novel but haven't heard anything yet, I haven't heard back from the short stories I sent out either.  I wonder if I should send out some more? The agent I have sent out to sent an acknowledgement email saying if I didn't hear in three weeks, it wasn't for them.  That seems much better than the instructions I have read on other sites. It surprises me that some places expect you to wait months for a reply, if you ever get a reply at all.  I think I'll give it another week then try somewhere else.
     The weight loss is not going well.  No more to be said on that.
     I have been to Center Parcs again, with my daughter this time.  We had a great time.  My daughter is disabled and everyone was really helpful, even clearing the footbath so she could take her electric wheelchair poolside.  We had to visit a local GP when her asthma started to play up. They gave us an appointment that evening and put her on steroids, which averted a hospital visit.  I forget how spoilt we are having a major hospital ten minutes from our house.  The hospital near Center Parcs is forty minutes drive away.
     I'll try to have more news next time.  I feel like I'm holding my breath waiting for things to happen.
