Recent doings #32

I haven’t done one of these for a while… not since I stopped using this format for the What’s New With You link up. Now seemed like a good time for one. Most people call these kinds of post “Currently” and I think maybe there’s a link up with specific prompts? I don’t know. I just grabbed these ones off the top of my head. Anyway, here are a few things I’ve been doing recently. Enjoy!


Eating. I’ve become weirdly obsessed with dried apricots. At least it’s something healthy, I guess? They make a good snack and it means I’m actually getting fruit into me without having to eat like six plums at once because everything always starts to go bad within a couple of days.

Reading. I’m technically currently reading Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl but I haven’t picked it up for a week. The last book I finished was Eeny Meeny by M.J. Arlidge.

Watching. I pretty much only watch TV when Jan’s home – I don’t feel compelled to switch it on the minute I sit down like he does. Lately he’s been flicking to The Repair Shop (but we always miss the beginning) and it’s such heart warming, wholesome TV. Soon I want to start a re-watch of Buffy the Vampire Slayer – I got the entire box set for my birthday.

Listening to. Jan and I started listening to the Good Omens radio play. It was on BBC Radio 4 Extra, so we listened to the first two episodes there, but then it became unavailable so we found episode three elsewhere. We need to listen to the rest, but for that Jan would need to have time… (By the way, episode one has a cameo from Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, which I thought was awesome.)

Making. Halloween cards for Post Pals. I have about 10, I need 41 (last year I think I made 50, so it’s a little less crazy at least).

Buying. Way too many books, as always. If you’re wondering, I mostly get them from Better World Books (used – I very rarely buy new books for myself).

Wondering. How and where we acquired so much stuff! Clutter… clutter everywhere. Sometimes I’m tempted to just start ruthlessly culling things.

I can’t think of anything else, so I’ll leave it here. What have you been up to lately? Care to share some recent doings in the comments?
By the way, the photo at the top has nothing to do with anything in this post, I just wanted to put something there. You’re welcome.

  1. Clutter drives me nuts, too. And I don’t usually watch TV without K. When we fly I download episodes of stuff in case my book isn’t distracting enough (from my fear of flying) and I always get stuck on what to download because I don’t watch anything. Haha.

    1. I usually listen to music when I fly. It’s the only time I actually remember that my phone contains music that can be listened to. Haha. I couldn’t watch TV shows on a plane since the only laptop I have is from work.

    1. My problem is I don’t actually want to get rid of any of my stuff. We have way too much, but when I think about what to get rid of I realise I actually like me things, or I plan to actually use them at some point when I find time.

  2. Apricots? Hmmm, curious! I am glad you are finding a fruity snack you like to snack on! I’ve been eating lots of raspberries, blackberries and pears. Mmmmmm!!!
    I also am feeling the clutter but I suspect I have a LOT more than you!!! I do somehow hate Marie Kondo mentioned above though- when I hear her name, I hiss inwardly! You made SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many cards! That is amazing! I am in awe1
