I had lunch with Ellie Swoop in our favourite café (again I hear you say – yes we do have a lot of lunches). As usual we put the world to rights, whilst enjoying a skinny latte and delicious food. Today I had carrot soup and Ellie had scrambled egg on toast.
Ellie and I were pondering what the name for a male harem would be (not that she’s got one you understand or at least not since she recently declared exclusivity!) We discussed lots of writing things, including our visit to the office (Sainsbury’s café) tomorrow morning. We are going to get much more serious about editing our novels. We brainstormed my blog and the sort of subjects I could cover over the next few weeks. Ellie is an ideas person, so it was really useful. Hopefully you can enjoy the fruits of our deliberations shortly.
The café has a second hand bookshelf with proceeds going to charity and of course I came home with three titles; Charlotte Bingham’s Daughters of Eden, Frank McCourt’s Angela’s Ashes (which is recommended for my course) and Zoe Heller’s The Believers.
I wanted to get out this lunchtime as I was feeling strange. Hubbie has been home for a while and I’ve got used to having him around, but he started a new deal in Paris today. He’ll be working Monday to Friday in France for a while and once I settle down this will mean more writing time, but for now I am just missing him.
