Welcome to my blog!

I am a lefty. I write vertically, cannot use can-openers and was recently foiled by a right handed ladle (I will have my vengeance...) but more than this, I generally seem to approach life from a different angle. I appreciate that this may have nothing to do with being a lefty and may just be my own dysfunctionallity, but after earning the nickname 'Lefty-Flip' after a frustrating game of Guitar Hero, it seemed an appropriate title for this blog.

The shake-up continues!

Well doesn't time fly by when you're having fun! I can't remember a January I've not spent hiding under the duvet (or at least wishing I was).
House update - well the first house I went to see was a complete let down. It was tiny! Literally no room to swing a cat. Well, maybe Brian but certainly not Fatty Frances. Seriously, I could have opened the front door without leaving the sofa.
I have since found somewhere far more suitable and in a fit of frivolity decided to take it! I move in less than two weeks!!!
So I am now frantically packing up my belongings (including over 100 Harry Potter books - yeah yeah, I know I'm crazy...) and attempting to shop for furniture, because I don't actually own any!

In between boxes I have managed to squeeze in some writing... not sure this is the right time for a major rewrite of an entire section but that's what's happening! Ah well, I'm having a clear out of old junk, that might as well include crappy writing!

All in all, still got that lovely New-year-anything-is-possible vibe going.

Good times.


PS In more cryptic news, I have updated my twitter bio in an attempt to flush out any VFD'ers out there. If you know what I mean, then I don't need to explain - if not, keep on walking, nothing to see here...

New Years Resolution? To shake things up...

Happy New Year! That's not me well-wishing - it's a direct order! This new year better be a happy one dammit! I am determined to make good things happen this year, or at least make stuff happen... I can't be responsible for the results!

So lets take a look at my shambles of a life then.

Number one - the Job. Well after taking two and a half years to get my foot in the door, I don't dare rock that boat! Maybe I'll start a rumour that I'm getting promoted/a pay rise and see what happens...

Number two, I am determined to get a place of my own this year. Don't get me wrong, I love my housemates, I just love my own space more! Am very excited about this, so much so that I am actually going to look at a place tomorrow... will be back to update!

Number three - The Book. the second draft is nearly done, I swear! Trouble is it needs a 3rd... possibly a 4th... Still, what else have I got planned for January but to sit indoors, eat chocolate and write? Hopefully I'll be posting that the 2nd draft is done by February (if my porky fingers will still allow me to type by then)

Number four - my weary weary bones. I have an appointment at the hospital on Monday and am viewing this as a good thing as I am done feeling sorry for myself! Really hoping it's not arthritis, but will be nice just to know what's going on.

And that's all for now! I think that's plenty to be getting on with.

While I'm in this chipper mood I best get off and do some writing!

Ahh, Fran at one with nature!

Bye for now!
