I feel very lucky that a couple of years ago my husband and I achieved a goal of owning a small motorhome which means on days like today my office is mobile and the view is fantastic. On top of that I’m also on holiday and not even thinking about my day job.
The downside is that I don’t always have as a productive a day as I would at home, I’m ok with that though because the time I spend roaming the countryside and hanging out with my husband helps to keep my creativity topped up. I find that these relaxing times are often the spring board for great new ideas or the further development of ones I already have in the pipe line.
This morning I had a lazy morning and got up at 8.30am - this might not sound like a ling lie to some but given that I normally get up at 6.20am it is for me. I had a leisurely breakfast of grapefruit followed by overnight oats and a morning spent chatting listening to music and reading.
Just before lunch we discovered our waste water pipe was blocked so the next hour was less glamorous as we got that cleared!
Lunch was sardines on toast sitting outside in the unexpected sunshine (only a few days ago, in our last location there was snow on the ground).
I’ve managed a respectable 1000 words so far today and hope to get at least another 2000 in before the end of the day. I’m trying to stay on track for my 4000 words this week (set out in my last goals & planning blog). I’m sure that the next few days of my holiday will allow me to get to that goal.
This evening will consist of chicken pie and veg and I’m excited that I was able to find Gluten Free Pieminster Pies in the local Morrisons here and then probably a DVD before an earliest bed as we’re departing tomorrow to head on to our next location.
I’d love to hear about a day in your writing life, why don’t you drop me an update in the comments.
