Hot Water Bottle Covers!!! I can't stop.
I've managed 2 large cushions, 3 bottle covers, a patch for my jeans, a little drawstring bag that I wear on a piece of string around my neck when I haven't got a pocket, a shoe bag and I still have leftovers...all from a $5 single blanket and an old pillowcase.
Talk about loaves and fishes.
Watching; Easy Virtue. Loved it, and I am struck down with a big girlie crush on Kristen Scott Thomas, gorgeous. Did you know she speaks perfect French too? It's beautifully adapted from the Noel Coward play and well cast to say the least.
Listening: Charlie Parker, although I don't really do jazz. I've always put it in the same box as Country and Western, but I really enjoyed The Yardbird Suite. You have to be in the mood...I found Sunday lunch prep' and late night baking (where I'm alone in the kitchen and no-one is hovering hungrily) were the perfect settings. Normal service has now been restored with Joy Division and The Clash at the helm (mixed metaphor, but you get my drift), but who knows, there could yet be a place on my iPod for Kenny Rogers!
Reading; Sole Survivor, Derek Hansen. A very enjoyable read which I gobbled up in day or so.
Loners, remote island, Japanese fishing fleet, psycho analyst...excellent!
