The summer break is flying by and I have had a busy few weeks. I have slept in a tent, paddled in a pool, chopped down some trees, messed about on my allotment and read lots books. My house is full and the phone constantly rings.
I love the chaos of family life and can’t imagine what it will be like when everyone is back at school. I will have lots of housework to catch up on and my studies for A363 of course, but I am used to chatter and music. I actually quite like an untidy house, although not quite as messy as it is right now.
Until September I am reading The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid and trying to prevent us all from running out of clean clothes.
I am also taking some tentative steps towards a new piece of writing. I’m excited, but nervous too. I have written something which will not be marked by a tutor. Fortunately I have plenty of willing friends to read and critique my work, but ultimately the decisions will be mine. I hope that I will have confidence in my abilities and be able to publish my work.
