Ho-Hum

I only wrote the first couple of sentences of a chapter today. I'm finding it very difficult to get started again. The screen hurts my eyes. Yesterday  we did the first stock take at Crafty. I spent the day counting buttons. It all sounds very fun, but after the first five tubes or so my … Continue reading Ho-Hum

Disrupted Routine.

I am a creature of habit, or perhaps more accurately, habit and routine are important aspects of my recovery. The times in my life when my routine is disrupted, inevitably lead to heightened anxiety. That has not changed through my recovery. What has changed is the way I deal with that anxiety. I now know … Continue reading Disrupted Routine.

I’m back!

I've had a lovely, if utterly exhausting trip to see my husbands family in Wales. it's the biggest, most anxiety provoking thing I have attempted in over two years. I survived it. I also learned that a lot of family in Wales read my blog. Hi Guys. I will probably natter on about it a bit … Continue reading I’m back!

Nope, No Words

  The heady mix of pilates, therapy and steroids yesterday meant I was too exhausted, both physically and emotionally to write, or do much of anything else for that matter.

I just love a good spreadsheet, but you know what I love more than a spreadsheet? A Pie Chart! Today I embarked up the noble task of analysing my novel to within an inch 0f its creative life. I've always needed a good visual for me to understand something properly. The steady methodical charting of characters, settings … Continue reading All of the Charts!

Though the more experienced ladies there did put me to shame with their core strength. After crashing out a … Continue reading Boom! Wrote more of my novel today

The dentist could have gone better

As predicted, I spent most of the day, after  my dental check up, curled up on the sofa. Snuggled under two blankets and listening to a good audio book, Foxglove Summer by Ben Aaronovitch.  My Husband has been supplying me with regular cups of tea. It was only a couple of hours ago when I managed … Continue reading The dentist could have gone better

Sleepy

The days have been way too full recently. Story and Rhyme time this morning, afternoon at Crafty Sew & So, then Zumba in the evening. I only managed half of Zumba because my asthma acted up after half an hour. I did a very small amount of revising  a set of instructions at Crafty, but … Continue reading Sleepy
