Long time, no blog

I would love to say that my absence has been caused by a fit of essay writing and hard work... Well sort of. The internet has been down at my house for well over a week, and as I only get 39 mins at the local library (why 39 mins? it's a mystery), I've not been able to write properly. Also, with the essay writing that needed to be done, I have actually been working....
So news... I have new glasses (if I could work out how to take a picture I would); I was sent a red rose and chocolates last Wednesday; my friend Beth is getting married :) ; Teechers is up and running again (I will update Adventures in Amateur Dramatics soon!); I'm applying to Greenwich University for next year.
I think that's it... Life sort of just barrels on, without a by-or-leave! OOOh I am re-reading all the Anne of Green Gables books, and am now at the penultimate one. I swear I read these books over and over when I was little, but Anne's House of Dreams seems almost brand new to me. Hmmm...

Holiday plans are afoot, and I may well be able to go away earlier in June than I was expecting. The choice is now between Morocco and Croatia, so I am busy reading my Lonely Planets trying to make a decision. Not that Phil won't be involved too....

Back to reading about mathematical development in children. I am hoping that it will soon become plain why I am so terrible at Maths. Then again, maybe not...

Anne of Green Gables! I read that oh-so-many times when I was little, too! Wow, good old Anne and Gilbert. Are they as good as you remember? Maybe I should dig mine up too! It would be light relief from '1984', which I am slogging through at the moment. (Actually, slogging is a bit harsh - after a whole load of chapters about the new language and political atmosphere, it's just gotten exciting, with love scenes and everything - plus I think the two protagonists will be executed/vaporised quite soon.)

I have just re-read that sentence. Am I trying to say that books without executions or sex scenes are rubbish? Hmm...

Oh, if you love Anne, you should also try (if haven't already) I Capture the Castle, and The Making of a Marchionness.

I love love love "I Capture the Castle". I was introduced to it when I was at uni, and I read it whenever I feel down. "Hot baths and a good book are the cure for depression" - so true!! I will look up the other one...
Anne and Gilbert are just as I remember them, and I'm sure Gilbert is just as dreamy as he was when I first watched the video of Anne!
I have never read "1984" but feel I should...you'll have to tell me if it's worth the slog! xxx

Oooooh I love the Anne of Green Gables books!

And what are you applying for this year - you really are going to be the eternal student aren't you!
