Friday 8 November 2013

What a difference a week makes, I'm so much happier today than I was last Friday, not withstanding that I've had to pay out £100 to get my wing mirror fixed after a bit of a prang. Still, could have been so much worse.

So let's get on with Celebrating the Small Things.
  • The company that owed me £250 has paid up!
  • I have a reader's letter coming up in the New Year in a gardening mag.
  • I think I've sold an article (won't say what, in case it all goes belly up).
  • I also have an article in Freelance Market News this month.
  • Number One Son is safely moved into his new home.
  • I had a lovely birthday. Thanks to family and friends for a great day - and check out these funky flowers:


  1. Oh wow, those flowers are awesome! Glad you're in a better place this week, have a great weekend! :)

    1. Thanks, Laura. When I start to get glum I know I have to go all the way to the bottom before I can bounce back. On the upon again now. :)

  2. "Life is a roller coaster" as 10cc would say.

  3. Ah, such a warm, fuzzy celebration here. Happy belated birthday!

  4. Congratulations. What a great week. I hope your article sale goes through.

  5. Beautiful flowers and glad your birthday was a good un!

  6. Thanks for stopping by, M J, Rhonda and Vik.
