It’s time for another A Day in the Life post! If you don’t know, A Day in the Life is a link-up which Georgie runs, where you write about your day. I’ve been at work all day again, so I was very surprised that I was able to come up with substantial answers to these questions. It’s amazing how much actually happens in one day!
What was one thing you did this morning?
Bought an almond croissant and ate it at the bus stop. I can only buy croissants from self-serve bakery counters, because I’m not fully sure how you’re supposed to say “croissant”. This is probably something they should teach in school, to save me from embarrassing myself in public.
What was one thing you achieved today?
Writing 2000 words towards my Camp NaNoWriMo novel. I didn’t explain Camp NaNoWriMo properly in my previous blog entry. It stands for National Novel Writing Month, so you spend the month writing a novel. The usual goal is to write 50,000 words (that’s what I’m aiming for), but I think you can set your own challenge. I’ve actually been managing to meet my word count for each day, so I’m really pleased with that.
What was something you were not impressed with?
This morning I got to my bus stop early, realised I’d forgotten my lunch and coffee mug so risked missing the bus to run back home in the rain to get it. Then the bus didn’t show up for five minutes, so I started walking to get a different bus and an almond croissant. Then the bus I was waiting for went past me.
What were you doing at 4:25pm?
Standing at the bus stop with water in my shoes. Not fun at all.
How was the weather?
Wet. It rained for the majority of the day, which meant I had to put my overly large hood up and guess which way the bus stop was. I can hardly see anything when my hood’s up, which is probably why I almost walked in front of a bus this morning. So good at life.
What will you do before you go to bed?
Think about all the chocolate I could be having if I hadn’t given up chocolate for April. I want chocolate. I want it now.
What four things made you happy today?
- Doing a full rendition of ‘Under the Sea’ for Andy while he played Fallout 4. I am the best backing track to gunfire and apocalypses.
- My ham and cheese panini at lunch today.
- Andy bought me soya milk, so I can have my Special K in the morning. It’s the little things.
I’ve been posting my word counts a lot on Twitter, so if you follow me on there you’ve probably seen enough of this, but I am really, truly enjoying the experience. Writing makes me so happy.
How was your day?
