We had three extra kids here for most of the day, which, except for a few bouts of refereeing, meant that the children were entertaining each other very nicely, and consequently, I got more work done!
The list of jobs post-holidays now looks like this:
X amount of book reviews (X being an unknown value, but I’m pretty sure is currently <5) – FOUR reviews done today, and now my "read but not reviewed" pile is gone!
If house settlement is enjoyed, organise new aircon, freestanding dishwasher and perhaps pool equipment.
Marking – four assignments – got three done – one essay left to go
TPP jobs (Fictionwise, newsletter, Shiny 6) – Got New Ceres Nights finished, and some helpful ideas from layout friends might make it easier for the next lot…
WASLA newsletter – received president’s article today, and got my photos from the conference cleaned up and downsized.
Finish slushing and finalise Spec Fic for Kids lineup! – Pretty much done!
Edits on Spec Fic for Kids
Last Short Story reading – Plugging away – keep finding new things I want to read! Started Season 2 of Shadow Unit yesterday…
Aurealis reading – on track
Tidy and clear out spare room – Definitely getting visitors early November, so will get on it
New publishing project
Clean up shed (husband keeps chucking things in there – no rhyme or reason to it!)
Return packing boxes to removalist
Yearbook for school (supposedly to be at proof ready by week 3) – one more article received today – still about 12 or 15 outstanding.
I’m actually fairly pleased with how much I got done in the last two weeks, especially considering that three days were at the conference. Got some pretty important stuff done, the house looks fairly respectable, and a bunch of to do lists were knocked over – I’m even down to THREE emails in my inbox! Freaky… So, in all, a good break I think. We had some fun, got some jobs finished, good balance.
