I’ve just watched a great one off comedy drama special on BBC1 called Learners, written by and staring in Jessica Hynes and co-staring David Tennant working the complete opposite of the Doctor’s ‘visual charms’ with the most unflattering pair of glasses ever to feature on TV. Telling the story of Jessica Hynes’ character’s attempts to pass her driving test (oh so familiar to me, I’ve taken (and failed) so many driving tests I’ve forgotten how many I’ve taken) with David Tennant playing the geekish (in a completely and utterly non-sexy way) driving instructor, it was just a really lovely piece of TV guaranteed to make you smile on a Sunday night
Making me look forward even more if that was possible to the Doctor Who special on Children in Need on Friday!
As I predicted I would be at this point, I’m now behind on NaNoWriMo, I was working for ten hours yesterday (and although I know a lot of NaNoWriMoers obviously work, I’m principally a stay at home mum so going out to work for that day (it was to do with books though yesterday, see here for my blog about it) seriously interrupted my routine). So I have roughly five thousands words to do by the end of the day to catch up, I’m planning on doing it in little chunks and have done already just under 1k, so only another 4k to go.
Another problem looms on my horizon against my NaNoWriMo, Mr. Lacer has the week off to tile the bathroom, he’s already just knocked the first old tile off and now a musty swimming pool smell pervades the flat, although Mr.Lacer says he can’t smell it (although I do have a more sensitive sense of smell than he does, so he probably can’t but it’s a really unpleasant smell for me that gets to the back of my throat and makes me cough). So Mr. Lacer being off is going to interrupt my routine to and I’m behind on my prepping for a tuition student tomorrow, so everything is piling up against this project.
Having said that, at some point today I will have written more words on my NaNoWriMo project than my ‘proper’ project, a children’s story set in Ancient Egypt and I’ve been writing that for literally years.
