Well, my story from the Soulmate Exchange has now been made non-anonymous, so I have posted the link for anyone who may want to read it.

It's called Keeping the Faith - Willow/Faith.

Still editing my entry for Not For Prime Time but it's almost ready.

Treated myself to a pack of peas in their pods (so delicious) so I'm going to watch some TV and have a relaxing evening.

I'm glad it's cooling down (we're in a middle of a heatwave) as it's playing havoc with my sleeping at night.

I want to wish all the Father's out there a Happy Father's Day. My father was quite spoilt today, lol. Took him out for lunch, then a lovely drive down the coastal road around West Fife.

It was also the first time I had been under the Forth Rail Bridge, which was a beautiful sight.



Under Forth Rail Bridge

Today I managed to finish my first draft for the Not For Prime Time Exchange, so I'll be spending the rest of the weekend editing my work.

Up to episode 9 of Orange is the New Black season 5, starting to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine, noticed a new show coming onto Netflix called Glow so might give that a try.

Trying to get back into cooking but my depression has been kicking my butt lately as well as my IBS problems once we get better weather it'll help.

I might start some of my cross stitch projects again as it will contribute to keeping my mind busy.

Finally started writing my story for Not For Prime Time Exchange, so I hope to have a first draft ready by the end of the week.

Managed to sprain my wrist, so it's going to be a challenge to write but I'm going to persevere.

Decided to buy a new laptop but don't know which one yet, will be doing my research to see what's available at a reasonable price.

Watching Orange is the New Black season 5 (up to episode 5) and Private Eyes (season 2 ep 2).

Must have the sound turned up to get fully effect, lol.

As you can tell from the subject heading, we had a thunderstorm on the east coast of Scotland. I'm normally okay with them, but my dog Sami is not quite so brave. She hid in the bathroom until it was over, the poor thing so tonight she is getting ham in her dinner as a treat.

At least it's not so muggy now so I might catch up on my sleep, lol.

Don't you hate it when you get a certain song stuck in your head, totally my fault as I was watching the Lion King earlier so now I've got Hakuna Matata running through my head, lol?

Need to get started on my assignment for Not For Prime Time Exchange, but got most of it planned out so hopefully will start writing tomorrow.

Today I was sorting through some old clothes and found my Star Trek The Experience t-shirt from the Las Vegas Hilton. I went in 2000 when I was 20 (one year too young to drink, lol) and with my younger sister who was just 17. I loved the museum bit and really enjoyed the ride with the Klingons. It wasn't until years later they added the Borg (I really wish I could have gone back to go on that version but was to late). I even bought my sister a Borg teddy which she tells me is still one of her favourites.

Was supposed to be editing my story for the Soulmate Exchange but It's too warm here tonight so I'll have a lazy Sunday night, lol.

Visited my parents on Saturday and took this picture from the house, It's the new Queensferry Crossing bridge over the Forth river. I hope to get a better one with all 3 bridges in the near future.



Almost caught up on Lucifer and now started to watch a show called Private Eyes.

I am now glad to be feeling better and just in time as it was my dad's birthday yesterday. We had a quiet day together just catching up and took my mum and him out for dinner.

He is now quite the tech savvy guy as he signed up for Netflix and was showing off by watching Star Trek Into Darkness on his big screen TV. I wasn't going to argue, I mean any excuse to watch Star Trek is OK in my book.

Nearly finished my fic for the Soulmate Exchange (over 2,000 words at the moment and counting) and will hopefully start Not For Prime Time challenge soon.

Sorry

A short message to say sorry for not posting much the last few days. I seem to have caught a sickness bug and I've not been well enough to be online much. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I will be back to normal and ready to post again.

Mostly had a quiet day today but I managed to get a lot of writing done, almost 2,000 words on my soulmate exchange assignment. Luckily it's not due till the beginning of June, so I've got time to go through it again and change things.

Still, spring cleaning, It's amazing how much you accumulate over the years. I found a Big Bang Theory Lego kit that my sister gave me last Christmas so that's another thing to add to my winter list, lol.

TV Catchup

So finally finished the first season of Lucifer and about to start season 2, was glad to hear about it being renewed. I really enjoyed it and looking forward to many more seasons, :).

I was sad to hear about APB being cancelled as it was a good show and wasn't given enough of a chance to prove itself. Another season may have given more viewers i.e. those who used to watch Bones a chance to find the show. Or those in other countries like myself, who don't get to watch the show at the same time America does. This is why I've stopped watching a lot of new shows until I know that it's going to be more than one season.

Thinking about starting a new cross stitch project - Cut Thru' Haunted House so that will be interesting as it's been a while since I've sewed.

I decided to have a late spring clean this week and hopefully, this will get me in the writing mode. So far I have found a couple of models that I haven't got round to building yet, which means come winter I will be busy. One is the Enterprise NX-01 and the other is Voyager.

Nipped into Asda to get some shopping done and left Sami in the car, when I came back she was in the front seat so looks like I have my own driver, lol.








Decided to treat myself to a Raspberry Ripple Iced Cooler and it was delicious so glad to have one as it was a warm day today.

First happy birthday to [personal profile] dreamy_dragon73 and I hope you had a nice day. :)

As it's unusually warm here I've been out in the garden and not doing much. I hope to get some writing done in the next couple of days, but we'll wait and see, lol.

Also started to play a new hidden object game Stranded Dreamscapes 3, I've been playing them for quite a while and feel they help with the depression as it enables me to focus more and therefore I am now able to do other things I couldn't before.

Slowly catching up on watching Lucifer (I'm still on season 1) as well as People of Earth.

If anyone wants to read any of my other fiction I post here badger79

Let's see what the next week brings. :)

So today I received my assignment for the Not for Prime Time Exchange (due in July) and as well as working on my fic for the Soulmate Exchange due in June it should keep me busy for a while, lol.

Do any of my new friends know of any beta readers for when I've written the first draft?

Also, summer seems to have arrived here in Scotland as it was quite warm this afternoon, my dog Sami and I enjoyed playing in her paddling pool for a while. :)

So I had a birthday yesterday and want to thank both [personal profile] mr_picard and [personal profile] mooseygirl for their lovely birthday greeting, it was kind of you to think about me and I'm glad to have such nice new friends. :)

As it's a bank holiday weekend here in Scotland, I'm having an extra birthday dinner on Tuesday as I'm hoping it will be quieter then, lol.

I got the box set of Star Trek: Enterprise the full series so I'm going to be binge watching that for the next week or so.

EDIT: Also found out I share a birthday with Kate Mulgrew although not my favourite captain she's probably my second after Picard. :)

So today I cooked an Arbroath Smokie for the first time, feeling proud of myself and it tasted delicious.

Wonder what I could try next?
badger79: (Default)
So I'm able to have a few minutes to myself this afternoon and I put on TNG. The episode Disaster was on so I'm happily watching away and then my sister joins me. Now although more of a Star Wars fan she does like Star Trek so I thought no more of it. We get to the point Worf is assisting Keiko deliver her baby and she is now in stitches laughing so hard (OK so it's kinda funny). But then she turns round to me and says I think you're a Klingon in disguise as you want to fight everyone (nearly true,lol).

Sisters!
