E viva Espana


Yes, I've just returned from sunny Germany, oh, okay, Andalucia where the sun shone and the wind blew (but if you build a golf course on the top of a hill, then it's likely to get a bit blowy).

This was a time of R&R as the long suffering one played golf, and I sat by the pool, drinking enough agua con gas to float a battleship.

I took some knitting with me, but this is as much a picture as you're going to get, as it may become a pattern idea, and I don't want to jinx anything.

I also caught up with about half a dozen writing magazines that I hadn't got around to reading. This turned into a very good thing, as I feel quite fired up to crack on with the grand opus and, more importantly, I have discovered a significant flaw in DTD.

As I lay back on my sun lounger, proving that I really can knit (and purl) with my eyes closed, I realised that there was a problem with the characterisation of the protagonist. However, as I'm only one chapter in (still!) I can fix it before it happens. I just need to revise my synopsis and we're away.

To be honest, by the end of the week, I was getting a bit bored on my hols, but boredom is good for us, as it frees up bits of the brain and makes us creative...allegedly. Let's hope I can be even more creative as I plough through the resulting ironing!
