A Day in My Life


This topic from Long and Short Reviews’ blog hop was a tricky one because, as a writer, you would probably expect me to say that I write all day. I’m deeply envious of writers who can do this, but I have a day job, so I can’t.

On weekdays I am a debt advisor, so I spend most of my day attempting to reassure clients who are understandably worried about their debts. My evenings, at the moment, vary a little because I am in the middle of moving house – we haven’t sold the old house yet so I will probably make at least one trip to collect a box or two of stuff to bring back to our new place. On nights when we don’t do this I will write for an hour and then spend the rest of my time with a can of Strongbow catching up on junk television and reading on my Kindle.

On weekends I will write for a few hours, then if the weather’s good my husband and I will go out somewhere with his camera so he can photograph wildlife or get high altitude aeroplane shots. In the evenings I’m likely to put a film on – I have dozens saved on my V+ box and usually have a few on rental as well. I love horror, but I also enjoy historicals, action films and biopics, so we have a wide range of options in our blu-ray rack.

So how do you like to spend your day?

  1. Love the sound of your husband's hobby... and that you get to go along with. Sounds like a lot of fun. And HOW I like to spend my day is different from how I DO spend my day... find out why here: http://jhthomas.blogspot.com/2019/03/wednesday-blogging-challenge-day-in-my.html

    1. I'd love to photograph but I don't have the patience to line up shots the way he does.

  2. I love flying in smaller aircraft. I don't get to much anymore, but I still love it. I don't miss the fun of moving, either. Good luck with that. Good post!

    1. I haven't flown in a small aircraft for ages - I used to skydive, but not any more.

  3. Being a debt advisor sounds like an interesting way to pass the day. How did you get into that profession? Did you need to go to college or university for it?

    Are you also into wildlife photography? I think that sounds like a fun way to spend a weekend.

    My post.

    1. There are qualifications in debt management but I got into it after training as a careers advisor, funnily enough. The basics are much the same.
      I love the idea of photography but lack the patience to do it well.

  4. My husband and younger daughter both love taking photos. Need to get my kid out more often. I wish I had more time for both reading and TV.

    My post!

  5. ARGH, blogger errored out and ate my comment. And it was long and stunningly humorous and refreshing. I can say that now since no one will see it, lol. It sounds like both you and your husband are artists: your art is writing, his photography. That's awesome!

    1. He considers himself an amateur, but I consider him an artist, definitely.
