Editing & Becoming Jane

After a quiet weekend of doing very little, I spent this morning editing and then the postman very thoughtfully dropped off a little package from Amazon. "What another one," said husband arriving home for a spot of lunch at the same time. "Surely you've bought everything they have on offer."

I didn't like point out that I still have many items either pre-ordered or simply in my head waiting for a time when I shall no doubt give in and buy them too. What he doesn't know won't hurt him and the fact that my tbr piles are growing faster than I can read the books is surely a relatively harmless vice and one that I have no intention of giving up.

Anyhow, I digress. I spent a pleasant afternoon becoming absorbed in this lovely film. I don't care how accurate it may be, I thoroughly enjoyed watching it and will no doubt watch it again at some point.

Right, I have to go now and watch the edited version of the Oscars on Sky One with dd.

I must that film. I've heard such good things about it.

I think in the scheme of vices, Amazon is pretty mild. And I've got it under control ... just:-)

I'm very glad to know I'm not the only one with the "large tbr pile" vice! I'm having to studiously avoid Amazon for a while, it's hard work! :-)

lane - it was a great escapism watch, I did enjoy it. I really must try and refrain from visiting Amazon for a while.

Absolute vanilla (& atyllah) - I have so many books that I want to read 'next' that I take an age to decide on which one but I love having the choice.
