Daily Count Challenge to severina2001!

So I completely fell asleep on the couch last night before doing this, and when I woke up around 3am to stagger off to bed, I didn't really think about it either.

But before all that, I did actually have a super productive day. I got 1,028 words written of a exchange fic I have due soon, so that was nice!

And I now I pass the baton to severina2001 and wish you all the writing luck in the world!

Awesome Monday!

Here we all are again - ready and raring to go on another week. This morning was not an easy one in terms of getting myself out of bed - I was up late last night waiting for my daughter to get home from an Ed Sheeran concert, and then the alarm went off before I knew it... so by 11am I was feeling very ready for a Nana Nap, though of course I'm not allowed to take them at work! I did struggle to keep my eyes open for a while there, but thankfully was feeling a bit better after lunch.

It's a short week work-wise, in these parts, due to the Easter break. In NZ, Easter Friday and Easter Sunday are the biggest public holidays, with the majority of things closing down fully on them - the only other time that happens is Christmas Day! I must admit, I am very much looking forward to the 4 days in a row (as a public servant, I get Monday off too) without being at work! And my husband's birthday falls on Easter Sunday this year, so it's a big celebration at my house. The only downside to the weekend is that it's also the end of daylight saving here, so we will really be on the countdown to winter. For most of you it's the opposite, of course, and I wish you a very happy spring as I enter autumn!
