NaBloPoMo 4: A lazy warming moment

The official prompt for today is:

When you are writing, do you prefer to use a pen or a computer?

I prefer to use a computer for blogging, or writing extended pieces of work like essays. But I definitely prefer writing out ideas or creative pieces on paper with a decent pen. I love the way ink rolls over paper and the shapes of letter form in space.

What I feel like writing:

I also love the warm lazy feeling of sitting in a softly lit room watching the dark outside.

I have worked from home today crunching endless puzzles of numbers to show the success of various campaigns run by my department over the summer. It's exercising the parts of my brain I'd gently tucked away age 16. Creating nubs of algebra to spin maths for me. The numbers are, on the whole, positive and so whilst hard work, not entirely unpleasant.

I am now at the point where I need numbers from other departments so I am working away waiting for these on other smaller things.

Tom is home now, and I can hear him pottering in the kitchen, the soft tones of PM on Radio 4 are slipping under the door.

The wonderful Oink have scuppered my dinner plans by not being able to provide tasty pork at the South Western Arms tonight due to an electrical fault, so now I shall potter off and see what I can find in the kitchen to cook for John this evening, or an appropriate restaurant to patronise.
