I decided that as generally I don’y get much time on a Saturday to keep it simple. I have noticed a few people out there do a weekly round up as well as set a few goals for the upcoming week so in an attempt as some form of organisation I thought I would give it a go.
So as this is my first weekly post and I hadn’t really set any targets this week I can honestly say I met them all hehehe. That isn’t to say it hasnt been a productive week I have added 10,000 on my novel word count around 8.000 of whic I am happy with the rest will get fixed in the edit…I hope.
I have revamped my blog page I liked the other but the red background was proving problematic in using muliple colours in interviews so a change was needed. I also decided despite the fact I LOVE getting awards and all the other widgets it was getting a little crowded so now the awards have their own special page and once I get them all up there you can go to the post for each blog by clicking on the link. Please let me know what you think to the new blog theme i am not normally a pink person but I think as an antidote to they grey skies here it works quite well.
I am blogging quite late tonight as the other half is out normally Saturday after I get out of work is family time but tonight he is out for a couple of hours at a workmates birthday do so I get to spend extra time with you…you lucky people lol Actually he tried out a new hairdressers today usually I decided to go wait while he got his hair cut instead of mooching round the supermarket huge mistake. Not only did I probably embarass him ever so slightly by asking the stylist if she could transform him in to Brad Pitt and numerous other comments but I ended up window shopping. This is another slight quirk of mine I love oil paintings although I only own three at the minute as we dont have much space to hang them but in the hairdressers several acrylics on canvas were hung on the walls. At first I just thought they were decoration then I spotted it a price tag hanging down from one. As the other half paid for his new do (quite sexy actually but don’t tell him I said so) I slyly took a closer look and guess what pay day next week I think one may be finding a new home. The teenager is moving out in September and then we are redecorating it will go perfectly with what I have planned for the bedroom and only £60 bargain so fingers crossed everyone it is still there on Friday.
Next week hopefully I will be able to share a new picture with you.
Okay so targets for next week…
1) Finish the two books I am currently reading
2) Another 10,000 on to the novel word count
3) keep up on reading all your blogs am behind this week and have just under a hundred posts awaiting my persual so if you get likes or comments in a random order you know why
4) post at least one book review, one poem and one flash fiction during the next week as I try to balance the blog/book scales
5) buy that painting
That should keep me busy and possibly out of trouble
