Wednesday September 29th 2010

YAAAAAWWWWWNNNN! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Yawn!  Feeling very tired today - keep falling asleep in my chair so I'm dosing myself with strong tea.  I'm sure I read once that chocolate has a lot of caffeine in it which is a good reason to get a pile in this afternoon. 

I have so much to do - gotta get through the whole of Ethan Frome by tomorrow to help a girl with her essay.  I'm so close to the end of the third try of my doiley and it's biloody typical that I now prefer my second draft!!!    So I want to be able to block it out and compare the two.  There is a mountain of stuff to photograph and catalogue for the website and my house needs decorating (although that might have to wait FOR  A FEW YEARS!)

It's my mum's birthday on Saturday and I want to make her some yarn ball pots.  I have the clay and I thought it would be lovely if my two boys painted one each for Grandma.  It's becoming touch and go whether they dry in time, though.  Better do that first. 

Right so priority list: 
  1. Stop faffing around with this blog and do some work
  2. Eat chocolate
  3. Make 2 yarn pots
  4. Eat chocolate and drink strong tea
  5. Finish reading Ethan Frome and put together an essay plan
  6. Eat chocolate, drink strong tea and eat more chocolate
  7. Finish and block doiley
  8. Pretend there is nothing else to do until tomorrow
  9. Celebrate with a slice of chocolate cake and a lovely cup of tea
