I’ve been meaning to write a more..personalised post lately. I know, I mean…I dunno. ha ha. I feel lately that I’m just endlessly posting promo, and yeah, while that IS slightly true, it’s not like I’m purposely neglecting my blog. I love my baby blog. It’s the only – or I should probably say, one of the only things I’m most proud of. Because it’s grown like…well, more than I have.
Today I just want to tell you what I’ve been up to. I ramble over and over on twitter, it must seem like I’m just glued to my phone screen. (I am mostly, but that’s not the point.)
First off, I’ve discovered another hobby. Crocheting. I’m improving, and that’s good because it’d take me til next year to finish this baby blanket I’m making for my up and coming niece or nephew (who is due in July). However, I couldn’t decide on colours, so I decided that if the finished product doesn’t look suitable to give to someone else (like, say, if I botched it up badly) then I’ll keep it for myself.
My mum keeps saying I should just make a scarf or do the blanket straight (I’m doing it in zig zags. I think it’s technically called ‘chevron’?) but I made the point of saying that I can already DO straight patterns. I want to practice other stitches, because if I don’t, I’ll never be able to make anything adventurous. -Sigh- Oh, the drama.
I’ve got making bracelets down, though. Mostly because they’re simple (they weren’t at first) and quick. Although the first one took me hooooouurrrs. *yawn*
SO, there’s that…
Oh, and I’ve been sloooowly making headway on the books I got from Netgalley. Slowly slowly catchy monkey, as my mum would say. 😛 If I can read a few pages from two or three books a day, I call that impressive. When they come out in print I’ll get them and properly finish and review, because Netgalley is addictive but I’m a fail at finishing them in time before publication.
I’ve been trying to get more words written on my story. More like ‘stories’. I am attempting to stick to ONE this time, and not get sidetracked. I have so many shitty ideas. Ha ha ha.
I had a birthday ( on 13th). Yes. Me. I will not say WHAT number I turned, but let’s just say it’s too big for my brain to consider. I’m so not that number and I will never BE that number, thankyouverymuchgoodbyesir. *breathe*
I’d been practically GLUED to Netflix for at least 3 weeks while I watched The Walking Dead (for some reason it doesn’t have season 5! 🙁 ) Z Nation – Has this bad boy in it
and I loved the show so much. Can’t wait for season 2!
Also rewatching Lost, oh and found a cute show called The Crazy Ones which has Robin Williams in. I assume it was one he did not long before he passed away. I miss him so much. I wish more people had understood his sense of humour more because damn, he was so funny!
I went to see Avengers: Age of Ultron last Thursday 23rd. Brilliant film. Lots of action, CGI and witty banter, but mostly I just love the suspense. The new characters were ace, too. There were a few parts where there was so much going on I got a bit confused, but that didn’t overwhelm me. I was staring wide eyed at the screen like a big kid at Christmas.
Ultron gave me the creeps, though. *shudder*
Been planning more for my America trip end of June. Three weeks…blimey*. I kinda wish I hadn’t rushed to do the trips I did in 09 and ’10, because we kinda ran out of money…so this will be…interesting.
I’ve also been visiting my niece, who is growing at the speed of light (figurativly) and is…I would say, in her terrible two’s. Good thing my brother doesn’t read this blog. So I can say she’s hella whiny, clingy and spoilt, but she’s also the cutest bundle ever (when she’s not crying) and I can’t wait to actually take her places.
That’s about it, I think. As for actually reading physical books…I got lots from the library but I think I’m coming to a halt. I don’t know why it is, but the more I get, the less I read. >_<
Well, enough from me. I hope you found this post captivating as always. 😛 I’ll be back soon with a review..I hope.

*going FOR 3 weeks, not that it’s 3 weeks til I go. Actually it’s 8 weeks til I go. Phew!
