A post in which I use the word 'excited' and 'exciting' a lot!

I have some exciting news.

A lovely friend of mine has started work as my book editor!

And, what is more, she is a sassy mama-of-four-doula-and-midwife-trained-already-published editor - could I have asked for a more perfect editor? I think not.

* Doing a little woop woop dance *

I sent out a call to the universe, and the universe responded!

Speaking with her yesterday, she told me that the day before I asked her to edit my book she had been on the phone to her mum, saying 'The thing I would really love right now would be to edit a birthing book'.

And ta-da! Here we are.

I am stupidly, ridiculously, totally excited.

Someone who can take my vision and truly make it flow on paper, and make it better than I could write myself.

And just when I thought things were starting to get a bit exciting around here, I volunteered myself today for a very exciting role working on the Doula Uk magazine, and they have written back saying I *might* be suitable for the role of producing it! Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god. So we'll wait and see what happens there.

And tommorow I may be a step towards being the proud new owner of a very cute silver beetle.

Oooh too much excitement!!!

I need to calm down!!!
