Turning off smart punctuation stops the em and en dash thing in iOS. Finally. Conveniently the . with double space is it own setting.
It’s a lovely day here. After school drop off I sat out in the garden with a cup of tea (of course) and just listened to the birds and shooed away a cat looking to use the veg patch as a litter box. I could sit and write a novel out here.
I ought to tidy the garage and do other things but…maybe later. 🕰
I cleared out the mac and made space for the typewriter and notebooks/paper writing. Removing one of the monitors for the mac did make a big difference and I was tempted to keep it just like that - think iMac look. Whilst it did look much better, it still wasn’t going to help with doing more actual writing. So I’ve removed the mac altogether. The space works well for typing on the iPad too, although that’s not much better than going on the computer. I wrote a little in my notebook and it was nice. I want to write more letters and send mail with photos etc. or just write on paper. Can’t decide if I should sell the Mac and monitor or just keep it all. Either I might change my mind, or maybe it’ll be useful later? I should probably just sell it…I’ll see how it goes.
I now immediately want to buy some desk organising thing or something to stack paper and pens and other writing junk. I don’t need it, I just want to add it! I have the date stamp somewhere so I could use that. I also have Mario Pipe mug that I’m using as my pen holder, so that’s good enough. Perhaps a little tray might be nice to keep a few tiny items. Putting everything out does risk the kids getting it, especially the 2-year old, and then drawing/stamping/using/breaking whatever it is over everything. So maybe it’s best that stuff stays out the way.
One week until Stranger Things Season 4. Feels like an eternity since the last ones…maybe I should rewatch them…? 🧑🏾🧑🏻👦🏻👧🏻🩸🙃🧇🚴🏾♀️👩🏻🦰
