I don't mind the effort of cooking for myself, but I do mind the time. Pizza Hut and Subway and McDonald's or Hardy's is tempting, but haven't given in to that so far. One of the irritating things about all this is that we had planned to get new tires on both vehicles. I think the money for that, and more besides, has now gone and will go to airline tickets.
On writing, I have now completed the (hopefully) last edit of Witchery and will submit it for consideration to another publisher.
