So. Hallowe'en, Bonfire Night - they've all floated past me, with little celebration. It seems to be nearly winter, and I only just noticed. The weeks go by, and what have I to show for them? Admin. Phone calls, and meetings, and files full of papers relating to Eldest's new secondary school career. There are battles ahead. This parenting business never gets dull.
And while we're on the subject of administration, why did no-one warn me quite how much organisation was involved in quilting? I'm surrounded by Post-It notes and carefully-counted bits of fabric. It's a little bit like going to work (if we don't count the fabric). I've resisted the temptation to make a spreadsheet.
And while we're on the subject of Post-Its, this is my Pinterest-inspired Nerve Centre. The to-do list hidden inside my desk drawer was making me nervous. Getting it out in the open - on the kitchen noticeboard - has made things a lot easier. And it's very satisfying, scrumpling up the sticky notes on which a task is written when it's finally done.
And while we're on the subject of writing, I learned how to write my name in Circular Gallifreyan over the holiday, and had it screen printed onto a bag. If anyone can read this, please don't give away my secret. This is an anonymous blog.
And while we're on the subject of anonymity, I've been getting zillions of comments recently from unknown people, merely repeating phrases that have appeared on my blog. Obviously it's spam and I've reported it as such. But I wondered if anyone else has ever had the same problem, and if it finally went away? Here's hoping.
