It's one of those weeks, I'm waiting for people to get back to me about various projects and until I get responses I can't really move on, because without the answers I can't plan what to do or where to go next.

Just one answer would be helpful, two would be great, three would be fab, and if all four actually came in that would be awesome.

Like with so many things in life though, I've become part of a chain, some of the answers I need are dependent on other people feeding information to the people I'm waiting on to get back to me.

And so I'm (im)patiently waiting for the phone to ring or my email to ping to give me the answers I need so I can plan my next steps.

I am not one of life's natural waiters. If I have an idea or a job to do I want to action it then and there because I'm a 'doer'. The realistic bit of my brain knows that other people have priorities and targets different to my own, so I need to wait for me to reach the top of their pile, but that doesn't stop me being super-restless.

Luckily I do have some projects on the go that don't require input from anyone else before I take the next steps, so I'm not completely stuck for things to be working on.

What are you waiting for that's stopping you from moving forward?

Reasons to be cheerful - 5th October 2017

It's a quickie this week... I'm still loving my job and really glad that I made the move. I submitted two commissioned articles to editors and they were happy. I'm off on a trip, a couple of nights away (more on that next week). Hope you've had a great week too.

Reasons to be cheerful - 7th December 2017

1) After a day of sawing, drilling, cutting, etc, etc, and then a new bit in the boiler...We have gas! Yes, our heating, hot water and cooker are now working - the gas is fixed! SO happy after 12 days without it.

2) This morning Boyzilla was greeted by a dead RAT outside the sitting room. Whilst yucky (but not as yucky as if I'd had to clean it up), it makes me hugely proud that my cats are, well, cats.

3) The two planning tools I ordered for 2018 to help me move forward with my plans to do more writing have arrived and I'm looking forward to spending big chunks of the next four days exploring them and planning for a fantabulous year.
