Adventures in Orchids
Apparently I am now collecting them...
EO - Everlasting orchid. Phalaenopsis. I've had this orchid since 2007 and it just keeps flowering...
AO - Alien face orchid. Phalaenopsis . Bought 2018 - lovely little flowers, all different patterns!
RO - Rescued orchid
TO - Tiny orchid. Phalaenopsis. Bought at Tesco 21.8.20. It just begged to come home with me. How could I say no?
CO - Crimson orchid. Cambria. Another Tesco find. This one may be going to live in Ken's room once we've redecorated and put up the new shelving; it prefers a cooler, less sunny windowsill. If so, I'll need to find another cambrian to keep it company.
GO - Golden orchid. Phalaenopsis. Saw this one when I bought CO and left it behind - then immediately regretted it as soon as I got home. Never seen one like it before. Ken, bless him, went back over to Tesco in the rain and bought it for me...
DO - Dendrobium Orchid. Smells of wisteria, so beautiful...
RO2 - Rescued orchid no 2. Phalaenopsis. This is the one I rescued from the wall along the road middle of 2021.
PO. Pink orchid. Phalaenopsis. This is the one I bought at Cabury Garden Centre on special, late 2021. It's much happier here!
TWO. Teeny weeny orchid, Phalaenopsis. Rescued from Tesco end 2021 (I think).

I am definitely mad…
I sat down earlier and made a list of things I have 'in progress' or in my 'to do - urgent' file. I need clones… immortality… a TARDIS…. The result was terrifying…
The follow-up to Strange Attractor.
The follow-up to How Gogul got his Eyes.
A follow-up to Innocence.
The orgy fic based on one of Naomi's pics.
The Legato (Trigun) fic that's been bubbling.
The follow-up to Lustre.
Sue's challenge - a story that makes her cry.
The follow-ups to Flight and Fancy.
Forbidden (only one chapter and the epilogue to go…)
Timeslipping (feel really guilty about that one - how many years has it been?)
The MMICIFiles and the Beauday and Doyaal stories…
The Alliance Chronicles, of course, planned up as far as AC6 and with the penultimate and last chapters already half written (yes, this monster does have an end!)
I've lost track of how many request and planned pics I have listed.
Then there's all the backstories - the zn'hre, Zorun and Kelapa, Nappa, more Merica and Jagung, etc etc…
And in what laughingly passes for 'real life'…
The additional chapters for FirstLight (and the struggle to find an agent), and finishing the rest of the series.
Book reviews for Crowsnest.
Finishing the Celtic book proposal for our non-fic agent.
And I promised my Good Twin a natal chart for her mum-in-law's birthday in September.
And that's without mentioning keeping a 7-year old occupied during his 6 week school summer holiday and running house/garden/menagerie/partner…
So what do I do? Gleefully accept the invitation to Purgatory… (a kind of yaoi literary RPG.)
Oh, and start this blog, of course.
[sigh] Someone once called me a "lovely but demented workhorse." Not sure about the lovely part but demented is certainly true!
Ah well - who needs sleep anyway?
Better stop whinging and go and do some of the above, hadn't I!

I must be mad...
With everything else I have 'in progress', why am I starting a blog?
Ah, what the hell - why not? I've read other people's, and they're a good way to catch up with what's happening. Though I can't promise to update very often...
