Birthdays all round


Hi everyone

My illustrator has extended my book deadline to 9am this Wednesday 22nd. I have typed up all of the chapters but still need to do a final edit on them. I also have the book blurb to do and most of the index to do.

This extension has meant I could spend some extra time with my Grandma for her 96th birthday yesterday and to see her today. She has been poorly and I really needed to spend time with her.

Also, I saw Daisy and Cinnamon for some of today, to celebrate their 2nd birthday.

Apologies for not commenting or stopping by your blog much lately.

I have been off sick from my day job since the 5th of December. Thankfully I seem to be much better but still taking tablets for some existing symptoms. I am hoping to go back to work soon.

When I am not resting, I am working very hard to get my non-fiction book finished for the 20th of January. I am self-publishing and my illustrator needs to know by the 20th, the total number of book pages, so she can create the printed book cover version for me. After the week commencing the 20th of January, she is moving on to do other projects.

Daisy had to have another operation today. This time it was to have a much bigger growth removed than the large one she had removed around the beginning of November last year. I am sending the growth off to be tested for cancer. My mum is currently looking after her with my other pigs because I will probably go back to work in my day job this week.

Tomorrow I am hoping to see my Doctor before I have to have a meeting with my Manager.

Because of my book deadline and everything else happing at the moment, I can’t blog or comment as much as I would normally. I hope you understand.

Thanks for your patience.

Cinnamon sends his wheeks!

May your new year be filled with daisies


Hi everyone

I hope your new year is filled with daisies. Then it will be sweet all year round.

Especially if it is of the furry variety.

A great Advent in my life


Hi everyone

Apologies for the pun on the word event but I just had to share my excitement with you.

For the first time since I was 19 years of age, I have an advent calendar and I am over the moon.

I have multiple allergies, including sugar and wheat.

I was on my way to get my guineapigs some hay and woodshavings, when I noticed a billboard poster outside the local health shop. It read that they had Sugar, wheat and gluten free advent calendars. I went into the shop, read the list of ingredients and was thrilled that it was a Plamil chocolate calendar. I have eaten Plamil sugar free chocolate before and it’s delicious.

I bought it and have been floating on air ever since.

An early Happy Christmas to you.

Thanks for all of your well wishes for Daisy, thankfully she is finally on the mend.

3 year Blogging Anniversary of quirkybooks.wordpress.com


Hi everyone

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.

Have a Snuggle with Snow


Hi everyone

Just a quick post to give you an update.

Unfortunately life is still very stressful for me at the moment and I am unable to blog as much as I would like to.

I went back to work on Monday this week. Cinnamon’s wound that was given the all clear a few days before, had become infected. I had to get anti-biotics from the vets after work and a solution to flush his cheek each day. I am still doing this.

Daisy had a big operation yesterday and had 3 or 4 lumps removed from her tummy and an implant put in. The lumps have been sent to the lab for testing. The problem is, she keeps trying to bite the stitches in her tummy and I have been on piggie watch since 8.30am this morning. I had to take her to the vets this afternoon, to be checked over and get her an anti-inflamatory medication. In the hope that she will stop biting herself. She is refusing to take it and so I have had to hold her mouth steady to ensure she takes it. I hate doing this but if she bites her stitches off, she will bleed. They made her a collar from a larger one but she thrashed her way out of it.

Good news – Snow and Snuggles are finally good together. Have a Snuggle on me.
