madelinekelly: freaky bug-eyed alien fractal (Default)

Last year I kept a very basic "what I did today" diary and, after a bit of tallying up, here are the results:

1 wedding
1 complete -- albeit rubbish -- draft of the pig story
3 funerals
18 days of illness (15 of which were the Cold That Wouldn't Go Away in January)
19 crafty items made**
20 evenings out at the pub
21 migraines*
32 trips to the allotment***
91 walks along the coast, through glens, up hills, by rivers, through the grounds of stately homes, etc
66,000 words of fiction written/rewritten


------------
* The diary turned out to be more useful than expected, since it showed me what should've been obvious all along: I get a migraine with every period. (I get migraines at other times too, but only if I've missed so much food that I'm painfully hungry.) Since discovering this I've taken extra care to eat properly during my periods (you know how it is (if you're female), bad cramping puts you off eating, doesn't it?) and, although the migraines haven't gone away, they've been a lot less severe. Still on the subject of periods, I noticed that the cramps were getting worse every month, and had resigned myself to ever-increasing pain until the menopause. But Matt and I switched sides of the bed in the autumn and since then the cramps have dwindled to a manageable throb. Hurrah!

** Photographs coming in ensuing entries.

*** And, in case you thought keeping an allotment was glamorous and fun, here's a picture of the utter bloody shambles that is our shed. I promise you I wasn't holding the camera at a funny angle. Clearly, this year's allotment project will be to get a new shed.
