Watching, reading, listening, singing, making

Jan 8, 2010 | content | 1 comment

(this is the introduction post to the whole category, so this should give you a bit of background on when, why and how I fit stuff in).

I’m not a big tv or movie watcher – I don’t know if it’s simply because I get bored very easily, or I can’t leave my phone/PDA/laptop/paper/partner/knitting alone long enough to watch much – but I do have a couple of things I really enjoy, and have recently discovered the joys of TV on demand, with Virgin Media (our new ISP/TV and phone provider).  So I thought I’d record what I’m listening to (music and audio books from Audible), watching, singing (I’ll explain that one in a minute), what I’m reading for Uni, for my own further education and for pleasure, and what I’m making (knitting, sewing, crochet)

Signing is about the only one most people don’t seem to record, as in write down, but I’ve really gotten into Rockband (1 and Beatles, plus DLC) lately, so I thought I’d give a rundown of any stand out tracks.  I also indulge in Singstar about once a month.  So this is it 😉

The Covidcoaster – a week of ill #Mondayblogs #rungirlrun #kaiatus #Bloggingfromatoz

Last Monday, I posted about how myself and my youngest tested positive for CV19. Monday/Tuesday, I started getting really sick. Monday, I'd been quite cheerful - after all, Artenapan, my daughter, had had three days of a cough and little else. That's not how it played...

The two pink lines we didn’t want… #mondayblogs #rungirlrun

Just a quick one this week, as I have had a positive LFT for covid this morning. Lft 2 pink lines #covidtest #UK What this means in all practical terms is I'm more grateful than ever for my vaccines and, in part due to something my partner said this week, I've pitched...

A 2022 plan in the making… #mondayblogs #backlist #kailarks #rungirlrun

So I did my retrospective. And I don't do resolutions, mostly because if I did, I'd get into even more trouble than I'm in already. But, I do sorta, do plans for the year ahead.I've split them into personal and professional, then split appropriately from there. That...
