PERSONAL UPDATE: What I’ve been up to (and why I haven’t been posting much)

LUSCIOUS LIVING: Pink peonies

 

Hi Luscious Lifers,

A little note to let you know that my book writing has been coming along pretty well since I’ve been having a bit of a hiatus from everything else.

I’ve mostly set aside the crime novel (about 100,000 words written) which I’m keen on but find psychologically taxing (death and all!) in favour of the attempt-at-humour novel which is much easier to write and is currently at 53,000 words.

This novel started out as something to amuse my friends, based on posts on my personal Facebook page. But it has fictional characters instead of real ones because I can’t stand the potential angst from friends or family thinking they see themselves in it. Relationships are hard enough without someone you like taking offence!

I’m having fun with my writing, most of the time. I’ve found that the only way to be productive has been to block out pretty much every other thing that used to distract me, so my time largely consists of being a hermit and playing tennis. (My tennis, I’m relieved to say, is starting to improve at long, long last.) I could not be more grateful to Mr Luscious for helping me to escape the rat race of my former corporate life to spend my days being creative.

Mr Luscious and I are terrific, by the way, although he’s very busy with his own work, and I’ve shared some moments on Instagram for anyone who is interested, and the occasional link or photo gallery on Facebook (even though FB is horrible for not sharing posts, grrr).

Sorry to those of you who think I’ve fallen off the planet.

I’m here, I’m happy, and I’m writing.

Natasha xx

LUSCIOUS TRAVEL: How we travelled first class for free (plus taxes) on our honeymoon using points

How to collect enough miles to fly for free

 

In March 2016, Mr Luscious and I finally made things official with our little registry wedding

And in April, we set off for a much-longed-for, 4-week honeymoon to Dubai, France, Switzerland and Italy, travelling from/to Australia in first class using points.

You can see all the photos via @myLusciousLife on Instagram, including some photos from our first class travel experience (including the Emirates first class shower!) by searching for #ALusciousWedding and #ALusciousHoneymoon.

Here’s how we saved points towards our honeymoon, and for our next luscious adventure…

A (mini) LUSCIOUS HONEYMOON: Bendigo, Victoria

 

 

The morning after our small registry wedding in March 2016 (see some photos via Facebook), Mr Luscious and I headed off for a mini honeymoon in beautiful Bendigo, as our proper honeymoon was to come a bit later.

We were seeking a country escape of food, wine and culture. Here’s the low down of what we did and where we stayed…

We’ve been having some trickiness with the Luscious blog not working, so my apologies to everyone who has come to visit and received the dreaded “403” error page instead!

Fingers crossed it’s now resolved.

PERSONAL UPDATE: A writer’s life in the countryside

LUSCIOUS LIVING: A writer's life in the country

 

Luscious Lifers, new posts are once again largely on hold as I finally, finally, finally try to get back to focussing on writing my books after many months of upheaval re: our house move (back) to Red Hill, and some other personal bits and pieces.

Fortunately, it’s the first day of Spring here on the Mornington Peninsula, so hopefully the sunnier days and blossoming gardens will help get me back on track too. If you’d like to see some snippets from the new house, do scroll through my Instagram pix.

Most days, I’m doing some cooking (expanding my low carb, ketogenic diet options), taking Mabel for a walk or game in the surrounding countryside, learning French and playing tennis. After years of corporate work, it’s absolute bliss to have this freedom, and I can’t thank Mr Luscious enough for supporting my creative endeavours. I am so very lucky and very happy.

I’ve now got five books on the go, at various stages of completion, including a literary murder mystery, a French travel guide, and an attempt at humour. Slowly but surely, I hope they will all find their way to those of you who are interested.

If you’re craving something luscious to inspire you whilst I potter around behind the scenes, please consider going back to the archives on the blog via the Photo Galleries tab, or browse through the myriad boards on Pinterest. For something new, remember to check out Facebook and Instagram where it’s easier for me to post more regularly.

Thank you for all your ongoing support of my little Luscious venture!

Natasha xx

LUSCIOUS NEWS: Technical update

Hi Luscious Lifers,

Unfortunately we’re experiencing some technical issues so some of the Luscious site won’t be working properly for you, including the Luscious Shop. It is very, very annoying and copious amounts of coffee and chocolate may be consumed in the process.

Thanks for your patience!

Natasha xx
