Well it is the week of St Valentine’s Day?
Hope you had a warm day, in your heart if not in reality. Don’t know about where you were, but it was freezing here.
Anyway, the theme of my week does seem to have been love. Not all heats and flowers, of course, but love all the same. Though in all honesty, there was a bit of the hearts and flowers. Not only was it the week of St V’s, it was also the week of my husband’s birthday, but it’s only today that his present arrived. Better late than never.
I’ve loving the way my life is at the moment. Despite the fact that I’m changing jobs when the month changes I’m still enjoying the work-life balance that I’ve found since I was made redundant last year. Before work, the nine to five kind not the scribbling kind, used to intrude on my time off. That happens now if I have a particular deadline is looming, but so far it’s been four evenings in five and a half months. Other than that, I’ve been getting back to writing which brings me back to my theme.
There is more romance in my writing this week. One of my resolutions this year to to write another romance, and I’ve been working on that this week. Got a good few scenes down on paper and thought up a couple more, it’s really going well.
One other item on the theme is that, strange and sad as I can be, I enjoy cross stitch and have been working on a large panel piece. Truth be told I’ve been working on it for about four years and I’m only about a quarter of the way through it, but mostly because other things have been getting in the way. But given the work life balance thing, I’ve been giving one hour a day to it and I’m seeing some real progress on it.
It’s a difference I’m comfortable with, it’s the annoying advise that I used to get when I was a kid. A little and often. Keeps the mind alive and active.
Well, got scenes to write, so bye for now.
