Flying Thursday post

After a whirlwind morning of extra clients showing up with emergency day job work, my usual treadmill run, getting away with only half a pound gain at Slimming World (I have not been good at staying on plan this week so I’m okay with that!), finishing the day job work I’d actually planned to get done today, and getting a small chunk done on my writing project, it is officially Easter holidays and I am off out for a Maundy Thursday night out tonight!

**Another of my own compositions, a campfire-style song from circa 1998, which again has only ever existed in my head. I’ve not had any of my own daft musical attempts as earworms for years, and suddenly two of them come along on the same day. Rather like buses, appropriately enough.
