Tuesday Coffee

My children are in holiday club,

So my husband and I are having a drink,

With my laptop out and a cake on a plate,

This coffee helps me write and think.

Thank you, Starbucks!

Writing Job

As my youngest is attending nursery, I have some free time during the week. As you know, I tend to drive up to Starbucks and sit and write there (I am there right now!), but I have been thinking.

If the right job came up, I would probably return to work.  Is it too much to ask for a job that:

  • I could work on a Monday and Tuesday only?
  • Starts at 9:30am and finishes at 3pm?
  • Is a writing job? As in, do any local businesses or universities need a writer/ideas person?

Those would be the 3 critical requirements.  For too long I’ve applied for jobs that I’ve ALWAYS seen as a stop gap, and there’s no way I’m going back that sort of work life.  I want to write for a living.  As I’m trying to get published at the moment, I see myself as self-employed but without the pay! If I could start getting the pay for work in the same field then hurrah!

New Nonsense!

Image result for nonsense

Good evening everyone! tonight I’ve submitted my entry into the Nonsense Writing Challenge and I’m feeling in a good writing frame of mind.  I do encourage those who are needing some motivation or writing credits to give this a try.  Tomorrow I’ll be heading to my new work (I guess) A.K.A Starbucks to continue my one of my writing projects.  I’m trying to illustrate it myself so let’s see how that goes!

Starbucks Writing

Hello readers!

It’s been a while but I aim to get back on track and let the creative juices flow.  My youngest has started nursery recently with his brother which means I’m all on my own for several hours in the mornings and I thought what better way to spend it than writing? here I am sat in a very chilled out Starbucks, with a latte.  I have 4 projects to edit and illustrate (still not sure how to go about the latter) so I will crack on with that and get back in the swing of things.

 

Happy writing everyone.

Things You Didn’t Know…

My favourite foods are mostly sweet things; cakes, chocolate, biscuits & biscuity chocolate cakes obviously.

I really like regimented routines, anything unclear or even slightly ambiguous and I do not know how to react and go into a proper meltdown.

TV shows I’m watching\have watched in the last 2 months are The Flash (watched every episode now) & 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown. Every now and again I will watch Come Dine With Me if the mood takes me.

If the right job came up I would return to work as the house my family and I live in is just too small.

If there were another 5 hours in a day I’d be at the gym every day.  I love the feeling after a workout.

I don’t like paying full price for things and I spend a lot of time scouring the internet for anything to save pennies where possible.  I love Quidco, Hotukdeals and subscribe and save on Amazon – big shout out to them all.

I keep falling asleep on my acupressure mat and then wake up a tad sore.

Coffee is my newest friend recently, I love going to Starbucks or Costa Coffee but my bank account hates me.

If I could have one thing in life it would be another baby, 3 is what I want.  Even though I mentioned about having a small house I think a baby is more important to me currently.

Will post more later, for now I’m off to do Yoga with my husband (his choice as he has a sore back)

 

Toodles!
