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.
