TGIF Look Back – 30th March

Welcome to my first TGIF Look Back it just takes a few minutes: to play along, just answer the following questions with some Friday feeling…

FUNNY – What made you laugh this week?

READING – What were you reading this week?

INSPIRED – What inspired you this week? 

DREAM – What were you dreaming about this week?

ANGEL – Who was your angel of the week?

YUCK – What made you go ‘ewwww’ this week?
My TGIF Look Back…

FUNNY – Breakfast radio made me laugh a lot this week – to the point that I probably looked rather crazy laughing like a hyena on the way to work 🙂

READING – I’ve done very little reading this week, partly because I’ve been trying to concentrate on doing some writing and also because we’ve been preparing features for a major indie author event in May…So all this leaves me about 30 pages into The Passage…

INSPIRED – I’ve mostly been inspired to buy books this week – there’s been lots of interesting authors coming through our emails at aside from writing I’ve added a load more books to my Kindle TBR pile – so much for clearing it down! 🙂

DREAM – Very mixed, however, there have been lots of steep hills figuring in my dreams in various guises, whether I’m dream-driving or dream-walking…usually means that I’m preoccupied with a difficult decision to make as I find it an uphill struggle.

ANGEL – Angel / star of the week for me is a lovely little boy named Ted, he’s from Manchester and is just five years old. Currently he’s undergoing treatment for leukemia and has been helping a local radio station raise £50k in just one week for children in the same situation. The story of how he and his family have coped with his condition really touched me – there’s a little picture of him from yesterday on my facebook page – needless to say – I’ve sponsored him 🙂

YUCK – Anyone who knows me well will recall I’m not the best around feathery things – I don’t mind birds at a distant but close up with the flapping and everything? Just ewwwwww…Anyway – for work this week I had to go to an area of our building literally swarming with giant seagulls and pigeons – even between me and a pane of glass it gave me the heebie jeebies – that’s like Room 101 for me!

    The bird thing is great. Does it mean you don’t like talking parrots either?

    Funny – There is a video on YouTube where a young girl is tormenting a boy. It is filmed by the boy’s mother. The girl is saying she is going to marry the boy. The boy is very upset by this and the girl is clearly going to be right little madem when she is older. I am at work so can’t link to it but search for “little girl forces boy to marry” and you will find it.

    Reading – Stephen King’s 29.3.66 or whatever it is called. It’s got timetravel in it and I just know the paradoxes will annoy me.

    Inspired – Had a few more reviews for my latest book so, erm, that I guess.

    Can’t think of anything for the others.

      Sounds good – half a week of things 🙂 I’ve just started The Running Man and it’s good so far – no half-arsed, ill-conceived world building going on – some of the new dystopia by numbers books were getting on my nerves

      I’ve just found your you tube girlie (obviously our work internet has less protection than yours!) Have to say – this was how I got my other half down the aisle 🙂

    Yep – Bachman Books – I’m actually liking them better than Stephen King, which is completely strange
