xander - hates life
I just dropped a picture frame of me and the boy into a beer! A lot of beer. It's probably safe to assume that I actually tipped a can of beer over said picture frame. Accidentally, obviously.

If anyone can advise me how to save the photo at least I will be eternally grateful (quietly, from afar, but still very, very grateful).

It's also messing up my keyboard :(
8th-Nov-2018 08:35 am - NaNo update.

Oh so far this is not going well.
1st-Nov-2018 09:14 am - It's that time of year again.
Kennedy - stopping me?
Time to get NaNoWriMo'ing. I think I've got at least... oh, 8000 words in me this year.

I have a rare, spare thirty minutes before I have to be anywhere and LouLouBean is sitting happily on the sofa watching some kid on the telly learn how to eat ice cream (or it might be mashed potato) with a spoon. This could keep her occupied for hours or just a minute so time to get writing.

I'm calling time on All Night Long. Nobody seems that interested in it and to be honest since about chapter 3 it's never been how I imagined it should be. Since I started it I've had a lot of life-changing events that have distracted me but I've just kept plodding on because I'd already begun. I can't do it anymore. Damned made me happy even when it was hard; this doesn't.

b/f - dancing
Camp NaNo begins on 1st April but with the Easter holidays taking up two weeks of it I'd be lucky to hit 1000 words so I've decided to do something different.

I have two fics finished but in need of some Serious tidying up and posting so I'm setting myself the challenge of posting 50000 words in a month instead of trying and no doubt dismally failing to write that many.

Obviously its not suitable for the official challenge so I'll be posting my progress here instead. Hence the first post I've made here in a million months.

Wish me luck 🙄

So I finally caved after two days and bought a new laptop . . . five months ago. It has taken me until now to find my bloody password. Anyway for anyone still reading, I'm back :)
thirteen - floored
I have a painful, painful shoulder. It's very hurty and sore and it's making everything, but most importantly, writing hard :( I'm trying though.

Also I have that Sarah McLachlan song in my head. The one from the end of Becoming Part II.

My brain isn't a happy place tonight.

13th-Jan-2017 10:48 am - Not so shabby.
kitten play piano
So first day went well and getting up wasn't a problem because I hardly slept all night anyway. I enjoyed it. It wasn't as tricky to pick up as I was expecting and I tell you it was a hell of a lot warmer in the store than out of it this morning!

I think my mum was watching over me too :) On my way in to work I heard the Prayer For The Day on Radio 4 and it was all about overcoming redundant fear and anxiety to live a happier, more successful life. The second sign was the robin hopping inquisitively about in the fizzy drink aisle. They were my mum's favourite bird and have always held a close association for me ever since she passed and seeing on in the store is definitely not a regular occurrence.

So if that was all down to you Mum; thanks, you helped :)
RH - bright side
I start a new job tomorrow. Same company, same department but a different role with a much earlier start-time, which is supposedly going to fit in with my life better now. It wasn't my decision and I'm not very happy about it, but I have been struggling at work for the past couple of months for a few reasons so I'm just constantly trying to convince myself it's for the best in the long run.

My new shift starts at 6am. I haven't started work at 6am for 12 years! I didn't even know people still did start work at 6am. As you can see I have a problem with the 6am. I am somewhat trained in this area now however, more so that I was 4 months ago because my daughter also thinks the day should always start sometime before 6am. So it won't be that bad, right?

Thinking positively isn't stopping me from bricking it about what happens after I wake up tomorrow though :(
11th-Jan-2017 02:59 am - What the . . .?
toby: drunk
Weird things just happened. I was writing away on the next HotSS episode, all going well, but I paused to go downstairs for a cigarette (yes I know they're bad for me, and I'm down to just a couple a day) and when I came back up I found this:

It took them over an hour to patrol Town Road because the houses were spaced far apart and at every gate the same argument arose. “Is it okay to just walk into this life. Or should I be more sensitive to my brother?"

It's the bit in speech marks that got me, because they really don't fit into the story! I know I'm tired, I'm always tired because I have a 15 week old baby! but that still feels way to pointed to be random. I just wish I knew what it was pointing at.

puppet angel - so cute
Liam wrote his first fanfiction!

I have never been so proud. It was for a school project, he had to do something, seriously pretty much anything - the list of options was a whole side of A4 - connected to the Funny Bones universe. He wrote a news report about the skeletons antics - including a reward of £10 000 000 for anyone with any information on their whereabouts. And then... AND THEN, he asked if he was allowed to write his OWN story about the skeletons.

"Allowed?" I said "Get back on my laptop right this minute. I'll bring you a snack and mop your sweaty brow as you painstakingly search for and stab out each letter!"

He wrote 155 words in the end and we're both thrilled to bits with it. I just hope his teacher likes it too.

make believe
A little girl on the news just said she wanted to be a hairdresser and a mermaid when she grows up and Li laughed and said, "That's just silly, she can't be a mermaid when she grows up."

I was halfway through agreeing with him and explaining that the girl was only little and didn't understand when he continued, "You can't grow up and be a mermaid, you have to be born a mermaid!"
