Better Success, whippet tank

Term has started again, so it’s back to the slog of study work study work with not a lot of time for anything else. Oh well, only 6 more weeks… (and few weeks studying for the exam, and the exam itself…) and then I’ll be free! Well, semi-free, anyway. At least I’ll be finished with Spanish.

We did the Riccarton thing again on Saturday, but managed to be more restrained on the spending front this time – just got some bits and pieces to contribute to the hug box (I will explain this eventually, just not yet), and had lunch in a nice little cafe that I’ve walked past I don’t know how many times and never actually gone in before now. A pity I didn’t have a book with me to release, because it looked like it might be a pretty bookcrossing-friendly place. Maybe next time.

Otherwise, nothing of note happening, other than work stuff, which is pretty boring (and not really worth the risk of writing about here – I don’t know if anyone in NZ has been sacked yet for blogging about their work, but it’s got to be only a matter of time).

I have had a couple of catches in the last few days, though. Both from the 150th celebrations, and both picked up by people from out of town: The Killing Anniversary by Ian St. James, picked up by someone from Timaru, and Another Time, Another Place by Jessie Kesson, picked up by someone from Dunedin.

  1. I’ve never heard of book crossing before but it sounds like something I’d love to do as I am a bookworm and have more books than I can shake a stick at!

    Thanks for the idea 😉
