Grumpy, Grumpy

I have been particularly grumpy over the past couple of days. Now most of you will be aware that I’ve had issues with one of my feet. Which was a pain. See, now what’s happened is, because I’ve been putting weight and at the wrong angles on the other (previously good) foot to compensate, now that one’s knackered, with the result being that, for the past few days, I’ve had two bad feet and have been walking like Richard III. I have to go for an X-ray at some point soon.

So I’ve not been able to do too much. Like leaving the house, or driving, or going to this do, which I really wanted to go to. Harrumph.


But it’s not all been bad. I’m starting to put together my writing group’s second anthology of stories and poems they’ve written since I’ve been with them, which is exciting. (Sue, if you’re reading this can you PLEASE get in touch?) The one we did last year (we self published it through Lulu) was great. I must add that as someone who has no publishing experience (my job’s to write) the whole Lulu process was very simple.

Also, one of the newer members has just had a poem accepted. It’s a World War 1 poem and it’s going in a regiment’s magazine, which is pretty much the perfect place for it. Very good news.

And as the poet mentioned in the above paragraph is associated with the British Legion, we’re also going to try to put together a small collection of poems, stories and interviews with former servicemen and women for our local BL.

Um, I think that’s about it.

    So sorry to hear it’s been a crap few days, well you have had a crappy few weeks in terms of body and mobility and pain. Do something to treat yourself! Lovely about the anthology, that must be fun. Have you got anything else nice planned? Wishing you fully better as swiftly as poss.

    Thanks, Anne. I’ll quite happily go back to them after last year’s experience – they made things easy for a dunce like me!And thanks, Tania. Um, no, nothing planned at all really; difficult when me and beloved are busy bees and one of us is a little short of mobile! 😉 Actually, there’ll be a reading night when the anthology comes out which I hope to video. That’d be nice, I reckon. Will have to think of more!Thanks for the good foot wishes, folks.N X
