1. I bought new pens for editing... so many colours. Although, at the moment, I am writing on my laptop - I don't have any hard copies to edit. But I will, soon.
2. I saw the most beautiful coloured leaves on my way to work this week. But sadly, I forgot to take photos. They were golden, russet, yellow... colours I wouldn't normally associate with a British autumn.
3. After a couple of weeks' feeling a bit poorly, I'm finally getting better. Now I just feel a bit weak - and my lifts at the gym have taken a bit of a dive. Something to aim for next week... I also ordered some new gym gear. If in doubt, buy shoes right?
4. While Hubby and the kids went to see Spectre, I had a pyjama day and wrote a convincing first draft of a ghost story. The next day, when I re-read it, not so scary. Must try better!
And finally, 5. I saw the trailer for the New Year's Day episode of Sherlock, and it looks brilliant!
