Talking of distractions, I love the choice of viewing on TV at the weekends just now and I'm very grateful for the recording facility. Saturday's favourite is Strictly Dancing, followed by Inspector Montalbano - I might have a quick look at the X Factor, but it doesn't hold my attention now.
Sunday is the Strictly results and then the choice between Homeland and Downton Abbey. Must admit, DH and I now watch Homeland at once and record Downton for another evening. Although we really enjoy both, we can't stand the suspense of finding out what will happen next on Homeland - and we're never disappointed.
And writing, I hear you ask? Yes, that's being worked in and around the viewing and going out. With NaNo starting on Thursday, I'm trying to get organised - especially since I'm working on a novella and hoping to get well on with a contemporary novel as the official NaNo challenge. Some things never change, but I probably wouldn't be able to work any other way!
Now I'm passing on the Top Commenter Award to Joanna, Joanne, Jean, Paula, Talli, Teresa, Frances, and Carol. Apologies if any of you already have this award, but you are some of my top commenters!
