So my week off, went faster than an X Factor's contestant's career and here I am, back at work tomorrow, feeling that I haven't had any time off at all! The week off has been a bit of a strange one. I've caught up with a few friends, seen Somers Town again (still as brilliant second time round), saw the new Guy Ritchie film, got drenched a few times and yesterday my husband was in a car crash (thankfully okay, but the car is no longer). Needless to say, I'm a little down in the dumps at the moment and when I feel like that, I tend to look at my list, to try and motivate myself into feeling better.
I want something to happen with this list, but I'm not sure what exactly! Perhaps a bit like when I got the call from Radio Nottingham, who were so excited about the whole project and what I was going to do for them. I've considered approaching a TV company to do a documentary, but because of the length of time still running (approx. 3 years) I don't know if any would be interested.
I currently have three tasks ongoing/in the pipeline:- reading BBC Top 100 Reads (just got out War and Peace and Bleak house from the library, which both look like doorstops!), writing my novel and a trip to NYC. I now can add a fourth - a ride in a hot air balloon, which I purchased for my hubbie's birthday and will attempt to do in October. A fifth would be perhaps the You Tube video and a sixth will be either learn a new language or learn the tango - if I can't get in at night class for beginners French, then I'm going to sign up for a dance class. As a side line, I'm also going to research my Granddad's time spent as a Military Policeman in the RAF during the Second World War, for a possible documentary idea I have.
So there you go, see I told you I only had to look at my list to start motivating myself, now just got to get my head around being back at work tomorrow (sigh!)
