Shopping on my mind
I'm starting to think about the dreaded Christmas shopping and am scouring the net for goodies.
I hope that a book will shortly be arriving from Susan Hill which will be my mother sorted (it's OK, she won't read this!)
I also have my eye on this book as a possibility for my father. He is not a great reader but is a keen gardener.
Son 1 seems to mainly want money. Son 2 is always a problem as there are so few things he enjoys, but a selection of videos/DVDs/CDs and some chocolate usually hits the mark.
Hubby will probably have his own ideas and as for me, I have ordered the two volumes of the Paris Review Interviews and I have my eye on a classic Penguin books mug, preferably the Virginia Woolf Room of One's Own mug which would match my purple themed writing accessories perfectly. I'll have to start dropping hints about that...
Three notable things:
1. A great coffee and catch up session with two friends yesterday...
2. Did I tell you I have started to knit a cardigan?
3. Doing the flash fiction on the Your Messages blog is increasing the hits to my own blog... and Sarah Salway has left a message here!
