I was flicking around Stumble! this morning and came across a few sites that I found interesting. Here’s a website that amused me: Still Life: Bent Objects Where do people come up with the ideas?
Anyway, so how have you been? I’ve been relatively busy this week. Was off on Monday due to the kids being off school/nursery AGAIN, so invited my parents round for lunch. We had Sophie Dahl’s bread along with pasta bake, salad and olives. This was followed by the All-in-One Apple Cake from Gill Holcombe’s ‘How to feed your whole family a healthy, balanced diet…’ and custard…yum! Haven’t done any baking since then as have been working, but I’ll be back at it later today or tomorrow.
This week was also a week of new books…oooooh! I love books. I love reading. I love the smell of them. I love the feel of them. I love getting immersed in a fantastic story. I love being so engrossed with my book that I don’t hear it when my husband calls my name. Anyway, this week, I got The Gentle Art of Knitting by Jane Brocket, Felt Friends from Japan and a couple of Richard Scarry books. The latter (I also bought Cars, Trucks and Things that Go) were for my kids because I loved Richard Scarry books as a child, they are so full of interesting things to look at and are funny too. My kids loved them, my daughter even took her book into school for Show & Tell. Am so pleased they are as happy with them as I was as a child. The former two books are fab – there are several projects in both I shall be tackling (plus the girl has already placed orders for toys from Felt Friends already!).
Right am off. Am on a schedule. I have placed myself on a schedule because I am just not getting anywhere with writing at the moment…I have so much to do all the time that sitting down to write is not appealing, especially at the end of a long day. My solution? I know that if I write a list of things to do, I will do them, therefore I have put together a schedule (which, as a daily list writer, also appeals) that I hope to stick to. I’m away to write (and keep to aforesaid schedule). Speak to you soon,
