It’s the first week back at work after the Christmas holiday and I’m emerging from my chrysalis of cheese, crisps and long lie-ins. After two lazy weeks, I’m off the sofa and back in the office.
I miss the sofa. Not to mention the lie-ins.
Those early mornings when the alarm jolts you awake for work never feel as awful as they do in January, when it’s dark and cold outside.
It’s been a long week so far and I’ve forgotten half the things I did last year, but I’m slowly edging towards the weekend.
Since the new year began, I’ve definitely been feeling something different, more urgent. This is the year my book comes out and I’m making plans.
I’ve been working on a new website and thinking about how best to promote the book. It’s all a bit overwhelming and I’m trying to keep my focus, and stay positive.
Maybe, in amongst all this, I’ll be able to pick up my new manuscript and start writing again. Here’s hoping!
