When I am not at work, I tend to let the day drift by – a bit of knitting, a bit of reading, popping to the shop for milk, walking the dog – that kind of thing. There is no structure to my day and the things that need to be done – ie housework, boo hiss – kind of get left by the wayside.
So, it is Spring and things needed to change! I am going to do a bit of the stuff I don’t like first thing in the day, before I can do stuff I do like. Yesterday I hoovered and did the ironing, and by lunchtime I was free to do “me stuff” so I finished off Ghostwalk in the afternoon. This morning, I have tidied the top of my chest of drawers, got rid of all the junk and hiding behind all that was this……..
My TBR!!!! All these books – with maybe one or two exceptions – are TO BE READ. (You can click for a close up and to see my reading choices). Some of the non-fiction I have dipped into like the Reiki books, and I have already read My Booky Wook and The Historian, but the rest are just waiting patiently for me to get round to them.
I have a strange relationship with this stack of books. If I am reading a lot, I tend to add new books to the stack. If I am not, I don’t add new books, so it does seem to maintain a similar size although I have to admit it probably does have a slightly larger inflow than outflow over time (ahem).
So with that little job done I am now free to start my entrelac adventures!! I have the Annetrelac Socks pattern downloaded and printed and I’m raring to go. I am finding the prospect a little daunting, but it will be a challenge and a new skill learned at the end of it.
