Of course the title of this post refers not to what I’ll be doing over this weekend, but to the weather here in Edinburgh today, which is looking rather stormy after a glowing start. It’s the kind of weather that makes me alternately glad to have a tall conifer sheltering the back of the house and panicky about the thought of it falling right through the conservatory roof one day. I can’t even leave the door open for the cats as I like to do, because it keeps blowing to and fro on its hinges.
After a working week filled with even more meetings than usual, I’ve decided to take next Monday and Tuesday off. I don’t want to go into NaNoWriMo completely shattered and stressed out: I’ll save that for the end of November. Because I had to eat sugary snacks throughout the day on Friday to keep myself awake, I have naturally received a random email from the 1 million women cancer study this morning asking me to fill in a diet questionnaire about what I ate! These emails only happen at times of maximum stress and never when I’ve only eaten fruit and lentils all day.
Tasks awaiting my attention this weekend include: assembling a new computer table which was delivered during the week; reviewing a special Hallowe’en short story I’ve written and deciding whether it’s fit to see the light of day or not; doing a final final proof-read of ‘Murder in the Midi’; attending the Edinburgh NaNo group kick-off party.
If I do decide to rush through the Hallowe’en short story, I will publish it on my Cecilia Peartree blog later today or tomorrow.
