Yip, winter is here, and I have the dreaded lurgy. I hate being sick, and I have to be the worlds most awkward and worst patient. I don’t like sitting still – even when I am writing I fidget – and I just want to do the normal chores I have every day to do, but if I do, I end up having a coughing fit, getting light headed and wanting to pass out. Not a good look if you are home alone!
I had hoped that I would get the opportunity yesterday (being Saturday as I forward write my blog posts), to write some on my taniwha story – but no. I got up, had a shower, felt great, made breakfast, felt OK, made some chicken soup, hang some washing up, did my hubby’s PAYE and then decided that I could handle much more. I grabbed my Kindle and commenced reading while my computer downloaded a couple of movies.
I ended up spending the day watching Stupid Crazy Love, The Book of Eli and American Hustle. Lets just say that Stupid Crazy Love was good, Book of Eli had a curve ball that you didn’t see until the very end and American Hustle was long, but didn’t have a very good hustle at the end. (Give me the UK version any day where the ending is so complex you laugh because it was so obvious!)
So here I am, on Sunday feeling crappy still, but I need to start doing some writing. So, what better place to start, than a blog post!
This week is a fairly hectic one for me, as most weeks are, and with being sick, that doesn’t help. Being sick also has the down side of affecting my moods, and I get desperately cuddly and affectionate, but not for long periods of time (remember fidgety above?).
I need to get my A into gear and start scheduling time to write, read my course material for Mauri Ora and Proofreading and Copyediting course, otherwise nothing is going to get finished. Right now, I do feel like I am in over my head, but I know I am not. I just need to put my Kindle Fire down (sob – do I have to?) and do course reading at night.
So how is everyone else’s schedules going? According to plan? Or is there a spanner in your works too?
