Random Thoughts

I can't bring myself to write a whole post on anything, so here's what's going on, bullet-style.

-I started both Prom by Laurie Halse Anderson and Surfacing by Margaret Atwood this week but wasn't able to get more than 20 pages in before giving up. I'm now reading Regeneration by Pat Barker and enjoying it. I might finish it this afternoon.

-There are a higher number of book reviews on my blog these days, but only because I'm going through a phase of reading more 1001 books. Once the phase has ended, the reviews will also stop. Just so you know. Look for a review of What I Loved soon.

-I'm going to stop doing my closer looks at my Robert Sabuda books. It didn't generate very much interest after the first week. Too much hassle to continue.

-In running news, I'm up to about 5k 3-4 days a week. I know that I'm not pushing myself very hard because at the end, I'm only at about a 3 on Christie's f*ck me scale.

-I'm finding the best songs to run to, that motivate me to continue running are songs by Eminem. They've got good beats and I find the angriness of it all to be just what I need to keep going. My 'power-song' is Womanizer by Britney Spears, however.

-Maybe next week I'll post photos of Elliot's first 'proper' haircut. When we're at toddler group or I'm picking him up from pre-school, and he's surrounded by a bunch of other children, I can't immediately recognise him. I'm so used to looking for a big mop of curls.

-I recieved three parcels this week. Two very exciting. More later on that.

-A special visitor will be arriving in a few weeks. I'm a little worried but also very excited.

-I've been taking quite a few naps this last week. I rarely take naps these days so this is surprising.


  1. I am impressed by anyone who runs at all. I just don't have the energy - so well done.

  2. I'm so proud of you for running..

    A visitor? Hmmmm the mystery!

  3. Scrap Girl - thanks, it's taken a lot of effort to achieve what I have so far!

    Tasha - I'm proud of myself as well. I'm very excited about my visitor. More next week! :)
