Today is my birthday!
I had a nice day. We drove out into Derbyshire to see some countryside and stopped off at the Moorlands pub on the way, which is a fabulous place to eat a carvery. I LOVE a roast dinner so an easy choice to make about where to eat on my birthday. Roast Turkey and Pork. Both were delightful.
Spring has definitely sprung.
There was a cool breeze, but when the sun graced us with its presence it was a nice day all round. It felt good to be out in the fresh air.
I’m a third of the way through the third draft of I Can See You. I finished the 10th chapter last week and I’m now on another 3P break.
Print, pause and polish.
Then it’s full steam ahead to get through the next 30,000 words before the end of the month. My rough deadline for finishing this draft is the end of April.
And yes, I have done some writing today. I polished a couple of chapters this morning and plan on doing another couple later this evening. Just another day. With cake!
Some interesting facts about the 4th March:
Born on this day include American footballer Landon Donovan, Liverpool Legend, Kenny Dalglish, British actresses Tamzin Merchant and Patsy Kensit, American actresses Stacy Edwards and Patricia Heaton, UK Comedian Tim Vine and to add a bit of culture, Vivaldi was born on this day in 1678.
One of my favourite comedy actors, John Candy, died on this day in 1994.
In 1789, the US Constitution came into effect following the first meeting of the US Congress in New York.
In 1918, the first case of Spanish flu is alleged to have started ahead of the devastating pandemic. Happy thought.

Cheery things happen on this date!
May you all enjoy your 4th March and CAKE all round!
