(“Bostin” rhymes with “lost in” – a mate of mine here thought it rhymed with “roast in” – and I drop the “g” off the end. It’s a Brummie thing.)
I had such great plans for the weekend by the end of Friday. I was going to do loads of chores, including a big batch of baking because I want to try making my own pizzas. But I ended up working on Saturday. This is unusual because I take the weekend off to do all the things I don’t get around to in the week, like housework.
When I woke up I was raring to go, just not in the kitchen – although I did put some washing through, I did keep on top of the dishes, and I did scrub the yard. I also took the dog for a trot and I did the weekly shop.
By teatime I’d also written 2 first drafts and 2 outlines, and before I settled down for the evening I thought I’d rattle off another first draft and 2 second drafts. All articles, short or fillers. I didn’t get onto any third drafts because the third draft is the first typed one, and I couldn’t be bothered to boot the laptop up in the time I had left.
I felt really good by the end of the day, though. I felt as though I’d achieved something tangible at last – although this is what happens when I plan, plan and more plan. At some point it’s ready to burst and when I’m on a roll …
Sunday was tied up all day with a run down to see Mom and Dad, after I hung some washing out and another dog walk. That’s a 212 mile round trip. The road trip, not the walk … 😮
I think Rufus has a loose tooth and he doesn’t know what to do with it. His teeth are brilliantly white at the moment. I’d love for him to keep them that way.
Today I have 2 assignments to do, I have an hour or 1,000 words (ish) to spend on Catch the Rainbow, even if that’s just staring at the page or adding 1 or 2 words, and I’ll do some more article/filler work as I feel like it/can fit it in. I need these articles out there now, earning their keep.
