I admit to hitting 'New Post' and wondering what I was actually going to write...which is why I am rambling like this I suppose!
I received my 'Certificate of Competance' from the Writers' Bureau this morning which was lovely. Sadly, it hasn't inspired me to get much done today as I've wasted most of my morning on Facebook :( I never learn! I've got nothing worthwhile done in terms of writing or cleaning so far...and yet here I am typing this. Is there no hope for me?
I also received details in the post from Action Aid, a child sponsorship charity. I'm in a quandary now and almost wishing I hadn't requested details at all. Bottom line is that I have always planned to sponsor a child. But money is tight, I know I have more than these children do and for that I am forver grateful, but still there's is veyr little leaway between what goes into the bank and what comes out. This information this morning was very specific, complete with a photo of the child who needs a sponsor, his name, his details and an address where I can write to him. But there is still the issue of the finances. I don't know what to do now. Can I not sponsor him and justify that decision or do I fill out the form knowing that it may make things more difficult for us at home...and yet even as I write that I realise we will never know the difficulties that this little boy faces every day.
I don't know which way we will go. I will talk it over with SLA later on and take it from there.
After school I'm taking the Bean into town today - we're going to have a mooch around the shops and go looking for conkers under the trees near the library - I love Autumn!!!
