Summer break

Hokay! Whose idea was it to start crocheting a woolly something in the middle of stinking hot weather? Ooh yeah, that was me. Sheesh!


The stripey thing is now stalled in favour of reacquainting myself with the ole book case. The only newbie in that pile up there is The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. Everything else I'm reading again for the (take you pick) nth time.

As for Mr Gaiman's book, I devoured it in a day and if I were a writer, I'd wish I could tell a story like him. I *gushing* loved it! I haven't gushed about a book for a long time. This is just the sort of book I can't wait to share with the kiddo when she gets older.

Anyhow, work and real life has taken over this part of blogdom again. I could kinda see this coming from a mile off, but I was in a bit of denial. We've just been too busy being out and about, that I haven't been doing the usual housekeeping here......including replying back to your comments. Don't worry I won't be gone long, just for the rest of summer.

Keep well & as I always say.....cheerio!

I agree with knitting in the hot weather, unless you sit straight under the air conditioner. We dont venture out too much in it, although when it cools down it is lovely and cool outside and nice to spend the holidays that way too. I hope you get some down time to craft soon, although catching up with reading is always nice. I have been doing quite a bit of reading myself.

Oh have you read Eat Pray Love.. what did you think? I saw the review on Oprah.
I am reading Parenting from the Inside Out.
At least you'll have a new scarf for winter.

Enjoy your holidays!! I must get the Graveyard Book I have heard so many good things about it......I also want to try Eat Pray Love....I've just finished Three Cups of Tea which is one of the most inspirational books I've read in a long time!

See you when you're back!

I'm adding The Graveyard Book to my book list -- which is unbearably long at the moment. Have a great summer!

I'm feeling the summer heat too- but glas we moved from Adelaide to Wollongong a few weeks ago. Seems easier to craft in the winter.. have tried to read eat, pray, love-got half way and lost interest- oprah really talked it up, maybe I should read the second half?

Hey Jade!
Was just scrolling through my bloglines and thought to myself that it had been a long time! Hope all is well and that you are still managing some crafting time (just not the blogging time) amongst all the other things in your life!
