Because it is all about me. And what I want. And I kind of would like to keep a record of what I read in 365 days. I have no idea how many books I go through in a year. I think I read pretty voraciously. And across all sorts of fiction genres (for some reason I don't do a lot of non-fic). Now that I back at work (and am now officially back to all work all the time) I am taking the train every day and reading lots again. I've read some great things this year too. But I can no longer be sure what I did finish in January so I think I am going to start this record at the first of March. What has passed through my hands?
So I am sure you have missed me. I did have the child. End of May. On a Tuesday. Because surgeons don't like to schedule c-sections on a bank holiday Monday. He is fabulous. Happy, social and only now starting to toy with the forces of destruction. Of course we nearly killed him, his second night home. His big sister, the blessing tried to drown him in the bath. Alright, she only dropped him, but still there was frantic calls to the out of hours doctors, a rush up to Belfast and I now know the Royal Hospital for Sick Children far better than I ever wanted to. Its a great facility. The Blessing Mk II has been three times now. I know where to park, when the lift stops working and how to keep the original blessing entertained in the waiting room.

Just like the state of nature, nasty, brutish and short...I was always fond of the nickname 'Craxi'...Sometimes I cook, sometimes I tend bar, sometimes I even knit. Mostly I try not to read the plethora of government publications that cross my desk and write one page summaries.
