Well, hello there! So, if you’re anything like me, you’re sitting about in your dressing-gown trying to get some work done*, catching up on laundry, contemplating what kind of new start you should be having for the new year, and eyeing up the last half-dozen mince pies.
If you are not doing this, congratulations! Those of you with actual non-pyjama pants on, I salute you. Here, have a mince pie. They’re M&S, you know. Very tasty indeed.
In the meantime, I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to do with this blog. So far, it’s mainly been a place for me to ramble on about my various opinions on things. While that’s lovely and all, I have a few other ideas for semi-regular things I’d like to include which could vary it up a bit, most of which are rather more closely related to my real life than I’d originally intended this blog to be. So in 2011, expect to see a lot (more) of the following:
Conversations I Have With People On Trains And Buses While I Am Knitting And Commuting
I may need an ever-so-slightly snappier title for this one. However, my current job involves an awful lot of travelling around the country. Since I don’t yet drive**, that involves a lot of time on buses and trains. To keep myself entertained, I knit! And you know something? Picking up a pair of sticks and some yarn in a public place makes all the awesomest old ladies want to talk to you.
Nifty Pictures I Have Taken
Like I said above, I spend an awful lot of time on buses and trains. And bus stops, and train stations, wandering down adorable little country roads and exploring towns and villages. I like to bring my camera along! It would be nice to pop up a post of Nifty Pictures What I Have Taken every week or two. These might even involve pictures I have taken of things which I have made while having conversations with people on buses and trains. You never know! This, by the way, is also my way of getting myself to get off my bum and actually upload pics from my camera more than once every few months.
And that will be that. I don’t want to overload with a whole lot of new things to write about and end up giving up after a month. And I think that Pictures, Conversations On Trains, and Opinions I Have On Things are a pretty good start, all told.
Hope you’re all having a good start to the year!
