[metrics] | Just keep swimming...

I managed a few more words yesterday to bring the count up to 81,330 which isn't bad. I'm hoping to be able to spend a bigger chunk of time on it at the weekend after I've taken Mama Bear to the vets for her blood test to see how her thyroid pills are working/ not working. Certainly, the smells-of-hay misxture we've been adding to her food for her joints seems to be doing the job, so here's hoping that the thyroid tablets are too.

Things accomplished in fiction: We managed to use magic to heal a plant instead of turning it into a triffid - but the confidence that brought this about is going to cause trouble further down the line. Cheeky young not-yet-werewolves are cheeky.

Things accomplished in real life: day job work, read Trent Jamieson's Death Most Definite - {loved it. Great characters - Steven de Selby is quite a funny chap and he's a psychopomp. What a fantastic word. Psych-O-Pomp. You can really get your lips round it. Anyway, had to finish it before I went to bed last night because I had to find out what happened which means I'll definitely be going for book two when it comes out in 2011.} Also, did baked potatoes for tea with Colliers strong cheddar, Genoan ham, lime pickle (for me and chum #1) and brinjal aubergine pickle (that was just for me) and we rounded it off with strawberries and marscapone for dessert - YUM!

*pokes word-count bar* Do you plan to finish at 100,000?

Aww, I hope your Mama Bear's meds are working out for her!

Thanks! She's a lot more bouncy and she's lost weight which is a good sign that they're beginning to work. I should be getting a phone call from the vetinary today to tell me if she's on the right dose or not, so fingers crossed for that. Hopefully it'll be good news as no dog likes being stabbed in the neck once a month for a blood test. :-(

I'm aiming for 100K but I have to be honest and say that experience has showen that my naturaly stopping point is usually at least 10K beyond what I think I'm aiming for. ::sigh:: Thank God for editing and revisions, that's all I can say!
