29th & 30th September
After a manic week I was fully prepared to spend a few days in the slow lane… what I wasn’t prepared for was a chest infection! I have had a cold since Friday, but realised I wasn’t getting any better and after several sleepless nights hacking and coughing, I went to see the Dr. I am now on antibiotics and praying I will feel better for my brother’s wedding.
I had a long list of writing I needed to plough through on Monday, I had a productive morning writing new material and starting a new poetry notebook, I also started working on the commissioned project for our performance at Birmingham Literature Festival on the 11th October. I also started editing a collection of poems as well as mind-mapping some more ideas for this project.
I wasn’t very well and almost felt like spending the whole day in bed, I had an early night instead and a lie in on Tuesday before a trip to the doctor before work.
I had also been in conversation with Rachel Green over the Arts all Over the Place Festival and performing some poems. Last night I was asked to host the main OPENING EVENT of the festival – of course, I said YES! It should be fun!
What an end to the month!
