Ho hum

After a week of ease, today I was faced with a relative mountain of work. I don’t mind this necessary as I prefer to be busy. I work better, faster when I’m busy, and strangely I have more time to…

Of birthdays and broken cameras

This morning I continued to chip away at the spring cleaning and de-cluttering of my little house. I have waaaayy too much stuff in my little house, and so a clear out is in order, particularly if I am to…

The blank page in front of me

For three days now I have sat in front of the metaphorical blank page, pen poised over the last sentence. It’s not that I don’t know what comes next. I have a whole series of scenes planned ahead of me…

The seductive smell of woodsmoke

A day in the outdoors, up at Coombe Hill burning possibly carsiogenic fires within site of the Blairs country residence (WMDs anyone?). It was a good day of Slash’n’Burning, hacking back gorse bushes and burning in them three large bonfires….

I printed out The Work, as it is, to date yesterday, and it’s now sitting on my desk looking impressively like a novel. Already it is the half a reem of paper that my previous novels have been – and…

I picked up my copy of this week’s tv guide to see what is on tonight (Michael Wood’s In Search of Myths and Heroes since you ask). It had previously been left open on Sunday’s page… Current Mood: 😕curiousCurrent Music:…

High tech v. Low tech

Enthused with ideas and story plottings after my swimming last night, I had to, once more, stop at the café tables outside of the etched glass windows and note down my idea. As I pulled out my leather bound notebook,…

First taste of the elixia…

An empty coffee mug. A can of beer. A notepad of squared paper ciphered over with mathematical formulae. Hannah lies reclined on the sofa, snuggled in Ben’s arms, head on his lap. Ben sits, awake, stroking his fingers through Hannah’s…

H2O + Cl = Elixia of Dreams

It’s half term this week, and so it was blissfully quiet at the pool today – a flat calm at some time – and I swam my thirty lengths with ease. I could probably have done them in less than…

a pheasant for dinner

A rather splendid looking male pheasant strutted right out into the middle of the road on the way to work today. Big and bold, plump and tasty looking, it would have made a lovely meal, and he was asking to…

State of the Sheep (primary research)

As hinted at in my last post, on Saturday 12 February 2005, this journal celebrated it’s second birthday. I say celebrated, but actually, when it came to it, after all the best made plans, we both forgot. But anniversaries are…

Frustration of the Geek

Too many column inches…

So Charles and Camilla are too marry. Good. I’m happy for them. And if I can say it, it’s about time too. Can we please move on? There’s so many more important things that we need to discuss. I have…
