That’s all I need, a bit of a throat. But it’s also turned into a bit of a neck too. I hope my glands aren’t swollen.
I didn’t go to SYNED yesterday evening (boo!) as I had work to do (hurrah!), and my Brucie bonus for this week is our local meeting isn’t on Wednesday either. I thought this Wednesday was the 3rd one of the month, but I was looking at Thursdays … I do still have to be at the job centre again this afternoon, though.
The wind didn’t drop all day, in fact it got stronger, blowing the cat kennel around the yard. (Good job Rufus is happy back indoors again.) So I didn’t hang any washing out. Maybe today. I caught up with some BCJ work, did the diary for this week (it’s pencilled in a month in advance, but I like to finalise and confirm it every week, so I know I’m busy), and did some more proof-reading.
Relatively good news that came in yesterday was that my book proposal, the National Service one, has been passed to a commissioning editor. My own editor likes it and thinks it “sounds promising”, so there’s another hurdle cleared. I did feel a bit giddy for a while at the thought, I will admit. I was delighted that my own editor liked it enough to pass it along.
Last night I said “bedtime” to the animals, and they all raced upstairs. Well, Holly and Domino bounced up the stairs, Rufus “raced” as fast as his new-found skill let him. It was really quite sweet and amusing.
