It’s been a bit of a blogging slump too, and I guess for the same reasons. Too much openwater swimming and triathlon, too much occupying myself at work, gardening to be done, and too many vegetable box vegetables to be put into eating form. I’ve barely read a thing for weeks with the possible exception of magazines (mainly on healthy living and triathlon and swimming) and a few Brownie books and Chalet school fill ins. However, I started reading one Chalet School fill in on Monday, and I still haven’t finished it. I realised I must be in a slump at lunchtime today when I went to the library and nothing caught my eye at all and I came out empty handed with the exception of a DVD borrowed in an attempt to make me sit down at lunchtime. The swimming is great and I’m desperate to make the most of the short season available but it IS time consuming.
I feel like I’m failing a bit. I had plans at the beginning of the year and I’m not really delivering on them. Oh well. I think I need to get back to small and realistic goals, such as an hour of cross stitch a week, taking at least one of my tea breaks a day and using it to read rather than run errands.
Since I stopped getting the weekend newspapers I've missed out on reviews of recent books published and I've barely got time to do more than skim blog posts at the moment (apologies also for lack of commenting!) so ifyou've read or come across any recent books which I might like, let me know and I'll try to get them from the library!
Anyway, tomorrow I have a large group of people who I have mainly never met before coming to my house for tea. I’ll write more in due course (I hope!) (determined to find some time to write this weekend) but perhaps from this photo of a cake that I made for tomorrow you can tell what we all have in common?
