Not my favourite day of the week. Actually my non favourite day tends to vary depending on the semester timetable, but this semester it's Tuesday's. First, it's too long. Second, I spend all day working myself into a state about whether I will be able to perform or not. By 5pm (the pre-determined performance hour) I'm so tired I almost don't care.

...but I really do.

All in all it's a very draining experience and by the time I get home I can't even manage knitting garter stitch without dropping stitches. Quite pathetic really.

So really that was all just a very long winded way of saying that I still do not have a craft update, nor do I have any pics of any non-completed projects (which are quite substantial in amount!)

But I did at least blog so that must count for something!

AND most importantly I found the saved drafts page for future reference (as this was the missing blog post). So I clearly have much to learn!

So anyway....

I just typed a long blog and lost it. I clearly need to tame the iPad beast!

Suffice it to say, I will not repost. Which is probably best as all comments that are work related are best avoided. As are all comments on non-completed projects (which I specifically hereby refuse to confess on having).

I will, I will' I really truly will do something serious and craft like soon. I promise !!

Lack of progress

Ok, so I remember why I never blog:

1. I can't remember my blog page

2. I can't remember my email account

3. I can't remember my password

4. By the time I've sorted all that out, I can't remember what it was I was going to say anyway. And it's usually time for bed.

So basically - what it all boils down to is that I'm just too old for this [insert appropriate expletive here]!!

Not much can be said of the last few days. I have resorted to comfort food (risotto) and wine. It's not good for me. I know... I know.. I know! A sensible person would just get more sleep.

I have two comfort events approaching, visit to no. 1 step daughter and bi-annual craft fair event. Neither of those involve calories (hurrah!). Other than that, life is just plodding along.

Poor dead blog. I hope I can breathe life into you again. Though you were barely alive to begin with!

2011 is the year of completed projects. Because I just looked at my completed to started project ratio, and it's a pretty poor effort! I will commit to completing my projects by posting here. Well, I'll at least aim for 1 completed to every 10 started. That seems reasonable. And while I'm at it, I will keep the house clean (or at least, I'll try to clean it once a month). And I will lose weight (which means I'll at least try to eat more vegies). And I will remember to blog (assuming, of course, I can remember how to use this thing). And I WILL make progress on that darn SJD (filing papers constitutes progress, doesn't it??).

Blogging done. So that's a good start!
