Sushi At The Shinema?

Another supremely early start today, which was also coupled with the news that it plummeted to minus 6 degrees Celsius overnight. Not bad! All the streets and cars were iced up as I trudged through the city to work.

I need new shoes, though. The ones I have are developing thin-sole syndrome, which normally isn't a problem but with all the cobbled roads I have to walk across it can become a bit of a pain in the - well, pain in the foot, actually.

The family went to the cinema after work today. We went to see the new remake of Greyfriars Bobby. We got all our yummies from M&S before we went in and so instead of the traditional popcorn and Coke, I had Sushi followed by a flap-jack! It was only a quid for a wee selection tray and a bottle of sauce.

I don't want to tempt fate, but I think I could be about to start a trend with that one!

I managed to completed the revisions on Under the Skin and get them sent off to my editor at Wildchild. She expects the new issue to be available in around a week. Can't wait to see it published.

I drafted a new another article for Interactive Dad Magazine called Dads Are Kids Too. Definitely a topic close to my heart that one! I'll get it polished and sent away after I've heard back about the one currently on submission.

I made four poetry submissions to Zygote in my Coffee. It was a spur of the moment thing because I realised it had been a while since I sent them anything. I selected these four for their suitability more than anything else: Walking With A Demon, Swally, Disposable Pen and Boxes.

I know it's a short one today but I'm quite tired at the moment with all my early starts. I slowly burn out towards the end of the day and so I have to focus all my energy on actual writing, not blogging, at night.

I'm sure you understand, dear reader. And I trust you won't hold it against me.
