A quick hallo

Working on a zillion things at once. And that is today only…

Want to know something about nanotechnology? Ask me. I wrote a lengthy, difficult press release on a breakthrough in the use of nanotechnology, had it cleared by the powers that be, and then set about translating it. Easier said than done, let you tell me. I mean, let me tell you! See the state my mind is in?

In between handled the umpteenth crisis with the Youngest One – the result of their ever-not-present alcholic dad. A crisis that started last week Wednesday and, amongst other things, prevented me from writing one single new word of my manuscript, that is due in by the end of August. The long and the short of it is that I now have no choice but to approach the court (via the Family Advocate), as I see no point in this man messing up their lives anymore with his drinking and drugging. A bitter thing to decide, but I think my kids will be better off without this man in their lives at all. Tomorrow morning I see a clinical psychologist to start the process.

After that, and after completing the magazine article I’m working on now, I can hopefully start work on the book again. Time is running out. I have exactly two weeks to put everything together for the publishers. I have all the research, but must now apply bum to chair and WORK without any more interuptions and crises.

Will pop in again as soon as I can afford to take a break! Miss reading everybody’s daily blogs, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do for her bread and butter! Hugs!

    Dit van ‘waag-moed’ om die wêreld van Fisika aan te durf, en dan boonop nog te vertaal ook! Ek haal my hoed af vir jou! Ek is seker jy het dit geweldig geniet, en baie geleer!

  7. Ek moes dit doen vir een van my kliente, die Universiteit van die Vrystaat. Twee van hulle studente het hierdie internasionale deurbraak gemaak t.o.v mikroskopiese chirurgie (letterlik chirurgie op selle). Vrek moeilik, maar ja, ek het iets geleer. Ek is die ideale partner vir trivial pursuit. Loop met duisende titbits kennis in my kop wat nie noodwendig vir enige iets anders as bordspeletjies toegepas word nie. Haha.
