I, like almost everyone else it would seem, have caught the flu bug. I'm filling the days with a lot of reading and watching episodes of Downton Abbey. I grew quite fond of the way they speak and can't help but talk to myself in the same polite British accent. I'm a bit mad, but I'm ill so there you have it. I just finished reading The beautiful stories of life. I'm a fan of Greek myths and in this book some are retold in a very sweet way by Cynthia Rylant. It also comes with the most beautiful illustrations of Carson Ellis, who'm also illustrated Wildwood, which I'm reading now. So much fun all this time to read! I've also been doing something a little more useful and very exiting I think, I'm working on a new blog design! It will go live somewhere in February, it will be much like this design, but just a little bit different :).
