I am pleased to report that Snuggles is recovering from her Bloat/Gastritis/Gut Stasis, life or death illlness. A huge thanks to my mum, for tirelessly nursing and syringe feeding her. She still continues to do so. I will always be eternally grateful to my mum for saving Snuggles’s life, and the fact she was alive for her third birthday party, on Sunday 12th of October.
How do you celebrate your pet’s birthday?
Write soon, embrace your quirky and your pet’s quirky too.
To those of you who enjoy my Quirky Weekly Wednesday Writing Prompts and wondered has happened to them, they will be back.
As I have a ton of photos from my Disneyland Paris/London holiday to share with you, as well as video footage, I will be predominantly posting posts about those for at least the next couple of weeks.
I am pleased to say that Snuggles has improved in health and seems to be healing. I am praying it stays that way. Thanks to every one of you who has sent their well wishes. After Cinnamon was suddenly severely sick and passed away before my holiday, it’s been an intense and emotionally difficult time for me. Snuggles is my furry kid and furry soulmate. It’s her 3rd birthday tomorrow, and she has plenty of potential years ahead of her. I have her birthday party stuff ready for tomorrow evening when I see her.
To give you a taste of Disneyland Paris. Here are some quirky Disneyland Paris writing prompts to wet your appetite.

It was a back to the future moment.
The castle was on fire!
It was a fairytale come true. I knew from this moment on, my life would change for the better, forever.
Embrace your quirky and write soon.
I am honoured to have had a post written about me, my writing and my efforts to help people who are redundant to get back into work, by Al from http://kattermonran.com.
I am so thrilled, it is such a great write-up and Al is very popular in the blogging community. He is a genuinely a nice guy who isn’t afraid of being himself and sharing his experiences to help others.

Fantastic news. I got Daisy’s test results yesterday, her lumps were fatty tissues, not cancer. I am over the moon with joy.
Second piece of good news, it’s my 3 year blogging anniversary today.
I am pleased to announce that this quirkybooks blog has 201 followers.
Thanks to each and every one of you for your loyalty, support and contribution to this blog. It feels great to get to know you and your quirks.
I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you, that liked and shared my blog article “Have you got the guts to run your own business” on Sage One. It could just as easily have been called “Have you got the guts to run your own writing business.”
For those of you who are currently unemployed and interesting in starting your own writing business, this article explains how the Enterprise Club Start-up Training Course can help you, by finding out if you have got what it takes to start and run a business. At the end of the course you will be able to decide whether or not you have a viable business model with a business plan that predicts a profit. You can use this business plan to apply for the National Enterprise Allowance. With the National Enterprise Allowance (NEA) you get the opportunity to work with a business mentor and the chance of having a loan of up to £1000. I did this course whilst I was unemployed last year and learnt a lot of valuable information, knowledge and skills, that has helped me on my way to turning my writing into a business.
As you can see from the following screen shot, the article has received good feedback and lots of sharing across social media. In particular I want to give a humungous thank you to Louise from Inspire your business, who took the time to comment on the blog post itself on the Sage One website. Louise, you are awesome and your support is greatly appreciated. For anyone interested in running their own business, Louise’s blog offers inspiration and advice. Here is the link to her site: inspireyourbusiness.wordpress.com
If you want to know if you have got the guts to run your own writing business, here is the link to my blog article: sageone.com/2013/08/23/guts-to-run-your-own-business/
Please let me know what you thought of the article and what further advice, help and support you would like?
I am thrilled to have had my guest blog article published on Sage One – The accounting company.

Please let me know what you think by commenting below and if possible, by commenting on the blog itself.
Paul Lancaster asked me to write it, he is in charge of the blogging for Sage One and I met him at The Business Show in London in June. He is also an author for Wiley who write the Dummie books. http://www.dummies.com
At present, Wiley have a book proposal from me under their division of Capstone. http://www.thisiscapstone.com Any positive comments I get on the Sage One blog itself, should help towards persuading them to publish me, so I would appreciate any help that you could give me.
Thank you in advance and many thanks for all of the lovely comments that I have received about this blog and about me. I appreciate your support, love and care.
I know it’s hard for me to believe that I met and spoke with HM the Queen at St James’s Palace on the 15th of July. Therefore it must be hard for some of you to believe it too. Here is proof from the official photographer, Theodore Wood Photography, http://www.onlinepictureproof.com/theodorewoodphotography that it did happen.
I was at St James’s Palace for the Community Service Volunteers (CSV) 50th Anniversary celebration.
To see the full range of CSV event photos, go to the website and click on “Events” – “Community Service Volunteers” – “View Album.” I am on page 7 of 10. These two photos are the best photos of me and HM the Queen. The music on the website is very beautiful too.
I hope you enjoyed these?
