An interesting mix, I’m sure you’ll agree. We didn’t take any photos this time. Our camera isn’t really up to the job. But we’re possibly going to get a video camera at some point, which will mean we can make films of them. Mind you, we seem to keep spending money at the mo, regardless of whether or not we can actually spare it from the budget!
I went to a writing workshop today and learned more about magical realism. It was a good day, though quite tiring. I came home on a high and went to check the website of a short story competition I had entered. I found that I’d made the long list, which was quite a thrill for me. I haven’t entered many competitions. I'm feeling very happy about writing again. I think I need it. Dani and I were talking the other day about having a creative outlet and how many adults lose that in their lives.
Dani and the kids had spent some time playing with cousins in the park. Then this evening we started the long, slow process of HESFES packing. We have to do a complete pack and see if we can actually move with that much luggage. If we can't, we have to blag more car space for some of our gear and/or weed it again. We’re going very light on clothes this year so if you see some very grubby people who look like us, they’ll be us!
We also watched Doctor Who, which I thought was excellent. The kids both found it very scary. I thought it did a great job of portraying the violence of the mob and the threat of ‘the other’. A stylish episode with very little in the way of special effects.
Everyone is rather tired here. I think it’s the after effect of all the adrenalin before the gig. I was also anxious about waking in time for my workshop today and made Dani check the time on her phone at 6.25am! We need a clock in our bedroom...
