Crawling into the weekend

About a mile and a half today…

…and I’m still finding it a bit tiring, but I’m doing okay.

I was writing until into the evening today as I got a bit absorbed in my NaNo project. Good to get a buffer in for my wordcount as I’m going to be a bit busier over the weekend. Will update again on Monday!

Christmas leggings, take 3
An especially bright pair of Christmas leggings today.

Today’s earworm playlist:

Duran Duran – ‘Friends Of Mine’

A possible turnaround

I managed more than two miles this morning…

…and I finally felt like I had my energy back, so hopefully this will continue!

I was able to get through all my writing and onto my admin fairly quickly today, so I’m hoping to be able to spend a good chunk of time chilling out with my videogame this evening.

Great day overall. Similar tomorrow I hope!

Christmas leggings, edition 2
Continuing the Christmas leggings theme! Now with bonus Christmas socks.

The Sisters Of Mercy – ‘This Corrosion’

Phone Box Thursday: B7052, Whauphill

Here’s another phone box from Mum and Dad’s adventures in Dumfries and Galloway.

Red phone box
Red phone box, B7052, Whauphill, 14th September 2020.

(Coordinates 54°81’79.8″N, 4°48’55.4″W – roughly.)

Unfortunately the Google cars, on their one brief visit to rural Scotland in 2009, couldn’t be bothered to drive through Whauphill itself, so the Google Street View image above is as close as we can get. The phone box stands outside the village hall, the location of which is shown on this map – you can see it’s just around the corner from where the Street View coverage ends.

The phone box itself has been adopted by the local community, which is great as it means the box will stick around, though its purpose is so far unclear. Some clothes have been left in the box, so it may be being used as a donation point.

More from Scotland next week.

World to world

I managed a mile and a half today…

…which doesn’t sound like much, but after recent runs it was a bit of a victory!

I had the usual day working on writing projects today – jumping from fictional world, to fictional world, which can be a bit tiring sometimes – and expect tomorrow will be similar (still hoping to wake up a bit earlier, but my body seems to have well and truly entered hibernation mode now).

A bit of Christmas sparkle creeping into my life now…

Christmas leggings, edition 1
I’ve been very patient but today I finally decided to start wearing leggings from my Christmas collection. There may be a theme to these photos over the next few days!

Today’s earworm playlist:

Marina & The Diamonds – ‘Hollywood’
Ludwig Göransson – ‘The Mandalorian [Main Theme]’

Juggling November

Another slightly frustrating mile today…

…but tomorrow I have a plan for getting a longer run done. Hope it works!

I spent another day doing piecemeal writing and editing projects – NaNo, jam game planning, short story planning, a bit of day job work. This is going to be every day in November unless I finish the short story early, which I don’t think I will unless I really get into it. I’m being strict about finishing writing and editing by 6pm so that I can get my admin done by 9pm and squeeze a couple of hours of videogaming in before bed, as I know that’s the only thing that’s going to keep me sane this month.

Another busy day tomorrow, but it’s the good kind of busy!

Great Run Solo Hallowe'en medal
My medal for my Great Run Solo Hallowe’en accumulator challenge arrived today, which means I can finally complete my decor project from a couple of months ago! Hoping to get it all up on the walls this weekend…

Today’s earworm playlist:

Duran Duran – ‘A View To A Kill’

Racking up the projects

Just a mile this morning…

…because I’m still waking up with no energy, and I’m starting to get a bit worried. Hoping this fatigue will pass soon.

I’ve been very busy with writing projects most of today. I did my usual amount for my NaNoWriMo project, then a good chunk of planning for my next Adventuron jam game, then planned out a branching story that I’m hoping to put on another platform soon. I also had a bit of last-minute day job work. Most of the evening has been taken up with admin, but I’m still hoping to squeeze an hour of videogaming in before bed.

It’s all a bit mental and busy, but it always is during November! At least I’ve got a little more time than usual this year with the lockdown…

Tomorrow should be similar, though I’m hoping to be less tired in the morning.

Fetch hoodie
I have spent the weekend being comfy in loungewear and my new Fetch Everyone hoodie. Most of my old hoodies are getting pretty tatty now so I’m trying to collect a few new ones.

Village People – ‘YMCA’*

*Upon hearing this blasting from my phone this morning, Geth immediately asked me which of two popular Trump-related meme videos I was watching… which I think sums up the last few days, really.
