A Spot of Housekeeping

The observant among you may have noticed that I’ve been shamefully neglecting the blog in recent weeks.  This is partially due to time being spent on more pressing needs (I have no idea how the Old English Thorn and I have accumulated so much stuff but, thanks to our loving parents, it is all now sitting in giant plastic boxes taking up space in our study and needs sorting through and [hopefully] disposing of), and partially due to the fact that my poor little laptop is dying.  I’ve had it for about eight years now, which is ancient in computer terms, and it can no longer cope with running anything which requires it to work at speed.  Such as the Internet, for example.

I highly doubt that I’ll catch up with all of this year’s reviews before we’re well into the next one, so I’ve decided I’m not going to worry about it.  The reviews will continue to trickle in and I will write them for everything I’ve read, but some may be more complete than others depending on how much of the book I can remember.  Thankfully I’m unlikely to have the same problem next year, as my greatly reduced post-wedding reading rate means I’m reading about half the books that I was before September and so it should be much easier to keep up.

As with all things, the further I fall behind, the less inclined I feel to write reviews and so instead I’ve been doing a bit of blog housekeeping in the fleeting moments when I can persuade my computer to do something online without timing out:

I have a few other blog-tidying projects in the works, but I’m going to be good and accomplish a few more reviews before I allow myself to be distracted by such things.  Or so I tell myself anyway.

It’s good to see you pop by – your blog is far more complicated than mine with tagging and lists – very impressive. Hope you’re enjoying married life!

Thank you! Like house-tidying, it’s one of those things that I find very satisfying.

I’m definitely one of life’s list-makers! Lists of things make me very happy, for some reason. This might suggest that I’m a very organised person, but in fact I’m quite the reverse. Perhaps that’s why I like lists so much…
