This week I will mostly be... 22nd - 28th April 2018

This week I'll be catching up with some writing because the weather last week was just too good to miss being outside. I got loads of gardening done which was great, but now I need a few days at my desk to send out some pitches and do some research to develop other ideas.

I'm taking a bit of time out to get my hair cut, I've been growing it for a while and because it's thick and curly I need regular cuts to keep it in shape.

I didn't shorten the curtains last week. Again, the weather was too good to miss, so shortening the curtains I'm going to put in my dining room got put on the back burner. Hopefully, I'll get them done in the next couple of days and then I can do the 'great curtain switch around', as I take curtains down in my dining room to hang the shortened ones, then move the current dining room curtains to my bedroom (where the current curtains are the same colour, but a bit too heavy).

And finally, I need to write a fiction story for my writing group on Saturday. I already have the idea, I just haven't taken it any further yet. I suspect that what I'll be reading on Saturday will be a first draft unless I manage to write it today and then edit it later in the week.

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.
