This week I will be mostly - 8th January 2018


Returning to work

I made the decision to take two weeks off over Christmas as what a brilliant plan that turned out to be.

I didn't not work, in fact, I did a fair bit of reading and writing and planning, but I dipped in and out when I fancied and didn't worry about not being on social media - I didn't even schedule anything apart from a couple of blog posts.

Yesterday I spent a lovely afternoon in the company of a great group of women as we had lunch and a museum trip to celebrate the birthday of one of our number.

And today, I woke up excited about getting back to my desk and writing.

And I am excited, I'm excited to be my own boss again, and to be doing what I really love and to have a clear plan of where I want to go this year.

I feel energised by the fact that I put work firmly on the back burner for a couple of weeks and spent time with my family.

This week is all about setting the work plans I've made in motion, so I'm going to be a busy little bee!

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.
