First Day With My First DSLR

I had nightmares. That I would be late and I wouldn’t get my camera, or I’d only find the camera body but not the lens in the box or that it would arrive damaged and I couldn’t even get a refund.

I woke up three times this morning, twice too early to get up.  When my alarm went off at seven thirty my first thought was that Royal Mail had been open for a half an hour and I’m still in my bed!! Okay, I didn’t really panic.

I wrote my Morning Pages and then without breakfast (!!!) left home. I was back within an hour opening the box and finding all the parts in it and putting it together and panicking and looking for the manuals and finding only on CD and downloading it and finding out everything was fine and feeling as excited  as children do at Christmas time.

Then I had to go to meet up a friend so I didn’t get to the end of my readings but I took it with me and I was playing with it all afternoon. And it was sooooo COOOOL.

I also received the long forgotten Novel Writing Kit from Writing Magazine for my subscription.

And today after five months I sent off my homework to my tutor so I think this day should be remembered and celebrated forever.
