Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 172 – Rest


“How beautiful it is to rest, and do nothing afterward.


Thanks, Spidey!

Yes, I’m still in rest mode, and have really done nothing productive this last week, being on half term too!

Actually, I lie.

I haven’t been creative on my blog, though I have been reading posts and interacting.

I have attended two barbeques (one at ours, one at a friends), been to the cinema, upgraded my phone (new Huawei P20 Pro – it’s lovely!), seen two cricket matches Lil Man played in (he was captain in one too!), taken the kids on two playdates, and watched ALL the available Black-ish episodes! I’ve read books, watched films, and spent time with my children and husband.

And, a biggie… I have decided to enter my novel into a competition. It’s a First Novel Competition, and if successful, I could be represented by a renowned agent, and be published by a traditional publisher! Baby steps, but I have spent an age, the last couple of days writing and tweaking the synopsis, and giving a good brush up of the first 3000 words.

But I have really relaxed. I have not thought about work either, and that is a good thing, as, going forward, it is going to be a really busy last term of the year, with new student home visits, and assessments for the old, report writing and organising for the new year…

One day of relaxation, then work stress will hit again, and I will be back, blogging properly soon too, just not quite yet…


Chillax Peeps, I am!

Happy Sunday!

      Thank you Chuck 😊 I’m enjoying my chillaxing time, knowing work is going to get harder too… Reports, preparation for next year, home visits and assessment… so much to do! I’ll be counting down to the summer holidays!
      And all the while feeling glad I’m busy as the results to the competition don’t come in until September!

    You are not taking baby steps – you are taking giant leaps. Entering your book in a first novel competition is a biggy and it takes faith in yourself and some bravery to do it. I am sure you will do well and hope that the prize will be yours! 🥇

    Rita your posts are always a breath of fresh air.
    Can’t wait to hear how you did in competition.
    I’m glad you took some relax time. Sometimes all the words in our heads get clogged up in a lump and we have to rest until they start spilling out again. They’ll flow again- have a great non-stress week

    We all need that moment to recharge. Someday I will see a cricket match. I will be clueless mind you, I’m from the states, but I will cheer anyway and listen to the experts. I love a crowd.

    Good luck on your novel. Win or lose you had the courage to enter and that is something many people do not have. Good for you.

      Thank you so much Bryan for your encouragement!
      I’m pretty clueless when it comes to sports but I’ll support my son!
      I’ll stay confident with my novel. I’m sure it will get published somehow! 😁
