Livejournal worked for about ten minutes yesterday - long enough to make an asinine post, but not long enough to reply to any comments thereon.

Today is the last day of my holidays. Tomorrow I return to the world of work.

I have not accomplished all that I wished to, but I have made rather a lot of beetles, glued them to my fingers, burned my fingers on the hot glue, made a white peacock, acquired a blister on my finger from smoothing fimo/hot glue, made three fimo bowls, read a lot of fanfic, not real fic, and Jonathan Stranger remains unattempted.

My new year's resolutions are to read more, to read even more, to do more art, and generally get out and about more. And to finish making my Eyes of Shiv

My mother's new year's resolution for me is that I will be taking more exercise. We shall see sbout that.

I really am going to have to start seeling some of my crafts on etsy - or giving them away to unsuspecting innocents, as I am running out of room for it all.

I am reading Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell right now actually. If you haven't you should.

Have a marvelous year!

I enjoyed it; my current phone is named Jonathan now. (I am still dubious of the wisdom of naming the emergency-potential-replacement phone that [personal profile] norabombay sent me "Mr. Norrell", but that's his name.)
