Absent blogger (again!)

Hmm, my life in a nutshell.
  • Working, kids been ok.
  • Dancing, has been fun and learning new steps, and muchly improvement on technique. Just for the record, I have issues with the latin technique, since I am a gymnast at heart. Completely different type of body movement. I need to learn to loosen my hips and not lock my muscles all the way from my toes to my fingers like I do for gym!
  • Have found out that one of the guys who goes to dance class used to do gymnastics. And it was a loooong time ago, judging from the coaches he remembers!
  • Still on the subject of dancing, I have been managing to dodge crappy partners, for the most part! And still haven't been able to get hold of my cousin so he can save me!!
  • Looking for cheap books. Have suddenly and inexplicably developed the need to justify buying of books. This is a very new thing for me. If there was anything in the whole world I never regret doing, it's buying books. Probably due to the fact that I have found some online sites where I can get books for about $10, and book shops are charging $20.
  • Still looking online for pretty clothes. The dress I bought arrived on Monday, and here it is:

Msings for the day

Hmm, work goes on, and I really don't think anyone there has a clue what's going on because I have to do an hour of one class, then swap to another???

Am stitching madly lately. Have almost finished my second page. There shall be a triumphant return to S&B, oh yes there will!

Have also been spending time with some new friends; Anita Blake (by Laurell K. Hamilton), Damali Richards (by L.A. Banks), Elena Michaels (by Kelley Armstrong) and Mercy Thompson (Patricia Briggs). I have discovered a new genre and so many new books to read!!! I was getting a bit bored with the fantasy stuff, because a lot of the books can be very similar, so am loving meeting new characters. Very cool. Am raiding the local libraries for said books, but once I get a bit more money together, I might start buying some of the books. Have been searching on the net and I can get a lot of them quite cheap.

Am also buying cheap clothes off Ebay.

Loving dance classes on Tuesday nights. Am not loving dance partners who can't lead and don't know the steps, but still try to correct me. Am also cranky at certain scoundrels who leave me with said dance partners. Hmph.

Very looking forward to Lughnasa tonight. Hooray!!
