What I did this (so-called) Summer



According to Facebook, it has been some 22 days since I posted anything on my Books by Jon Sayer page, which means that it has been that long since I wrote a blog post. The days of (not-really) summer seem to have flown by, and I have started to ponder what I actually did in those 22 days.



Here’s a list:

  1. Made a lot of tea and coffee. And boiled dozens of Kelly Kettles (well, OK, two actual kettles half of a dozen times).
  2. Opened and helped to drink quite a few bottles of wine. I mean, I’m kidding, of course only water for me.
  3. Been to the bottle bank to recycle all those bottles of wine I had absolutely nothing to do with drinking.
  4. Over the course of a second (around midnight) last week, became one year older. Oddly, in that second, everything started to ache just a fraction more than before.
  5. Had a trek to the cinema to see a Star Trek – from my house, that cinema feels like it is in a galaxy far, far away, along with a different sci-fi franchise.
  6. The Recycling Plastic Locally project has made some progress in that now almost all the wiring for the temperature controller is done and I am going to do a test melting quite soon, if only to try to use up the almost (that word again) full bucket of chopped up milk cartons I now have.
  7. I did some animations – 2 in particular were satisfying to complete because I did the music for them as well as the pictures. Check them out here and here.
  8. Photographed some wildlife in the form of moths and butterflies in our Limery and fruit cage.
  9. I added about a thousand words to my novel. I know – rubbish. I promise to do better.

So, that’s why I haven’t posted. Not one but nine excuses. Plus I have a note from my Mum. Well, the Snail’s Mum. And it’s really a birthday card rather than a note.


…and, er, more moths

  3. Love the Moth pics, Jon – and a belated ‘Happy Birthday’ to you, too 🙂

    1,000 words added, hey? Good for you! {{{cracks the whip only very slightly}}}

    When you try the plastics thing, do film it, won’t you?

    And, talking of films, I love the 2 new VaarkLife films! 🙂

    P.S: you really are a master of hyperbole, aren’t you? Lol
