The best laid plans…

Tennant Kilt

There's nothing cuter than a man in a kilt....Image via Wikipedia

Funny that I’m using a poem line given last night was ‘Rabbie Burns night‘. (‘The best laid plans of mice and men gang aft aglee’ ).  Being a wee Scottish lass…ahem, sorry.  Seeing as I hail from Scotland, it’s become a bit of a tradition in our house to at least celebrate Burns night, and St Andrews Day with Haggis, though, to be fair, it’s usually a case of ‘any excuse’.

We celebrated with lots of haggis, neeps (swedes) and tatties (potatoes).  No kilts, but only because my other half was so busy sorting out brownies and other fun stuff.
I don’t always make it clear but I’m a full-time copywriter – I own my own copywriting company (Digital Steward) and I work as a subcontractor for a couple of great companies.  I’ve always got work, so I guess I’m more secure in my job than most freelancers.  What I don’t like about it, of course, is that it still flows much like freelance work does sometimes.  I think I’m going to have time off and I don’t.

So all of these plans for writing up the last of these queued blog posts have been put on hold, for now anyway – I’ve got articles and case studies to write about a complicated server-side process (which I quite happily understand, go me) and no other half until probably somewhere close to 8pm tonight (working late).  So the blog posts are there, ready and waiting (with another two called ‘How CSI can make you a better blogger’ and ‘How House can make you a better blogger’) but for now it’ll have to wait.

Be good while I’m working, huh?

PS. if you’re interested, I’ve posted a recipie for Chicken Balmoral on my other site.

The Covidcoaster – a week of ill #Mondayblogs #rungirlrun #kaiatus #Bloggingfromatoz

Last Monday, I posted about how myself and my youngest tested positive for CV19. Monday/Tuesday, I started getting really sick. Monday, I'd been quite cheerful - after all, Artenapan, my daughter, had had three days of a cough and little else. That's not how it played...

The two pink lines we didn’t want… #mondayblogs #rungirlrun

Just a quick one this week, as I have had a positive LFT for covid this morning. Lft 2 pink lines #covidtest #UK What this means in all practical terms is I'm more grateful than ever for my vaccines and, in part due to something my partner said this week, I've pitched...

A 2022 plan in the making… #mondayblogs #backlist #kailarks #rungirlrun

So I did my retrospective. And I don't do resolutions, mostly because if I did, I'd get into even more trouble than I'm in already. But, I do sorta, do plans for the year ahead.I've split them into personal and professional, then split appropriately from there. That...
