Reasons I haven’t posted in the last few days:-
- A tragic event involving an aerial canine stunt, a loaded whisky glass and my keyboard.
Blame has been duly attributed to my Stepfather In Law, Agent of Death. It may have been my keyboard, but the whisky was under his supervision at the time. So, allegedly, was his dog. Looking on the bright side, there were no fatalities.
The morning after the incident, the q, a, z, w, s, x, e, d, r, f and spacebar keys did not respond.
Unlike my Compaq Evo, which once copped about three times as much pineapple juice, Husband’s attempts to wipe off the whisky with a squeegee were unsuccessful. Luckily, Husband had a spare keyboard and mouse in his wallet, so that I could continue . . .
- Finishing the second draft of ‘About Time’.
My editor has been ridiculously patient, but I set myself a deadline to complete it by last Thursday. Since my first two deadlines were not wholly successful, I was determined to hit this one.
I emailed the manuscript at 11:40pm after working on it all day (plus most of the previous year).
Three seconds later, I received an out of office notifier from my editor. Bum!
But at least I had it finished before setting off on . . .
- The road trip home with Husband, Dog, and a large MIG welder.
