I have done about two thirds of my novel now, just the last bit to edit and then it goes out to beta readers. And on to the next one.

The renovations to the inside of our French house are just about done now, there's some work outside - an area to be paved, and my Woman Shed to do my writing in - I hope that will be done by the end of our summer stay.

Think not. Do.

Summer is still a little bit away but I think over the next few weeks I will start updating this thread with new things I would like to do or accomplish this coming Summer.

It was so nice to have indoor plumbing and hot water last month. We've now found an electician to do the rewiring that is badly needed. Also I've decided to have satellite tv and broadband - I came back to 1040 unread e-mails and am still working my way through them.

I did some editing while I was there, but plenty of other things to do - had to buy a dishwasher and a new washing machine (the old one having turned into a floor washing machine) and finalised the sale of a parcel of land at the end of the property, ordered some tiles for the bathroom walls and failed to pick them up, got caught up in a demonstration by Angry Peasants. We've now got an actual house number and named road, instead of being just us in the village. So we are ahead of our Welsh house which just has a name and a village.

I'm not too happy about the new medication. It hasn't sorted out my blood sugar levels, it hasn't made me lose weight any faster than before, and it makes me queasy all evening after I've injected myself. I'm seeing the practice nurse in a week, and I'm going to ask her to take me off it.

Think not. Do.

Well so far the new medication isn't making me lose weight any faster than before. I decided that for me the SP calorie allowances were too generous, so I cut back a couple of hundred calories and it has worked - I'm losing 2lb a week at last. I wore my jeans last week!

Our house in France is having some renovations done - inside plumbing for a start - and when term finishes for me at the end of the month we're going over for 3 weeks. At which time I'm going to get going I hope on the second manuscript's revision, because I mean to have done the first one by then.

Think not. Do.

I hear that. I regained my weight over the last year or so and I want to lose the weight but to get back into that mindset where I lost all the weight is tough.

I actually have a few things I want to do this summer with Yami. We wanted to go to the beach as often as we could. We wanted to go out to Dave and Busters again. I wanted to go visit a French bakery one morning. We wanted to go to outdoor movies and summer concerts. We wanted to visit bars with karaoke more. And other stuff that I can't remember off the top of my head.

I am getting new diabetes medicine which is supposed to help me lose weight. It would be nice to go down a size.

Think not. Do.

I would like to start updating this thread when I have a moment. Summer is right around the corner and the unofficial start of Summer is usually Memorial Day weekend which is less than two weeks away!

I've had such a busy time recently I just want to relax over the summer holiday season.

What's on yours??

Yami got me into the idea of having a bucket list to do for the season so I made one about a month ago and so far I've done maybe three or four of the items on it. But let's hear what's on yours!!
