reading, planning...







i'm not much of a reader, certainly not fiction. I haven't read a novel for years, I just don't have the attention span for it, but when it comes to gardening and cook books I can spend hours pouring over the pages and pictures feeling inspired, plotting and planning with my notebook. luckily we have a really well stocked local library which is helping to fuel things along and at the moment thinking about a polytunnel is taking up some serious brain space, but we shall see...

in other news, I have been doodling and have a small itch in the back of my brain to draw.

and if you've tried to contact me at all in the past few months i've been meaning to say - my website is down! - and i don't know when it will be back up (it's a long story) but if you've emailed me since the end of july i would not have got your message.

try olivia.jeffries (@!) hotmail.com instead

It's so nice to see a post from you! I'm not much of a fiction reader either. Actually, I only seem to finish reading novels when they're written in the first person hahaa. On the other hand, I read many non-fiction books from cover to cover. So funny, isn't it :-)

hellooo! I know, I'm a bit pre-occupied with non creative things these days :)

I think I like to learn things as i read and would dearly love to read a story but just can't do it!!

Pictures are so much more interesting than words, at least I think so!

I'm definitely a more visual person, pictures help keep me focused on reading :)
