28th October: Its that time again...

November 1st is approaching fast... time for pen and paper (reality: laptop) to get ready for some serious word count.

I can hardly believe its time for NANOWRIMO again. (If you have no idea what this is, I highly suggest you follow the link to novel dreams!)
This will be my third year attempting Nano, and I'm a little less prepared than I had hoped I'd be by now, however I shall do my best to pump out my words each day, and hopefully find a plot line along the way.                                                              

My main idea for this years story, is that of a life where nothing grand happens, but how in so many ways he's crossed paths with many other lives (even in the smallest way) where huge events have taken place. How one man can be involved in so many big things, while living his own calm life.

We'll see what happens with that.

Have a lovely weekend,

6th October: Bad Threes

My Grandma has always told me that bad things always come in three's.

Coming across a snake-nest right near our house was definitely one way to start off a shocking week. (Thinking about it we found 3 snake-lings, snake-lets?) We have done our best to make the garden as snake free as possible, yet when they are as small as these were, it is near to impossible to keep them out.

The following night, Bob and Polly (our older puppies) got into a rather serious set to, from which I could not separate them. Normally I can keep my head in stressful times, however when there is a dog fight, I fall apart. Luckily for me, my Dad was only just up the road, and a phone call saw him running down the dimly lit street in a matter of seconds. Both puppies came out with a few battle scares and limps; this has brought them to be best buddies again.

Finally, Sunday, not long after farewell-ing  my Tin-man, I answered the phone at work to him telling me he'd just crashed his car. Again, I fell apart... (Maybe I'm not as good at keeping my head in stressful times as I'd like to think I am!) He didn't so much as have a scratch upon him, the car  on the other hand wasn't so lucky. This brought to mind how blessed I'd been in my own accident; there very well may be two angles up there now, with tire-marks on there backs!
Today I am grateful for the Love and Protection from God above.

A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to a friend on the other side of the world. May you find many adventures in the years that follow. 

I hope your week was slightly calmer than all that!
Blessings to you,
