BLOGGING BREAK , ETV and purchasing your copy of MAXDOG ...

MAXMOM here...
Dear friends,
'Twas a quiet, relaxing weekend - just what I needed! Even the dogs took the opportunity simply to 'be':

I think I am ready for tomorrow - it's gonna be a big day for me:
Firstly, I'll have to be up at the crack of dawn to be at the television studio at 07h00.  If you are in South Africa, please join me and tune in to "ETV" on their sunrise show at 07h34 to watch a live interview between Sindy Mabe and myself.  I'll be chatting about my recently published book, MAXDOG.

Once the interview is over, I am sure that I'll go and have a 'cuppa' with my friend Lorraine and get to meet her new guide-dog puppy "Themba".  (Welcome little "Themba"!) Later in the morning, I'm off to the airport to grab an aeroplane and fly down to Kwazulu-Natal to join my family at the seaside.  (I've never flown on my own before)  I can't wait to be with them. I've missed them terribly in the past 3 days.

At this point, my butterflies are flying in formation, but I am sure as tomorrow draws closer, I will begin to feel a lot more anxious.  Surprisingly though, I am looking forward to meeting Sindy and to the whole experience (also a new one, I might add) of live television.

After feeling really unsettled on Saturday evening, I received the perfect sms from my sweet husband:

It read:
"Live Life to the Max...for Max!"

The perfect message at the perfect moment!
Thank you, 'Mike'  :) 

So folks, I am not sure if I'll have another opportunity to blog for a while.  I will most probably be 'out-of-office' for the rest of the week (at least).  In the meantime, you will be able to read updates about MAXDOG on Facebook or you can watch the Twitter feed on the RHS toolbar of this blog. 

Let me also take the opportunity of wishing you all a fabulous week.  Thank you again for your love and support during this exciting adventure with

I'm so glad you had the weekend to relax, you deserve and needed it I'm sure!
You are going to be fine. I'm praying for you. Just watch, you won't be alone. God will provide someone sitting next to you or near you on the plane and you will have a great trip.

Hi Maxmom, we're really happy for you. The television interview will go well. Take lots of deep breaths and then you'll be fine. My dad clicked on the read more link and it gave him a "Not Found Error 404" message. Please let us know when the print on demand option will be available. Oh yes, my dad said not to eat the food on the airplane :(
