Sincerest apologies to those of you who got spammed by a stoopid email apparently sent from me this afternoon - which presumably is any of you I've ever emailed. Ooops!

Andy has gone over my computer and can't find anything else odd, and has re-installed virus checkers etc. so hopefully this won't happen again. If it does, I guess I'll have to close down that account and get a new one, which would be a bit of a bother since I've got about 20 RP journals and various other things all attached to that address... *sigh*

So I just spent the last several hours without internet - typically on the evening that Andy is actually out of the house and the person I'm roleplaying Jack/Rani with (who's on EST and can only get online briefly at the same time as me each day) was actually around early. I therefore missed out on two hours' worth of Jack/Rani at a crucially interesting stage in their thread (i.e. they're about to have sex *g*) and am very, very annoyed!!!

On the good side, I have done a fair bit of writing today. Not, unfortunately, Master Plan (except a few words and a bit of fiddling with it) but it's related in that it's four drabbles set during the Master's defeat in LotTL. I'll probably post it tomorrow, because I need to re-read and possibly edit before I post and I'm too tired tonight.

Will be going to bed soon. Saturday morning dancing has moved this term from 10.45 to 9.00!!! So I'm going to have to get up at normal work time! :-(

I was going to do a Happy Christmas post last night but then I lost the internet so I just went to bed instead. So here it is this morning. Hope everyone has a fantastic day, whatever you're celebrating!

(And hope you're healthier than my family, who are all coughing and sneezing, and that you slept better too, which isn't hard. There is a very strong probability of napping this afternoon!)

Anyway. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] donutsweeper, who made my morning with her Chrsitmas present - this icon. A happy Jack icon! I only realised the other day that I didn't have any! Yay!!!!! :-)

Here I am, all sat down at my computer, child in bed, husband away, settling in for a nice evening of RP...

And the site's down. Grrrr.

Ah well, I guess I'll catch up on my flist and maybe my telly-watching instead.

Oh, and post this, which I snagged off [livejournal.com profile] karaokegal:

The Big Book meme )

25 out of 100. For someone who hasn't actually read a book in over a year (basically, since I got so involved with LJ – and then IJ – that I couldn't tear myself away from my computer in time to read before bedtime, I think I did pretty well on that! (Though admittedly, several were books I read as a child, either at home (e.g. Little Women) or at school.)

ETA: Knew there was something else. First draft of Master Plan Part 11 is off to beta. :-)

I'm really shattered today. I didn't sleep that badly - got about four good hours before needing the loo, then Jack woke up an hour later, then the cat started being a nuisance for the rest of the time - but I just have NO energy and NO patience and just really, really want to go back to bed.

Which I can't do for at least another couple of hours, when Jack has his nap. And in that time I actually have to do some physical things, like the washing and the washing up, so that we can go out this afternoon after nap. And then this evening we're going to Mum's for dinner, for Father's Day.

All I really want to do is curl up on the sofa.

Ah well. Maybe I'll get going in a bit. :-)

Oh, on the plus side, I wrote about 400 words of Master Plan last night when there was no-one around. It's getting there slowly. :-)

1. I'm downstairs on the sofa to avoid Andy's snoring and I can still hear him.

2. I'm too hot and I have restless leg syndrome.

3. PMT (oh yeah, forgot about that one, didn't I?) - I never sleep well at this time of the month.

4. I'm a bit worried about all the driving I've got to do, not so much tomorrow but Wednesday.

5. It's a long time since I spent a night away from home and I suddenly realised I hadn't thought about all the stuff I had to pack and do before I went, so my brain is busy busy busy.

Can't do anything about the first four, but at least I can sit here and make a list. And make notes for Mum, because she hasn't had Jack overnight for over a year and things have changed. And maybe then I'll get enough done that I can have a nap when Jack does before we go tomorrow.

Jack has a bit of a cold (i.e. he's snotty and coughing, but doesn't seem actually unwell).

I, however, am feeling really rotten, all snuffly and coughing and just - blocked up, in my face - and really dopey, to boot.

Therefore, I don't how long I'll be around tonight. I will probably be getting an early night.

1. I'm tired again. Stayed up too late role-playing, then kept getting disturbed by Andy snoring and Jack waking up and saying he couldn't find his cuddly book, then fifteen minutes later, when I was on the verge of getting back to sleep, wanting a nappy change... I am so sleeping on the sofa tonight. Andy can snore all he likes, and get up and look after Jack.

2. Amazingly, I seem to avoided the after-show cold, even though half my friendslist has it (get well soon, guys!). *crosses fingers*

3. Jack just stuck a twiglet in a fairy cake and pretended it was a candle to blow out. He's so cute!

4. I'm back to work this afternoon after having had nearly two weeks off. So anyone who wants to email me (e.g. those I'm role-playing with), I'll be on my work email (anna.funnell @ essex.gov.uk) from c. 12.00 to 5.00 today.

5. Huh. It's not often a post can be tagged both 'moaning' and 'happy posts'! *g*

Okay, so I'm back to being really, really tired again after a dreadful night. It wasn't Jack, who only woke up once, very briefly, after a nightmare. It wasn't Andy, who was downstairs on the sofa because we're both bunged up and snoring at the moment. It was partly my brain, which just would not shut up. And mostly the bloody cat, Minstel, who kept whumping against me and not giving me room and purring loudly and wobbling the bed as he washed and chewing plastic bags (yes, he's weird) and scrambling about under the bed and climbing up onto the window sill and just. Generally being bloody annoying.

So. Short morning and back to bed when Jack goes. So if I'm not around early afternoon, that's why.

Well, I had 9 1/2 hours in bed last night and I'm still absolutely knackered. I must have slept for about six hours straight once I finally got to sleep, but then Jack wanted a change at 6.00 and I just couldn't get back to sleep again properly afterwards, even though he didn't properly wake until 8.30. Busy, busy brain. :-(

So. Still not got much brain. But I'm determined to get my Angel/Jack fic posted today. I've worked too hard on it to miss the deadline just because I'm tired! Though at this rate, it's likely to only meet it by an hour or so. I don't expect to get it posted till after rehearsal this evening.

Don't know how much I'll be around for RP today. Probably not a lot. I have a lot of other stuff to do, and have to go into town with Jack again this morning. And fully expect to spend most of his nap-time sleeping. Or trying to.

Damn, I'm getting to use this icon a lot.

Cut for length and moaning )

OK, I'm going to stop moaning now and go and do the ironing, then begin the lengthy process of putting Jack to bed. And when he's finally down I'm hopefully going to watch Torchwood, if it's finished downloading in time!

Cut for moaning and TMI )

Speaking of writing, I now appear to have three fics actively on the go (none of which are my Finish-a-thon story) - Master Plan, a new Master/Doctor story, and now Jack's visit to Lorne pre-S1 which Morgyn requested last time I asked for prompts way back before Christmas - I suddenly got a bunny for that last night! :-)

I'm knackered again today. Drama was really good last night, but exhausting and of course it meant I didn't get to bed early - and then when I did get there, I couldn't get to sleep till about 12.45. And then Jack decided to wake up at five to seven this morning. Yeah. Happy birthday Mummy.

Also, the bath is leaking so I'm going to have to take Jack round to Mum's so we can both bath/shower AGAIN. And I've got a huge pile of washing up to do, and a huge pile of ironing. And no, nobody's going to be doing those for me.

On the plus side, I actually got my morning tea made for me. And DW S1 on DVD and JB's Just So album from Andy and Jack, and some sexy new kitchen scales from my parents - I'm getting the rest of their presents at my family dinner Saturday week (because Mum's prompting my old drama group's panto this week).

And I have my pills from the doctor. :-)

Oh, also, comment notifications are taking ages to come through, so if I don't reply to anyone anywhere, that's probably why!

ETA: I'm not reading anyone's Jack/Jack fics for the moment. I'm dying to, and I'll come back to the fest at some point in the not too distant future and have some fun reading them all. But right now I'd just make myself jealous of everyone who managed to make theirs work when I couldn't. Once I've got my own sorted out, then I'll read everyone else's.

Thank you so much to everyone who has rallied round on my last post - I feel incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful lot of friends here. I've never really had friends like you lot before and it's a little overwhelming, but definitely wonderful.

I've had a knackering day which I started tired anyway, so I'm going to bed in a minute.

But for anyone who was wondering, the folk dancing exams went well this afternoon and while I didn't enjoy them as much as I might usually, I at least didn't think about anything else for about four hours this afternoon, which was great. And the girl I went along early to partner in her exam gave me flowers to say thank you, which was really sweet. I've partnered a hell of exams over the years (my mum used to be the teacher so I was always there and I always knew the dances) but I've never been given flowers for it before. :-)

So it wasn't too bad a day, though the early evening was hard because I was too tired to have any patience for Jack playing up. And God knows how I'm going to get through tomorrow. But I'll try and do the 'one hour at a time' thing and I expect I'll get there. Don't really have a lot of choice, really. *g*

And I'll make an appointment with the doctor in the morning.

Disabling comments on this one so you don't all feel obliged to reply again when you've all already done such a great job on the other post. You can still talk to me on that one if you want. :-)

Love you all.

Second draft is off to beta and I have a few minutes (don't know how many) before Jack wakes up to look through my flist. All four pages of it. Hmm.

ETA: I'm starting at the top, not the bottom as usual. That way I may actually have a chance of talking to people 'live'! *g*

In other news, it's bloody freezing and I want the new part for the boiler to turn up RIGHT NOW please!

ETA2: I don't think my email's working very well. I don't think it's just the notifications, I think it's normal mail too. So tell me here if you've sent me anything you think I haven't got! :-)

I had loads of good bits going round in my head for my Two Men in a Pub fic overnight and I'm sure they're still floating around in there but I can't seem to get them out. Grrr.

Anyway, I have no time right now because I have to take Jack round Mum's so we can both have a bath/shower because even the immersion heater has failed now and we not only have no heating but no hot water at all!

Hopefully, he'll then have a really, really long nap because there's so much I want to do - write my fic, read the various fics that have popped up on my flist overnight (yes, Becky, Jen adn Melody, I'm talking to you!) - oh, and I also have to do some inputting of music onto Music Time for my old drama group which I've been promising for weeks and really, really need to get round to doing...

I think Jack's going to be watching a lot of tv today.

On the plus side, I did do the comments for two of the four feedback exchange thingies last night (one long, one short) so I'm halfway through that. Didn't get as far as NDF, though. I was just too knackered. Even more knackered today since I kept waking up every couple of hours during the night.

Ah well.

Off out in a min. Will try to catch up with everyone later.

The almost-inevitable show week cold has turned up. Plus I couldn't get to sleep last night - too hot, plus brain too busy - it was after two when I finally dropped off and then Jack wanted his nappy changed at 3.00. I just want to spend the whole day in bed. But I can't because Jack doesn't want to. :-(

And of course it's tonight that my husband, my Mum and her friend are coming to see the show. Grrr.

And here we are again. One good night I get, and one pain-free day. And then I go to bed and an hour later my face is hurting like hell.

Perhaps I need to try and sleep more propped up. But I'm a front-sleeper, so propped up doesn't usually = good sleep. Can't win.

I hate my sinuses. I should be asleep. I was asleep. For about an hour and a half. Then I woke up with screaming pain in my face. I've been having sinus pains for a couple of weeks now, as I always seem to around this time of year, and the doctor put me on antibiotics but I don't think they're helping - I think it must be something in the air not an infection - and it BLOODY HURTS.


I want to sleep.

(And I was so sleepy when I woke up with the pain that I misread the clock and thought it was 3:40 not 1:40 so I took some more paracetamol only 2 hours after the last lot. Oops.)
