Hi dear friends,
I’ve decided to stop writing here for a while. The reason is two-fold. You may have noticed that this blog is a bit of mess with funky links not working and so on. I simply do not have time to get it all spiffy and shiny-new (do you want to see my to do list?) but I feel a bit mopey writing when it is like that. It makes me feel like a crap blogger.
The other reason is that for some reason (nesting? pending 25th birthday?) I feel really focused on my career at the moment. But write I must, so I’ve created a new blog (yep, another one). It’s very simple and bare-bones so I can focus on writing. If you fancy it, do pop over and have a read. I would like that (but if you want to give me the silent treatment that’s cool too).
My new blog is called Letters to the Zoo and it lives here https:letterstothezoo.wordpress.com
It’s all about books, movies, weird library shenanigans and the internet. Thank you for reading, here, friends. It’s actually one of the best things, to get to write and that maybe someone will read it.

I don’t think anyone really likes being cold, or weeks of grey skies and rain, or a nose turned pink after huddling up a hill in the dark after work because yes it’s dark when you finish now. Nope. BUT I do very, very much like a cooler clime. See, I don’t do well in the heat. I shrivel up into a prune. I become as useful as sock without it’s pair. Or a broken rubber band. I turn into a floppy heap. So yeah, I’m excited about this change in the air. The literal change of a wisp of cool. And so here are just some things happening now at the turn of the season.

Hi everyone. Is everyone feeling as depressed as am that it is Sunday evening? I always get a touch of the Sunday blues. On a less grey note, this weekend I did not have to work OR study which is basically a work of God, or just, ya know, timing. I decided at some point that despite the high 20s heat I would not retreat to my bed a la sloth but would in fact Do Nice Things. Here are some of the nice things. Continue reading
