How to Rearrange Your Room Without Moving the Furniture

If there’s one thing I enjoy doing, it’s moving the furniture. Plotting future moves is almost as much fun.

Earlier this year I cooked up a delicious plan in which work desks (2) would be moved out of the living room into the kitchen, and the dining table would be moved into the living room, where it could enrich its life by doubling as a sewing table, writing table, games table, etc, etc, without being surrounded by cold air (the kitchen faces south-east) and the smells of cookery.

A table in the living room – happy thought indeed!
There was just one hitch in my plan.

In Which I Appear on Social Media

You can now find me on Goodreads! To the surprise of certain of my connections who never thought to see me on social media (and who clearly don’t use Ravelry).

Should you wish to know what I am reading/have read, and on occasion, what I thought of it, pop along to my page and have a rummage.


Full disclosure: I have read more than 48 books in my lifetime. (Surprise!) But one cannot spend all day marking books as read, particularly when one does not remember them in intimate detail. Work in progress, although I don’t think I will bore you all by recording absolutely every book I read, or even every re-read. Too much admin, as a friend of mine wisely says.

If you are a Goodreads user yourself, feel free to make a connection. You can also ask me questions about my work and life as a writer, but then, you’ve always been able to do that here, too.

And yes, I have read Restoration Day, but I haven’t marked it as read, thus avoiding any embarrassment contingent on being asked for my candid opinion of it.
