So, what's new with me? Nothing much, really. I'm still chugging along with my health and exercise regime, although it has taken a serious hit since the Christmas break with lots of pigging out while I was overseas for work and a holiday. I'm resuming with it though, so hopefully I will reach my goal -- if only I can resist all the bad stuff! As for wedding plans, we still hope for a wedding in September, although we're fast approaching it and we still are being absolute slackers and haven't done much. I'm sure we'll get there once we start panicking although I sure hope it doesn't get to that stage! I still haven't fully settled in with my new role at work but I think it's a matter of mindset and getting out of my comfort zone, and I will get there eventually.
I also started a book blog. I know what you're thinking, she can barely keep up with one, and now she's starting another? Is the woman mad or what?! My book blog is purely for sharing what I think about the books I read. Unlike stitching, reading is something that I can keep up with, although not as much as I would like to. A book is easy for me bring around anywhere, although I know the dedicated stitchers will probably say the same about their projects. When I joined BookCrossing, I picked up the habit of putting in journal entries for books I read and I would like to continue that for books that aren't registered on BookCrossing. By no means am I a book reviewer, I just share what I think, regardless of popular opinion. There aren't many books on there yet, but feel free to visit: A Rainbow of Books.
Before I go, I will leave you with a picture of my RR (from two years ago, and still not complete!) with my square finished. Well, technically it's still missing my signature, but at least the square is all stitched. It's not something I did recently, I think I finished it somewhere between August and October last year? I had hoped to only share it after I've signed it, and I said I would do it last year, but here we are in 2008 and it's still at where I've left it. Hopefully I'll get to the signature and the middle section sometime this year. To my RR mates, Harmien, Annemarie and Mady, aren't I the most pathetic RR partner ever?! I don't know if my RR mates will read this but I promise, I will e-mail a picture of a complete RR one of these days, even if it only comes years later!
Well, that's it from me, and hopefully it won't be another 7 months before I check in next. I hope it has been a great start to the year for all of you and I wish everyone well for 2008!
