Turning Points

In story telling (and screen writing, in particular), when characters overcome obstacles it is known as a turning point. Like when you’ve conquered a level in a video game and you move up to the next level.

I think I’m experiencing that part of the game where everything speeds up and the lights flash and everything gets intense but I’m nearly there I just have to complete this… one… last… thing…!

We’ve had a lice crisis, a “lisis” if you will. Daytime baths, comb-related tantrums and extreme haircuts.

For health reasons, I’ve been attempting to engage in more of these activities:

And I’m trying to complete a birthday-related sewing project.

But often it has felt like my efforts have come to this:

Today, just when I wanted to fall into a heap, I checked the letterbox and found (amongst the stash of ignored bills) the magazine that is sent to me each month and the earrings that I purchased from Laurel O’Brien on etsy recently, beautifully presented. It was enough to lift my spirits.

Fingers crossed we go up to the next level in this video game soon!
