All About You: The No Internet Edition

Krissie is without internet for awhile so here’s your Monday post.  What’s in your plans for this week, assuming you’re not in northeastern America and about to be hit with a major storm?  I’m working on Nita and the house and hunkering down until tomorrow.  The power will probably go out.  It’s just one damn thing after another.  But if that happens, at least I can do nothing . . .

  1. Even though I’m working today, it’s still not Monday. But I daresay you’re compensating in case you can’t post this tomorrow?

    Anyway, this week I hope to finish the actual edit of the book I’m working on, and persuade the authors to tell me when they’ll be available to go through queries, so I can look for some work to fill the gap.

    What I’d really like for next week is some photography time, but I need to keep earning.

    We are at my in-laws today picking up some stuff and then heading home tomorrow. I’m also talking to the dog rescue about getting a new beast. We are going to meet some adult dogs and see how our dogs get along, we are torn between and adult and a pup.

    On Friday I head back to the city for Thor:Ragnarok and a craft fair.

    Tall Boy got a clean bill of health from the cardiologist and doesn’t have to go back for 2-3 years.

  3. This is what comes of speaking too soon: a friend told me last night that I need to accept I can’t have everything I want in my new home, and need to widen my search patameters. So I got upset, and widened my search parameters. And today I went to see some semi-detached bungalows they’re building half an hour’s walk from the middle of town (I’ve been aiming for 15 minutes). And am now all on end because I’m getting yes on offering for one. The pull is they face south onto a field with sheep, and a distant view down the Welsh Border.

    So this week I’ve got to sort that out. And also do as much editing as possible, because I really need to generate more income.

      Is there any kind of guarantee that the field will remain a field, and not have more houses built on it in a couple of years (houses that may also block your view of the Welsh Border)?

      • Well, it’s not on the local plan for development in the next ten years, but of course there are never any guarantees. I’m going to risk it: I’ve been looking for eighteen months now.

            JaneB. This is so exciting for you. Is it completely done or will you be able to direct the color scheme and appliances before you move in? I added a Miele Speed oven to my kitchen and have not been disappointed. I still have my regular full size oven but the speed oven is what I use for microwave and 75 percent of my convection baking, broiling, standard baking. I have not yet tried the combination microwave/convection mode.

          • I’ll be able to choose flooring, cupboard doors, worktop and tiles. I’ve already said I want an induction hob rather than gas. And I’m wondering whether to go for a free-standing stove, in fact: the eye-level built-in oven seems to cut the small kitchen in half. My taste is completely opposite to current minimalist/inhuman fashion, though, and I don’t suppose I’ll be able to have what I’d really like – which wouldn’t be plastic. (Because I won’t be able to afford going that bespoke.)

    Driving 120 miles later today to see Johnny Clegg on his farewell tour tonight (sob!). Not eating all the Halloween candy leftovers. Plant lots of plants and argue, er, discuss the location for the raised bed in the front yard with the DH.

    This has been a crazy break from school – escaping Weatherbomb Brian, my father-in-law’s 90th birthday with parties and family, catching up with dear friends and doing handover days at my new school, where I start in January. Am getting so excited. I think for the first time in a while, I’m going to be taken seriously in a professional context and I will be able to build and deliver a really positive educational environment. I still have a lot to learn in terms of working out resourcing, the financial implications of what I want to do, getting to know and develop my team and really pinning down the nitty gritty of how to make this vision become a working, viable reality.

    But in the interim, to fill in the waiting, am going to give Nano a really good attempt over the next few weeks….
