Yay - Book 21 completed

Well folks, I've only gone and done it, finished scrawling book 21 in the Gaby series!

That means that you should be able to get your sticky mitts on a copy from later today. The full edition Book 21 will join it on the shelves later in the week.

So here are the usual links for you

Luck of the er Yorkshire person!

Yay - new Gaby posted without issue! so click on Gaby Book 15 ~ Friends ~ Chapter *32* A Time For Giving to read the next action filled epsipode from the Rheinland.

In other news;

More Gaby is with my editor, with a determined effort I will get out part four, book 21 on Sunday - fingers crossed!

What a cock up!

okay - so its late, set out terribly but it is posted, that's Special Request part 6.

It should be better but 1) I had to use a duplicate copy rather than the original as I forgot my pen drive, 2) BC crashed on me whilst I was uploading it and 3) I don't have internet time to waste trying to sort it out. So, sorry its not set out brilliantly, sorry its a week late.

I am still on track with writing Gaby, following wind complete next weekend.

oo er missus!

So okay, my plans for Sunday went a little awry, I ended up on a day trip to Lincoln and didn't get near a computer - you will get the next instalment of Nena soon, I promise.

Today you do at least get another Gaby chapter, A Different Christmas is up now for your delectation and delight.

In other news -


Well you can read the new Gaby chapter now - Pretty Maids all in row will I'm sure give everyone a few chuckles.

And finally, very much overdue I've bought a new bed, the whole kit and caboodle! I feel so adult, never done it before but I guess with a new generation coming along I really should grow up a bit!

There should be more on Sunday



Blog About: 


Well I feel I owe everyone an explanation for things happening or not over the last week or so.

If you recall my Mum passed back in June, it would've been her 80th birthday on Tuesday so we thought it timely to spread her ashes today. I've had to organise some odd stuff over the years but this was a difficult one. It was her wish to end things on the NYM, her favourite place, Wheeldale.

Gaby rides again

Midweek already.

Its a busy week for me, lots of bike riding (180km so far), a visit to the doctor (apparently I'm in robust health but my heart rate is quite low), some writing and - well its exhausting being me! I've still got a night out, more riding, more writing and shopping to fit in before the weekend.

Sunday Post

Is it really another week gone?

I've had a busy week on the bike despite the hidden 'help' from various weather systems!

The writing on the other hand is going in fits and starts, actually writing the new Nena is much harder than deciding on the plot so I'm somewhat behind where I wanted to be - hopefully I can get into the grove this coming week.

In the meantime you can read the next Special Request chapter here.

its Wednesday which is Gaby day!

and here it is, Dash For It.

I'm still wrestling with Nena's holiday snaps, I don't have the photo editing suite I used to have and what I do have is pretty useless which makes any graphics stuff more work than it need be. I will sort it out but please bear with me.

made it

Blog About: 


To Austria after two longish daysof travel. So today is free to do whatever so we take the gondola up the local 1700m plus mountain - pretty tame really except it was snowing at the top. Not just a dusting either as we found out when we took the short scenic walk as a) it as still snowing so blanking any views and b) we were pathfinding through several inches of the white stuff on a rocky and rooty route. That meant that Dad was struggling a bit in places as he's not brilliant on his feet but we made it none the less.

Bonus posting

Moin, moin!

well between trips I've scored a bit of internet time so Girls on Film gets to see the light of day today.

In a mere handful of hours I'm off on my travels again - to sunny and snowy Austria for nine days of 'relaxing' after a fortnight of cycling and walking!

So enjoy this little interlude and hopefully next week you'll get a bonus posting of stuff.

take care
Gruss Gut!

New Gaby Stuff

Dressed to Kill, the next Gaby chapter is now posted.

Sorry but its likely to be another couple of weeks before the next posting as I'm away for most of the next fortnight.

Hopefully you'll get some holiday snaps from Nena, new Gaby chapter and who knows what else at that time.

bye for now


bad news!

Blog About: 


Yes very bad news - well for me at any rate, I'm sat here at Europoort near Rotterdam, Holland waiting to board my ride back to Yorkshire.

Yep my short sojourn to foreign land is over, i'll be the wrong side of the water in the morning and hopefully meeting Podracer for dinner Monday night.

Nena has been with me so you will likely get words and pictures next week.

So ttfn
Wish me a flat crossing


good news for the Gabfen

Yep, a quick heads up for all the Gabfen out there, the second part of Book 21 will be available from tomorrow in all the usual formats, Kindle, Lulu tree and digital.

I will of course post links here and there will be more free Book 15 as well.

So watch out tomorrow, be the first to read what Gaby did next!

Ciao for now



it's strange how you can misjudge people.

I recently reposted one of those things on FB, i'm sure some of you saw it, the subject was essentially transgender use of toilets. Well much to my surprise, a friend i've known for about 20 years of work and leisure posted a reply saying it worried her which was quite unexpected as she's of very liberal politics and IME deeds. That in itself didn't bother me, each to their own.
