I love this card, I saw it at the Art show the other day.  I feel like I should be saying that, yes; I have been putting my feet up but I really haven’t.  I did have to babysit again today so that interferes with the writing as I do most in the afternoons.  So for the last two days I have written the huge amount of 455!  I know it’s not good, I am now behind about 4,000 words which I am trying to not think about as I was doing so well and bloody life just gets in the way.  Sometimes I just want to go somewhere and hide and write.  I know, its not practical but so tempting.  I do plan to spend tomorrow indoors on my own so with any luck the words will flow again.

It has been a funny old week as after the awful events of Friday night in Paris I have felt very upset and not focused on anything, I keep watching the news and that just makes you feel worse.  It is all a bit scary as it could all get out of hand so quickly and destroy our children’s and grandchildren’s future in the blink of an eye.  I am not sleeping very well and the gale force winds we are having are not helping with all the noise it makes, I keep getting up to see if there is any damage in the garden.  Luckily my ladder and plants are ok it is just my roses that have taken a tumble.

Words written 455

Total words for the month 26,001

    I’m betting that 18 year old is the first grandkid. My 25 year old “first” still wants to live with me. LOL

    Whatever else happens don’t put yourself under any pressure. It’s not vital you finish NaNoWriMo, it is vital that you get some sleep and stay well.
    This has been an exceptional month so far, the happenings in Paris are terrible and it’s very difficult to divorce yourself from the effects of it as it’s also difficult to function properly with the current weather conditions. At least I hope those are about to change though heaven only knows whats coming next.
    Babysitting is a major distraction that requires a lot of time and full attention. So, you’ve had a lot to put up with and no blame could attach itself to you if you don’t manage to finish this years competition.What’s important is that you’ll have tried.
    On the other hand you’re a very determined lady so I can see that you’ll be wanting to catch up again and finish. In that case I wish you very good luck but ask you to keep well and be careful of yourself.

    Very true, although I have an 18 year old in couple weeks and she’s always saying can I live with you Nan. Lol. I guess I should feel special xx

    It’s a cliché, but they are only little and in need of babysitting for such a short time. Enjoy! soon they will be teenagers and you will have to fight their friends for their company.
