I am back at work now. In the school library and teaching business English one day a week. It is funny to think that England is now on their summer holidays and mine are over. Or are they? My mother has been over distracting me from writing. Now that she has gone, there is a mum shaped whole in my home. I will miss how she lined up our shoes at the front door. I will see her again in December, so not too long I suppose.
There has also been some lovely weather making it still feel summery. This is my mum coming back from rinsing her swimming costume in the sea. We had a BBQ on the cliffs on a school night. It was a great way to break up the week. This is one of my most favourite places in Sweden,
Although I did see some geese flying south.
But with sunset like these they really should stay.
So, with the distractions of mum, starting work and the nice weather I feel I need to set some writing goals. By Christmas, I would like to release a short story I have written and also replace one of my books covers. My aim is to look at the story this weekend and talk to Gavin about new cover ideas to get the ball rolling. Perhaps we can discuss it on the beach? I will keep you posted!
