Flying Solo ...

Well, Trish has done it. Which is lovely in that it proves my daily word target *is* humanly possible, but it leaves me burning the midnight oil alone.

And tonight is music night. In our house we play piano, cornet, flute, cello, violin and clarinet. In order to simplify the logistics the wind teacher comes to us and his other pupils come here also. Which, for me, means lots and lots of coffee making ....

Oh, and I feel a strange compulsion to tidy the house. Just a bit! And only the bits people see. After all, it seems you have to be a writer with a deadline to truly understand how low a priority a lemon fresh toilet has in the greater scheme of things.

Right, school run and then write ...

There's no earthly reason to have this picture - just cheered me up to see it!

    Is that Hugh Jackman? Jeepers. Are there no hunkiness levels to which the mannot cannot climb?

    I don't even know if the above was grammatically correct, that's how befuzzled that picture made me.

    Hey, you'll make your deadline. You've done it before and you'll do it again.

    Hope you enjoy music night. Our lessons are scattered - me on Tuesday mornings, son on Wednesdays, DH on alternate Fridays, and daughter trying to talk me into teaching her 'five minutes a day'.

    You wanted to clean? Have you checked your temperature lately?

    Sounds like a good idea to have the tutor and pupils come to your house. My daughter has recently aquired a guitar (with my money, I might add) and is now asking for lessons. She'd also like a keyboard. Where do they think money comes from? No doubt I'll give in, but not before she's been down on her knees...
