Muddy Feet

Plans were drawn up for this weekend.

1. Fully edit my Bibliotheca Fantastica anthology story 'The Binding of Memories'.

2. Provide interesting, thought provoking and wacky answers to interview questions.

3. Write the first draft of another short story that has to be submitted by April 1st.

Then, the sun came out to play. Those of you in the UK will know that when it's sunny, the great British public don their shorts, get out their barbecues and open a can of lager. Okay, I did none of those things but there was no way I was locking myself inside the house all weekend while there were (much-fabled) blue skies outside, and thus, Saturday was spent at the beach with my nephew and niece as evidenced in the picture on the left.

Side-note: this explains why my post at work has been late for the past week, the poor postman is stuck in the sand.

Then today, I diligently edited my BF story but didn't quite tick it off the list as I want to have another read through and then maybe another and... Will you just let it go already. I also answered the interview questions though cannot guarantee my replies were interesting, thought provoking or wacky. Okay, there may have been some wacky. I'm still to write the story due April 1st though as I'm a fool...for the sunshine. I spent the remainder of the afternoon on a deckchair, soaking up the sun and reading.

Hey, in Britain this sudden sunshine may be all we get until next year. By the way, our heatwave topped about 68° F. Who shivered?

68o is nothing to shiver at, although I don't know if I'd go wading if it wasn't ten degrees warmer. :)

Sounds like a great weekend. I hope it's sunny again next weekend, even if that means you don't get enough done. Catching sunshine is important too!

There were cries of, 'We'll all catch hypothermia' but we carried on regardless.

Sounds like a good time! We have to take advantage of nice weather when we have it. :-)

Most definitely especially when I've heard the word snow mentioned with connection to this weekend #surreal

You gotta enjoy the sun while you can living in the UK, that's for sure. The writing can always wait a while.
