A bit naughty

I'm not going to apologise for not being around for ages because it sounds insincere when I say it all the time. I am though.
i have been busy writing non fiction with a bit of success which is good for the morale and the pocket. However, do you know what? I have done something very naughty. No - calm down its nothing like that - I've decided to give myself the day off - or at least the morning. Usually on my day off during the past few weeks I have written an article or researched one but today I just can't seem to concentrate so I have decided that I'm taking some time off. I'm not sure if I'll manage a full day because like I said previously this non fiction lark is a bit of an addiction at the moment but I'm definitly having the morning.
I am going to make a cake, some curried parsnip soup (for lunch after I've walked the dog) and try to find a trashy Christmas movie to watch which I may well sleep through.
Sounds like a plan to me.
Oh and while I'm doing it I will be keeping my fingers crossed that these dinner plate sized snow flakes that are falling from the sky don't decide to stick because I was hoping to travel south on Sunday to deliver Christmas presents.
Oh and by the way - I had a rejected story returned through th epost the other day - ya boo hiss!

Hugs for the R, but it sounds like the non-fiction's really taking off, so well done.

Well done on the non-fiction front, Colette. I think a day off sounds lovely and probably just what the doctor ordered after all this hard work.

Curried parsnip soup. Ummmm! Sounds yummy. Enjoy.

Sorry about the rejection but it sounds like the non-fiction's going well :o)

Hope you enjoyed your morning off - make sure you do it regularly!

Good luck with your nonfiction. I have one in the pipeline too. I'm sorry to hear about your short story too, but you know how it is and what to do next after you've had a good shout and cry.

I hope you and yours have a great Christmas.

Best wishes,
J

Karen - I did enjoy my morning off and I'm going to give myself a few hours off tomorrow. Can't really afford a full day/morning because I'm trying to get ahead for next week.
Jamara - Thanks and good luck with your nf.
FP - forgotten that rejection already.
Lily - I also hate those R's - they suck.
