Holidays, Update, Writing

MAY UPDATE…

The end of May is here already. How has that happened? The month has sped by, despite the way life in general has shrunk due to Covid-19 rules and regulations.  So what have I been up to? I’d love to say I’m enjoying getting back to normal life but unfortunately that’s still a way off.  In the meantime, I’m listing my May milestones 

 

Follow up with Consultant: Carried out over the phone. I’ve made a good recovery. I’ve healed well, am eating well and exercising regularly. It’s all good news but there will still have to be regular checks. 

 

An opportunity to travel farther to exercise: Yes, I know I think we could probably have got away with this earlier, but we played by the rules.  Now the daily walk has extended to a couple of local villages where we park up and take a walk.  The warm weather has been a real bonus.

 

Holiday: Our trip to Norfolk won’t be happening. Instead the travel company have allowed us to switch to another date in 2021 and we’ll be charged 2020 prices. Sad not to be going back to Wells Next The Sea (this would have been our third stay here since 2007) but it’s given us something to look forward to. I know a lot of people are keen to get away but until they develop a vaccine holiday experiences, like shopping are going to be vastly different and maybe not so enjoyable.

Birthday: A very surreal experience this year. Normally we’d be out celebrating either together or with friends. Instead I cooked and OH bought some bubbly. Not sure even if restaurants had opened up I would have enjoyed it, given the social distancing and other safety measures that have to be put in place.  Still there’s always next year to look forward to.

 

Writing Now: Cover finalised. A big shout out to Jane Dixon Smith for yet another fabulous cover!  Manuscript away with editor. Formatting booked for later in June. 

Writing What’s next: I have a partially written novel which I’m proposing to resume work on once I’ve taken a short break.  Watch this space.

 

 

Until next month, stay safe everyone…

  1. Well done on moving forward with your projects and things in general. Which is more than I can say, I seem to be treading water and getting nowhere fast!
    Must try harder, I think!

  2. Great post, Jo. I’m so pleased to hear everything is on track health-wise. Long may it continue. Well done on the writing front too. Good that you’ve sorted Norfolk for next year. Let’s hope this lovely sunshine continues and at least we’ll have a decent summer. We were supposed to be going away on 8th June so will also be putting on the pause button holidays-wise. Glad you were able to enjoy your birthday with a nice meal and bubbly 🙂 xx

  3. Thanks Jan, am only glad we didn’t have any more holidays booked. We’d booked Norfolk just before Christmas and then because of my op everything had to be put on hold. I think when we do eventually get away we’ll probably enjoy it more than usual. Can’t believe this weather though. May is more often than not grey and overcast. Definitely making the most of it xx
