When I have time, I have a plan for my yarn. It involves crochet and colour. It is something to look forward to.
When the photoshoots have finished (they are for a book I am working on), I won't have to work every day of the week. This is also something to look forward to.
When Simon takes two weeks off at the end of the year, we have planned two things: afternoon tea in London with the teenagers as a late birthday treat, and nothing else. These are both things to look forward to.
When the new Hockney biography comes out, I shall be reading it. Reading about his Yorkshire background and his colourful Californian life is definitely something to look forward to in drear November.
When possible, I want to see the Power of Making before it closes. I'd also love to see the Cadell exhibition, because I have admired his elegant use of black and white for a long time. One to look forward to, one to imagine.
When the tulip bulbs are in the ground, I'll be happy. This is something I look forward to more than the planting, although planting has its rewards in the form of seeing the empty bags and feeling suitably virtuous.
When I think about what comes next, I have lots of new ideas, and putting new ideas into action is always something to look forward to.
So. Lots of whens to look forward to.
