Cowart's Common Room

I have been searching for a short story I typed out and saved on my MicroWord files, well at least I thought that I saved it....... I think son may have forgot to save when he downloaded all my previous files from my old PC to my new one. Short story has to be in for writing competition by 28th November on a theme of Norfolk no more than 2,000 words in fiction.

Had a lovely long walk with Daisy this afternoon in the woods, she spied a squirrel but he soon shot up that tree for safety, very cute that squirrel.

If you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Frances's Avatar Camilla, I so hope that you do find that short story. Is it not true that it is pretty impossible to ever lose anything that is ever sent into a computer's memory.

Considering the value of our regular owl correspondence, I certainly do hope that all will be with the world forever!

My day off has been actually quite full. Laundry done! Then on to various Christmas gifts that I am working on speedily, and some calls to the shop to sort out a few things. Then grocery shopping, and a trip downtown to a fantastic paper/stationery shop that just carries all sorts of stuff that anyone interested in writing, or making art with paper, would love. I needed to get envelopes for this year's Christmas cards. Got them and some other stuff that will be fun to play with, including a new stamp pad in a very pretty green.

Hello Cait!

Camilla's Avatar Hello Frances,

Thank you. I fear the short story is lost, a chilling ghost story set in the 17th century and centered around the Rectory. I cannot remember word for word unfortunately, sigh.

Our Owl Posts will go down in history for all to see hopefully.

On the question of laundry........... there always seems to be so much, and then to do all over again, same with ironing.

I used to go to a wonderful stationery store in London, whose name escapes me now, I was a constant customer to that store, and they sold Three CandlestickS Notepaper in pastel shades with unfinished edges, slightly rough textured paper but very pretty.

I am not so organised with all presents yet Frances, just a few I have managed to buy so far. I love the idea of that Green stamp pad.

Frances's Avatar Camilla, how late can you stay awake and still be up before noon? I am such a morning person, that if I stay up past 1 am, I know that I will be in big trouble with the dawn.

So, that is my subtle way of urging you to please close the lights, and your eyes, and get some rest.

See you tomorrow evening. xo

Camilla's Avatar Thank you Frances,

I shall get 5 hours sleep, will be enough, and I am half day duties today. When I worked full-time I was in bed by 11pm, slept until 6am, it was vital.

Night Night Frances, I am off to bed , pleasant dreams to you, see you tomorrow.

Camilla's Avatar Just about to log off and can see you Tiggy.

Sorry, it is late for me, I hope to catch up with you later this evening Tiggy. I do hope your husband is comfortable in hospital. Love and hugs to you Tiggy.

Cait's Avatar I'm sorry I missed you both!
Just called by briefly on my way to bed very late - it was writing group and then pub last night. I was very tired so didn't hang around.

Westerwitch's Avatar I am a stay up late, get up late person - not a morning person at all and envy people who are.

Thank you both for your lovely Owl postings - such a lovely end to the day.
