~So here I am...

Wow it's been busy lately. 'Strom related news is long winded and dull to most of you on this here f-list so I won't dwell. Needless to say it was a really good event and I learnt a lot about my character (again). Including the fact that more of her short-tempered war cat heritage runs in her veins than first thought. Yay for character progression. Met some ace people, had much laughs. Also lots of compliments on my make up this time which I was really flattered by. Not sure what I did differently but I endeavor to do it again...for the last 4 events ever. T_T We all knew that Maelstrom had an end I just thought it would be another 2 or 3 years down the line, not 1. Sad but exciting as I'm sure Empire - the new game PD are running will be excellent. We're also hoping to give Odyssey a bash next year - monies pending.

Oh and our tent survived the storm warning winds and we made it through the nights tired but unscathed.

The rest of this week has seen Return of the Most Annoying Toothache. I really need to get back to the dentist but I don't really want to take the time off work and also can't really afford the treatment until payday. Ick. It's peetering out but I'm sure this is the second return since I had my filling last year. Stupid teeth.

I met Annie and Ashley for coffee on Tuesday and while it was nice really I was too tired and too tooth-achey to really be very good company. Wednesday I finished work at 5pm on the dot and it took until 7:20 to get home. -_-' Granted I spent 20 minutes in Sainsburys buying some food but really the rest was all bus related fail. Public transport quite literally makes me want to cry sometimes.

Work has been okay but very very busy and honestly my fried brains state hasn't been helping. Once again plus tooth ache and I just want to crawl into a cupboard and hide.

Thankfully tomorrow is Friday and Waz and I have already promised each other a day doing NOTHING on Sunday. NOTHING with all capitals because by all the powers that be if I do not get a lie in, some more lie in and some extra lie in with a side of lie in then I might start strangling people in their sleep.

I may however dedicate some time to plotting and planning. I am finally making head way with ideas for my Big Project. Woo hoo. However I am also contemplating NaNoWriMo this year. It was 2008 when I did it last which seems forever ago. I thought it was 2009 but I was wrong, it was 2008. I picked 2008 to do it because I had little else on in my life but uni and some social things. These days I am at least twice as busy, have a boy to love and friends to pester and Stuff keeps appearing in my calender. 2008s attempt was to test my writing ability and whether I could focus for 50000 words on one project. The answer was yes. There was a big 'but' however and the 53K odd that I wrote on that one project has in the last two years grown by only another 2000 and that was in the immediate month after. Talk about burned out.

I think this year I'm going to aim for the 50000 in something less Big plot wise. I'm thinking some kind of supernatural chick-lit and the test being if I can complete something more-or-less whole in a month this time. I don't mean perfect or anything close to perfect but I do mean with a beginning, a middle and an end. I will continue Big Planning for Big Project and start contemplating the possibility of signing myself away for a month. I have inklings of ideas that I'm going to shortly go and ferment in the bath.

After reading all of that, dear F-List...How are you?? What has been keeping you busy?

^o^ We made it to the beach today. Yeeeey
Yesterday Waz woke up with a stinking headache so we had a slow morning, popped to see Thor in the afternoon and generally took it easy.
He's super nervous about his 6 month probation interview with work. Fingers crossed for us guys, things have been going pretty well for us two lately and we're both waiting for the imminent kick in the balls. Please don't let it be unemployment for him. Please, please, please.

To keep busy and cheerful Waz took me to the beach at Scarborough today. We hit up the North Bay, somewhat unintentionally because while I did do my reading and found out that there were two bays, North and South, and that one was quieter and less commercial and full of cheesy arcades etc than the other, I couldn't remember which was which by the time we got there. The North one turned out to be the quieter of the two. It meant that we accidentally avoided the 'true spirit' of the Blighty seafront - harbour/pier/candyfloss/neon lights/fun fair and instead got a stretch of gorgeous beach, small brightly coloured beach huts and it was generally less manic, all overlooked by the ruins of Scarborough Castle.

We paddled in the sea, sunbathed, gossiped, read, had fish and chips and ice cream and generally unwound and enjoyed each other's company.

It was glorious.

And I'm posting pictures mostly to prove that British summer is beautiful blue skies.



Sorry it's wonky O.o' My photography 'skills' were not present today, it would seem.Pictures! =) )
