It is sunday and it is supposed to be a day of rest so today I think that is exactly what I am going to have. I had a very long lie. My kids got up late due to it being the school holidays so this morning was bliss. I lay in the heat and comport of my own bed and let the stress of yesterday wash away. As I am such an insular person I tend to live in my own wee bubble with my kids and our dog. I go out to walk with my friend but we rarely see folk on our travels.
I talk to people at my work – colleagues and customers. I walk my kids to school and pick them up and at these times I usually have my headphones in with music blaring because I am not very good at doing the small talk with other parents. I don’t really want to talk to them either. I spend a huge amount of time with the thoughts in my own head. I am oblivious to most things as I go about my daily chores.
At the moment I am very happy that this is the case. The talk going on around me very rarely reaches my own ears. I am still in my bubble and still very happy. My kids are the most important people in my life and as long as they are all okay I will be fine. If people who were once my friends now stop being then it meant they were never really the friends they made themselves out to be.
I feel like I am being handed a wealth of material for my writing. I am compiling images, scenarios, situations and quotes for use at further dates. I love to watch people, examine their movements, temperaments and behaviours and try to use that to spur on my writing. So when all these things happen in my life I am like a sponge and soak up whatever happens.
Here to some excellent writing material.
