Stormy weather

I woke up this morning to the sound of the wind howling outside and the sight of our mutant giant pear tree swaying alarmingly in the onslaught. It was not long before the rain started, so I searched for son 2's waterproof jacket and put it by the door. He moved it and put his cotton summer jacket there. We were still arguing the toss when the school bus arrived, but in the end I let him have his own way, as the TV weather forecast had seemed much better for later in the day and so it has been. Some battles are just not worth fighting.

I haven't written any more over the weekend , although I have been doing some thinking and planning of possible scenes. Today I had to go to the dentist this morning and although I had every intention of writing after lunch, in the end the lure of coffee and gossip at a friend's house was just too much.

Three notable things:

1. No fillings needed at the dentist!

2. Son 2 got kicked when he managed to get himself in the way of a playground fight today. His teacher thought he might have a nasty bruise by the time he got home, but I can't see one. He's probably been lucky.

3. Hearing some interesting gossip this afternoon.

No fillings! And gossip - what a good day!

I found your blog through some fellow bloggers and wanted to let you know I'm enjoying it very much. Your recent posts about struggling with your writing progress really resonated with me because I've been having similar struggles.
Huzzah for no needed fillings!

Don't suppose you're likely to share the gossip!

Arnica cream for your son's bruise. Works wonders.

What a relief about no fillings needed.

An afternoon's chat with a friend - I'd choose that anytime.
