OK, Ok, I know I’m pretty overdue for a real update. Here goes.
Things have been reasonably busy at work. Have had a couple of projects stretch out a bit (which means I haven’t got all the info I need to proceed with my end) but it’s not bothering me too much.
Steve & I have been packing, slowly, for our move into our house at the end of November. It’s still hard to believe it is really our house! I’m excited and nervous (and I hope the whole moving house thing won’t impact my NaNoWriMo too much the weekend of the 25th). The garden’s really taking off. So far we’ve planted: peas, beans, tomatoes (3 kinds), eggplants, lettuce, swan plants, chilies (only about 16 plants in the greenhouse!), chives, spring onions, basil, an artichoke and some Vietnamese mint. Awesome! We’ve also found out that we are going to be able to get a gas line piped to the house, which will mean a gas stove-top, an infinitiy hot water supply, and gas heating. Combined with all the ultra cozy wool insulation we’ve put in the ceiling (and are putting in the walls soon), we are going to be so toasty this winter!
Hopefully I’ll be getting my laptop back today. Today, as in 10 hours before NaNoWriMo begins. Talk about cutting it close! I’ve been making plans for my story for the last week or so. It’s going to be a Sci-Fi. I love Sci-Fi, but have never written much of it before. It’s going to be interesting!
Oh, and I’ve been playing craploads of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: And Justice For All. It reminds me a little of those Perry Mason computer games I used to play on my Commodore 64. It rocks!
Haven’t been doing a hell of a lot of spinning/knitting lately, though I have started spinning some lovely brown wool for a sweater that one day I will knit for Steve. Oh, and am finishing some socks for mum (xmas), after which I have to knit socks for dad – everyone for some reason wanted socks for christmas! In summer!
P.S. Oh, and how annoying is it that the NaNo forums are so totally clogged I can’t even hop on? Sheesh.
