Is everyone in the UK OK? Did anyone get washed into the sea?

Man!

I can't remember ever seeing rain like that in these latitudes before. Sheets and sheets of it, hour after hour. We're OK up here, on a moor, 1000 feet above SL but I believe most of South Yorkshire is in a bad way. They're sandbagging houses over where my relatives live in Chapeltown and Ecclesfield and much of Sheffield is under water.

How about the rest of you?

Hey ho... I am SO trying to catch up with life at the moment and it keeps getting away from me.

So what's new, chez Gilly you may ask yourself? Well, nothing much, sadly... I just spent the last three days tiling my parents kitchen; tiled like a loony I have, but ran out of tiles, so no more tiling till next visit (since I bought them in Chorley). Oh dear what a shame. Cut my finger rather badly hacking the old tiles off too; bled like a bastard. )o:

But I've been making writery progress; been hauling my fat arse out of bed at six to write my book which is (if I can keep to the very slack schedule I've set myself) due to be finished next Saturday. I'll be sending out the traditional begging email to my agent this week and keeping my fingers crossed.

My fic writing activities  have been a bit neglected as a result, but I'm hoping to press on with those over the next few days. And I need to do some serious re-writing on the last bit of my Moonridge fic if the comment from my worthy betas is anything to go by. Hey ho...

Of course, I'd've got a LOT more work done today if I hadn't just spent TWO HOURS reading an old fic. Linda, who runs the Pete Duel Site emailed to say the new fic page was now live; I moseyed over to look and ended up getting very involved in The Gift,  a fic I wrote some years ago. It wasn't half bad, either. Damn, I'm good! <VBG>

And it seems...


I am a

What Flower
Are You?




You have a sunny disposition and are normally one of the first to show up for the party. You don't need too much attention from the host once you get there as you are more than capable of making yourself seen and heard.

Heh heh... Well that's so true... ::whistles, examines fingernails::

 Such is my life. How about the rest of you? I hope all's well with your world, my estimable flist. If I owe you emails and/or comment, I might finally get around to you sometime today.

Anyway, back to twinkling like the Milky Way...

.. at last. Gosh golly gosh, but tis cold out there! Sunny, blue skies - gorgeous! But very, very cold.

I really should go for a run, it's been days, but, if I'm honest with myself, I see lots of tea, hot buttered crumpets and rampant self-indulgence in the form of listening to Jon Ross, reading my newly arrived DUG books and maybe even some writing in my immediate future. There's a Roman AU that's screaming for attention, dammit. I'm having problems with bloody little Han - he's SOOOO annoying, and I can't get John Hurt's Caligula out of me head when I'm writing him. ::heaves helpless sigh::

In the meantime, because everyone else is doing it...
