Thanks, Edits & Chasing Buses
Many thanks for all the votes you've so generously given Grumpy's Palace for our entry to Shed of the Year 2009. Having looked at the site, I can't imagine we have a hope of getting anywhere, as there are some fantastic creations included, and ours is just, well, it's just a shed, isn't it? All good fun though.
I've finished the edits (did you hear me cheer from where you are?) and before I start to faff about with it too much (again) I'm now printing it off and will be sending my coursework off for the Caerleon course I'm taking part in with Marina Oliver, and also the whole manuscript to the RNA's New Writers' Scheme. After I've done that, it's on with the subbing, sending out short stories, as I haven't done much at all this year, and then I can get on with my next project, can't wait.
Dropped S at the bus stop today. As we were a little early, she said, "Mum, can we wait at the Parish Hall for a bit." We did, and as two females do when they have a second to spare, we started chatting. "Mum," S shouted several minutes later, "Isn't that my bus?" It was, so off I was again, bus chasing for a few miles, until I managed to get to a road wide enough to overtake and, like Steve McQueen in Bullet, got to the next bus stop just in time to allow S to get out of my car and catch the bus to school.
