Wool house

If I hadn't had other things to do this weekend, I would've gone here for some constructive knitting.

Sadly, I was glued to my desk. Well, not glued exactly. I did sneak away to Richard's granny's house for a short spell of cake-eating and seeing lots of relatives, amongst them the redoubtable great-uncle Aubrey, who celebrates his 90th birthday today surrounded by sixty or so members of his clan.

I, however, have spent the day here.

They say a tidy desk is the sign of someone with work to do. If only that were the sign. Unfortunately, in my case indications include grating my finger along with a carrot because I'm in too much of a hurry and - my most endearing foible - telling everyone I meet the latest interesting fact I have managed to cram into my head in an attempt to lodge it there.

What did you do this weekend?

(By the way, see the little green-and-white creature overseeing my revision? One of these days, I'll tell you all about him. Right after I've tidied my desk).

good grief! I was under the impression that you just had to take an exam or two...looks like you're really in it for the long haul.

this weekend I ate lots of meat and slept in :)

I think you should blog some interesting facts! Here's mine for the day: the top of Everest is as high as an airplane flies. See? It's my foible too.

Keep plugging, and I agree, you should post some of this stuff you're learning, I'm curious.
This weekend my boyfriend and I went for a hike and then stopped at a cherry orchard where you could pick your own cherries. They're much cheaper that way!

At least you have a wonderful view out the window. I would spend to much time day dreaming while looking at that view.

I used to do the same when I was trying to memorize facts...drove my roommates crazy. :) Are the exams mostly organic chem and bio and anatomy?
The knitting event sounds quite intriguing. Hope you get to go once the exams come to an end.
