So, it’s time for another short and ultimately pointless post. I have been kind of distracted from the blog lately. I have managed to get a bit of reading of reading done, although in fairness some of that has been trashy literature that I could not not bring myself to bore you with. I did read ‘The Rape of the Lock’ by Alexander Pope, which I enjoyed. Another book that I have just started is ‘The Cement Garden’ by Ian McEwan, which I am enjoying. Still persevering with Homer’s, ‘The Odyssey’ and I aim to finish that within the next couple of weeks. Zola is still on stand by and I will start that after ‘The Cement Garden’, I expect, which shouldn’t be long.
I still haven’t gotten very far with my assignment for the writing course. I have about two sentences, so it’s a start. I need to be stricter with myself about that. It isn’t that I don’t have the time. I just find that I don’t have the inclination at the moment, although I am sure that will return. I suppose it is because it is something that is new to me, having to actually write about a particular thing, rather than just random musings. I want to do a good job of it and so I end up spending more time thinking about what I am going to do than actually doing it.
Summer appears to have vanished yet again. We had a few bright days near the end of May and it looked like summer had finally arrived and then it just upped sticks and left, probably never to return. It is now just grey and cold again. I even had the heat on for a couple of hours last night – in June!
So, sorry for the pain you must have suffered if you have made it this far through my post. Have a good day/evening.
