Just a quick post to say that if you want to learn a little about me and my books, take a look over at Simon’s blog Savidge Reads where I’m today’s featured blogger in his series Other People’s Bookshelves.
I can also recommend checking out the rest of the series, because who doesn’t like having a nosy of other people’s bookshelves?
Last year we had builders in to do various jobs and for longer than I was entirely happy about our dining room looked like this:
At new year, with the builders finally gone and the room freshly plastered, we were ready to start redecorating. We picked out colours,
braved putting up wallpaper,
(Tim worked speedy fast for me)
and started constructing my library.
In fact, a few months back we were mostly done and I blogged about my almost-finished library here. However, there were a few bits and pieces still to do. Between my sister’s wedding, my lupus flares and us generally wanting to have a life outside of DIY, it’s taken us a while, but today I can finally declare the library finished! And isn’t it beautiful?
“Happy blogoversary to me,
happy blogoversary to me!”
Today is a ridiculously busy day for me, with bridesmaid dress arrangements, furniture moving, book unpacking, filing and other useful things to be done. However, I am hoping to find time to do some exercise and to bake a blog birthday cake. And post a picture of it here, of course.
UPDATE 1: A fair few things ticked off the list, which is satisfying. Here is a sneak peak at the library project that has been keeping us busy for weeks:
I’ll do a proper post about it when it’s complete, with before and after pics and all that jazz. But it’s already looking good, no?
Also, forgot to say earlier, happy World Book Day! All sorts of fun things seem to be going on. Twitter is full of updates on book giveaways and other projects. BBC2 has some special programmes about it on tonight that I can’t watch live because I’m going out but I’m recording them to watch tomorrow.
Right, now for that cake…
UPDATE 2: Well, I baked a carrot cake that smells amazing but it fell apart a bit so…not so photogenic. But I’m still feeling celebratory because I won a copy of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie from Little Interpretations for World Book Night! What a day!
