LUSCIOUS LIVING: Here’s wishing you a luscious weekend…

 

Luscious weekend

 

Hi Luscious Lifers,

I’m still trying to get my head around the potential house move (fingers crossed an investor makes an offer on the house soon so we don’t have to leave) but otherwise absorbed in getting my books into shape.

We’ve got our quasi-adopted German son, Nikolai here for the weekend, as well as his delightful girlfriend (welcome to Luscious, Jemma!), so Mr Luscious is now making cocktails whilst the roast cooks in the oven. We’ve had lunch, played tennis and had a nap – pretty good so far, no?

I hope you are able to have a relaxing weekend too.

Ps. Remember to check out the “A LUSCIOUS LIFE” photo galleries via Facebook:

PPS. I’m currently reading The Silent Wife: A Novel by A. S. A. Harrison after starting and stopping about 6 other books. Have you read it? What did you think? And what else would you recommend I read?

 

 

MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: The Theory of Everything soundtrack

 

 

 

We’ve been loving this year’s crop of Oscar-worthy soundtracks, especially Interstellar (Hans Zimmer), The Imitation Game (Alexandre Desplat) and The Theory of Everything (Jóhann Jóhannsson), but this track (number 17: Camping) from The Theory of Everything is my absolute favourite.

It’s only very short but it makes me tear up a little each time I hear it. I think it’s because it’s both about the music (the cello) and the sentiment (lovers uniting after years of longing).

Do take a moment to play it, as well as the rest of the soundtrack. It’s by Jóhann Jóhannsson.

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.

PERSONAL UPDATE: Writing time

Literary lusciousness - a pile of old manuscripts via myLusciousLife.com

 

Luscious Lifers, there have been no new posts recently as I’m in a whirl trying to get my books sufficiently into shape to send the first chapters to an agent.

Sadly, there is a LOT of work to do to make this happen, which is taking my eye off the Luscious blog. I am, however, usually posting something on Facebook each day (and sometimes the other social media channels) so be sure to follow there.

My apologies to everyone I haven’t responded to, but I hope you understand that my brain is a bit diverted!

Cheers, Natasha
