No way will you do 40 posts by Easter – said DH. Now the last time he laid down a challenge it was a month before our wedding. And it was another No way comment. No way will you lose a stone before we marry. To his credit, he did add – not that you need to. That time we put money on it. He hadn’t allowed for the effortless 7 lbs any bride loses in the week before she’s wed and I collected £100. His comment this am was flippant and not said as a challenge though it did motivate me to squeeze this post in tonight. I’m going to grade my days – maybe with a colour, a symbol, a score or an emoticon. Though I don’t always post late in the day so that won’t always work. I could base it on that moment in time.
Last night I reached under my bed and gave my book ‘The artists way’ a reassuring pat. That was enough. Contact made. Back for more another day. And here’s another book I’m eager to get in to my stable: Now, Discover Your Strengths: How to Develop Your Talents and Those of the People You Manage. It came as a recommendation months ago and has stayed buried in an email. I ordered it today (applause). It could have been with me tomorrow. But I get free p & p by waiting a week. It will get a better reception then.
