Sorry about the impromptu hiatus. Mad crazy amounts of work and tiredness have made it hard to find time to sit down without falling asleep, and mad crazy brain has made it hard to find things to write about when I do get a chance.
I spent a while of today making chilli jam and chutney and by all the powers that be, getting chilli oil underneath your fingernails is a torment I never want to repeat. It’s still burning and it’s been about 3 hours now. Any recommendations for stopping the pain?
I’ve been reading more recently – completed Raising Steam, the most recent Pratchett, and Wool by Hugh Howey which has been described as “the next Hunger Games” which I’m not sure I agree with but it’s a very interesting dystopian novel that’s caught my interest! I was lucky enough to be lent the first novel for free, so I bought the second from work.
Hairy and I have been crazily busy again over the past few weeks; I’ve been working at least one day every weekend since I started at the bookshop and so it’s been hard to get some decent time off. Even so, we’ve made the time to decorate our lovely little tree. His name is Gary! Fat Gary 😀
I’ll be back properly soon, typing is insanely uncomfortable at the moment.
