Out of Office

by | 1 Mar 2015

I’ve been beyond busy this week. So much so I almost forgot I had to write this. I’ve been in the water for nine hours (not including showers); have spent the weekend at a marathon of theatre (seven shows in two days – just finished the last one now). And in every spare moment I’ve been transcribing an interview with a woman who you’re going to meet in my new book. I promise you’ll be glad you have, she’s amazing.

Alongside this there’s been all the usual stuff – work, washing, worrying etc. Actually there hasn’t been enough washing this week (the laundry basket is overflowing and I’ve only got one pair of clean knickers left). With all this going on I nearly forgot that tonight is blog night and at this late hour I can’t think of anything scintillating to say. So will you forgive me for writing a blog out of office – let’s just say the pursuit of motherhood’s on holiday. She certainly needs one. Somewhere where the water’s warm and the weather’s sunny.

    How long to go until you swim the Channel, Superwoman?

    Sounds like you need a holiday!! And you don’t need to apologize for not blogging!

      I do need a holiday but that may need to wait until I’ve done my channel challenge! But if I get across I’m going to treat myself to a really really good one! Jessica x
