Feeling dispondant

Why is it some people are willing to put you down by saying you can not write and what you are writing is just pointless. Do they just love to put people down for the fun of it or is it because they are jealous.

GOT A KINDLE

My husband bought me a kindle for my birthday yesterday. It has been in my house a week looking at me calling me to use it. Unfortunately he barred me from going anywhere near.

I have pre loaded all the books i had on kindle PC for it a great app, but for some reason i can not read a full book on the computer.

The great thing is you can go onto Amazon.com via kindle and can download the books in under 60 seconds. The only down side I have found at the minute is the text to speech application, it sounds like a robot is reading to you and not a person.

My Sony reader I believe will become redundant. As the books are a lot cheaper for the Kindle. You can have your whole library in your hand where ever you go.

Happy With Myself

Last week I wrote everyday and sent in five submissions in to various magazines. Hopefully something will come of it. Then yesterday it was my husbands birthday as well as fathers day, am I on my own to feel guilty for not putting pen to paper at all yesterday?
I felt as though my right arm had disappeared into the abyss, I managed to glean a couple of anecdotes from our meal out, listening to the other patrons around us.
I think my main issue is how to approach editors with article ideas and using something snappy in which they will say yes we want that article.

Contact Lens Review

I initially saw this company on another blog. So I decided to check it out for myself.
https://www.contactlenses.co.uk They sell contact lenses from £7.00, for a box of thirty disposable lenses. Which I thought was very reasonable.  They have many of the top brands available, at varying  prices but I opted  for the Crystal 1 Day disposable lenses.  I know that at my opticians had wanted to charge me £150 for ones you take out and clean each day. Unfortunately  these are not suitable  for me as I have too much calcium in my eyes.

I ordered them on Friday night and they arrived on Monday morning.  I believe that if I had not ordered them on a weekend, I would have received them the next day. They even included a business card in the box for telephone orders. A nice touch I thought.

I can only say that they are extremely comfortable to wear. I have worn them for the past four days and can not realistically see myself  going back to wearing glasses.

The individual packs which contain your lenses are extremely easy to open. I would highly recommend this company and their contact lenses.

I decided to grab the bull my the horns as they say and start a blog.  I became very despondent about my writing   that was until I had a true life article published in the Issue 21 of Take a Break magazine.  This spurred me on to continue writing and I now have three submissions in to different editors  an article and two book proposals so fingers crossed they will come off.

I really need to get down to my University essay but I am procrastinating on here.  Well I guess sitting here is not getting my Heritage Essay complete.
