From the archives... "Nothing but blue sky from now on"

I usually post an archive post on a Sunday, but I took yesterday off the enjoy the blue sky with my family, I didn't even turn my computer on.

The archive post I was planning to share was this one from October 2017 that talks about getting out of my comfort zone, and - wouldn't you know it - that's exactly where I am now, again.

It's nearly the end of June (how?), six months through 2018 and I have to admit that this year is turning out to be a great one. Part of that is, I think, because I'm constantly looking to get out of my comfort zone. I set clear goals at the start of the year and I've looked for ways to stretch and challenge myself and - and this is a big one - I've not given up when things have been tough, which I would have done a bit too easily before.

I'm spending a big chunk of today planning for the next six months, so that 2018 can carry out being awesome.

What are your plans for the next six months? Leave a comment below.

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.
