Term began some weeks ago and as predicted, I have found myself quite busy. Museum work, PhD work, PGCF (Postgraduate Christian Forum), Renaissance Singers choir, spending time with friends and with someone particular, have all amounted to a very busy bee. Or at least, one who is not often at her computer with time to blog.
So yes, I know I haven’t gotten around to posting pictures from my trip to Poland, which was, yes, a month ago now.
And yes, I know, I have been less regular with my book reviews. I finished Miracle on the River Kwai last Saturday night and realised with a shock that it was half-way through October and I had only read one book.
Which leads to another confession, dear readers: I will not be doing NaNoWriMo this year. The 1st of October has passed and I am not among those who have registered, with novel idea and title already in mind. While I do have five novels waiting in my head, now is not the time to write them. Not when I have a PhD thesis to finish. Not when I have other things in which I gladly want to invest my time. I have barely enough time to read fiction, let alone write fiction.
So there you have it. My apologies for my present radio silence and an explanation for why it might not change anytime soon.
