A Complete Waste of Time

I was going to title this "She's baaaaaaacccckkkkk" but didn't.

Surgery worked great, I am back on my feet (though there is some residual pain--nothing like it was), my garden is growing nicely and I hope to start some renovations on my house soon. Finances are pretty tight, so I have to take that slowly.


I am going to take my granddaughter to see her daddy in the UK in July and my daughter-in-law knows I am a big Torchwood fan and so they've added a trip to Wales to the itenerary and I am so excited.

Passports are expensive.

So are 5k-mile plane tickets.

So the belt has to be so tight I can hardly breathe.


I am just about ready to start writing again. I'm afraid Fred (my muse) has suffered very badly due to heavy pain, heavy pain killers, surgery and physical therapy and a long list of other things, including getting used to being retired, with no immediate incentive to do anything in particular. I have started writing again, however, and hope to have the last chapter of What happened to my life completed soon and all remaining chapters uploaded to Epic Proportions soon. So don't way you weren't warned.

Well! It will do you good to travel after all your miseries.And if you get to Cardiff, you must go to Ianto's shrine. Snivel a little. Take pictures. Stand around looking bereft.Tentatively read the fading relics: weather tattered love notes and sympathy cards, desiccated wreathes with words of condolence.Maybe leave your own tear smudged message of unwavering devotion. Enjoy!

And if you also find yourself in Terry Pratchett territory, tell him I love him. Him diamond.

Where does Pratchett live? I worship him. Him diamond indeed. And yes we will probably visit the memorial.

I was going to title this "She's baaaaaaacccckkkkk" but didn't.

Yes, probably for the best. :)

I MISSED YOU!!!! I am so glad to hear your surgery went well and your pain is less than before.

Yeah, those plane tickets are killers. They're the main reason I have to skip a UK trip this year.

I am so excited that Fred is back on the mend and the two of you will be writing again.



I came back for you.
*significant pause
All of you.

Oh, and

* returns smishes with feeling

Aw! *smishes with no less feeling but carefully so as not to break you again* Because I'm pretty sure the internet would hunt me down and kill me.

Nice to hear you are doing better!!!

Cardiff is so worth it (and small tip, the stone to stand on is the one WITHOUT chipping - oh yes, I managed to get that wrong first time)

and so glad you're doing better

I was looking to see if "Memory of the Just" had been updated yet and was thrilled to find it had been completed. Yeah, I know. Sloppy reading on my part because it had not been completed and I began to wonder, not for the first time, what had happened to you. I love your stories and read most of the available material in just a few days. You are among my favorite writers in the Torchwood fandom and I am so happy to learn that you were on the mend. I hope your wellness continues and that you are doing better and better every day.

I look forward to reading you once more if decide to write again. Whether or not you do, I want to thank you for all the pleasure you have provided me.

Be safe and take good care of yourself.

Well, a stint on heavy pain killers made my muse go away for a while and I have been going through a massive change in my life (retirement, among other things) which has disrupted my need to write quite a bit. Yes I do intend to continue, and have been getting closer to it the last few weeks. I can't promise when, though. I am getting used to the changes now, and finding myself thinking about my unfinished stories quite a bit.

I am glad you have enjoyed them. It means a very great deal to me that you do.
