The dreaded lurgy has been through our place. And for us that doesn’t just mean sloth-ing in front of the telly and a trail of tissues strewn from one end of the house to other. No, for us, a simple virus becomes a major ordeal as my daughter has Type 1 Diabetes and Virus = Blood Glucose Level Havoc. So, for the past two weeks I’ve been up nearly every night at midnight, 2 am, and 4 am, working to keep my girl’s BGL in ‘the safe zone’.
Needless to say, I’m pretty shattered right now, so I’m going to cheat on this blog post a bit. I read on someone else’s blog about the Triple 7 Challenge, and while I wasn’t ‘tagged’ to do it, I’m going to tag myself and steal the idea as it means a quick and easy post.
Good news (or maybe not), for you lot is …. More sharing!
The Triple 7 Challenge is this – Take 7 lines from the 7th page of your manuscript and share, and then tag 7 other bloggers to do the same.

I’m not going to tag others as such. But how about any writers reading this, do the Triple 7 Challenge for your next blog post. And any readers popping by, open up the 7th page of whatever you’re currently reading and share below in the comments your favourite line from the page.
