Invigorating

I really enjoyed the blog parties this weekend and meeting all you new people. It was great the way everyone dropped by my blog like going on a blog-pub crawl.

At 4pm this afternoon the sunshine and the fresh air beckoned. I'd spent most of the day indoors having challenged myself at the weekend to write a 6,000 word short story. The subject I've chosen is rather a harrowing one and it's quite emotionally draining and so far I've already written 3,000+ words.
It's based on that true story I read in a magazine article at the hairdresser's.

I donned my blue suede walking boots and jacket and set off on my usual 45 minute circular walk through the Devon countryside. I am so glad I did.

I felt so invogorated, as I passed the rushing river at Lydia Bridge. We've had some heavy rain yesterday and today, so the river was high.

  1. That walk sounded lovely! Today, instead of spending the day hunched over the keyboard the LSO and I had a picnic at Peak Hill and then went on to Sidmouth. It was wonderful. Fresh air and sunshine are such a good tonic.

  2. Hello, saw you at the BBQ thought I'd stop in, love the comparison to a pub crawl!! Just went on an actual bar crawl this weekend myself lol. Love the blog btw, I always like to see blogs from other countries as a United-statesian, it's fun to step outside the familiar.
