A Week in the Life of an Author/Freelancer/Stationery Shop Owner ft. Chronic Pain



Up. Walk. Coffee.


Do some client work try some of the yoga videos on the Heapace app. Figure it’s good to mix things up? Some of the moves (?) are the same as in Pilates, but I don’t know what a pigeon pose is meant to do.


Drop off some more stock at the pop up shop. Buy a bath bomb in solidarity with the other makers. Chat to one of the organisers about The Value of Art.


Package up a couple of shop orders, pop to the post office and drop in on my nan on the way back.


Lunch and Maggie’s seminar.


Remember my resolution to stop feigning productivity mid-afternoon and catch up with Catfish. Every time I think there can’t be another ‘type’ of catfish, there’s another type of catfish. Bonkers. I love it.


More seminar, work on the Do Something Directory, have dinner.


More seminar. There’s so much to go through! I am inspired.


The Hobbit is on. I don’t normally go for big sweeping epic films, because I don’t like sitting still for more than an hour (my joints get stiff and when I stand up, all you can hear is clicking. That’s not even muscle, is it, that’s bloody bones). Anyway, the seminar has put me in the mood for a proper story with character arcs and subtext.


God Tolkein was good at his job. Bed.

I know this is the wrong series, but I DON’T CARE

  1. I saw the caterpillar infested bush last week and wondered if you’d seen it too! It’s similar to the box caterpillar (which almost killed off our box hedges last year), but with no particular target plant – I’ve since seen the same caterpillar infestation in a rose bush elsewhere locally! Anyway, I enjoyed reading about a week in your life – very interesting! 😊 x


    1. Huh, I’ll have to look them up. I know there’s a type of insect (insect? Or maybe a spider, I can’t remember) that covers everything in gossamer. They look very cool/creepy in graveyards.

      Ahh thank you! It was unusually interesting. Most weeks are me at my desk working on one thing, then me at my desk working on another thing, and then multiple cups of tea and some walking!
