Spring is on it’s way.

It’s great to get up early and have it light for going out to work. And the eclipse was great looking at it through a welding mask that a passing welder happened to lend me. There are lots of advantages to an early morning cleaning job, the main one being money in the bank at the end of the week of course, and also having the rest of the day after morning coffee to yourself.

Another benefit is saving on gym membership, as the physical nature of the job keeps you more than fit. Also, and this one should come first really, I work with a merry mix of colleagues who are delightful, and great fun. Today I was with my Sunderland buddy, and we’re more like Sisters than work mates, as we laugh at the same things, which is mostly everything, and we work hard together to make the places shine like sunshine on a sea=shore…. she says something else, but I’ll leave that to your own imagination.

I’ve almost finished decorating the writing space, and we took more books to the charity shop today. I’ve made more space, and soon there will be a funky desk in place, and a new computer. Photos will appear soon, and I still want to do Sheila Crosby’s interview, and also Patsy Collins has a new story collection out, so hoping to talk to her about that on here soon as well.

Enjoy the springtime sunshine, and keep smiling, you know it makes sense.

  1. Spring time? I’ve just driven through a snow storm and watched my car thermometer drop from 11 to 3 degrees during a three-mile journey.

  2. Shh! You said it (the title of this post) and then the terrific hail storms arrived. Our garden changed from blue and yellow flowers to inch deep white stuff in the matter of a minute. Next time you announce you know what, can you do it quietly.

    1. Hi Linda, that’s what I love about you, you need more information… We were cleaning canteens and offices at an engineering firm, and all the factory chaps were outside when I tried to look at the eclipse. One of them handed me his welding mask.

  3. Love the spring pictures, Sue. Glad to hear about your new writing space and computer. Looking forward to Sheila’s interview and the launch of Patsy’s new book.

  4. Your cheerful posts always make me smile, Susan. Good luck with that newly decorated writing space, the funky desk, and the new computer. There will be no stopping you, now. xx

  5. Your job doessound perfect to fit in with writing. I think it helps to get away from the desk and to do something different and speak to other people.

    Thanks for the mention. Look forward to being interogated soon!
