I'm a bit behind in the cumulation of my daily goal of 2.5 pages a day minimum (although, in making up for not writing at all for four days I did manage to crank out 9 pages yesterday as well as doing some longhand afterwards (while watching the Dark Knight which my DVD player didn't want to let me see the last 10 minutes of ::grrrr::), so it's not all bad.)

I went swimming despite the cough that will not go away and I also did a load of laundry and swept the upstairs carpet, so I'm feeling productive in one sense, anyway!

I'm looking forward to properly light mornings, though. I can't quite get into the joy of getting up when it's pitch black outside and wazzing it down with rain. It just makes me want to curl up under the covers for another couple of hours - even the dogs don't want to get up when it's like that.

Anyway, past time for day jobbery. Onwards and upwards.


  1. You too on the dark mornings, huh? I don't wake up till it gets light, typically - by which time half the day seems to have vanished up its own backside. :D

  2. I know, it's awful. Throw in grotty weather and I just want to dive under the covers and take an extra couple of hours in bed. No such luck. ::sigh::

  3. At least you haven't fallen below zero in the weather yet. I would trade you a drizzly day for one of our freezing days. :)

  4. Snow is (allegedly) on its way. Sunday and Monday, or so they say, which will be inconvenient for swimming and work, but the dogs will love running out in it!

  5. And the forecasters were right... she says from the middle of a snowdrift. :P
