[ ] had lunch by the fairy tree with fabulous friends (do enjoy the photo of me with my mouth hanging open like a dopey dork if you click on that link)
[ ] sold seven skeins of my hand dyed sock yarn. As fast as I upload them to the shop, they go ping!
[ ] watched the big fellas fly in and eat the little fellas' food
[ ] come to the realisation that the essay due tomorrow at 4.00 pm will not actually be submitted tomorrow at 4.00 pm
[ ] had several insane but ultimately satisfying days at work
[ ] moved into my own office so Job Share Bloke and I no longer share but are next door neighbours. He got the bookshelves but *I* took the couch (and ordered another bookshelf). Contemplating artwork for walls. And a pot plant. (He kept those).
[ ] We have a code: one tap on the wall means Be quiet in there I am trying to concentrate and am very important; two taps means Let's go for coffee; three taps means Ha ha I got the couch.
[ ] delivered a birthday present to a friend
[ ] come to the realisation that that friend has found the blog. Right, Linda?
[ ] discussed DBC Pierre's Vernon God Little at bookgroup and agreed it is unlike any other book we've read before which does not necessarily translate into yes I liked it
[ ] finished my audio book copy of Kate Atkinson's Case Histories and am positively totally bereft. No more Jackson Brodie until she writes her next novel. Hurry up, Kate.
[ ] also finished reading (finally!) Lauren Groff's The Monsters of Templeton and enjoyed it immensely. A cross between a memoir, historical fiction, genealogy mystery but it is more than the sum of its parts and totally engaging.
[ ] not been able to think or plan what to take to craft weekend tomorrow night (tomorrow night!)
[ ] come to the realisation that I will be taking a half finished essay to craft weekend tomorrow night (tomorrow night!)
[ ] along with a sticky dessert of some kind
[ ] and my knitting and maybe even my spinning wheel
[ ] and all the books and journals that go along with the essay
[ ] and a goodly stash of chocolate and wine.
