Bits I don't like so much about the summer: - the heat. Yes, it is… - Echoes of Flavio's Ghost Dreaming

Bits I don't like so much about the summer:

- the heat. Yes, it is absurd, I grew up and lived half my life in a place that is probably hotter than here. All the same, I find it difficult to function when it's hot, I get slow and lethargic.

- the much reduced income. This has, surprisingly, not been so bad this year; almost enough of my pupils have stuck around having lessons through this time for me to pay my bills. Almost enough.

Bits I do like:

- being able to get up at 9:00 am. I'm not a morning person.

- being able to spend a lot of time reading and mucking about with guitars. Have a few books on the go at the moment, mainly 'Rivers of London' by Ben Aaranovitch (set reading for the next bibliogoth meeting), which is not the deepest book I've read, say, but is a lot of fun, thus far. Also slowly making my way through Melwyn Bragg;s The Adventure of English (a history of the English language) and the Apocalypse Codex by Charlie Stross.

Yay for getting up at 9am!
And yay/boo to the heat. I understand the lethargy, and I'm fortunate my place gets a through-draft... on the other hand it's been really nice going out without a jacket, shame that's come to an end!

That, too. September is going to be a bit difficult for me in several ways...

Talking to 3 people at Loncon this morning one said she'd just started reading Rivers of London. The other three of us, in perfect synch. sighed with envy that someone had the joy of reading it for the first time.

Erm ... I really like those books :-)

I can see that! Enjoying it a lot thus far :) silkyraven met the author, Ben Aaranovitch, the other day and she says he's a 'really, really nice chap', which also made me smile.

I know! Now I'll have to find something else to blame for being slow and lethargic! :D
