I've failed at the 'being a better blogger' already, right?

What have I been up to?

I have been writing. I've done 10,000 odd words of novel and 1,500 odd of non fiction book. 

I've had some migraines; raced about Bangkok looking for pink computer covers for Daughter (it had to be pink; HOW many malls? I found it at Fortune.) I've tried to have a life too. I've attended book club and a coffee morning so that I remember how to socialise and today I've been back to Wood Street with my friend K. She needed some furniture and I needed wanted some letters. Daughter and I wasted quite some time making anagrams with my new letters.

Now if you'll excuse me I've 500 words left to do today.

Here are my wooden letters:

Migraines *shudder*, so painful and such a waste of time. I hope they leave you alone for a good long while now. But, my goodness, haven't you been working hard. Well done on getting so much writing done... I must take a leaf out of your book instead of faffing about.

Chris, thank you. I'm still feeling it today but they have to go at some point, don't they? I'm back onto my non-fiction idea at the moment and thoroughly enjoying it.

Now, go on, get back to writing.

I hope you didn't meet a Weird Teak Mare on your Dime Aware Trek to the Wearied Market ;-)

I think I've joined your club of not-blogging-quite-a-lot. Meanwhile - O Wood Street! How I adore you. That's the post I came in on, discovering your blog - and I still think that dragon would look brilliant on my wall. xx PS migraine stole two years of my life in the late seventies. Yuck. My deepest sympathy....
