Reasons to be cheerful - 12th July 2018

I seem to have been sooo busy since last Thursday, but here goes...
Last Saturday saw serious fun at the Maindee Festival, a free community arts festival. I was performing 2 poems and also MC-ing 30 minute set by my writing group in the Spoken Word tent. I didn't take any pictures, but you can check out my poems here.
Sunday was this one's birthday
I can't believe he's 19 now, so I have just one more year of having a teenaged son! True to form I managed to make him a cake without him realising, so I was ab;e to present him with this
on Sunday morning (made in a very fraught three-hour window when he was out of the house on Friday!
Monday was yoga

in 29.4-degree heat (yay), and I had a punt at taking a photo of myself doing the boat pose. As I suspected, it didn't really work!
And apart from all that I've just been writing and watering the garden. The crops have definitely suffered from this hot spell, but I am managing to harvest a bit and I've discovered I do quite like zoodles, which is a good job as I have a lot of courgettes

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.
