Dare I mention the 'E' word....'Election' she whispers, peering over the ballot papers. We are officially ' Hung'...Parliament, that is. Monday and the PM has announced he is stepping down. I'm not a lover of politics but they occasionally fly past my window at times demanding my attention. So today, I'll take a swat! I am reminded of PE lessons at school when the class had to split into two teams. The leaders would have to choose teams from their classmates and you just did not want to be the last person left standing. Alone. Come on ladies and gents, sort it out already. Would the real PM please stand up?
More importantly though something exciting happened to me. Last night I wrote like possessed madwoman - a total of 5,587 words... thank you very much Mr. Word Count! So that's a great big hooray for me! And a big boo to political quagmire at Westminster right now.
After a marathon of writing - I decided to treat myself by joining the hunt for the Elephant Parade in central London. Don't worry no real elephants were hurt; it's all in aid of charity and raising awareness of the endangered Asian Elephants. Sotheby's will auction off 258 of these elephants designed by many talented artists! Here's a few darlings' that I, ahem - shot for you. These lovelies are currently camped outside the Royal Exchange. Please enjoy! And please let me know - what kind of treats do you reward yourself after reaching your daily writing goals?
