I've been so busy the last couple of weeks that there's been precious little time to collect my thoughts for any kind of blog post.
I've had friends staying with us. I've spent a weekend at a re-creation of the Battle of Tewkesbury. I've been down in Southampton seeing random people. This next weekend is the first that The Limey and I have nothing planned for out of town. Whew. I haven't even bought any fabric to try out on the sewing machine yet!
Another thing that keeps me from blogging is that I seem to have found my reading mojo again. I went into Daunt Books a couple of weekends ago and, for the first time in a while, found a whole bunch of books I wanted to read. I bargained myself down to just a couple, and then went to the Oxfam shop down the street and bought a couple more. I raced through the first two and am well into the third. And, for me, reading doesn't really make good blog fodder.
The thing that does make good blog fodder- knitting- has been dominated by a project I can't talk about. Suffice it to say that I'm totally over-the-moon excited about it, and even though I'm knitting the damn thing right now, I won't believe it's happening until the whole project is presented to the public.
Being excited about reading and knitting on a deadline does mean that I have to parcel out my time very carefully, though. I like to think I've been pretty good about it.
