I love a four-day working week

 
Happy Friday, folks. Time to Celebrate The Small Things. If you want to join in, check out the link from VikLit here. Here are my highlights of the week.
  • I had a very successful meeting with fellow yoga teacher Penny. On 21 September, we are running a workshop on 'Yoga for Positive Living'. Planning is going well and bookings have started to come in.
  • I've broken the back of a massive proofreading job.
  • I've crept into the etherbooks.com Top Free Downloads chart at number 24. Woo-hoo! Now, if I could only convert them into sales.
  • We have finally started to decorate our spare bedroom. Over the 12 years since we moved in we have done some superficial touching up, but this time we are going to do it properly, which means stripping off decades of paint and woodchip. Inevitably, since this is an old house, chunks of plaster have come away, too. On a particularly challenging part of the sloping ceiling we found the signature of, presumably, a previous occupant, Mr Lovell, dated 1952!
  • Made some more jam - courgette, rhubarb and ginger. 
  • My son's band has a new song on Soundcloud, called 'Is That You?' Please listen and like here, if you have a moment. 
Have a lovely weekend, everyone.

    1. We shall write our names on the new plaster before we decorate. Wonder if they will still be there in 60 years' time.

  5. Had a listen to Joe ..... It's quite a departure from what we're used to; very grown-up sound, really cool.
