A bit of everything‏

I know I’m not the first to ask this question but really wouldn’t we all get so much more done if there were a few more hours in the day?

Failing that can I wish for a lottery win and the luxury of giving up work so I can happily sit at home crafting all day???

Hmmmm maybe I have more chance of having a 25 hour day!

Something which WILL make life easier is I’ve just discovered Google Reader…. (is everyone rolling their eyes right now saying “took you long enough!”?).

How fantastic is it?! Add your fave blogs and it tells you when there’s a new post to read, I was going through my favourites list, clicking on each link so you can imagine how much time I was wasting!

So what have I been up to since my last post?

Friday I wasn’t at work so was able to pop into a few charity shops, not much apart from these 2 pink ice cream dishes although I’m thinking they’ll have some sweets in them when their time for display comes along. I can’t wait to get back into the swing of car boot sales; they tend to be more fulfilling than the charity shops these days.

Although saying that, one of the shops has a huge box full of sheet music for 50p a book at the moment…. I’m still thinking about it 4 days later, maybe I should offer them something for it all?

How cute is this mug?

I picked this up in the sale, 75% off, I can see that displaying some candy canes quite nicely this Christmas & mum found this mini cookbook there too.

I ordered MORE books off Amazon which arrived in the week. I was able to watch some of Martha’s shows when holidaying in Florida last year and love Living magazine and these books are great to read, some fabulous tips that I’ll look forward to using when in my own home. Unfortunately it means all her other books have been added to my Amazon wish list!

Well Google Reader tells me I have 4 new posts to read so I'm off to do that!

I work at home and have all day to make art, or so I am supposed to. But it never quite works out that way... there really isn't enough time in the day.

I use bloglines which is similar to google reader. It does save time since you know when there's a new post instead of aimlessly clicking.
