Day 3… Miserable


I won’t stay long.

I am going to crack on, but I am just so tired. Please someone do my work for me?

Targets for today? Do as much as is physically possible.

Peace out.


P.S can I pull off that phrase?


The Escape Artist


Well today has been a slight slack if I am honest. Hardly any of my targets were hit, and I blame that thoroughly on the fact that the builders keep turning up, saying they are going to finally get the job done, and then promptly leave and leave me a note telling me that they will return at the weekend. Which means I have to be out of the house all day on Saturday. Excellent. Not.

However, I did get to see my wonderful friend Gigi, who I have not seen for a whole three weeks 🙂 I did have to deal with a very tired Jake. He didn’t much of his dinner, and I can promise you, it was amazing. I did a vegetable cous cous, with juicy, diced pork, cooked with apples and onions, and yummy spinach. Now you tell me, who on earth wouldn’t devour that?? He has about half his plate, so it wasn’t that he didn’t like it. He was just very tired. So, because I am such a witch of a mum, he went to bed with no pudding. There, judge away.

When I picked him up from nursery yesterday, they informed me that they have to be extra careful and create special measures to ensure that my son does not disappear. And there was me thinking I had managed to squash all personality traits of his father out of him. That will teach me. The thing with Jake is, he is curious. About everything and anything. He likes new things that mean he learns more, and going to explore. Which sounds good right? The problem is, he is pretty good at becoming practically invisible on his little jaunts, and thus causes all responsible adults within close vicinity to have major heart attacks. And have to create new ways of keeping him within sight, and entertained at all times.

Anyway, I am off to bed as I am once again beyond tired, and need to get up at the crack of dawn to crack on with this work. Did you like what I did there? With the crack? I am telling you now, I can be hilarious when I want to be… ask my friends.


Day 2…


I realise I was meant to write a post last night, but I sort of crashed. I did hit my targets yesterday which is good though 🙂 I just couldn’t carry on further, and then Made In Chelsea came on… my god that is an addictive program. I found myself shouting and cursing at my computer screen… there are a few characters that need a good slap.

Anyway, today the plan is this- I need to do at least 500 words of my personal essay, and then do some dissertation work too. Not very detailed information there but that’s the plan. I also have to go to lectures, presentations start this week, I can’t decide whether it is a good thing or not that I am doing mine in the final week… after I hand in my dissertation. I hate presentations, I am more worried about this than my dissertation. I am going to Sheffield the day I hand in my dissertation to see Mike as he does them all the time and hopefully he can help me….

Also, no Facebook is proving rather hard as there are a couple of people I need to get in touch with, but cannot… I am still being good though.

Right, time to crack the whip.


Day 1…


Well I can honestly say that I thought I would never have to set foot into the library ever again once I got broadband. However, thanks to my leaking house, here I am. I suppose I shall have to make the best of a terrible situation. And it really is terrible! The weather man promised me rain today, instead I can see blazing sunshine!! It isn’t fair 😦 anyway, silver lining right? Or light at the end of the tunnel? Not sure which fits best, but there we are.

The aim today is to get my Short Story essay done and out-of-the-way, or at least reach 3000 words. And I will then do some dissertation work tonight. The reason for doing it this way round is because I have about 20 books for my dissertation, and only six for Short Story, so do the maths 🙂

Jake was dropped off at nursery today, and I had to tell them his leaving date. I actually got a bit tearful (perhaps hormones…), because he has loved it there and they are such a great nursery. They have done so much for us, and have really helped me to help Jake flourish and do well in everything.

Right, best get cracking. Might get a cheeky drink first though… what’s the saying? About feeding your brain? Wouldn’t be amazing if wine increased brain power? Right, yep…. essay.




I also feel people should know I have given up carrying on watching House and Fringe. I gave them both up at really crucial points, so please pat my back 🙂 and if you don’t watch them you should, they are AMAZING!! Oh and also, I have it on good authority that The Editors are doing a gig in Birmingham (I think) on the 27th of April… if someone wants to buy me tickets… well I won’t say no.
