Stupidly busy

I could have quite happily stayed in bed for most of this week feeling sorry for myself and my poorly throat, but I had work to do. LOTS of work to do. So I dragged my sorry ass out of that bed and just got on with it.

Monday turned out to be another writing frenzy. I worked on a short story, a comedy sketch, a walks report and a reader’s letter, and over the course of the day I wrote a total of (drum roll please …) 5,891 words. Phew! That’s a lot considering I was also editing a novel. For me, at least.

I can’t remember what time I went back to bed, but it was probably close to midnight. Then yesterday I worked solidly all day. All. Day. Editing. And I finished at 1am.

This morning, with the dog keeping quiet all night and Holly asking to go out again at about 2am, I slept in. Domino usually wakes me up at about 5am, sometimes 4am, but this time she didn’t – or maybe she tried and I was comatose. Rufus usually finds something to bark at during the night, but this time he didn’t – or maybe he did …

Today is all about electronic stuff. Electronic edits, updating the gig list, catching up on online stuff … and, therefore, distractions. I’m due at a Ramblers’ meeting this evening, but just lately I’ve been working so hard I forget to check the clock and it’s been an empty belly that’s brought me back to the land of the living. So I may forget to go, or I may forget to stop and get ready to go. Oh yes, and eat.

I’ll see how today goes. It looks like a nice one, although we had a bit of a breeze overnight judging by the position of the outdoor kennel. Either that or Holly had a cat fight. The cats use the water barrel and the kennel as launch-pads for take-off and sometimes the kennel gets moved. It’s only plastic.

But first … yoga. I’ve not done any for 2 days. I also have to get to the post office before last collection, so that will be the dog walk. I may have to set an alarm …

    Hope you’ve remembered to breathe…or maybe you didn’t. Hope you find time to relax…or maybe you can’t. Hope you are feeling better…really.

      I forgot to eat, and I forgot to finish early enough to go to my meeting. I finished very late again.
