On the task front I've only managed to complete two out of the six, I set myself for November. I still need to direct a video, I only managed around 6,000 words this month and I didn't get round to sending a proposal to a TV company or listening to the breakfast show. Not very good, I know, but I blame Christmas - I've been too busy getting everything organised. On the positive side, I did manage to knock another three books off the BBC Top 100 list, so I did manage to do something!
This month - I've set myself a target of completing 10,000 words, reading 4 x books for the BBC top 100 reads and sending a proposal to a magazine for a possible column.
And right now, I'm watching my boys on ITV, thinking where on earth did those people get the tickets from for that show? I could have been on it, and fulfilling my snogging task!
PS I'm on the Radio again tomorrow doing the paper review. If you listen to Radio Nottingham from approx. 8:15am onwards, I will be on the Breakfast show.

It was a cold winter's day that brought us on a return trip to Stratford Upon Avon. We visited two years previously, then just having time to do the usual tourist stops. Since the visit, I promised myself that I would come back some day, to see Shakespeare performed at the RSC and this weekend I managed to do it.

There's usually a reason behind why I procrastinate, it's mainly because I don't like the job, or I don't know how to do it. I sometimes even put off a job, if I like it, to almost savour the moment when I complete it. Sad, I know!
So it may come as no surprise, if I tell you that I've hardly touched my book in the last two weeks. I've come to a pivotal point in the storyline, which equates to the last third of the book and if I'm honest, I'm a little wary of letting go and completing it. Writing your first book, is always going to be a very special moment and is something that I want to last. I will have to let go at some point of course, but for now, I'm quite happy to sit and wait, not too long though as I have a target of ten thousand words to complete this month as part of my target!

We have booked to go to New York for New Year. I've booked the hotel, Rick has booked the flights and I've even started to thinking about booking trips etc. This trip will cover three tasks in one (state of America, trapeze and Times square for New Year). We both decided that we wouldn't go away in Summer, so we forfeited a holiday then for this trip. I've been looking forward to it for months and was hoping to catch up with an old friend whilst we were there.
The project hubbie is working on at the moment was due to go live last weekend. It didn't. Instead they want to put the date back to the end of December. They've requested my husband goes out at that time to cover the live date. It's in Japan. Bang goes our trip to New York. However we have told them, that in order to compensate I want to travel with him for a week, so at least I get the chance to see my hubbie for New Years Eve (hopefully!).
My stomach has been churning all day. I don't know whether I'm coming or going. Then of course, there is the possibility that the project could be put back and we could end up still going to New York or end up doing neither. Oh god, why is life so difficult at times?
I'll keep you posted!

2/ If you're having a less than brilliant day, what record is bound to lift you up?
3/ Is there a track that makes you cry? Why?
4/ Is there a record you associate with someone you love? What is it and why?
5/ Is there a song you associate with a particular time in your life, good or bad? Eg. what was the record playing at your first dance/wedding? Can you remember a record of a holiday romance, birth of your child, celebration of divorce etc...

And for those of you who are in the Cheshire Oaks area on September 27th between 12-2pm, then please do go to Caroline's book signing of 'Black Boxes' at Borders. Her first novel, 'In Search Of Adam', was stunning, so I can't wait to grab a copy of this one.

- I watched the new Shane Meadows film 'Somers Town', which was brilliant
- Wrote a little bit, but not nearly as much as I should!
- Prayed for rain but unfortunately it didn't happen and the street was full of people and cars etc with a crap DJ and very loud music until midnight
