My Mum returned with Max, so Mum and I have been catching up as well. SO good to have her here. And the weather has been sunny, so every day we've been out appreciating it.
Max has been pushing all the limits. A month with few rules, no school, and being adored and spoiled by all is very cool. Coming back to the routine, two pesky big brothers, early bedtimes and SATs exams next week has been trying, as I am sure you can appreciate.
While I was busy disappearing, my post 'Third World Stupidity' became very popular and got 4,000 views last weekend. There were lots of comments about how sad it is. People don't seem to realise that none of the things I spoke about are just sad accidents. Fires are lit. Rubbish is dumped. Animals are killed. I tried to reply to as many as I could. I also got a few emails and comments about how if I were really a Trini, I would understand... Or, I should really visit Trinidad and Tobago some day. Haha. Am I a real Trini? Am I 'English'? Do I even belong on this planet?
I'm working on some great projects these days. I have four exciting things to work on - not counting the part time day job, which continues to pay several bills and prevents me from wearing yoga pants every day, which is probably a good thing. I like to have a few projects going. My creative process sometimes grinds to a halt, and I find I can just walk away from the job for a few hours and work on the next thing. When I look at it again with fresh eyes I can see what needs to be done and carry on from there.
