Look at me, I must be getting back on form. 2 posts in 2 days! But hey, you guys are worth it.
Today unfortunately has been peppered with sadness, a very close family friend died, one I consider to be more like an uncle than just a friend of the family. He was my dad's best friend since school. A long, long time ago. As sad as it is, I truthfully can't help but feel a little relieved for him. He's not been very well for a few weeks now and I can only hope that there was no pain for him at the end. Of course I had a good cry into Danny, but Charlie was such a happy guy (admittedly he loved to have a moan, but it was part of his charm so we forgive him haha) and I just know that moping around for him would probably piss him off, so today I'm thinking of all the good memories. My teddy bear, Snowmeltasourass (who he gave to me when I fell sick a few years ago) will always be a reminder of all kindness he had in his heart.
So with that being said I think I shall focus on happy things now, like all the blog reading I've been doing. Seriously it's taken up most of the day, but I've enjoyed every minute of it!
Of course it's distracted me from what I was meant to be doing today...work!!! Okay, technically not work as it's fun and I don't get paid, but still I think it's a cause for a dramatic sound effect or two. You see even though I sadly felt I had to finish writing about my self it seems the urge to write is never too far from me.
For years I've been telling my boyfriend Danny to follow one of his dreams of running a website and a few months ago he finally got his act together and built one up. A constant work in progress but all sites have to have training wheels for a while right? So I started writing for his site, The Gaming Reel, a site for game and movie reviews and bits of news too. There's only a few of us doing it in spare time so not as much content as we want to get up there one day but still it's been really fun to do. It encouraged me to do something on some of my darker days.
I'm also thinking more and more about writing a novel, one I've wanted to do for years and I figured seen as I seem to be writing again maybe it's time to give that a whirl.
Right I'm off to break diet rules and eat a cheeseburger and watch the next ep of Ben and Kate. Seriously sucked into it, who knows maybe I'll sit down tonight and start some writing. Any tips, words of advice or a nudge of encouragement are always welcome.
Do you think I'll make it to post #3? I really, I really hope so!
