World Record….

Drum roll the worlds slowest reader…  Ok so I don’t know about you guys but if I get in bed and start reading three lines later and my kindle is stuck to my face..  I think the only book that i just had to read was Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyers LOL! 

As a reader and I don’t know what kind of books you read, but in my opinion….  and don’t get me wrong I am no prude..  But … are books getting really explicit in sex and language?  I will tell you why < insert coffee and chocolate here>  I’ve read some really good books that have had NO swearing or sex in them and I must say that the books I am reading more of are the teen books.  I am sick to death of people called Dane with smooth silky C*&KS..  BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Seriously why, who cares?  What happened to a good old story…


Anyhooo this is what I am reading at the moment.  I have challenged myself to 12 books this year as I am possibly the slowest reader in the world.  But on a good note I can cross some of the reading goals off.  It’s a tween book and I am enjoying it.  Ok so its predictable but I can get in and out of it easy.  And after a day at my job, I like easy.. 

What are you guys reading?

Happy Sunday

Isn’t it just a happy Sunday too.  I was up nice an early, had my shower and put my PJ’s on.  My aim for the day was to do some work on my essay, finish my challenge for Faery Ink and then just relax as you do… So far I have finished my challenge for Faery Ink lol!!  To be fair <insert justifiable excuses here> I did sort out my stash of yarn and stationery at the side of my chair …

For you stationery lovers.  I recently discovered filo faxing/journaling what ever you would call it.  Here is mine for the week that I decorated with under the sea theme.

It’s not as nice as some of the ladies but still it’s really bright for my week at work.  I love it.

I also did this.  Amanda over at Faery Ink has a challenge on which I think I am still in time for LOL!!! Anyhoo it was Mardi Gras and I wanted to do a Day of the dead mask so this is what I came up with.  I used Aurora wings stamp and my promarkers to colour in.  But funny I haven’t coloured for a while and I am so out of practise.  The calendar is a freebie from Live Laugh Rowe.  It has the wonderful quote on it and it shall be going on my note board at work.



On the crochet I am still stash busting away a little sneaky peak. The challenge is over here at Linda's Crafty Corner

So I am off to enjoy the rest of my lovely sunny Sunday…

To read or not to read….

I really love reading and for a while now I have not been able to get past the first page or two..  I think it’s because I am reading books that are kindle free, but then on saying that I have bought a few.  I started a book the other day and the first sentence had ‘ He fucked up my fucking life he deserves to fucking pay’  and I was like REALLY???!!! Why do I have to read all this poop.  Don’t get me wrong I am no prude, but what happened to nice books that you can read without all the BS to go with it…


Anyhoo I came across Mique’s post who lead me on to Bringing up Burns.  Both post have given me the inspiration to get my butt up and reading.  So I am following both and I will be going through them slowly ( I am not a fast reader).

26 Books

On the side will be a list of books and a list of 26 books, why don’t you join in?  Do you read many books? Are you a speedy reader or a slow reader?  When do you read the most?  I know my reading time is before I go to sleep.

Happy New Year!  I really, really should get back in the habit of blogging.  The thing is I really love blogging.  Ok so I am lazy lol! But again as you do < insert huge predictable sigh here> you try to improve on your habits one habit at a time.  Last year I never improved any habits at all.  In fact I probably made the ones I have worse..  Yep I ate rubbish, I stopped doing the things I love, why because the lazy one took over.  Oh how I hate her!

Anyhoo new year new promises and a new me?  I think maybe I should just strive to keep happy.  Yes!  Things that make me smile!

Here I am still in the land of blogging since 2001…  I love it..

Blogging makes me smile …
