Holiday Progress

So far on my holiday I have managed to get up early every day and get writing early. I have surprised myself and have actually managed to write every day and complete the schedule that I have set up for each day of my holiday. In addition, which is even more surprising, I have also left the house every day so far, for at least an hour. Normally I would spend the entire time reading or writing and probably only set foot outside of the house maybe twice during the course of a week’s holiday, mostly to get groceries.

I went into Ely this morning to pick up a copy of Raven Girl by Audrey Niffenegger. I will be seeing her speak tomorrow night and need to prepare. I neglected to pick up a copy when I collected the ticket and so had to make a special journey this morning, early, so as to avoid people as much as possible. I got the price of the ticket for the talk discounted from the cost of the book which was nice. I just need to read it before tomorrow evening now. I have just finished ‘Her Fearful Symmetry’ so I should then be primed for the talk, having read everything of hers that I want to.

So far the holiday is going well. I have got plenty of writing done, some reading and now I am having to do a few chores such as mow the lawn. Still, I suppose they have to be done some time. I would rather be reading though. I should really get myself a t-shirt that says ‘I would rather be Reading’ on it. I wonder if they are available. Anyone seen one? I could get one printed if not.

I will update you on the Niffenegger talk before the end of the week hopefully. I am looking forward to it immensely.

Now I am off to finish, well start really, the chores. I suppose mowing the lawn in the sun won’t be all bad.

    • Hopefully I have finished my work in the garden now. At least my back has decided it’s finished! Keeping motivated whilst doing work of that sort is tough, thinking of me will only distract you, you know that 😉 Perhaps we could get matching t-shirts


      • My t-shirt must have sarcasm “Be quiet I’m trying to read?”

        My flowers are all planted now but I still need to edge the yard with the weed eater and finish the vegetables. Blech.


      • Absolutely, sarcasm is a must! I want sarcasm on mine too, and maybe some expletives – ‘Hey, F**k off, can’t you see I am reading’ or something like that 🙂 or do you think that is too much?

        Glad your flowers are in. Good luck with the rest. Don’t work too hard.

        I was quite lucky. My father visited and cut my lawn and chopped down the brambles. All I had to do was take some rubbish to the tip.


      • Lucky indeed. I am jealous now. I had to do it all myself. Definitely some expletives. We could use a fill in the blank format. **** you I’m trying to gains some &*^%$(# Knowledge here you *&^%


      • I like it, but do you think the sort of people that it will be directed at will have sufficient mental faculty to actually fill in the blanks appropriately, or be able to even make a cogent sentence. Maybe I am being a little too harsh on them 🙂
