I don't know why but I find snow or any really bad weather actually, a really good excuse to do absolutely nothing and just sit and read. I'm not really a person who reads a bit each night before I go to bed, because once I start a book I have to finish it within a day or so. I suppose I could read a book each night instead of wasting time watching TV but I'm not sure that would feel the same, probably because watching TV requires minimum effort and attention and when I'm watching TV I tend to almost switch off mentally, unless it’s a really good program that I've been following. I think this is why I tend to watch things like 'Paramedics' 'Real Rescues' and the like. They're require total minimum effort to watch.
I’d love to be one of these people that can recall all sorts of stuff because I do find what I have learnt genuinely interesting, I just can’t blooming remember any of it. My cousin finds uni really easy because he remembers so much information, so once he’s read something it’s permanently stored and he doesn’t have to keep reading over the same stuff again or relearning things. Super handy for exams. I used to remember 3 key points then ‘brain dump’ them onto the exam paper the minute I turned it over and then elaborate on them.
I’ve seen from the news and everyone’s blogs that the snow has hit everywhere this time. I do love the snow; although I’m not sure that feeling will last when I need to go out tomorrow. I think I may have to dig the car out. Lily absolutely loves it and though it was very exciting that she had to dig her giant tennis ball out of the snow. Here she is wearing her lovely new colour that her Nan bought her from Pene. It’s so pretty and is covered in East of India Union Jack ribbon. Pene has a little dog too, a cute little westie girl called Daisy.
This will be my last post until after Christmas so I hope everybody has a lovely time and eats lots of yummy food and has lots of lovely company xxx

I'm looking forward to getting the boxed set of all of Agatha Christie's books on CD. I listen to audio books a lot, especially at work. Oh and I know I'm getting them because I ordered it from my book club and Himself paid me back for them! lol

Love the sound of snuggling up with a good Agatha Christie book. Love the snowy pictures of Lily. Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

I hated the Wasp Factory. I've enjoyed some of his other books and so picked that one up second hand and hated it! Agatha Christie will be much much better!ReplyDelete

Happy Xmas, Amy! I've been catching up with your blog and am full of admiration for you undergoing the op. One of my pals had it done a few years back and says it's the best thing she ever did.ReplyDelete
