I’m British, that means I’m genetically disposed to discuss the weather…apparently!
Anyway, here I am in southern England, the sun’s shining timidly and it’s a lovely spring day MEANWHILE my sister has woken up in Canada to a dusting of snow. I know where I’d rather be.
I think I’d:
b. retreat to the duvet
c. both of the above, whilst eating a ton of chocolate
if I woke up to snow on the 11th May…it’s nearly the longest day of the year…there shouldn’t be snowflakes with the cornflakes!
Anyway, I’ve had a fab editing my latest book day.
I’ve also decided what my next book will be about and I might just go for a springy stroll later unlike my sister who’ll be snowgliding to work. LOL.
Have a fab day, whatever the weather.
Well, I’m not a fan of politics (read: normally would rather pull my eyelashes out one by one) but this General Election in the U.K. has been a bit of an eye opener.
The “experts” thought that Cameron vs. Miliband would be a close run race and that a coalition government was almost a certainty.
Experts scmexperts! Cameron’s in for another term and the other leaders have resigned SO whatever people wanted from their vote the political landscape will inevitably change with new bods running three of the main parties. BUT the way I see it, if you don’t vote you can’t really spend the next five years of the whoever-it-is government moaning about them…you should have voted.
It’s the V.E. Day celebration/commemoration this weekend. War is such a waste of life and what might have been, we should never forget the sacrifices made so that we can have such freedom today.
Let’s hope that there’s never another war…yes, a gargantuan miracle.
I was inspired to write this tanka earlier…
A showstopping farce, it pales
At a cenotaph
Comrades of seventy years
Real heroes, victors to hail
Meanwhile, back at my desk, I’m still editing Byron and Lady Caroline Lamb and I aim to finish reading a book about Queen Mary this weekend and then I will pootle over to a fiction book, probably a detective story set at the turn of the century. That is unless another tempting book lures me away!
My therapist saw me for the first time in 3 months yesterday (she was in Asia) and she seems happy enough…after the well done’s the inevitable “what next?” followed. As if I didn’t know it was coming ha ha so I have set several “overcome the O.C.D.” goals this month…
“Look out OCD gremlins…I’m coming to get yaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!”
