Weekly writing Challenge: Lunch Posts Day 2

Time 1400

Oppressively hot, muggy. Don’t envy Rod playing golf. Hope it is only the heat affecting Zach. He’s not right today. It’s as though he doesn’t quite know where he is and what he’s supposed to do now that he is here. He’s following me around as though I’m his safety harness. He looks a bit thin and his stomach seems a little large. I’m always writing him off and so far he has proved me wrong every time so it probably is just the heat.

I’m totally engrossed in my formatting. I can’t wait for the toast to pop up. I’ll take it in and eat it by the computer and continue.  Zac is happier in there anyway at the bed by my feet. I just have to be careful to remember that he’s there and not roll over his nose or paws accidentally.

Oh good. It’s up. Perfectly done.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.
