Ever had one of those weeks where you seem to be going round and round in circles and not quite achieving? I'm in one of those - except it's been more like a month. It started with a wonderful writers' weekend in Blenheim. Our wonderful cat, Barb Deleo was there, and Louisa George in mind if not in person. I love these weekends and wouldn't miss them for anything.
The following week I flew to Auckland with a girlfriend for catch up with two other friends over four days. Busy, busy, talk, talk, drink wine, eat great food, then two of the girls got sick. Just as well we missed seeing Louisa there too as I'd hate it if she'd caught the bug before leaving for NY.
Back home to find revisions on my latest book hovering in the in box. Yes, I still like to read a print out at this stage of my books.
The phone goes, it's family - 'We're coming to stay.'
That was Monday.
A great time had by all, then change the sheets and towels, ready for the next round.
On with the revisions and working on the next story.
Supplies are running low, and an appointment, which means a three hour drive to town and back, along with all the time spent there managing to spend a fair whack of dollars. Food for dinner tomorrow night when friends are coming round.
What happened to my walks this week? Today, I promise. Except those slippers look a darn sight more tempting than the walking shoes. Oh, and I might have to go back to town. I haven't even got these put away yet. Throw in that I haven't been sleeping for over a week and you get the picture. The head is full of fog today.
Guess that means packing our bags so that we can leave for the five hour drive the moment we're summoned. These two cuties are going on the journey with us for the new arrival.
Revisions? What revisions?
Do you ever have weeks where you feel you're chasing your tail? I'm sure everyone does. Tell me how you cope. I just go faster and faster until I implode - not a good look.
