I hope your Friday has been as lovely as mine has been so far. It is extremely sunny here in Scotland and I was asked for a coffee by two separate neighbors 🙂 . I first caught up with Suzie, whom I haven’t seen in a while, and then with Murdo, whom I haven’t seen in even a longer while. It’s amazing how time flies when you’re having fun. It was good to catch up and I particularly enjoyed Murdo’s garden as it is in full bloom at the moment.
I’m on a high now, but I haven’t been every day last week. As I had people around me on Saturday when we visited Granite City Comic Con and on Monday and Tuesday when I took my kids to a UK Mathematics Trust event, I crashed on Wednesday. I don’t do socializing very well. Don’t get me wrong, I love it! But I crash and burn afterward.
I couldn’t get myself out of bed and couldn’t think of one positive thought. I did manage to get some editing done and that made me feel a bit better about myself. I went to the gym yesterday and the fact that the dumbells didn’t feel as heavy as the time before made me feel better again. Long live exercise 😀 . Some people say you should be able to write anything on a blog, but I disagree. Who would want to know what I grumpy cow I can be? So sorry for not blogging earlier this week.
Tomorrow we’re having a structural engineer visiting. Hopefully, he’ll be able to give us advice on how to get our drive and garage happening. At the moment it’s a weed area that becomes swampy when it rains. The beech hedge flanking it on the high side of the slope is protected, but the wall it was resting on has disintegrated. On the other side, the ground slopes away to a row of trees. We need enough space to be able to turn the cars around, so it’s going to be interesting how he’s going to solve it.
Still working on my edit. Slowly but surely I will come to the end. I am learning a tremendous amount again. So many words are different in American English. I’m glad I’m getting the hang of tenses now. I still need to write that next grammar article for OneStopFiction.com, but I’m not sure about what. Anybody got any ideas?
I’m afraid not all the memes this week are as positive as last week, but as they’re memes they’re still funny 😀 . I love the pink unicorn. It was to celebrate my friend finding out how to make memes!
