What next?

Sisyphus - Tiziano Vecellio (Titian) -'Imagine Sisyphus happy,' my husband tells me when I've had a bad day at work. I'm not entirely sure if this is meant to cheer me up or not, since I only got through the first two pages of Camus' Myth of Sisyphus and I was still none the wiser.

In some senses though, I feel that I've outgrown the OU. Book blogging has opened up a whole new world of interests and opportunities.

    1. You're right Vee - there is so much else to do. The blogging is quite addictive, and I still have my Italian course to finish.


Long time, no see

I blame Facebook. And Twitter. And Whatsapp. Not to mention Cooking Fever and Candy Crush, both of which I've installed and deleted from...
