Most of my week is spent sitting at the desk in front of my laptop trying to write stories.
But I do take breaks. Patchwork is one of
my past times, though why I like to cut fabric up into thousands of tiny pieces only to sew them all together again is a bit crazy.
Then there are the chooks to look out for. A few weeks ago a falcon swooped in and killed one of my girls so I had to spend hours putting up netting to protect the rest. So far it’s working.
The raspberry patch needed to be dug over and the plants split before replanting. That kept me out of mischief for days. Now I can’t wait for December and lots of yummy berries. The cherry tree is my next target as it needs pruning.
Now spring is here I’m testing the water temperature so I can get the kayak out again. I don’t use it in the winter as I haven’t got a wet suit and I always get soaked. The bike needs dusting and the tyres pumping too.
What do you do in your down time between work and chores? Note, I didn’t mention housework.
This is my current book on the shelves. Set in Wellington, NZ, with drugs and a gun totting villain in the first few pages.
