I can hear you all wondering what I am going to be talking about and I think we probably do talk about it a lot as to some degree it shapes our day. Yes, it is the weather and apart from the very unusual aspects of it I guess it is very boring. It is worse when it’s cold as you don’t really do anything unless you like snow, ice, wind, rain etc etc but I do not, sometimes I think I may have that SAD condition I should get myself a special light and sit in front of it.
Today I have stayed in bed to write as it is the warmest place and if I get a bit cold I just put the electric blanket on and I am all toasty again. Of course I would rather be outside sitting in the sunshine writing but as usual it is raining, cold and overcast, never two days the same so cannot plan anything. Oh dear! I am moaning again, maybe I should jet off to some sunshine to fill my body with heat ooooo now I’m thinking of sea, cocktails and laying on the beach.
My daughter went camping at the weekend and I popped in to see them Saturday evening and stayed for dinner, yes, dinner. No barbecue burnt offerings here, she has an open air fire and slow cooker and Jodie made lasagna and hot bread! Amazing I can hear you all say and it was delicious. I was pleased to come home and warm up though. Lovely new tent that is a bit like a tardiss as it is so big inside with two separate bedrooms.
When I saw my friend Angela last week for coffee we said that we would try and each write at least 200 words a day as we were both having too many days of not writing anything and telling ourselves that we were planning! I really was, honest. Well today I have been very good and written just over a 1,000 so have finished the short story now so it’s time to read and edit, it’s so boring editing as you know the story and I still miss things no matter how many times I read it.
Have a good week everyone x
