Today's a Sunday, which normally means get up late, drink a lot of coffee, and watch a movie or two on TV, meander around Morrisons and buy too many items (for example, we only went in for a loaf of bread and ended up spending almost £30 on everything from four-cheese tortellini to frozen pizzas to baked beans) and feel generally restless. However today I have been rather productive. Dave and I have replaced the hinges on our living room and dining room windows and he has also put up our new blinds in our bathroom! Our house is so much more snug and comfortable now. I can actually feel it smiling.
Also I have already made some new gift tags for Christmas. It only goes to show you can never prepare for Christmas too early. Even almost a year ahead of time! Speaking of Christmas, this is one of the purchases I made with Christmas money (never thought I'd ever buy a corset)...
(Next corset top/Venice jeans/Primark shoes)
Two great birthday gifts my beloved has gotten for me: a t-shirt and a sweatshirt from one of the best websites ever, outofprint.com! Each has the original cover of two of my absolutely most fave books on this planet, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, and the sweatshirt has Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger. Not only can I read two of the best books ever penned, but I can also wear them! Truly remarkable.
And I have created this! I look forward to providing you, my loyal readers, edifying and entertaining things, and most of all, very readerly and writerly moments.
This is for art lovers, avid readers.
This is for people who are trying to find music in the chaos.
I would like you to get happily lost in this, my Reading Room - this is the best room in the library. It is the quiet, private corner that somehow always stays warm, far away from the elevator and the stairwell doors that slam shut. It's for solitude. Only in here you are allowed as much food and coffee (or maybe something stronger) as you want. When
Happy Sunday, everyone!
