Reasons to be cheerful - 2nd March 2018

I've been away for a bit, but now I'm back.
Three weeks ago I got the flu that's been doing the rounds and really got knocked for six. On top of that, whilst I was feeling physically rubbish I completely hit a wall of "what am I even doing here?" My confidence in what I'm doing hit rock bottom and I just couldn't get going again once I felt better. And so, instead of just ploughing on for the sake of it, I decided to take a break and re-evaluate what I was doing.

I'm back now, feeling that I know where I'm going. I need to slow down and take my work more seriously so that I get to where I want to be. 
I know where I want to go and I know what I need to do to get there... So here I go.
I did get a fiction piece published, which was so exciting and made me feel a lot better.
I'm cheerful because instead of giving up, I've sat back, thought it through and then got back on the horse.


  1. That sounds great. Its good to take a break at times and be able to re-evaluate and see what the next step is. Mich x

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.
