You may well have read about my new cupboard, and if so then you’ll be aware that the tasks are going well. Beam beam.
It has become obvious throughout our search, that I am an optimist. I mean, I knew it before, but cupboard buying, just really slapped me in the face with the information. Every single cupboard I approached was too big. Some by as much as 40cm which meant I was actually estimating the space at home at one and a half times its actual size. Hubby (a pessimist) on the other hand, was almost right, but erred on a little too small. Of course, each time he pointed out a possibility to me, I thought that’s tiny (which is why we had to take a tape measure everywhere we went).
I’ve started my first German novel. One I had been given as a gift some time ago. I misread the opening paragraph as something like ‘…he butchered his sister… and went to a prostitute…’ So I threw down the dictionary and asked hubby what on earth was what. Actually, the lead character had smashed open his piggy bank and then gone on to a prostitute. At least I got the prostitute bit right. So I picked up the dictionary again and am presently on page twelve. I did stop for a moment to wonder though, why my friends are giving me books about prostitutes…
I also watched a film: The Kid, which was horrible, but good, if you know what I mean.
You may have noticed a new list on the right hand side of my page. I’ve listed all the bloggers who are currently taking part in the challenge, with a direct link to their task lists, that way you can check how they’re doing any time you like and offer them encouragement. We are three at the moment, but I have had serious interest from at least another three bloggers.
The blog count, including this now sits at 23/303. Good going for me!!
