Did you know, that in the middle of the planks of laminate flooring is wool-like wood? Neither did I, until Missy half-demolished the one by the back door. She thinks it'll get her out of the back door. Occasionally she tries chewing the door too, but since it's plastic she doesn't get very far with it.It's the reason why my back door mat has a corner taken out of it. And why she's now working on the opposite corner, since I turned it around. The trouble is that she thinks anything put in her way is just a challenge to be overcome…
She's also gone off the cornflake-like pieces in her food. They used to be her favourite. With the other bits she's not keen on, she just leaves them in her food store and eats the bits she likes best first. Which seems to include bits of sweetcorn - I keep finding half-eaten bits of it buried everywhere. But with the cornflakes, she leaves them in her food bowl. Until yesterday, she was taking them off me, if I offered one to her. But yesterday I gave her one, she took it, thought about it, then dropped it.
She has yet to learn that just because she wants something, doesn't mean she'll get it.
I've been reading some Chalet School books recently, which I will post about on Wednesday. They really made me want to get back to Lynda Day at the CS. Although the trouble with that is I know how it starts, I just don't know how it goes on from there (aside from not what I wrote in the first draft).
For Unconventional Courtship I really wanted to write a pairing from a different fandom every time I did it. I was thinking of writing Harry/Ruth next because a bit of undercover stuff could fit well with a summary. But there's been a few things recently that have made me want to write Tarrant/Dayna, despite having written Tarrant/Servalan/Avon for the first Unconventional Courtship. I think the trouble is that Tarrant/Dayna fit the ridiculousness of the whole thing well.
What all this thinking about writing means is that I'm too busy for writing. But more awake and less dizzy than I was. We'll see how long it lasts.
