LUSCIOUS NEWS: A quick update – February 2015

LUSCIOUS UPDATE: Luscious white house and garden


Hi Luscious Lifers,

A little note to let you know that I’ve been absorbed writing my four books, of which I’m particularly focussed on the novel, hoping to get them into “agent ready” shape.

Unfortunately, we’ve also found out that the house we’ve been renting is being sold, so this is very frustrating. I have enough problem concentrating at the best of times, and now we’ve got strangers coming through the house, boxes to pack, a new home to find, and all the associated expenses and inconvenience.

It’s been a great house, and the owners have been fabulous. But they need to sell and we aren’t interested in buying it, so it’s time to pack up all over again. As I said to some of my friends, it’s move number 35,998 for me, and the sleepless nights have already started as I lie awake writing lists and generally going nuts.

I look forward to the day when we can finally settle into our dream house and never, ever, ever have to pack another box again!

So between “book brain” and “moving house angst”, I’m not feeling particularly luscious. But I hope you are and that you’re still exploring all the old Luscious posts, photo galleries and items I’ve curated in the SHOP, as well as the myriad boards on Pinterest, lovely music on YouTube, and my occasional tweets and Instagram pix.

Feel free to leave me a message to let me know how you’re getting on – it’s weird not interacting with you every day. But I will be back once I learn to find some balance.

Cheers, Natasha

PS. The Luscious blog will be down for a few hours on the weekend of February 28-29, 2015 due to server updates. Thanks for your patience during this time.

Today I’m dreaming about being able to decorate our bedroom in a luscious Chinoiserie wallpaper from Gracie Studio. Sadly, we’re living in a rental so this will have to wait.

In the meantime, like me, you can check out these posts:
