I'm a 1661 woman - sixteen from behind, sixty one from the front! I'm of the baby boom generation. Loved the fab sixties - which I experienced in London - I was a flower child - thought love would change the world - brought my children up in the country - back in London for the 2nd summer of love in the eighties - danced all night again - wonderful! Now in Devon looking forward to the adventure of old age - bring it on! hahaha

OMG - 21 days! That's three weeks!

I'm supposed to be writing essays
but my blog looked out of date with "Happy Birthday RW" on it -
haha any excuse to get away from my desk for a while.

I'm off to Australia in THREE WEEKS now and I can't get my head round it because I'm struggling really hard to get my study course finished. I've had to write a million trillion essays (OK slight exaggeration there) and I still have loads to do before I go away.

I can't even get to see my family because I'm working so hard (although Dons did rescue me and drag me off to the movies last night - I enjoyed it sooo much).
I must go ................

We saw "The Devil Wears Prada" which was a light and fluffy film -I enjoyed it - just what I needed - it did not involve any use of the brain! A lovely evening out in good company.

Yes, Trac, wish you could come Sweetie! :o}

Oh wow, lucky you. Now get on with those essays!! You'll be wasting time writing yourself little timetables of when you will write each one, when you will break for coffee etc and then you will have to carefully colour the timetables in, decorate them beautifully, find places to hang them, go and look at them every ten minutes to check you are doing the right essay and haven't forgotten to go for coffee blah blah.

Now get writing.

Oh dear, I've just wasted another 5 mins of your time by writing such a crappy long comment, haven't I?

hahaha yes kitty, I'm sooo good at procrastinating - aren't we all?

I see lots of little jobs that I've been meaning to do for ages and they all seem preferable to getting on with my writing.

I hop up and down from my desk like a yo-yo, having to drag myself back every time.

OK Wendz, so it's you, me and Trac going to Oz so far. Anyone else coming with us?

Part 18

Nancy saw into the starlight and saw the days passing one by one. The soft head of one who studies, looking into her books. The thick pen-lines of knowledge that lasts forever. And it made Nancy smile with delight. Her fingers tingled with the move-on bug.

Now go to part 19.
