Cats and Computers and Pink Hearts
Me too - because I do all the writing exercises I set people to show that they work - or try them out to make sure they work. So I came back with pages of notes and ideas for the next book, made while I was sitting waiting for anyone who needed help to seek me out.
There was wonderful food, wine, and company. So thank you so much to Lois from Relax and Write (the focus is in the name) for all her organisation and efficiency, and to Jo, Claire, Marie, Linda, Penny, Sallyann, Melissa, Emma for being in my group. I hope I'll see you again soon.
I know some of these students have signed up for the next course - The Practicalities of writing - so I'll see you then. Meanwhile, we're planning courses for next year - March first. . . then others
. Watch this space.
I'm lucky to be back blogging here as when I got home it was to find that Charlie the Maine Coon had ripped open his neck and had had to have stitches and now needs to wear a plastic collar/cone/to protect his wound. Luckily The Offspring and his lovely fiancée were on hand to make sure he got to the vets.
Then I switched on my computer - or, tried to - nothing! It was dead! Totally . Several expensive days later - new computer, the work of the computer technician to save as much as he could - I'm back up and running. But I'm still finding things have gone missing - including my whole address book. So if you were expecting an email from me and haven't heard - that's why.
So it's a good thing that I was prepared ahead of things and I wrote a blog for the Pink Hearts Society before I went to Leeds. Because today is the day for my Date With Kate over on the PHS today. It's Time Out Thursday so I'm talking about what I do to relax - with talk of some of the wonderful theatre treats I've enjoyed recently..
