This week I will mostly be... 15th - 21st April 2018

I've got a busy week this week, especially as the weather is actually looking pretty decent.

I'll be shortening a pair of curtains to hang in my dining room and then moving the ones that are currently in the dining room into my bedroom to replace a pair that hasn't quite fallen apart yet.

The fabric left over after the curtains are shortened will form part of another project that I've been thinking about for a long time, but more on that in another post.

Gardening! These are the courgettes I had to pot on at the weekend.

In other news, the peppers have FINALLY germinated, so hopefully, they'll come on strong now.

I'm also off to a garden centre this week so I will try not to spend every spare penny I have (we'll see).

Looking after myself. After my confession last week about not taking proper care of myself, I'm making a concerted effort to turn that around this week, with lots of delicious food and generally just being mindful of what I need.

And finally work, I'm planning to send one pitch to an editor every day this week. I might get five rejections, but I'm hoping some of the ideas will be commissioned, I'll let you know.

What are your plans for this week?

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.
