Photo 365 Update

Hello folks,

I know it’s been an awfully long time since I did a picture post for my 365 challenge, don’t fear – I am still going. I just got behind [again] on uploading the pictures to my laptop… and then once you do get behind – it’s a rather daunting task to get back on top of things again.

Here is a picture of Noodle not caring to tide you over [bonus picture not from my dailies!]

 

Party over where?

Updates

Posted on by 0 comment

Yes… I have been rather distracted for a while. I’ve told you about the plans I have. Well, I am actually making a fair bit of progress on getting through the backlog of things I want to write about.

So, currently in the works are several posts about the swaps I have taken part in through the IGGPPC, another update on my goals for the year and I’ve even been on a couple of trips that I might like to tell you about.

I have also gotten quite behind in uploading the daily photographs, so expect a post soon to get up to speed with that!

So many things swirling in my brain, that it makes it hard to catch up with the typing!

Reading Goal Update

Posted on by 0 comment

This is a goal update, a bit like a 6-monthly check in to see that I’ve been getting on ok. And as far as reading is concerned, I have been incredibly successful for the most part.

I have surpassed my Goodreads Reading Goal of 40 books. I’m currently at 50, but I am quite close to the end of the book I’m currently reading. I have an idea of how it snuck up on me, I’ve read a wide variety of materials including graphic novels, comics, and a manga [my first one ever]. I know the pictures says 51 but that includes the failed attempt at Dirk Gently that we won’t talk about again.

Look at that number!

Absense Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

Posted on by 0 comment

Hello folks,

I know that it’s been a while since I last posted anything, it got a little hectic here for a while and I was having a hard time keeping up with with stuff outside of the shop. I hated to neglect the blog, but I suffered some serious lack of inspiration, and a lack of time that I could make alsorts of excuses for, but I won’t.

However, I have read a whole bunch of books, played a ton of games and made a lot of different crafts so I’m hoping that I can get back on the ball with this.

I have a series of posts planned to update on the yearly goals, as I have made some serious progress in that area. I’ve been pretty proud of the amount of hobby stuff that I have managed in the tiny amounts of time that I have scrambled to myself. Also there will be a great many book reviews to come too, we like books here.

Right… off to write some more things now.
