Not a long Blog today, I just don’t really feel like it. Didn’t get to bed until 2 on Sunday afternoon (after having been up the whole of the night before) but slept right through until 8 this morning.
Not bad, 18 hours continuous sleep – for me anyway. I suppose I’d better tell you, but just before I went to bed, I tripped into the door downstairs. And no, I wasn’t drunk, so sorry to disappoint my critics! I suppose it was just a combination of no sleep, and overworking, and not taking enough trouble to avoid any pressure on my bad foot. Anyway, there was a sudden jolt of pain and I lost balance and crashed into the door downstairs. It must have made quite a noise as a guy downstairs came up to ask if I was OK. I was sitting on the stairs at this stage, half stunned or rather half knocked out.
“Yes, I’m Ok”, I told him, “Or will be in a minute. Who put that door there?!
“You don’t look OK”, he said. “You know there’s blood all down your face”.
I touched the pain in my cheek, and sure enough there was blood. Not much, but enough to confirm I’d hit the door with some considerable force.
So I decided to go to bed realizing that it was just the body’s way of telling me it had had enough!
I was just about falling asleep, when there 5 distinct raps on the wardrobe door. The light was off and the curtains drawn so it was pretty dark. I just told ‘it’ to go away as I was very tired and I turned over and went to sleep. Its not the first time this has happened actually. The other night when Gareth was here (about 10) the door just opened by itself quite distinctly and you just knew this wasn’t due to any wind. You should have seen Gareth’s face; it was a picture!
Well, I had to go up the road this afternoon, and had a proper chance to examine my face. The force had taken some skin off, and I couldn’t really disguise it. So I just went out and tried to ignore it.. Well, I did ignore it but several other people noticed. So there you are. One injured ‘witch’ with quite a tender head!
But there was some good news just before this. I was emailed the finished book cover, and it looks really good. Even got a bar code inscribed at the bottom, though I understand I still have to get this registered before it can work. Around £30, or something. I’ll certainly be worth it for shops; although mail orders don’t really matter.
What else is there? Well, nothing really, as if that’s not enough!
Going to have a quiet night tonight. Think I deserve it!
For the moment,
