Dust, it’s everywhere!

Lately, my life is all about DIY.

And to paraphrase Robin Williams in Aladdin, “Dust, it’s everywhere! Get used to it.”

This is me, demonstrating a somewhat cavalier disregard for basic safety, by forgetting to wear goggles. Nice, dusty eyelashes.

And this is one of the causes of the dust – a crazily cracked wall, which I dug out, filled, and then sanded. Cheaper than a plasterer, but a lot messier, and the finished product might not last as long. We shall see…

Balancing the renovation work with family life is okay, I just do it while they’re at school. But writing? It’s just not happening. Last week I didn’t even manage the 100 word Friday Fictioneers challenge.

Obviously, I need to come up with a plan. This renovation is going to be with us for months yet, so I need a daily (realistic) word count target, or my writing will just dry up.

I’m aiming for 500 words a day.

Now – just need to find my keyboard under that dust sheet…..
