Days like Friday are happening with terrifying regularity. I’m starting to waste ridiculous amounts of time. I am assuming, rather hopefully, that this is because I feel I am getting to the closing stages of my book – and its hard. Whenever I seem to get to a slight hiccup or a section I am dreading to tackle, I find all manner of things to occupy my time.
Emailing was a big thing for Friday. I emailed A LOT. I also did a lot of wandering again on the internet (I swear some days it is the worst possible invention). But, if I can put some of this procrastinating to good use, I feel it is somehow justified. I know its not, but let me dream! So this post was actually constructed on Friday to alleviate my guilt of not finishing Day 6 of my tale.
It initially began when I fell upon the site The Literary Gift Company. There were so many unique and fun things to view for all lovers of literature. Here are just a couple of little gems of joy (click images for their web pages). . .
But this pendant put me in mind of a post I wrote way back when, Alice. Again! This was around the time Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland hit the cinemas and trawled Etsy to find glorious treats in honour of this Literature Legend. So, I took to Etsy again, looking for Literature gifts that could provide inspiration for others. Here are some that appeal to me . . .
But then, I was struck by the Pride and Prejudice quote, “Obstinate, headstrong girl!” (from something I saw) which led me to Zazzle and these few bits and bobs . . .
But, my personal fave of the day was found at Cafe Press Shop . . .
So, that was my happy trawling! I am sure between now and the season of goodwill I will undoubtedly share more posts like this in an attempt to make your seasonal shopping experiences more pleasurable!!
Right, Monday means work. Wish me luck!
