Okay. It’s the second day, and things are going okay. I’ve already thrown in a few conceptual curveballs, I’m considering re-introducing a character I didn’t think I could fit (because I’m not certain that the engineering of the story will actually function without them), and I’m actually happier about this than I’ve felt in a long time. This is what I’m meant to do.
George had a very bad day yesterday, to the extent that she had to call me up just to vent down the phone about how bad things were going, so in order to cheer her up, I baked her a cake before she came home. It was just a Victoria Sponge with buttercream icing, but she was so amazingly happy as a result, it was quite lovely. I just wanted to do something to help, and that seemed like the natural thing to do.
Film night tonight- this week, we had BATMAN BEGINS- which George enjoyed much more this time around (first time, I had a bit of a weird reaction when she didn’t enjoy it that much). All went very well. And George’s mum is coming to stay on Tuesday night. I’m looking forward to the rest of the week- I just wish I didn’t have to stop writing (at least in this volume) when Saturday comes.
More to do…
