Normal is nice
It's been a week of drama and tears and emotions. A good friend lost her father this week and my heart breaks for her pain and loss. Work is still a shamozzle of change and disruption which affects everyone caught in it's wake.
It's hard knowing people will go with the changes happening and to feel any joy that at least your own position is safe for now.
I haven't written nearly enough this week - drama can sap your energy and creativity.
I took another look at my website tonight which has frustrated me for over a week because I couldn't get it to link to my 'purchased' domain name and then all of a sudden it worked. Not sure exactly how I created the magic that made it fall into place but who am I to question it. A little bit more tweaking to do with it and then all is good.
My book has been steadily selling this week, 6 - 7 sales every day since the promotion last weekend. I finished up with 2247 downloads from the promotion as well. So it was definitely a success in getting it out there. While I'm not going to become a millionaire over night at least the first step in getting my work read has been achieved.
Today at least was a day of ordinary, I'm liking ordinary a lot at the moment. Had my grandson last night and he woke up this morning in a gorgeous mood and full of energy. A happy smiling little face and laughter is a lovely way to wake up. Today hubby and I went and bought a new fridge and a television for the kitchen. Spending money is always fun.
Mammoth job cleaning out the old fridge (which isn't really that old, but just a stupid set up) I will never buy a side by side set up fridge again. So that one has gone out to the shed for a drinks fridge and my new one arrives on Monday. So also had to clean out the old, old fridge (the original drinks fridge). Can't believe the dust and grot which accumulates under and behind a fridge.
Then I had a long nanna nap this afternoon which was sorely needed after the week that was. Which is also why at 11.15 tonight I am still wide awake. Woke up from my sleep and did all my housework so the house is spotless and all my washing is done.
A normal, uneventful day is just what I needed. Normal is nice.
Hope your week has been a good one, or at least your weekend is.
