The yellow lilies are now an incredible 12 days old. These pink ones, mere youngsters at just a week, are similarly gorgeous. I do love lilies.
I am procrastinating. I have a totally free day and thought last night that I would sit at the PC and force myself to write this damned epilogue. Well, I’m sitting here but that’s as far as it’s got. After a bit of a lie in, I stripped the bed, put on the washing, had breakfast and skimmed through the newspaper. After that I looked at a couple of blogs I follow and now I’m typing this. Oh hopeless me!
Just received a text from a friend who is trying to arrange a ladies’ light lunch for next week. I first typed ‘light ladies’ lunch’ but then realised that the ‘light’ would apply to the ladies and if that were so, then since I am not light (though I do have a great ability to ‘maintain’ at the weekly weigh-in), I would have to decline. Anyhow, I have, as requested, provided details of my availability, limited though it is. Shame the lunch wasn’t planned for today given that I’m free (and clearly not epilogue writing)!
Here’s where I am sitting, not at the precise moment I took the photograph obviously, but I’m here as I type. My office is a spare bedroom, not the tidiest room in the house, nor the most stylish but it’s a special place for me. It’s in this very spot that almost every word of my book has been written, and here that almost every word of my degree was achieved.
I need to do some ironing. I have some leggings that I want to shorten and there’s a card I want to make. I’d like to bake but there is currently enough cake to keep husband content for several days and the freezer can’t take another thing. There are a couple of things to check via online banking or I could investigate why the laptop which sits further along the long worktop that forms the desk is making an intermittent squeaking sound or I could stop this (see what I mean about procrastinating) and just get on with making a start with what I should really be doing. I’ll let you know how it goes.
UPDATE – two hours later. First draft done! The editing, honing and rewriting will take longer but at least I now have something to work on.
