Over-reached myself

I think I've set myself a tough target.  Today I set high goals, didn't make them but revisiting tomorrow.

I wanted to finish the next episode of 'At the Sign of the White Hart' - didn't manage it but did manage over a thousand words.  I also wanted to write my piece for the Light and Shade Challenge, but at least I know now what I'm writing.

I wanted to make a dent in the Future Learn writing course which I am finding incredibly tough.  I've just fudged an assignment.  It's a free course, so I don't have to explain anything to a tutor, but I am sinking.  It needed research today.  As far as I can tell, the Dutch for a boggart is Kabouter.

I went on Sporcle and for the first time ever spelled 'Massachusetts' right on the first attempt.

I wanted to start the 30 day to a Clean and Organised House (again) but as the kitchen looks like it has been repeatedly sprinkled with magic messy dust and in three days time workmen are going to be installing a smartmeter there (and in the dining room which is even worse) so while I only managed some basics today, I will be concentrating there tomorrow.

I applied for work at an online transcription service.  I'm nervous about that and not sure how well I did on the test.  That took a large chunk of day but I am glad that I did it.

Bear was white as a sheet when I picked him up from school and is not a well lad.  The poor kid has been fussy all evening.  He is supposed to be going to soccer practice tomorrow and then on Wednesday he is supposed to be doing his second cross country race.  I am not sure he will be fit.

I'm going to bed now.


  1. Poor Bear. I hope he is well soon-x-

  2. Waiting with bated breath for next instalment of White Hart!

  3. Hope Bear feels better soon! I try those organisation things but end up failing. Watching hoarding shows sometimes help lol. Don't be too hard on yourself regarding writing. It will come.
