The last week seems to have just passed in a bit of a blur and I don't know what I've been filling my time with ... not much, that's for sure. I can't say I've been crafting ... that would be a blatant lie! And it's not as though I've been spring cleaning either. So for the WOYWW record, after all that's what we're here for, here's what's on my desk today.
ast week's post. I can report today that two more albums are now full taking the total up to fourteen and still counting! Behind the scrapbook is a basket of various festive patterned paper packs, a box of paper punches and date stamps, the guillotine and one of those really useful boxes with 12x12 Christmas papers and embellishments. There's also a dish of bits and bobs, a tray of washi tape and a cup of much needed latte.
Ali Express. With free shipping for UK customers the price worked out at just 71p a sheet - a bargain!
The only other job of note this week is one the EM and I did together.
Just two books listened to this week. Both fiction but they were too very different 'reads'.
The Memory Book by Rowan Coleman. It's a disturbing read but also a hopeful one and there are moments of real humour. The main character, Claire, like her late father, is suffering from early onset Alzheimer’s disease. The memory book of the title is kept at the suggestion of her counsellor - something to pin her memories down while she still has them. A very good read even if the issue of Alzheimer's is an undeniably sad one.
The Lewis Man by Peter May. This is a story of the mystery surrounding an unidentified corpse recovered from a peat bog on the Isle of Lewis. Beautifully descriptive, the book is taking me around the islands of Lewis and Harris and giving me an insight into life of these islands in the past and present, as well as telling a riveting murder story. This is the second book of a trilogy and I have yet to read the first, The Black House, so it's now on my list of future reads.
Oh dear, there's the rain on again. Sigh. Hard to believe I got the washing hung out for the first time this year just two days ago. Roll on the better weather!
