Life seems to be intent on stopping me from having any time to myself, which is when I write as well as sleep, eat and poo - okay, TMI.
I had the day off and drove over the county border into Devon. The reason for my quest - see below.
No one ever suggested that it was easy being a writer, though I always thought on BC it was easier than most places because of the friendly atmosphere. I'm not so sure anymore.
I don't believe in muses, writing is a cerebral thing and it's something I've always done.
Has anyone heard or seen anything of my compatriots, Alys and Ceri?
A blog on the Guardian based upon an article in the NY Times. I hope this is one trend that doesn't cross the pond, it's plain stupid and the parents should be prosecuted, it's tantamount to abuse.
Especially interesting because it's the number of kudos I appear to have in my account.
Got lumbered with a long phone call from my needy friend and haven't got time to do Bike tonight. Hopefully tomorrow will be easier.

A BBC4 film about the thespian couple who loved each other but couldn't live together. It was very well performed by Dominic West as Richard Burton and Helena Bonham-Carter as Liz Taylor.

On account of my 27th anniversary of changing my lifestyle and everything else, and for the ensuing sixth birthday of Bike on Tuesday.
Sorry, I'm entertaining a visitor and we went out for a long walk this evening - it was delightful, but by the time we got back I was late starting Bike and keep falling asleep as I try and write it.
Sunday is Bastille Day, the anniversary of the storming of the notorious prison in Paris which was one of the trigger points of the French Revolution and arguably, the French have been revolting ever
being one of the few intelligent life forms on this planet.
Been out watching hedgehogs in my garden then had to listen to an hour long phone call from my needy friend.
Which involved some walking there and back, plus a bike ride this morning against a strong wind. So, I'm just starting to scribble tonight's Bike, if I can stay awake.
