I missed last weeks posting for good reasons.
First, we had a flat tyre that needed repairing, and the logistics of sorting that were more of a faff than we wanted it to be.
And then the boiler broke down. On the Same Day. So we improvised with the heating, and the next day a man came to came fix things.
We were happy, we had heating. So we went out for about four hours and came back to ‘the smell’. The smell of leaking Kerosine is extremely potent. The leak came after we’d had a man out to fix and service the boiler.
A bolt was loose, so it was an easy fix, but it meant that for the whole week the entire house stank of kerosene, and not just a bit wiffy, but stank stank.
And apparently, that kind of kerosene inhalation is not good for you (go figure) so we spent the week feeling incredibly dopey and with frequent headaches.
Results Of The Leak
Jump to this week and the kerosene smell has dwindled, but the other half now has another raging cold, which will be the fourth one is as many months. I have another sore throat, and a cold which will also be my fourth. It is getting beyond a joke.
As a result not only did I not blog, but I didn’t vlog either, other than the Friday Show. So at least I was consistent if nothing else.
What Did I Achieve?
I also manage to open my WIP for my writing. I’ve only done one day, but in that day I wrote 837 brand new words and copied a further 500 from the old WIP to be tweaked.
Anyway, whinging aside, I did at least manage to finish the Cosmic ponies – Mother and Foal.
You can find it on cushions and things at society6
It took me far longer to complete than it should have, but that did seem to be the theme of the week.
