Weekly Writing Challenge: Lunch posts day 6

Time: 1705 Place Shell Petrol Station Tewantin

In queue for petrol. I didn’t think it would be busy at this time but I guess it gives me time to write something as I didn’t have time for lunch today and I didn’t know where i was going to get the time to write so this is good. I hope Roger has walked the dog by the time I get home. I hope I made it quite clear that I didn’t want to come home from dancing to have to walk. Its my one walk off. I give him two on Wednesdays when he plays golf. I don’t think my feet would take having to walk. Mustn’t forget the milk. When I get home I will have to do a post. Undulating. I don’t think I have any photos that really suit. I want to get a bit more editing done. I have to work out when I can get to the library too now that it has been organised for me to use it as a guest. Will have to finish my next book as well now I have confirmed that I am going to stick with that topic. Have to read that boring book for book club too. I have to get my enthusiasm back. Have to get that photo book done as the voucher runs out in March. I’ve just got too much to do. What should….

Bowser’s free…….

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.
