Taking Stock - Feb

I will be honest, I'm not a fan of these kinds of posts so it will be short and sweet. I'm just not sure what's of interest to the reader, and what I get from doing it, as the writer....

Life this week (well, last week) saw me:

Eating the fabulous watermelon cake




Drinking cocktails

Pondering if I should spend the big bucks to hit Womad on the Sunday night (fly back first thing Monday) to listen to Hot 8 Brass Band and the AMAZING Parov Stelar? Still deciding, stay tuned. With airfares and a hotel, it's BIG bucks...






Reading the new(ish) Herman Koch which I'm loving (I adored The Dinner, but was not enthused by The Summer House with a pool (or whatever it was called).













Watching the new Trainspotting at the movies (I liked it) and Barbu at the Opera House (tomorrow night).

Thinking about my smart daughter's advice - If you aren't smiling, you're doing it wrong.

Writing, hopefully, my First of the Month Fiction for Tuesday's #IBOT.

Linking with #OpenSlather

Anyone want to tell me I MUST go to Womad?

PS I've not watched all 6 mins of this clip so I can't tell you if it's suitable for work or not.

  1. I always quite like the randomness of these kinds of posts though you're pretty good at sharing what you've been up to all of the time, which I think is an art in itself. (Unlike moi who harps on about random crap all of the time!)

  4. Just seeing this post makes me want a chocolate martini. (And I know you didn't specify what cocktail you were drinking, but the chocolate martini is my new favorite.)

    I'm not sure what good life posts actually do overall for improving writing or gaining readership, but it's always fun to look back and think "this is where I was". :)

  6. Your intro is hilarious!!
    I can't wait to see Trainspotting 2. I will have to watch the first again to refresh my memory though.

    1. Definitely do, because so many of the images are mirrored.

  8. I didn't watch the first Trainspotting all the way through, but the previews for this one do look particularly good to me. I think I'll be heading out to watch it.

  10. A watermelon cake? I've been craving watermelon salad all week. Even went to the trouble of carting home the biggest watermelon, only to find it was past its prime. #openslather
