Got to L's at 10pm last night having finished work at 8.30pm. Found out he was getting up at 6.30am this morning to go to work. Finishing around midday. Seeing as I was heading off to work in the afternoon evening, felt a bit bummed.

Staggered home around 7.30am and wrote a short story full of over tiredness and endless days and nights of work then collapsed into deep dreamless sleep for 2 hours which I woke from abruptly. Still on autopilot.

The weather's not helping. Event organisers love droughts. It's raining. $30,000 of event hovering on the brink.

Well I got my application in for the HarperCollins Varuna Manuscript Awards so now a wait.

I thought I'd also got my uni application in - but they sent part of it back with more paperwork to fill in - so I'll do that this weekend. I'm having second thoughts about uni - while I'd love to do it - it's actually pretty expensive and I'm not sure I can manage that plus the mortgage plus having a life. I'll still get the application in and make a decision if they decide to accept me.

Maybe I'll win lotto between now and then. Really must go buy a ticket - I'm sure that would increase my chances!

Work is still pretty busy - but at least I can see the end of the tunnel approaching.

I've got a big event this weekend. A small event next weekend. A weekend off. A big event. A weekend off. A small event. And then we're into December and the year is all over bar the shouting!
