When Spring Began
I’ve been AWOL last few weeks, as I’ve been moving house, and working overtime! Not the best combination. The new place still doesn’t have internet, but, thank god for tethering. I apologise for disappearing into thin air, but hopefully, I’m back!
I’ve got two books still to review, from my reading in March, plus I just finished The Bloody Chamber so, lots to catch up on! March wasn’t a great reading month for me, so I’d ideally like to finish last month’s book stack this month. Not counting on it though, as I’ll be travelling for about ten days in ten days time (seriously!), and work’s just piling on as well.
Also, Claire’s hosting the Angela Carter month this month, so, I’d recommend stopping by there irrespective of whether you’re an Angela Carter newbie, or a fan. As already said, I’ve just finished The Bloody Chamber, and I’ll be penning down my thoughts on the book tonight.
I plan to read a couple of more Carters this month, with Shadow Dance and The Infernal Desire Machines of Doctor Hoffman being the most likely. I’m really looking forward to reading them, as well as seeing what everyone else is reading, and how they’re getting on with her works.
Finally, it would be almost rude to talk about moving home, and not sharing pics of my new work area and bookshelf. The bookshelf’s already overflowing, but I absolutely love it. And I adore my new workspace as well. It’s still missing my big screen, which is still at my old place, but I don’t have the guts to attempt getting it on the tube, so, going to have to find someone willing to make the trek and give me a hand.
Spent all day yesterday building my favourite part of the room, and I am pleased with the results, so here goes…
Moving house is annoying, but, when the end result looks like that, there’s some gratification. Don’t you think so?
Also, what do you have planned for April, when spring’s ’round the corner, and hopefully, we’ll be able to put away our overcoats for the next six months? Can’t wait!
